AscendTMS Offers the Lowest Cost EDI in Transportation by introducing $1 Flat Logistics EDI
InMotion Global, Inc., the maker of the AscendTMS Transportation Management Software (TMS), today announced $1 EDI transactions, which is approximately 80% less costly than any other EDI service in the transportation and logistics industry today.
Tim Higham, president and CEO of AscendTMS stated, "Large shippers and carriers love EDI because it automates all human data entry and it completely eradicates input errors. But, it's often a nasty process to setup and maintain, and the cost has always been prohibitive. However, AscendTMS has now reduced the average industry EDI transaction cost by over 80% by guaranteeing that the cost never goes over $1 per load, no matter the amount of data being transferred back and forth."
Traditionally, EDI is used to move freight tenders and freight updates back and forth between shippers, freight brokers, 3PL's, and freight carriers like trucking companies. Setup often takes weeks or months, involving each trading partner to format the data mapping process and maintain EDI servers that communicate with each other. Because AscendTMS maintains and controls their own EDI servers and performs all trading partner setup, EDI connectivity with AscendTMS can be completed in as little as 24 hours.
The AscendTMS EDI process is totally controlled by the on-site AscendTMS EDI team in Florida and supports shippers, brokers, 3PL's, and asset-based freight carriers. No third-party vendors are used in the entire process which speeds up connectivity procedures and eradicates issues. The $1 per load is billed monthly.
EDI continues to be the worldwide standard to connect shippers and freight carriers because of established transportation industry standards. Every Fortune 1,000 shipper and freight carrier uses EDI to connect to their trading partners.
AscendTMS offers carriers, fleets, brokers, and shippers a complete business management solution for their entire logistics operation. It provides easy to use features such as full dispatch control, load searching and posting, access to 53 leading load boards, asset management, driver management, driver pay and settlement, a customer CRM with a 26,000 strong shipper directory, shipper and broker credit reports, full accounting, real-time QuickBooks integration, real-time load funding with Triumph Business Capital, a carrier payment portal via TriumphPay, terminal and agent management, commission management, document management, reporting, ELD integrations, driver texting, a free truckload rate index, IFTA tax reporting, Comdata and EFS fuel card imports, cargo claims handling, easy EDI for connection to large shippers and much more.
