Transfix launches new management system for small, mid-sized shippers

Jan. 26, 2021
According to the company, TrueView TMS aims to offer shippers with flexible, consistent capacity and reducing time to tender by up to 92%.

Transfix has launched TrueView TMS, a modern and flexible transportation management system for small and mid-sized shippers who are tasked with having to do increasingly more with fewer resources, static tools, and little data.

According to the company, TrueView TMS offers an easy-to-use tool for securing reliable coverage at scale, streamlining tender management, and automating carrier communications – all while surfacing powerful insights on carrier performance to enable continuous freight optimization. Early users of TrueView TMS, including Plastic Ingenuity, have experienced up to 92% reductions in time to tender. 

“What Transfix does better than anyone else is bring ease-of-use and analytics to the freight management process; reducing friction caused by legacy systems, and empowering decision-makers to make more strategic decisions,” said Lily Shen, CEO of Transfix. “TrueView TMS brings transportation management into the 21st century, giving shippers the ability to manage their freight with a few clicks and tap into the most powerful capabilities Transfix offers instant capacity, real-time visibility, and actionable insights across their entire operations.” 

As capacity continues to tighten, the ability to secure reliable coverage is increasingly important, yet increasingly challenging. With TrueView TMS, shippers can flexibly secure coverage in four ways: 

  • Flexible routing guide: Automatically tender to primary carriers and easily source backup carriers to ensure fully reliable coverage 
  • Enhanced spot auction experience: Launch auctions, collect bids automatically within the TMS and accept bids -- all within minutes, not hours
  • Direct tender capabilities: Quickly and easily pick a carrier of choice and hand the confirmation process to Transfix
  • Instant booking: Access Transfix’s best-in-class carrier network, with instant rates and one-click booking

Beyond booking capabilities, Transfix suggests TrueView TMS offers automated carrier communications and unparalleled insights into performance, enabling shippers to make the data-driven decisions they've been seeking to make more easily. With load status updates and ETAs, as well as advanced analytics on Transfix loads including carrier performance metrics like on-time pickup and delivery, shippers can keep a critical pulse on and optimize their freight operations. 

“Since we’ve started using TrueView TMS, my team can now focus on bigger strategic opportunities and spend less time bogged down with tedious work,” said Cody Schmidt, corporate purchasing manager at Plastic Ingenuity, who leveraged TrueView TMS to drive internal efficiencies including slashing time to tender from three hours to under 15 minutes. “I’ve seen my team save hours of time, enhance our coverage, realize cost savings through the spot auction feature, and remove many of the manual tasks involved with tendering freight. I’m impressed with how quickly we were able to get set-up within days and start managing all of our freight operations in one place.”
