Internet Truckstop service will
integrate with MercuryGate TMS
Sep 27, 2012 7:00 AM
Internet Truckstop, a web-based freight matching service for the transportation industry, will be fully integrated with MercuryGate’s Transportation Management System effective October 5, 2012.
The two companies have worked together for years, integrating with Internet Truckstop flagship products such as searching and posting loads. Soon MercuryGate users will have the ability to use Internet Truckstop’s latest decision support tools, including CACCI, a product that includes: Carrier Performance Reporting (CPR), Authority History, CSA/Score Analysis, Carrier Directory, and Cargo/Liability Insurance Monitoring. Another tool that will be part of the October 2012 integration will be RateMate. These Internet Truckstop tools can be accessed through MercuryGate’s own carrier management system, Carma.
CACCI offers a five in one service. The CPR portion includes an A-F carrier rating scale and monitors changes to a carrier’s CPR rating. It allows access to and reporting of carrier complaints, compliments, and rebuttals. The carrier Authority portion is current status and history reports up to five years. The CSA rating is included in this tool along with Internet Truckstop rankings, carrier status, and history with cargo and crash indicators. Carrier Directory provides a complete carrier profile. Ability to monitor cargo and liability insurance coverage and view certificates rounds out this product.
RateMate, which provides a daily accumulation of US and Canadian lane-rate information and paid freight rate information submitted by Internet Truckstop refrigerated, dry van, and flatbed customers, will be available within MercuryGate’s TMS. MercuryGate users will have easy access from within the TMS to view Internet Truckstop’s historical rate information by lane and equipment type to get a better understanding of spot market rates for a particular load.
The service within MercuryGate will allow the user to select a menu option from an individual load and enable quick decisionmaking with information provided by Internet Truckstop. Contact Gary Martinez with any questions regarding integration with Internet Truckstop at 800-203-2540 ext 6300.
