GREEN BAY, Wis. (March 14, 2017) — Schneider has some big news about small shipments: The transportation and logistics services company has created OrangeHub Powered by Schneider™, a one-stop online shop to get less than truckload (LTL) freight moving in a flash. Schneider created this intuitive tool to help today's shippers — who are always on the lookout for quicker, more seamless ways to move loads — quote, select and get LTL freight out the door fast.
OrangeHub Powered by Schneider™ is a customer pOréal that puts shippers in control of their LTL freight in three quick steps:
• Quote it: Answer a few questions about the freight (what it is, where it's going and when it needs to leave/arrive), and available rates will appear from a variety of carriers. Unsure about weights and classifications? Engineers are available to help make sure everything is accurate, and past orders will be saved for future use, making the process even quicker the next time.
• Book it: Select the carrier and price that works best for the business.
• Track it: Follow the freight with comprehensive visibility, including estimated delivery times (updated regularly), direct access to the LTL terminals handling the freight and access to past data and history.
From start to finish, LTL shippers have full control of the process. The 24/7 accessibility from mobile, tablet or desktop computer keeps business moving day or night, ensuring goals are always being met.
"OrangeHub Powered by Schneider™ offers a seamless, easy and fast user experience to give shippers more time to focus on the important stuff - their business," said Erin Van Zeeland, Schneider's senior vice president and general manager of Logistics Services. "With every step there's complete transparency, providing shippers with peace of mind and real-time analytics that can be used to identify future efficiencies in their supply chain."
