Cargo Chief will join top industry trailblazers such as Truckstop.com and DAT to offer carriers a "one stop matching platform" to get available loads rather than hopping in and out of multiple load boards to find the best loads for their "to be empty" trucks in AscendTMS.
Tim Higham, president and CEO of InMotion Global, Inc. said, "The days are long-gone for carriers needing to go to dozens of load board websites looking for available loads for their 'to be empty' trucks. With AscendTMS, we search all the major industry load sources like Truckstop.com, DAT, and Cargo Chief's C4 Platform, in one single place. With Cargo Chief joining the AscendTMS network, carriers now get pre-vetted loads from pre-vetted shippers, brokers, and other 3PL's. Moreover, the carriers load tender and load payment processes can be fully automated if they use AscendTMS to manage their trucking operations which saves a great deal of time and money for the carrier."
Russell Jones, Cargo Chief's CEO, stated, "As AscendTMS is the most widely used carrier TMS on the market today they have an immense reach into available truck capacity several days before a truck is empty. It made perfect sense for us to integrate our C4 Matching Platform with AscendTMS so our 3PL clients can post a load to C4, and know that AscendTMS will automatically find them 'to be empty' trucks days in advance. That's good for volume freight buyers and for the carrier. It reduces freight costs and adds certainty for Cargo Chief clients because they are automatically booking vetted live capacity while greatly enhancing their team's productivity, and the carrier loves the fact that their next bona-fide load is the absolute best match from a pre-vetted shipper or broker."
Higham continued, "AscendTMS is driving logistics TMS technology that works in both today's messy world of trucking and logistics, as well as in tomorrow's more digitally oriented paperless world. Proven solutions like AscendTMS and Cargo Chief's C4 are testament that the savvy industry participants are getting smart, and more profitable, by moving with the digital tide of change in logistics. In fact, that's why AscendTMS has been so successful – we deliver results - or our customers never pay a single penny."
