C.H. Robinson Unveils Freightview TMS for Small, Mid-sized Businesses

C.H. Robinson has introduced Freightview, cloud-based transportation-management system (TMS) software for small and midsized businesses.

The tool was designed especially for companies that use multiple less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation-service providers. Typically, they ship freight via manual, labor-intensive processes, Robinson said. Freightview allows users to maintain direct relationships with LTL providers while being able to compare shipment cost, transit time and service level. It eliminates the need to repeatedly log into multiple LTL carrier websites. Freightview allows for automated communications between shippers and service providers, through a proprietary application program interface (API) workflow process. API eliminates the need to connect electronically with carriers through electronic data interchange, Robinson said. New Freightview users are being offered a free 30-day trial period, followed by a monthly fee of $99 per location.
