Oracle recently announced a partnership with Uber Freight, a logistics platform with a large digitally-enabled carrier network, to help shippers increase flexibility and control of operations. By integrating Uber Freight with Oracle Transportation Management Cloud, shippers can take advantage of real-time pricing and tendering capabilities as well as reliable capacity. Real-time pricing enables shippers to plan for and manage their day-to-day operations while navigating fluctuating demands such as seasonal overflow, exception management, new lanes and over-capacity.
“Today’s market is in constant flux and shippers need real-time visibility into the market in order to make critical decisions about their operations,” said Laurent Hautefeuille, head of business development at Uber Freight. “We’re thrilled to have Oracle as an innovation partner. By working closely with Oracle, we will enable our shipper partners to manage changing capacity demands while maximizing efficiency. Together, we’re creating a seamless freight marketplace with end-to-end visibility.”
