FREMONT, CA: The spark of digitalization has failed to impact the transport and logistics sector significantly. The two industries lag behind most other sectors when it comes to the efficiency of time, energy, labor, and capital. Integration of technology will take the sectors a long way in addressing these problems, and who better to facilitate the solutions than MercuryGate, the largest independent transportation management system (TMS) provider.

MercuryGate recently announced a partnership with Uber Freight, the on-demand logistics branch of Uber. The collaboration will make the extensive carrier network of Uber Freight available on the MercuryGate platform, enabling instant access to the real-time pricing and guaranteed freight lane capacity. It will empower users to streamline the price and tender process, helping them focus on delivering value to the customers and improving their bottom line.

Joe Juliano, President & CEO of MercuryGate, said, "Shippers need reliable information to drive speed and efficiency in their 24/7 operations. By tapping into Uber Freight's trusted carrier network, customers of all sizes can realize the benefits of a digital freight marketplace with access to real-time pricing and a vast network of available carriers and guaranteed capacity."

The robust transport management solutions delivered by MercuryGate offer a competitive advantage to shippers, 3PLs, freight forwarders, brokers, and carriers. The solutions provide native support for all modes of transportation on a single platform, including parcel, LTL, truckload, air, ocean, rail, and intermodal.

The company is committed to delivering success and productivity to its customers by equipping them with innovative, result-driven technology. Its solutions are designed to improve productivity and operation efficiency for TMS users. MercuryGate also provides business intelligence to enhance transportation processes, customer satisfaction, and cost-effectiveness.

"Through this partnership, MercuryGate will provide contracted Uber Freight customers visibility into a trusted carrier network of more than 400,000 drivers with real-time pricing and guaranteed freight lane capacity, right in their existing routing guides," Juliano said. "In addition to Uber Freight, MercuryGate continues to partner with many leading carrier network providers."

MercuryGate has established its presence in the logistics and transportation landscapes by helping businesses modernize their operations with its innovative, cloud-based TMS solutions. The collaboration will enable shippers to depend on load coverage throughout the day. The rates are based on the data from Uber Freight's extensive carrier network and proprietary pricing algorithms and evolve according to market dynamics. The data on transparent market conditions not only allow logistics executives to estimate, but also to compare freight cost savings before booking. The offerings and contributions of MercuryGate to the logistics and transportation sector garnered it a position in the "Top 10 Transport Management Solutions Provider-2016," a list of elite solution providers recognized by the Logistics Tech Outlook Magazine.
