C.H. Robinson has introduced Freightview, a neutral, cloud-based transportation management system (TMS) software platform designed to reduce 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 a communication tool to SMBs who use multiple less than truckload (LTL) transportation service providers. 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.
Freightview facilitates automated communication between a shipper and their service provider utilizing a patent pending Application Program Interface (API) workflow process.
To aid in the sales process, Freightview can be integrated into a shipper’s website and sales applications to provide shipping rates on Internet purchases or incorporate freight quotes into sales bids.
