Transportation management system provider MercuryGate announced a partnership that will make Uber Freight’s carrier network available on MercuryGate’s TMS platform.
“Shippers need reliable information to drive speed and efficiency in their 24/7 operations,” said Joe Juliano, MercuryGate president and CEO. “By tapping into Uber Freight’s trusted carrier network, customers of all sizes can realize the benefits of a digital freight marketplace with access to real-time pricing and a vast network of available carriers and guaranteed capacity.”
The TMS platform will offer instant access to Uber Freight’s real-time pricing and freight lane capacity.
The rates are based on data from Uber Freight’s carrier network and proprietary pricing algorithms and move in accordance with market dynamics. The data on transparent market conditions can help logistics executives estimate and compare freight cost savings in advance of booking, according to MercuryGate.
“As part of this collaboration, shippers can depend on load coverage any hour of the day, seven days a week,” said Bill Driegert, director of Uber Freight. “Users can price and tender immediately, spending less time looking for prices and capacity and more time and energy delivering value to their customers and improving their bottom line.”
