Even with tight capacity and spiking tender rejection rates, shippers still need competitive rates with carriers they can rely on. Integrating API-enabled dynamic freight pricing and order booking tools into your TMS is a direct way to ensure you’re always able to find and choose the best-vetted carrier to move your freight – regardless of market conditions.
1. Secure flexible, reliable capacity
2. Lower freight costs
Shippers can also use dynamic freight pricing to compare carrier rates with average lane rates and assess how competitive a rate is for a specific load and lane — maximizing their cost savings over time. By bridging the gap between static database information and real-time market insight, you can gain more transparency into your transportation costs, optimize mode selection, and eliminate other inefficiencies.
3. Save time and improve service
Dynamic Freight Pricing Meets Industry-Leading Technology
Traditional routing guides often offer outdated information that fails to reflect important shifts in key market variables, which leads to late pickups, higher than necessary logistics costs, and missed deliveries. With Loadsmart and MercuryGate’s digital freight TMS Integration, shippers can leverage the benefits of short-term access to capacity and competitive rates, as well as the strategic insights that come with market data.
