Shipping Intelligence and Logistics Reporting

Intelligent reporting interprets data critical for managing logistics and running a business. Full shipping records are posted to a secure reporting website where the customer maintains as much history as they choose. Online access affords instant summary and detail reporting with over 400 reports, each fully configurable. If that's not enough, there's an ad hoc report generator for the perpetually inquisitive.

Some users will dig through all detail to find new transportation cost savings. Others stay at a high level reviewing only the summary dashboard. All have access to our analysts who provide initial training and ongoing consultation to flag soft cost savings in transportation spend.  Data-mining services are continuously improved by our analysts, and by customers who create and post new report queries. Their efforts contribute to a growing resource of business intelligence tools that all customers access to manage transport spend.
