Estes Forwarding Worldwide (EFW), a leading United States domestic and international freight forwarder specializing in custom logistics and warehousing solutions, announced a collaboration with project44, a leading supply chain visibility platform, that will bring to market an enhanced version of “Get It There Faster,” EFW’s LTL Rating API that delivers real-time, expedited solutions for LTL shippers. Many 3PLs and transportation management platforms that provide LTL rates do not currently offer instant rating options for significantly expedited shipments, like air freight or ground hotshot. When connected to EFW’s “Get It There Faster” technology, shippers can instantly see rates for faster options, even if they aren’t shopping for them.

“The feedback from our initial rollout with TMS partners has been overwhelmingly positive. ‘Get It There Faster’ exceeded our expectations and theirs,” stated Scott Fisher, CEO of Estes Forwarding Worldwide. “With these new enhancements, we can deliver even more value, convenience, and upgrade potential.”

“Get It There Faster 2.0” key benefits will include the following:

1. Expedited LTL Options: Your basic LTL rate request will return expedited options that shave days off standard LTL transit times, even offering air freight or ground hotshot services.

2. An Elevated User Experience: “Get It There Faster” presents expedited options that a shipper may not have known were possible - at the point of sale. For example, shippers will be offered a next-day air option on 4-day LTL lanes. This may lead to a reduction in the total cost of the project. It will also improve the service outcome for the customer.

3. Instant Rates: “Get It There Faster” rates are instant - even for air freight.

4. Directly Available Through project44 – EFW’s collaboration with project44 will make it even easier for project44 customers to connect to the “Get It There Faster” API.

“Since the inception of project44, we have been focused on digitizing and automating the LTL lifecycle,” stated Jason Duboe, project44’s Chief Growth Officer. “Achieving this can only be done through co-innovation between carriers, technology providers, and shippers — everyone plays a part in driving change. Collaborating with EFW to deliver the new ‘Get It There Faster’ API helps shippers meet rising customer demand with instant rates and expedited options.”

“Get It There Faster 2.0” is expected to launch right after the 2023 New Year.
