C.H. Robinson launches TMS platform 20 July 2015

Automated communication between a shipper and their service provider

C.H. Robinson has introduced Freightview, a neutral, cloud-based transportation management system (TMS) software platform which cuts the time and money small and midsized businesses (SMBs) spend on freight shipping by streamlining quoting, booking, tracking, and reporting.

Freightview was created to provide an innovative and valuable communication tool to SMBs who remain underserved by the TMS software market and use multiple less than truckload (LTL) transportation service providers.

These businesses, despite producing almost half of the US private nonfarm GDP, typically ship freight using a manual, inefficient, labour-intensive process that ties up internal resources for hours each day.

When a shipper adopts Freightview as their TMS platform, they maintain direct relationships with their LTL providers while being able to compare shipment cost, transit time, and service level; eliminating the need to repeatedly log into multiple LTL carrier websites. Early adopters of the online freight management software system have said Freightview increases employee productivity by reducing time spent on shipping activities, and arms them with the data needed to negotiate better rates, ensure accountability, and uncover additional savings.

Through an intuitive three-step start-up process, Freightview allows a shipper to be completely setup with the system in 24-48 hours. Freightview facilitates automated communication between a shipper and their service provider utilising a patent pending Application Program Interface (API) workflow process. API eliminates the need to connect electronically with carriers through the intensive and drawn out Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) process.

To aid in the sales process, Freightview can easily integrate into a shipper’s website and sales applications to provide shipping rates on internet purchases or incorporate freight quotes into sales bids. New Freightview users are afforded a free 30-day trial period, followed by a standard US$99 per location monthly fee.
