We will customize and host a branded portal for your company to manage daily freight related tasks, including:
We can also customize how the results are shown for different user groups. We can show either the least cost carrier only, or the 3 lowest cost options, depending on how you want to manage the freight.
You can also limit access to certain tools by specific user account within your company.
Your Web Portal is a great way to access all of this information, however, it gets better:
We will identify opportunities for integration of our tools into your business processes across your organization.
For example, if your sales department uses the freight calculator 100 times per day, we’ll directly link the freight calculator to your application through XML. This makes your whole quoting process more efficient by eliminating the manual process associated with checking rates, assigning codes, and entering information into the system.
Our No-cost Freight Savings Analysis will identify this type of potential improvement to your business processes.
We will customize and host a branded Vendor Routing Web Portal for you to provide to your vendors so they can obtain accurate, least-cost routing instructions.
This Vendor Routing Web Portal is linked to your company’s ReTrans Freight Account. As a result, all the vendor has to do is enter the PO, put in the characteristics of the shipment, and the Vendor Portal will be automatically populated with all relevant information for routing.
Your vendors will have immediate access to:
You can even track which person at a vendor company entered the order information, eliminating awkward “he said, she said” scenarios in the event of an error.
You then receive a daily report on the status of each transaction. You can see when your shipment is en-route, who the freight carrier is, the estimated delivery time, and the expected charges.
ReTrans Freight can integrate EDI into your systems. For example, one of the most common integrations is to streamline the payables process: all the carriers bill their freight and send us all of the documents. We’ll then audit the freight bills and push the reports to your system on a weekly basis. This way you get all the payables, freight bills and reports, and only have to issue one check for everything. We take care of the rest.
ReTrans Freight can create customized reports and export your data in popular formats like Microsoft Excel, CSV files, and Word.
We take care of scanning and storing all your documents, freeing your internal resources. You can access all of the document images through your custom Web Portal.
ReTrans Freight can integrate rates with your Bill-of-Lading software and help you eliminate hours and hours of data entry. Most times, to prepare a bill of lading you need to key in the same information you used to get a rate quote from a carrier (Zip codes, weight, class, etc.).
Now we can integrate the rate quoting right into your bill-of-lading application so you can generate your rate quote and carrier options with a single click, without ever leaving your current BOL application.
