Make freight rates work for you and your objectives

Tap into the fast, agile rating functionality you need to find the lowest freight shipping costs while meeting and exceeding customer expectations. Coordinating with 3PLs and other service providers allows for more competitive bidding and rate procurement across all modes of transport. Rating automation delivers accurate, real-time, buy and sell market rates for all modes.

Leverage rating data to gain a competitive edge

Analyze multiple carrier proposals simultaneously, bid projects, and communicate long-term requirements to carriers to obtain contract pricing on mode-specific lanes.
Native Parcel Rating

Rate parcel delivery options for locations worldwide – not just the large North American parcel carriers – to unlock cost savings.

Loading meters
Especially important in Europe, where less-than-truckload (LTL) and groupage shipments require accurate loading meter determination. Compare rates and options to find the one that is most profitable and logical.
LTL density and linear feet rating

Few systems in the market – even those that can rate LTL freight – can accommodate pure density rating, cubic capacity, linear feet, and dim factors.

Schedule Rating
Evaluate rate and schedule together for air, ocean, and rail shipments. Rates are updated based on published schedules and manual schedule updates when requested.
Buy And Sell Contract Rating
Whether you are buying capacity (as a shipper) or selling capacity (as a logistics service provider), find accurate, timely rating information to assure market-relevancy.
Dynamic sell pricing
Dynamic determination of sell rates derived from benchmarks, gainshare agreements, spot rates, management fees, and uplifts from purchased transportation.
