Service provider and transport carrier check

For individual offers, CargoSoft RMS gives you the security of creating them consistently on the correct calculation basis and adapting your sales rates to market conditions. You can compare and combine different modes of transport and service providers for your transport planning. The costs, cost developments and calculation bases in the individual corridors are compared transparently. This means you can provide your customers with optimal advice, including with regard to sustainable and cost-optimized options.

All shipping-relevant conditions can be displayed

The RMS is ideally tailored to the needs of shipping companies. The software can display both the long-term contract rates and the short-term spot rates. Empty container depots are also taken into account in the calculation. Other conditions that form the basis for pricing can be individually adjusted, for example dangerous goods classes or refrigerated transport. A standard upload form for MS Excel makes uploading the conditions easier. We also support our customers in depositing the rates by connecting to spot quotes from Freightify and the Service Contract Reader.

Share offer knowledge in a targeted manner

Once the offer has been created, everyone authorized in the company can find the offer. This simplifies the administration and evaluation of accepted/rejected offers. By assigning individual user rights, you control that only those involved in the process chain have global access to data relevant to them. You can be sure that the conditions stored are always up to date. The system automatically informs you about expiring contracts or installment components via warning messages (alerts, emails).

Automated right up to the invoice

If the offer becomes an order, our CargoSoft TMS takes over. Because the RMS can be integrated into our transport management system. For you this means that the purchase and sales prices from the offer are automatically transferred to the shipping order. This means that billing and provision creation can also be done digitally. The time savings are noticeable and error rates drop noticeably.
