Flexibility to innovate as needed

Starting out as a carrier, this 3PL began outsourcing their fleet during downtimes, and offering logistics services. They needed a transportation management system (TMS) that was as flexible as they were to optimize across all of their activities and so they chose MercuryGate.
This 3PL wanted to leverage data to enhance their performance, so they used MercuryGate Business Intelligence to make it happen. They efficiently collect and analyze invaluable information that impacts  business performance. This includes individual key performance indicators (KPIs) and extensive carrier score carding, such as on-time pickup and delivery, electronic data interchange (EDI) compliance and tender acceptance to easily assess performance.

In this way, MercuryGate Business Intelligence enables this innovator to leverage data throughout the procurement life cycle to reduce risk and increase profitability.

Simplifying The Settlement Process ​

A progressive, fast-growing 3PL provider was struggling to manage all their transactions. Its legacy TMS simply couldn’t keep up. They were particularly challenged with settlement, as their existing audit system lacked the robust rating engine needed to effectively reconcile, audit, and settle accounts.

MercuryGate’s freight settlement solution allowed them to better leverage the volumes of data in their organization, and eliminate tedious and inefficient errors that had to be addressed manually. These errors not only cost money, but strained customer relationships as well.  

With MercuryGate, they were able to streamline settlement efforts by up to 75%. This made their accounting far more effective, while building customer relationships rather than breaking them down.
