As the complexities of transportation increase, keeping costs in check while increasing supply chain velocity and reliability becomes more and more challenging. MercuryGate Transportation Management System (TMS) optimizes your transportation dollars and supplies you and your stakeholders with the information you need to respond to daily challenges and opportunities.
Confidently Select the Best Mode, Carrier and Rate for Every Shipment
While you’re selecting the best carrier and rate to move a shipment, you can also select the best mode. Select from LTL, truckload, parcel, air, ocean, rail or intermodal carriers to move your freight.
We’re already in the seven figures as far as savings goes…and from a reporting standpoint, we now really understand what our freight spend is, and we can share that reporting with our executive team.

Plan and Execute Complex Door-to-Door Multi-Leg International Shipments
A shipment originating in inland China with a destination in rural Kansas isn’t a problem for MercuryGate TMS. Plan every leg, electronically submit customs documentation, and create complete accounting of every shipment’s landed cost.
Optimize Transportation Plans Across Your Enterprise
Do you have multiple business units shipping freight? Consolidate shipments and allocate transportation costs to each division or subsidiary according to their exact usage, and leverage your transportation infrastructure to manage freight for other companies.
Connect and Collaborate
The planning, execution and settlement of transportation transactions can be seamlessly linked to your company’s order handling, inventory and accounting systems. Regardless of your current business systems, MercuryGate will connect them to your transportation process.
Use EDI messages, web portals or email to share information and collect valuable input for your transportation process. And, there are no hidden fees for messages. Even EDI transactions come directly to the TMS at no charge, which means you can involve all partners without additional fees – for you or them.
Control Costs with Mojo, MercuryGate’s Transportation Optimizer
Quickly and efficiently plan hundreds – or even thousands – of shipments into the optimal combination of consolidated loads, continuous moves, pooled shipments, and backhauls – even for multiple modes. Once you’ve minimized your transportation costs and carbon footprint, one mouse click sends the plan to the TMS for execution.
Stay In Touch with Every Aspect of Your Transportation Process
Available as management reports used for planning and analysis, information about your shipments is presented in reports that list every detail and all alerts that need your attention. View the information in a way that’s most meaningful to you by creating and scheduling reports that fit your enterprise’s unique requirements.
Deploy the TMS in the Cloud or at Your Site
The choice is yours. You can elect to have MercuryGate host the application in its SSAE-16 Type II certified facility or install it in your own data center. You can elect a subscription agreement or a traditional perpetual license and annual maintenance fee structure. Whichever arrangement you choose, you’ll benefit from the same first-class support provided to all of our customers.
Rapid Implementation Means Rapid Time to Value
Most new MercuryGate TMS implementations are operational within four to six weeks. The application uses templates, so carriers, contracts, locations, vendors, and customers can be easily and quickly loaded and configured. This translates into faster ROI and better satisfaction, knowing that you made the right TMS choice.
