Affordable TMS new Professional Edition

Today, ShippersEdge a pioneer in web-based Shipping Management Software announced a new more affordable TMS with a new version specifically catering to smaller manufacturers and distributors. Shipment Management Software also known as Transportation Management Software or TMS for short is the next big thing for operational efficiency in logistics and transportation management.

ShippersEdge Professional offers less-than-truckload [LTL] rating, LTL rate comparison tendering (electronic request for pickup), shipment tracking and freight charge monitoring through direct contact with motor carrier servers. The professional edition will also compare truckload rates. Our logistics management software takes the pain out of manually sourcing freight rates through carrier websites because it will retrieve freight rates and present them all on one screen. This makes freight planning painless and quick.

A shipping management system is now more than just LTL rating software; it should do more than that and our does. Pricing plans starting at $199.00 per month with unlimited users.

Software replace third party logistics provider

If you’re struggling with how to replace third party logistics provider [3PL] see what we have to say about it below.

If you presently engage an outside firm to manage your transportation, consider for a moment why. When you signed up, they had software; expensive shipping management software. If it was long ago, they may have had rates that were better than yours. Things have changed.

Today a TMS is highly affordable as is the integration to your back-office systems. Small, stand-alone Transportation Management Systems can be had for but a few hundred dollars a month and our Enterprise versions start at about $500.00 a month and goes up from there depending on shipment counts.

As far as rates, carriers have moved away from blanket discounts and into shipper specific pricing. You may not have noticed the change but your 3PL now knows you can take your rates with you. Consider the pricing above against a typical 7% and sometimes up to 20% is the typical 3PL management fee and you do the math and then contact us.
