A TMS that works the way you do
As the complexities of transportation increase, you're not only being challenged to keep costs low but to increase the velocity and reliability of your supply chain. MercuryGate's Transportation Management System (TMS) will work with you to optimize your transportation dollars and give you and your stakeholders the information you need to respond to daily challenges and opportunities.
Why MercuryGate is the TMS choice for shippers
The MercuryGate TMS supports every mode of transportation
Whether you need LTL, truckload, parcel, air, ocean, rail or intermodal carriers to move your freight, the MercuryGate TMS will help you plan and execute it. So, while you're selecting the best carrier to move a shipment, you can select the best mode too.
The MercuryGate TMS supports complex end-to-end international multi-leg shipments
A shipment originating in inland China with a destination in rural Kansas isn't a problem for the MercuryGate TMS. With it, you can plan every leg and electronically submit customs documentation too. In the end, you'll have a complete accounting of the landed cost for every shipment.
The MercuryGate TMS is a multi-enterprise application
If your company has multiple business units that ships freight, you can consolidate shipments and allocate transportation costs to each division or subsidiary according to their exact usage. You could even leverage your transportation infrastructure to manage freight for other companies.
The MercuryGate TMS integrates with other company resources, such as ERPs, OMS, WMS, etc.
Your process of planning, executing and settling transportation transactions can be seamlessly linked to your company's order handling, inventory and accounting systems. Regardless of the systems you've chosen for your business, MercuryGate will connect them to your transportation process.
The MercuryGate TMS makes it easy to stay connected with carriers, vendors and customers
You can use EDI messages, web portals or even emails 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 without charges, so now you can involve all your partners without additional costs - for you or them.
The MercuryGate route optimizer, Mojo, consolidates shipments to reduce transportation costs
You can quickly plan hundreds, or even thousands of shipments into the optimal combination of consolidated loads, continuous moves, pooled shipments, and backhauls - even involving multiple modes. When you're confident you've minimized your transportation costs and carbon footprint one mouse click sends the plan to the TMS for execution.
Reports, analytics and alerts keep you in touch with every aspect of your transportation process
Information about your shipments is available as management reports used for planning and analysis, reports that list every detail, and alerts to specific issues needing your attention. In every case, you can see the information in a way that's most meaningful to you. It's easy to create and schedule reports to fit your unique demands.
The MercuryGate TMS is available as a SaaS offering or fully deployed 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 installed in your own data center. You can elect a subscription agreement or a traditional perpetual license and annual maintenance fee structure. Whichever arrangement you select, you'll benefit from the same first-class support that all of our customers receive.
Rapid implementation means rapid time to value
Most new implementations of the MercuryGate TMS are operational in four to six weeks. The application uses templates so carriers, contracts, locations, vendors, and customers can be easily loaded and configured quickly. This means you'll start seeing a return on your investment quickly.
