Differentiate your organization through the platform that provides a logical and efficient way to model multi-enterprises within the domains of third-party logistics providers (3PLs), brokers, carriers, freight forwarders, and shippers. All roles, configurations, rule sets, references, processes, and code tables inherit down through your enterprise hierarchy and are available for future use to save time and resources.

The MercuryGate rate index tool contains a vast amount of rate data compared to other indices.

Broad Capacity Sourcing

Source capacity from contracts, the spot market, rate indexes, historical data queries, predictive analytics, a private fleet, or a specific carrier’s fleet. More capacity amounts to better freight rate management and lowers total freight spend.
