There are dozens of Transportation Management Software (TMS) packages and your company may use one of them to operate.
However, most TMS systems don’t include one key thing that is crucial to your business — a way to manage all your drayage vendor tariffs including terminal and equipment charges and deliver precise cost information quickly, accurately and efficiently.
For that you need a Rate Management System (RMS).
In the intermodal first and last mile world, there is only one RMS designed to develop, store and deliver rate information. That system is DrayMaster.
DrayMaster’s users reported a 4% decrease in drayage costs.
Here’s what DrayMaster does that no TMS can do by itself:
- Transparent, apples-to-apples quotes with all equipment and port fees included means you see the whole picture and can choose smarter and faster. (see article: “Achieve the Impossible: Apples-to-Apples Freight Quotes“)
- Short-deadlines are no problem since DrayMaster displays all your available rates in seconds.
- Staff can easily insert dray cost in your quotes, eliminating staff costs and stress.
- Invoice disputes decrease since DrayMaster quotes are so accurate to begin with. That saves weeks of haggling over invoice charges.
DrayMaster was created by dray industry veterans and delivers the complete rate including all specific port, terminal and equipment fees. They work to keep the rates updated constantly.
To stay competitive, your company needs both TMS and DrayMaster tools in your toolbox.
