  • EDI increases the overall cost of trucking operations – you are spending more time on administrative tasks and less time on revenue generating activities.
  • Limited EDI connectivity causes large gaps in information transfer, which constrains visibility.
  • You need to generate rates that take into account market conditions, and then quickly get those rates in front of shippers and 3PLs. That’s real-time, online pricing powered by API web-services and it will never be available to carriers who use EDI.

The Challenging Status Quo

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb” title=”Static Pricing Tables” url_new_window=”off” use_icon=”on” font_icon=”Q” icon_color=”#326699″ use_circle=”off” circle_color=”#2caaca” use_circle_border=”off” circle_border_color=”#2caaca” icon_placement=”left” animation=”right” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left”]

Static rates are unable to respond to market conditions, resulting in lost revenue when demand exceeds capacity or from idle capacity.

Your customers have to spend their time calling or emailing to find out the rates to move a shipment. The lack of online visibility limits new business growth.

Latency of EDI often leads to shipments taking between 15 and 120 minutes to be received by a carrier. That means information is not being transmitted in real-time, increasing the likelihood of missed pickups and triggering more phone calls and emails to manage processes that should be automated.

[/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb” title=”Linehaul with EDI” url_new_window=”off” use_icon=”on” font_icon=”Q” icon_color=”#326699″ use_circle=”off” circle_color=”#2caaca” use_circle_border=”off” circle_border_color=”#2caaca” icon_placement=”left” animation=”right” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left”]

Limited connections require manual processes to retrieve pro numbers and tracking details. Large gaps in information resulting from EDI lead to tracking updates that are not reliable and often delayed.

Shippers, 3PLs and brokers must track down Proof of Delivery images manually via your website, or by placing phone calls or writing emails which will need to be fielded by your team.
