Better Cost Control with Multimodal Freight Rate Management
Many TMS solutions pigeonhole freight into very specific mode restrictions. This causes users to miss out on major savings opportunities that could have been gained with greater breadth. In addition to showing all major modes, the MercuryGate freight rate management engine includes rates extended directly by carriers, third-party logistics providers (3PLs), and brokers.
Use multimodal freight rate management to:
Easily make comparisons that reveal the impact of cost and service on value. For example, contrast the cost and arrival time of a move via air vs. an ocean move. Regardless of complexity, multimodal rating pinpoints the best mode options across parcel, truckload, LTL, air, and ocean.
Often the gray areas between different modes, or drayage, is where costs can skyrocket. Multimodal rating can natively rate shipments across multiple geographies and the full scope of inbound, outbound, inter-company, backhauls, returns and final mile inclusive of dray costs.
Multimodal rate management does not end with finding a good rate. Rate indexing enables analysis of your transportation spend in comparison to the industry at large. Use anonymized data from over $100 billion in FUM, to create lane-specific benchmarks for use in future rating and determine actual spend by mode and service type.
