Features of Movement Technologies
Movement Technologies automatically finds the most cost effective way to move your freight, whether domestically or internationally. In just seconds, thousands of possible combinations are considered before yielding the optimal solution for consolidating shipments and minimizing miles and costs.
Select Carrier and Move Freight
Take the guesswork and countless human hours out of selecting a carrier and tendering freight. Use the freight optimizer to select the optimal carrier based on rate, service, and/or route guide. Then use your company’s private bid board to tender loads to selected carriers one at a time or automatically. Once you are done, Movement Technologies stores all data in one location, which is easily accessible to all authorized company personnel.
Your shipments can be tracked by any known reference value down to the item level. Movement Technologies then uses this status information to build reports on in-process shipments and carrier performance. Any exceptions will automatically be sent to you to minimize delays.
Settle loads and allocate costs
When you receive an invoice from a carrier, Movement Technologies compares it against the rated shipment definition and notifies you of any inconsistencies. Once those are resolved, the invoice can automatically be sent to accounts payable. Costs can be allocated to cost centers at the individual line item level, and shared costs can be allocated based on a method of your choosing (number of items, mileage, weight, etc.).
Inbound shipments/Reverse Logistics
Movement Technologies provides forward visibility on inbound shipments, allowing for cross-docking and scalability. Your customers will appreciate the ease with which our transportation management system handles product returns and refurbishings.
