20-year history of solving customer TMS challenges and delivering value

MercuryGate Offers a Better Way To TMS

The transportation management system (TMS) marketplace typically forces you to choose between feature-rich systems that are hard to deploy and use and TMS lite solutions that lack the power to manage complexity. MercuryGate lets you transcend that tradeoff through our unique combination of power and usability to drive ROI that competitors can’t reach.

Best practice Deployment and scalability are built in

MercuryGate enables users to rapidly deploy and configure their system to meet their business models today as well as tomorrow. The MercuryGate transportation management platform automates the full transportation life cycle across all modes, including natively built-in robust parcel capabilities.

For years we have worked closely with top tier third-party logistics providers (3PLs), shippers, brokers, carriers, and freight forwarders to develop a myriad of configuration options that can readily be applied to support business needs. And users have the capability to set up unique workflows and processes at a granular level – customer, carrier, vendor or business unit.

Access Time-Saving Transportation Management Tools

Carrier Compliance and Contract Management
Scaling available resources is necessary to grow, but it comes with added compliance concerns. Instead of hoping new carriers maintain compliance and adhere to contracts, guarantee it with MercuryGate’s time-saving platform. When things go wrong, use system data to increase negotiating power and force the arms of your carriers back into compliance.
Agent Delegation

Delegate subsets of workflow processes to trusted agents, while still maintaining full visibility. Agent delegation also plays a role in connecting the MercuryGate platform to third-party service providers, such as freight forwarders and brokers that may not always be in control of their freight and rely on carriers for information. It’s the ultimate way to bypass traditional carrier limitations and ensure maximum control over operations.

CRM Lite

MercuryGate also provides customer management to control credit risk and manage customer call logs. CRM Lite is a free benefit to all MercuryGate clients and gives more freedom to better manage interactions between clients and customers, a critical aspect for freight brokers, freight forwarders, LSPs, and other supply chain partners.

Master Customer Record

No other system can provide controlled visibility at all levels and a single view of customer data across a whole organization. Paired with indices, the master record gives your organization an opportunity to isolate costs per customer and better manage freight to meet customers’ changing demands.

Customer and Vendor Portals
Provide visibility to customers and vendors via a portal that can be deployed in minutes. Dedicated portals further reduce the need to constantly answer questions and review shipment status.

Achieve Total Transport Leverage

By focusing exclusively on TMS software for two decades, the MercuryGate architecture has evolved into a singularly streamlined platform for superior transport management. We call this Total Transport Leverage™ (TTL), the new standard in TMS logistics. Total Transport Leverage means you are effectively leveraging time, people, information, opportunity, efficiency and innovation for real bottom-line impact.
