Kuebix, creator of a transportation management system that delivers true shipping intelligence, and international freight marketplace SimpliShip have partnered to integrate the SimpliShip International Freight Rate API with Kuebix TMS.
In an interview with Logistics Management, Kuebix President Dan Clark says the relationship will help U.S. shippers penetrate the international marketplace with more ease.
“There’s been some anxiety about the risk involved in going global,” he says.
“But the cloud-based platform we provide should address those concerns.”
“Our partnership with SimpliShip is a great addition to the Kuebix ecosystem as we continue to expand our global network of providers to maximize visibility and efficiency for domestic and international shippers”
With Kuebix TMS, logistics managers may be enabled to enhance rating, booking, and managing of their LTL, TL, parcel, rail, ocean and air freight.
For more complex supply chains, Kuebix can be configured with Premier Applications and Integrations designed to meet the needs of a larger enterprise.
According to analysts at Gartner, Kuebix is among the industry’s fastest growing TMS players in today’s marketplace.
Bart De Muynck - a prominent analyst with the consultancy - recently wrote about the company in a TMS market study last spring.
Kuebix is the industry’s fastest growing transportation management system that saves businesses of every size time and money by providing shipping intelligence across the supply chain.
Clark told Logistics Management that the new partnership will help Kuebix in its “consultative” role in the future…especially with perishable commodities.
“High-value goods are growing in demand,” he says.
“And shippers need much more guidance and advice when ramping up their services.”
This partnership with SimpliShip will connect Kuebix users to a large network of freight forwarders and NVOCCs for instant and spot market air and ocean freight pricing.
SimpliShip Chief Executive Officer Cory Margand called the integration the “first step in unlocking the true potential for APIs in international logistics.”
“The days of having to access multiple platforms to manage domestic and international shipments are over.”
