Freight-pricing software firm SMC3 Inc. has added less-than-truckload (LTL) transit times to its high-speed rating tool, saying the change will give customers the ability to find low-cost rate data and delivery information within the same product.
The rating tool, BatchMark XL, released version 2.4 on Thursday. The new version is integrated with SMC3's CarrierConnect XL transit-time product. The combination will let customers compare up to 20 services per shipment and give them access to more than 300 national, super-regional, and regional LTL carriers, the Atlanta-based LTL data and pricing specialist firm said.
The new functionality makes it easier for customers to find the true financial impact of each shipment, Kevin Springer, SMC³'s vice president of sales, said in a release.
