Amber Road has released Air Rate Manager, an on-demand solution that automates the logistics process for airfreight. The solution is designed to enable shippers and logistics companies to effectively manage their rates to make better routing and carrier selections and expedite the accurate audit of air waybills for improving productivity and containing international transportation spend.
Air Rate Manager, a module of the Amber Road International Transportation Management solution, provides access to accurate, real-time rating, routing and carrier information. It enables shippers to evaluate all possible airfreight routing and service options to optimize carrier selection decisions. Additionally, each rate is linked to all applicable accessorials-including fuel and security surcharges-to accurately calculate a full bottom-line cost.
"Today, transportation budgets are under pressure requiring companies to implement proven international transportation management solutions that provide tools to effectively manage these skyrocketing costs," says John Preuninger, president of Management Dynamics. "Air Rate Manager helps global organizations to centrally manage their air rates and to provide operating groups with an easy-to-use, Web-based application to manage airfreight costs by researching available routes and rates, optimizing carrier selection and auditing bills."
