Uber Freight, an on-demand freight provider, and AscendTMS, a global TMS provider, have recently announced their integration. Carriers of all sizes can now search and find loads from Uber Freight’s network directly in the AscendTMS software platform.
AscendTMS has access to logistics insight and visibility, with up-to-date load ETAs and destinations. AscendTMS can proactively match trucks in a carrier’s fleet that are soon to be empty with the best Uber Freight load currently available, including those loads with minimal deadhead and minimal wait times for the carrier’s truck drivers.
“With just one single click by the AscendTMS user, we’re able to match a carrier’s ‘soon to be empty’ trucks with the best load matches from Uber Freight’s dense carrier network. In AscendTMS the carrier can then choose any live Uber Freight load at the listed “book now” price, and instantly book in the Uber Freight Web Portal. Zero paperwork needed,” said Tim Higham, CEO of AscendTMS.
The integration between Uber Freight and AscendTMS allows carriers to access Uber Freight loads without changing their current process. AscendTMS transportation management software is free for all carriers.
“Everyone agrees that the future of logistics and trucking is digital. Especially during the past year, we’ve seen unprecedented and enthusiastic demand for digital processes,” said Higham.
