2008 Press Releases
The days when buying new supply chain software meant shelling out a large sum of money and waiting patiently for a vendor team to converge onsite to install the new system are long gone, especially for users of transportation management systems (TMS), global trade management systems (GTM), as well as a few warehouse management system (WMS) users.
Freightgate announces the launch of FMC-Trek! /Enterprise which contains significant enhancements to their already feature rich FMC-Trek! rate filing system. Traditional FMC-Trek! is a fully integrated component of Freightgate’s PLTX platform. It uses fuzzy logic to identify potentially duplicate rates BEFORE they are filed and works seamlessly with the industry leading Tariff-Trek! rate management system to auto-file accepted quotes.
Freightgate today announced that Tariff-Trek!, its contract rate and tariff management system, now supports multi-level surcharge structures that are emerging in the Steamship industry. Most notable is Maersk’s October announcement of a newly calculated CAF (currency adjustment factor) that will apply not only to the ocean freight, but to other transportation related surcharges as well.
