Trucker Tools announced Aug. 26 a platform integration with transportation management software provider Port TMS.
Port TMS provides a cloud-based platform for brokers and 3PLs to improve workflow, reduce labor costs and enable fast and effective partner integrations, it said. The Trucker Tools partnership is intended to help the company enhance in-transit truckload shipment visibility for its customers.
“There are many brokers, particularly small to midsized brokers, in the market today that are trying to figure out the digitization journey and how to move forward,” Trucker Tools CEO Prasad Gollapalli said in a statement. “The combination of Port TMS and Trucker Tools provides a competitive solution for brokers looking for better technology and better customer service through affordable tools that can help grow the business and give them digital freight management capabilities the same as the big players.”

Port TMS will incorporate a suite of driver and broker digital freight management tools as part of the partnership. The integration is also intended to provide customers with real-time predictive digital freight-matching tools to streamline access and management of truckload capacity.
“The real separator for Port TMS was digital freight matching, its ease of use and ongoing support,” Mark Groves, vice president of sales for Port TMS, said in a statement. “For a relatively reasonable investment, you can not only track your loads, get status updates inside the software and inform your customer, but you can participate in a digital freight management platform that is reasonably priced with good carriers already on board and good functionality. And it’s exceptionally reliable.” — Transport Topics
