MercuryGate Announces Dynamic Exchange Offering Faster, Easier Access to Capacity
Cary, N.C. – MercuryGate International, Inc., a leader in Transportation Management System (TMS) solutions, announced today the launch of MercuryMart, a dynamic information exchange providing TMS users with access to a broad range of sources of available capacity. This meta-marketplace seamlessly connects companies requiring capacity with open-market capacity providers, enabling new levels of visibility and analytics.
“Having adequate capacity is critical to supply chain execution, and MercuryMart provides shippers with access to a larger set of suppliers faster than ever before, all from their TMS platform,” said Monica Wooden, CEO and Co-Founder of MercuryGate International, Inc.
“For brokers, freight forwarders, or third-party services providers, MercuryMart offers a competitive advantage by enabling them to meet their customers’ capacity needs quickly and seamlessly.”
With MercuryMart, suppliers can self-integrate into the exchange using a new set of secure application programming interfaces (APIs). In most systems, third-party providers can only leverage providers established within their TMS instance. MercuryMart enables a global search capability across MercuryMart’s many integrated providers. Users also benefit from a new quote search tool that can be customized based on defined pools of acceptable providers, constraints, and carrier and contract preferences.
“Collaborative supply chains are driving manufacturer growth and logistics innovation because sharing technology and excess capacity improves overall efficiency for all stakeholders,” said Monica Wooden. “We are pleased to lead this industry transformation.”
At its core, MercuryGate strives for MercuryMart to be the open meta marketplace for modern logistics—creating simple, intelligent exchanges between those who need capacity and capacity suppliers.
