SCS adopts CargoSphere Rate technology platform
APR 1, 2015: Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) has adopted the CargoSphere rate technology platform to systematize rate and contract management and Rate Mesh networking. SCS’s primary objective is to transform time-consuming, inefficient manual rate processing practices into one comprehensive, efficient rate system including connecting in real-time with global branch offices and agent partners. The next phase of SCS’s CargoSphere implementation will include: Tariff management - self-filing of FMC tariffs all in one system for greater cost savings and processing ease; EDI-integration with SCS’s ERP software system and adoption of the CargoSphere Air and Land Modules. Prior to CargoSphere, it could take 2-3 days before SCS received rate information via email from agent partners. Customer quotations were sent out after several days vs. within minutes as they are now using CargoSphere. “We are now sending customer quotes faster and more effectively using timely, accurate freight rate data housed in one, easy-to-use, all-inclusive system. From a customer service point of view, CargoSphere has been a pleasure. They are responsive, professional and ready to assist where needed. That especially includes implementation and training which was fast and extremely useful,” said Melissa Hermenitt, international pricing and carrier development manager, Supply Chain Solutions. “We are invested in developing long-term customer relationships and rate solutions. Supply Chain Solutions is a world-class company that will enhance our connected global user community. They clearly understand the acute need for a real-time, connected rate technology platform that extends reach, access to data and provides immediate visibility to that data for more effective and timely logistics management,” said Neil Barni, president of CargoSphere.
