(PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Freightgate, a global provider of Cloud Logistics Solutions, announced a new self-quoting extension to their successful Freight SpotQuote Solution. The new self-quoting extension significantly enhances SpotQuote by allowing customers of logistics providers the self-service capacity to have direct online access to quickly price and route their shipments seamlessly with a simple login. Customers can view, print and/or email rate quotes with the functionality of sharing transportation quotations between departments and with their business partners. Upon selection of the best shipping option, the customer can book freight with carrier and secure shipment details.
Logistics providers and transport carriers, such as NVOCC consolidators, trucking companies, and airfreight forwarders using the SpotQuote Solution will improve their spot quoting capabilities and more efficiently respond to customer shipping requirements. The new self-service quoting extension reduces the freight quotation response time, provides customer with instant accessibility to an array of routing options, and helps logistics providers to better manage their customer service units.
SpotQuote is part of Freightgate’s Logistics Cloud Platform, known as the Freightgate Universe. The intelligent, interactive, online system allows customers of logistics providers to efficiently compile a professional looking quote accounting for all modes of transportation with a historical repository and retains it for their record. The SpotQuote engine supports even the most complex surcharge and fee logic imaginable.
