In the dynamic world of logistics and transport management, Cargoson's innovative approach towards supplier-driven transport orders is revolutionizing the way businesses handle their shipping needs. By integrating third-party ordering capabilities with automated carrier booking, Cargoson TMS enables control, and optimisation and simplifies logistics operations.

Third-Party Ordering: Simplifying Supplier-Driven Bookings

The recent introduction of a Third-Party role in Cargoson TMS marks a significant leap in empowering suppliers. This role enables suppliers to make bookings directly from a company's Cargoson account, fostering a seamless, efficient, and transparent process. Here's how it works:

  • Role Assignment: Once you assign the Third Party role to your supplier, they receive an account activation email, gaining access to a tailored Cargoson view.
  • Focused Access: Suppliers can see and manage only their shipments, ensuring data privacy and focus.
  • Shipment Management: Suppliers can input shipment data and order transport from a pre-selected list of carriers, but they won't have access to sensitive information like other shipments, prices, or transit times.
  • Operational Flexibility: Depending on your preference, suppliers can either just add new shipment information for you to decide on transport, or they can complete the booking process themselves.

Automated Carrier Booking: Enhancing Efficiency through Technology

Automated Carrier Booking, a pivotal feature of Cargoson TMS, complements the third-party ordering system by bringing in an element of intelligent automation:

  • Intelligent Selection: The system helps in choosing the most suitable carriers for shipments based on various criteria, including cost, transit time, and environmental impact.
  • Integration and Automation: By setting criteria in the Automated Carrier Booking module, the system automatically books carriers when the "Auto-Select Carrier" button is hit.
  • Seamless Process: This feature not only automates the booking process but also ensures that shipping labels and tracking links are generated in Cargoson, enhancing operational efficiency.

Benefits of Integrating Third-Party Ordering with Automated Carrier Booking

By combining these two features, Cargoson TMS offers a robust solution for businesses:

  • Centralized Information: All freight information, whether outbound, inbound, or domestic, is available in one place.
  • Operational Efficiency: Automation and delegated booking processes streamline logistics, saving time and reducing the potential for errors.
  • Cost Optimization: Intelligent carrier selection can lead to significant cost savings by choosing the most economical options.
  • Environmental Responsibility: By considering freight CO2 emissions in carrier selection, businesses can make more environmentally conscious decisions.
