Freightgate Unveils New Capabilities to Optimize Shipment Routing, Reduce Transportation Costs

Freightgate, a global provider of Logistics Cloud Solutions, announces new enhanced capabilities in its Logistics Cloud platform for optimal international shipment routing and transportation cost analysis. Global shippers gain a clear and precise end-to-end visibility for planning their shipment movements.

These new enhancements enable optimal decision-making in shipment scheduling, routing selection, carrier choices, delivery times, and analyzing container pickup and drop-off options. Shippers are empowered with predictive analytics to make smart business decisions in their international shipment routings and determination of total transportation cost.

Freightgate offers the industry’s first nine leg routing technology in its innovative Logistics Cloud platform. This enables shippers to quickly calculate shipping costs for each leg of the shipment movement and to analyze the entire movement in terms of cost versus transit time from local pickup to delivery at destination, incurring surcharges, demurrage and accessorial fees.

“Freightgate has pioneered and perfected dynamic routing technology taking our dynamic routing technology to the next level to accommodate the increasing complexity of international logistics and providing valuable insights to our users,” said Martin Hubert, President Freightgate.

Global shippers invest significant time and resources to manage their international shipping activity, logistics procurement and negotiation of shipping contracts. Many shippers lack an integrated tool for International Shipment Routing and Cost Analysis. Controlling international shipping costs through optimal dynamic routing can make the difference between bottom-line profit or loss. Having global logistics analytics can unlock opportunities for shipping cost reduction, optimized cycletime, better shipment routing control and improved transportation planning.
