Five Important Features in TMS Software

Here are Five Important Features in TMS software found in ShippersEdge Professional Edition not found in other entry level web based freight shipping software.

There are many entry level Transportation Management Systems also known as Shipping Management Software on the market today. Most offer basic functionality like retrieving LTL carrier rates so you can compare LTL freight rates then select the best carriers and finally track your shipping. ShippersEdge offers an affordable logistics management system that goes far beyond the basics.

Here are Five Important Features in TMS software:

  1. Truckload rate management contract or spot market
  2. Spot market rate retrieval and management
  3. Route optimization for consolidated truckloads
  4. Ability to require reason codes for deviating from low cost provider
  5. Variance reporting on costs when not using least cost provider

ShippersEdge also flags exceptions, like reweighing and freight classification rate increases and transit problems. Our powerful address book allows for entering accessorial items such as lift-gate, inside delivery and residential delivery so you’re not surprised when the carrier’s invoice arrives. We communicate directly with LTL carriers several times each day, ensuring complete visibility of your shipping.

ShippersEdge offers a freight bill retrieval and audit function and can provide a freight accrual to your accounting department if required.

ShippersEdge is built for the future so as your business grows, we can grow with you, start with the Professional and as you grow, use our Enterprise Edition for even more value and capability.
