If you are a truckload shipper you can also use the CalcRoute Optimizer to save significantly by maximizing load capacity and minimizing the distance traveled.

Features include:

  • integrates with CalcRate/ERP/WMS
  • schedules release time to accomodate due-date
  • based on release-time, will advise arrival date and time
  • integrates with most major mileage databases
  • accomodates unlimited stops per truck (average 3-10)

Pool Software

This software module analyzes historical shipping data to help you determine where to locate pool distribution, saving you up to 8% of your freight costs.

You can analyze your pool locations to determine whether you can save by relocating them to accomodate changing shipping patterns.

UPS Zone Skipping

Turn your long-distance parcel shipments into local shipments by cosnolidating multiple parcels. Ship them alone or in conjunction with larger LTL or truckload shipments to a UPS pool point.

The Optimizer, Pool and UPS Zone-skipping modules are fully integrated logistics tools which can be used in conjunction with each other. Shipments to a pool location can even be part of a multistop truckload.
