Competition breeds excellence and drives business; it always has. So why, then, do so many traffic managers keep using the same low-quality, high-priced LTL freight carriers when there are hundreds of options available? In most cases, they simply can’t see all the available options . For that, they’d need a product like Amrate. Amrate is a 3PL software platform which pulls rates from multiple carriers on LTL shipments for warehouse and traffic managers.
Why LTL Carriers Should Fight for Your Business
You expect your customers to compare your business to your competition. You work hard to maintain an edge, whether that’s pricing, speed, quality of service, reliability or a combination of all four. But do you expect the same from the businesses you rely on every day?
There are hundreds of LTL carriers in business right now. They are all competing for your business. That competition drives fair prices, high quality services, technology innovation, and attention to market demand. Forcing LTL carriers to fight for your business means you can expect a higher quality service at a competitive rate.
Researching the Competition
Traffic managers continue using the same LTL carriers for one or more of the following reasons:
- Long-standing relationship
- Advantageous Pricing
- Quality Service and Reliability
What if there was a more convenient option, with more competitive pricing and higher quality service, with a new carrier happy to build a relationship with your business?
Enter Amrate, a proprietary software from Amware. The web-based 3PL platform makes it easy for traffic managers to compare dozens of LTL shipping options on one single screen. You’ll not only be able to find the LTL carrier with the lowest cost, but also be able to view the many possible transit routes available for a particular shipment and see expected delivery dates.
When LTL carriers know you’re comparing them, they make an extra effort to put their best foot forward. You do the same with your customers, why shouldn’t you expect it from your business partners?
More Than Just a Shipping Tool
Amrate is a perfect tool for comparing LTL carriers in many facets. It makes it easy to find the right carrier for each of your shipments, which means you could be using several carriers at any given time. Why not take advantage of what each carrier does best? If one LTL carrier has a huge presence on the west coast but charges a premium on the east coast, another carrier might have the opposite situation, giving you the opportunity to take advantages of both.
Beyond choosing the right LTL carrier for your shipment, Amrate offers full-service logistics management. From tracking and tracing your shipments to freight bill auditing and payment and customized reporting, Amrate makes it easy for you to manage your entire shipping operation from one single web-based platform. Get up-to-the-minute carrier management services and even submit and resolve claims, all within the same software.
