Optimal Dynamics and Cargo Chief announced in a statement they are teaming up to bring freight planning technology to their customers by combining live market data with decision analytics. Users can use Optimal Dynamics' SaaS-based intelligent freight management system and Cargo Chief’s real-time freight pricing engine, simultaneously.
The partnership will provide users access to Optimal Dynamics’ advanced decision analytics capabilities with enhanced pricing information from Cargo Chief, proactively producing optimized freight recommendations. This additional market intelligence within the tool gives users the opportunity to choose better loads and quickly assess if they should be assigned to their asset or brokerage sides.
“Leveraging Optimal Dynamics alongside the real-time market rates from Cargo Chief will allow our customers to make even stronger freight management decisions and better allocate loads in their network,” said Andrew Brazell, Optimal Dynamics vice president of technology partnerships in the statement.
Optimal Dynamics users will gain access to Cargo Chief’s C4 real-time truckload lane pricing that provides a true prediction of the current market rates based on loads booked for up-to-the-minute accuracy. The combination of these data-driven systems will give customers access to accurate market information, the ability to assess profitability and network impacts, and then assign freight in a matter of minutes.
The integration will first be made available for mutual customers, then released for general availability at a later date.
