All existing functionality for logistics companies has been transferred to the new platform and is available on the Freightgate Portal 2.0. The new website encompasses a comprehensive search capability and an entire suite of collaborative features, such as message boards and Wikis. Freightgate's other internet-based products include I-Trek! for internet supply-chain collaboration and visibility, GTM-Trek! for requests for quotation and tender management, Tariff-Trek! for service contract and quote management, FMC-Trek! for fulfilling publishing requirements of the Federal Maritime Commission, Pay-Trek! for automated freight-bill audit and payment, a WISA (What-If Scenario Analysis) tool, and I-Sail!, an interactive online sailing schedule.
