As a business grows, its supply chain operations can get geometrically more complex. Instead of manually handling logistics operations over the phone and email, why don’t you take advantage of TMS solutions?

A Transportation Management System (TMS) could be a key tool in running your business. It can save you money, reduce processing time, scale operations, improve performance, and more.

How does it work?

The function of the Accur8 TMS varies depending on whether it’s utilized by brokers or carriers. Aside from load management, the differences between it being used by carriers and brokers are as follows:

For brokers, Accur8 TMS primarily involves helping with and streamlining quoting processes and covering loads, validating carriers, updating clients, tracking loads, invoicing clients, and managing payments.

Conversely, carriers that opt to use Accur8 TMS focus on managing trucks, trailers, maintenance expenses, fuel consumption, registration, and insurance. Carriers also use our platform to calculate payments, handle cargo claims, drivers files, and manage processes pertaining to various incidents and accidents.

In both cases, Accur8 TMS serves as a comprehensive tool tailored to the specific needs of brokers and carriers, facilitating efficient operations and enhancing overall effectiveness.

Significance for Carriers and Shippers in Detail:

For carriers, Accur8 TMS offers a centralized platform where they can access available shipments, negotiate rates, and efficiently plan routes. It enables carriers to maximize their capacity utilization, reduce empty miles, and ultimately improve their profitability. Moreover, Accur8 TMS provides carriers with real-time visibility into shipment statuses, allowing for better coordination and communication with shippers.

On the other hand, shippers benefit significantly from utilizing Accur8 TMS by gaining access to a set of tools that can help them grow and expand their network of carriers, thereby enhancing their flexibility and choice. By leveraging Accur8 TMS, shippers can efficiently compare rates and services among different carriers, ensuring they select the most cost-effective and reliable option for their shipments. 

Additionally, our system empowers shippers with greater visibility into their supply chain, enabling proactive decision-making and enhanced customer service. With features such as real-time tracking and performance evaluation of carriers, shippers can optimize their operations and mitigate risks effectively.
