project44 has introduced volume LTL rating APIs to facilitate instant, real-time volume rate exchange between carriers and their shipper, broker and 3PL customers. This volume rating technology has been integrated by the largest LTL consolidator in Southern California, Sunset Pacific Transportation, to increase profitability and visibility, while reducing administrative costs.
"Unlike traditional rate bureaus, fulfilling volume rate requests via our Freight API eliminates the need for a carrier to manually respond to quote requests," said project44 CTO, Wally Ibrahim. "Rolling out a volume rating API via project44's network increases Sunset Pacific's ability to communicate more effectively with an even larger audience of customers."
With Sunset Pacific's new volume rating API, the carrier is able to respond to specifically to volume rate requests in a more automated way and at a lower cost.
"Integrating volume rating via API is a great example of how our ongoing relationship with project44 has helped us to adopt emerging technological advancements with limited IT investment," said Josh Craig, President and COO of Sunset Pacific Transportation. "project44 allows us to focus on what matters most - providing best-in-class technology and service to our customers. We're able to respond to a higher number of volume and LTL rate requests in milliseconds through our online quoting engine, while also delivering increased data transparency and real-time insights to our customers."
