The Power OF 3GTMS

3G-TM is the only TMS powerful enough to handle the most complicated projects, yet intuitive enough to be used by all transportation professionals.

Our transportation management system – 3G-TM – is a broad and deep, intuitive multi-mode TMS for mid to large 3PLs, shippers, brokers, forwarders and other non-asset based transportation companies that manages and optimizes your transportation operation. 3G-TM manages the full order-to-cash process in real time and within a single system.

  • Order management
  • Rate, route and optimize the best ways to move those orders
  • Execution of the order and tendering
  • Track/trace capabilities, continuous visibility into the order, reports, dashboards and PODs
  • Financial settlement and audit 

Plus, we are the first and only TMS to offer Continuous Pool Optimization.

Power Over Complexity.

Rating & Contract Management 

You get fast, intuitive access to multiple rate options and the ability to develop accurate rating results that inform the best scenario planning for shipments.

Why 3Gtms

We rate parcel, LTL, truckload and intermodal accurately and take into account all considerations in real time. We determine the real cost – the actual invoice amount – by factoring contract terms, weekly fuel and accessorial charges upfront; as well as identifying the least cost carrier and managing upcharges.

Plus:

  • Accessorial and fuel surcharge management
  • Flexible negotiation of both buy-side and sell-side rates
  • Advanced capabilities help you manage hundreds of thousands of pricing profiles
  • Extensive qualifiers and constraints for billing contracts, including tiered rates based on any combination of factors
  • Support mark-up pricing that considers multiple factors; exempt specific accessorial charges from mark-up; or apply mark-up by percentage difference than freight charges

Planning & Optimization 

The ability to factor in all real-world constraints from the beginning to the end of an order is a game-changer that saves our customers significant amounts of time and money.

Why 3Gtms

The 3G-TM planning and optimization capabilities are like nothing else on the market: They take into account all real-world constraints to build loads that you can actually execute, giving you the best options for delivering an order and taking into account all requirements. As conditions inevitably change, our embedded optimization engine continuously shows you the effects of those changes on the routes and whether there are new routing options to consider.

The first and only TMS to offer Continuous Pool Optimization: The ability to plan shipments in to a predetermined consolidation point or dynamically determine the optimal consolidation facility

  • Consider all options, including multi-stop, LTL, pool distribution to manage even the most complex routes
  • Dynamic pooling and cross-docking
  • "What if" planning analysis
  • Load map view
