Los Angeles, Boston, May 12th,2021: Freight technology providers SimpliShip and XenonFS announce the launch of an integration partnership aimed at providing customers enhanced drayage management solutions.
The integration allows forwarders on SimpliShip to automate their FCL drayage quoting. SimpliShip’s rate management software (RMS) also enables forwarders to manage their multimodal rates inside of the platform. Now, forwarders can tap into Xenon’s drayage rates in real time as opposed to managing their own trucking rates.
“Now more than ever, time is of the essence when it comes to trucking in the US. With a click of a button, SimpliShip customers will now have access to Xenon’s full container load drayage rates - enabling them to see their costs end-to-end to make smarter, faster decisions” said Stacy Lange, CEO of XenonFS.
In addition to the time savings, the integrated solution offers an attractive rate management solution for Xenon’s customers as well with an out of the box integration with their drayage provider.
“We are constantly trying to make quoting easier for forwarders. Part of the challenge of instant quoting is the trucking piece which regardless of where you are geographically is a huge headache. So, we are trying to build an API suite of trucking providers where possible so that we can make this process much easier, faster, and affordable. It also provides our marketplace with significant increases in coverage for our shippers” said Cory Margand, Co-Founder and CEO of SimpliShip.
In 2015, supply chain veteran Cory Margand set out to create connectivity in a fragmented freight industry by launching SimpliShip. Concentrating on API connectivity and freight procurement innovation, SimpliShip creates solutions that enable Freight Forwarders, BCO's and B2B Marketplaces of all sizes to procure or provide the best instant international air and ocean rates and services with an easy-to-use freight quoting tool.
