ShipSelect automates the carrier selection process for shipments of all modes including LTL, Truckload and Rail. ShipSelect is designed to automatically analyze criteria such as transit time, carrier preference, cost, mode, performance, and carrier service types to present the optimal carrier based on the user’s particular criteria. This guarantees the optimal carrier is chosen for every shipment, while conforming to routing guide requirements. By performing the carrier selection process upstream, ShipSelect ensures that the customer’s shipping requirements are exactly met at order placement time.
Key Features of ShipSelect:
Intelligent Carrier Selection for All Shipping Modes
ShipSelect intelligently chooses carriers based on weighted selection criteria that go beyond least cost, including mode, transit time, lane, customer location, etc. Carrier consideration can be limited by lane, shipment size, customer, and other factors and then ranked according to mode, transit time, carrier performance, cost or other criteria. Selections can be made automatically, or after an on-line review of alternatives. ShipSelect will also ensure that appropriate weight-breaks are applied, and can automatically determine whether a shipment should go parcel or LTL.
Routing Guide and Compliance Management
Many shippers must comply with complex routing guides published by their customers. ShipSelect is a comprehensive compliance management system for easy access, setup, maintenance, and alterations of carriers for certain lanes, locations, and customers. By ensuring routing guide compliance, shippers reduce their overall shipping expenses, avoid debits and routing guide penalties, and always meet all customer requirements, no matter how complex.
