Indianapolis, In., (Sept. 19, 2017) FreightRover, the streamlined freight exchange and management app, now integrates seamlessly with AscendTMS, the world's #1 rated web-based Transportation Management Software. Users of both platforms can now utilize the power of FreightRover's load posting and load searching/selection, state-of-the-art tracking and analytics, and QuickPay options, directly within the AscendTMS platform.
Furthermore, all of FreightRover's current integrations (MacroPoint, Transflo, TriumphPay, and SaferWatch) are now available to AscendTMS users who utilize FreightRover's services. Moreover, the AscendTMS logistics software, including the FreightRover integration, is being provided to any FreightRover customer at no charge.
AscendTMS is a powerful enterprise level Transportation Management System (TMS) used by freight brokers, shippers and trucking companies to manage their entire business and logistics operations. It is the world's only truly web based TMS software, and requires no downloads, setup, contracts, licensing fees, or support fees.
"Every freight broker, shipper, and carrier customer of AscendTMS have asked us to help automate the repetitive typing in of loads and the updating of them as the parties book loads. This is the first time any TMS has managed to do this. Our open API allows FreightRover to communicate with one or both parties in the transaction so we can update their TMS systems with absolutely no technical work by the AscendTMS customer," says Tim Higham, president and CEO of InMotion Global, Inc.
Two-way communication between FreightRover and AscendTMS allows users to post loads without a hitch. The FreightRover app is now available to every AscendTMS user directly from the FreightRover website.
FreightRover's software and strategic integration allows users to simplify freight management from load tendered to load delivered, right from the AscendTMS platform. There are no fees to post or search loads on FreightRover, so users only pay upon load selection.
"It only makes sense for us to integrate with such an innovative platform as AscendTMS. FreightRover was designed to streamline the business of transportation, and we fully believe users will be very impressed with the synergies created between these two platforms," says Eric Meek, CEO of FreightRover.
Within AscendTMS, all FreightRover users have access to real-time load tracking, full visibility to rates and appointment times, document scanning and retention, and ability to message each party to a specific load. Users also receive intelligent load status updates through geofencing, which restricts results based on the current location reported by GPS, and extensive load analytics.
The freight exchange app provides shippers the ability to build loads and set dynamic rules to automatically adjust the load's price and other details after a specified time. Carriers utilize the rules engine to set email alerts and push notifications for loads that match their preferences, further simplifying the load building and search process.
Within FreightRover, shippers post to a select group of carriers, or the open market, and carriers are then able to select the loads that fit their needs.

FreightRover was born from the simple understanding that the transportation industry needs technology that works for everyone. FreightRover's dynamic freight exchange provides supply chain visibility from load tendered to load delivered, allowing complete control over freight management. And FreightRover's system is highly focused on easy communication between the app and the user's TMS, meaning that data flows smoothly both ways without interruption to the user's current processes.
