Tap into the Most Data-Rich Freight Rate Index Available

Assess All Transportation Activity from Origin Through Last Mile

Compare shipment costs against the rate index tool to determine real rate competitiveness. Whether it’s truckload, less than truckload, intermodal, parcel, ocean, air, or rail – our freight rate index tool has nearly three times more rate data than the largest transaction freight indexes.

It not only provides rates for all major modes, it also includes rates extended directly by carriers, third-party logistics providers (3PLs), and brokers. This empowers our customers to sell freight transportation with reliable and data-driven information even before they have secured a carrier. No other transportation management system (TMS) solution does that.

Comprehensive and Current Freight Rates for Bottom-Line Impact

Identify the opportunities that best support your business objectives. The freight rate index analyzes the data of $60B USD in customer freight under management. This provides both buy and sell rate information for all major modes, including last mile.

Industry Leading Freight Rate Index Functionality

An Agile Index That Moves with Your Business

The freight rate index is agile enough to be deployed in the ways that best support your business priorities. Whether working with spot, contract, buy, or sell rates, the market rate index can display freight modes ranging from truckload through final mile, and also includes carrier rates plus 3PL and broker rates.

Daily Data Cleansing and Updating

Updated nightly and scrubbed to preserve anonymity, customer rates are maintained separately from carrier rates. Contract rates and spot rates are also separately categorized by mode and type of service.

Customized Storage and Retrieval of Index Values 

Indexes can be stored on a load, as a benchmark, for future analysis on how the freight spend is measured up by mode and service. This depth of engagement helps guarantee our customers are provided the most accurate rates available.

Increased Visibility into the Final Mile
Freight rate index captures pricing data in granular detail. This allows a better view of your network performance and increased visibility into your total transportation spend.

Drill down into specifics regarding costs, such as typical driver wages, fleet charges versus broker fees, and more. The system can even compare data with other indexes, such as DAT’s RateView, to create a better picture of the full shipment lifecycle and its associated costs or influences.
