3PL Finds a Single Platform to Launch Their Business

Challenge: A genesis of many different companies in the transportation industry, this 3PL did not have a cohesive freight management platform for their customers. The company needed a single platform that could offer robust functionality and meet customers' demands.

Solution: In 2008, the company launched their new business on the MercuryGate platform. The TMS offered them a broad range of capabilities and configurability that improved the efficiency of their clients' supply chains and uncovered significant cost savings.

Results: Since deploying the MercuryGate TMS, the 3PL has grown their business significantly from 13 employees to over 130. The power of the TMS allowed the 3PL to go after different segments of the market (including a $20 million truckload brokerage segment) and keep pace with their biggest competition. Now, several thousand customers ship directly on the MercuryGate platform, anywhere from one load a week to 150 loads a day.

About the Solution Provider: MercuryGate delivers an international TMS enabling shippers and service providers to optimize and execute global shipments, settle invoices, allocate costs, and analyze transportation data. Supports multi-leg loads using TL, LTL, air, ocean, rail, intermodal, and high volume multi-carrier parcel. Use SaaS or self-hosted application to optimize transportation and reduce costs.
