GT Nexus Adds Truck TMS Capabilities to Platform

GT Nexus has deployed new capabilities designed to support road transportation. Delivered as a cloud-based service over the web, the capabilities link and extend GT Nexus’ ocean and air spend management services.

“We have used GT Nexus to support our international transportation for some years,” said Dennis Melgert, strategic sourcing manager, logistics at Celanese Corporation. “With the truck capabilities, we can now procure and manage truck services on the same core platform we use for international transportation. The process efficiencies and savings we have seen are significant.”

Managing truck rates and enforcing service compliance is a notoriously complex problem. When shippers cannot get clear and immediate access to truck rates, they are unable to efficiently manage their trucking operations. That’s because, when rate information falls out of date and becomes hard to find, the risk of tendering the shipment with the wrong carrier rises significantly. This drives up costs, impacts services and disrupts plans.

GT Nexus addresses the spend management challenge by providing a central, secure, cloud-based repository for contract and rate information, which supports ocean, air and truck transportation. Users access the platform through a standard web browser, to retrieve and compare routes, rates and service metrics across carriers.

The truck capabilities are merged with the ocean and air data management functions to deliver an end-to-end freight spend control platform that spans those transport modes. With centralisation of this crucial information, shippers can automate procurement, optimisation, contract management, visibility, execution and audit operations.
