Truck freight brokers and third party logistics providers can now access spot market and contract rates, validate carriers' CSA scores, authority, and insurance certificates, integrate agents' financial statements, and track carriers they've done business with, using TransCore's Keypoint Logistics Software.

New features include:

- Real Time Rates: TransCore's Truckload Rate Index is now integrated into Keypoint's order entry screen to display the current spot market rates and contract rates, as well as the rate history for a given lane.

- Offered Loads: An available load can be entered into the system and posted directly on load boards even if the intermediary has not yet committed to cover it.

- Single Screen: The addition of a check call feature completes the tool set accessible from a single order entry display.

- Constant Contact: Email is automated throughout the Keypoint system, to streamline communication with customers and vendors.

- Carrier Validation: Keypoint now offers direct access to carrier safety data on the FMCSA website as well as integration with TransCore's CarrierWatch insurance certificate service and carrier monitoring.

- Agent Financials: New, integrated financial statements for agents include balance sheets and income statements. Agent financials can be managed as separate divisions or profit centers.

- Equipment History: Keypoint users can track all carriers who have done business with them in a given geographic area, using a radius search.

Keypoint is a single-entry system managing a 3PL's sales, finances and operations, providing back office and managerial analytics to spot productivity and customer trends.
