Building the perfect load is a challenge. There are countless factors to take into consideration such as delivery date, location, class, weight and size. Weighing all of these factors without the help of technology usually results in missed opportunities and wasted resources. Instead of pouring through spreadsheets and manually grouping orders onto a single truck, Kuebix’s Shipment Builder can be leveraged to help logistics teams build and optimize the perfect load every time. With the Shipment Builder, the router or scheduler can view all unscheduled orders in an intuitive portal. By filtering by route, warehouse, order type, commodity group, date for delivery, account or order, they can build a load with the parameters of their choosing. The router or scheduler simply add orders into the Load Builder and builds a route. Users will get alerts if errors such as maximum weight is exceeded.
Trimble Visibility inside of Kuebix TMS is helping shippers gain true visibility to their supply chains. With Visibility, any shipper can track and trace orders in real-time by modularly adding Trimble Visibility as a Premier Application. This means there’s no need for external or disjointed systems, improving usability and accelerating customer service.
This Premier Application offers companies real-time insights and aggregated supply chain data for the answers they need on their FTL, LTL, and parcel loads. With Trimble Visibility, shippers can leverage GPS technology in use by their carriers to track shipments and leverage predictive analytics to proactively manage exceptions. Learn More
This application automates the scheduling of inbound and outbound shipments to and from the right dock location based on SKU to ensure the correct timeframe loading or unloading. It provides predictive learning to adjust scheduling estimates based on actual results and behaviors. Appointment Scheduler maintains the history of carrier performance to provide the analytics needed to make better decisions (carrier rates vs carrier performance). Virtual warehouse docks are created within Kuebix to allow the client to schedule shipments in real-time based on their inbound flow. Customers can schedule deliveries coming into their facility, view deliveries for the day, and establish standing reservations to block outdoors. As a result, customers can fully utilize their docks and increase delivery volume. Learn More
Kuebix can dynamically calculate carrier allowances based on a shipper’s carrier agreements and generate real-time savings opportunities. This unique technology allows companies to receive the best shipping option available to both them and their vendors, based on varying rates and capacity. Allowance Manager helps shippers lock in cost-of-goods performance and generates real-time vendor allowances linked to carrier rates. This results in customers spending far less time negotiating allowances, so they can focus on selecting the best rate possible to ensure savings on LTL and TL shipments. Shippers can use Allowance Manager to create a profit center and – since both parties win – build long-lasting and positive relationships with vendors.
