3Gtms, Inc., a global provider of Tier 1 transportation management software, announced today the release of its 3G-TM transportation management system version 17.2 and its exclusive offering of continuous pool optimization. Known as a trusted partner among 3PLs, shippers and brokers, 3Gtms' latest tools underscore that commitment by enabling users to plan and execute shipments with more choices and flexibility for greater cost savings, more efficient deliveries and superior service.
With continuous pool optimization, users can plan shipments to a consolidation point by pre-determining a specific location or by allowing the algorithm to dynamically determine the optimal consolidation facility. These routes can then be "split", allowing the execution of multiple movements into consolidation while delaying the determination of the outbound routing until more freight accumulates at the pool location or time limits require the freight to be released from the pool. Outbound routing from the consolidation facility can be executed independent from (but with consideration of) the inbound movement while still maintaining a single order for each leg of the journey.
3G-TM v17.2 also introduces the latest phase of enhancements for brokerage and transactional load management that improve user productivity. Specifically, users now have access to more detailed information via additional search, filtering and context menus within the order and load management areas. Carrier assignment and spot quote entry are also more accessible. These features allow users to get data more quickly for better load management and optimization in a high-volume environment.
Other key highlights of 3G-TM v17.2 include:
The inaugural certified integration with DAT RateView™ providing users with real-time access to current DAT Truckload rate index data, along with historical lane-cost history analysis
Automated and manual carrier assignment now considers carrier performance rankings
Enhanced round-trip rating and routing
