3PL Systems and SMC3 Team Up
3PL Systems understands that time management is vital to freight brokers. To assist freight brokers with this common struggle we have developed tools in our TMS needed to assist in making these responsibilities more manageable. Amongst the various ways many freight brokerages split their time is by spending several minutes researching carrier websites every time a quote is needed. Another obstacle freight brokers are often faced with is the numerous incoming and outgoing calls and emails for quote requests. This is something anyone would find not only time consuming, but frustrating. These problems can be solved with our application and the integration with SMC3.
Solutions to Your Struggles
Searching multiple common carrier websites for LTL rates is an inefficient way of generating cost information for your customer shipments. With BrokerWare’s Least Cost Routing (LCR) and SMC3’s RateWare, you can generate multiple LTL rates in seconds, opposed to minutes when using carrier websites. Also useful for LTL planning is BrokerWare’s SMC3 Carrier Connect integration. This integration will populate transit times and terminal contact information, useful for dispatchers to schedule pickups. By utilizing our integration, dispatchers can spend more time helping your customers with their needs to increase customer satisfaction.
LCR will manage hundreds of different customer specific discounts, giving your customers the convenience of retrieving rates and selecting their most favorable option through their customer portal. With SMC3’s package for BrokerWare, customers are able to get accurate pricing for customer tariffs and compare multiple rates in seconds. This eliminates mistakes and saves time by doing away with the need for several calls and emails exchanged between your customers and dispatchers. Additionally, an advantage of the convenience of a preset margin is, by establishing customer tariffs errors in profit calculations will never be an issue resulting in meeting optimal profit potential.
