Balanced Service and Price Preferences Automation
Control the carrier routing to avoid utilizing carriers in geographic areas where service is sub-optimal. All carriers have strengths and weaknesses in their service territories. TrueRate enables you to take advantage of carriers where their rates are competitive and eliminate them where their service is sub-optimal. Access and Integration Access to the rating and routing engine is permitted in multiple methods. Most commonly users will want on-line access to the tool. The online access is permitted through a log on and enables different views of the rates and routes for Vendors, Sales, Customer Service, etc.; however this may not be the optimal routing due to changes in the order quantity or weight.
TrueRate has also been integrated to the execution tool (TrueDoc) in order to identify the optimal carrier at the point of shipment ensuring the most effective least cost provider has been selected. For those companies operating on their own TMS or technology platform TrueRate offers a web service integration process to automatically support the rating and routing process electronically.
