The 3PL Challenge

Finding, rating, planning, and dispatching shipments is too complicated today for manual and pen and paper methods.

Too Many Manual Processes

The reliance of many 3PL providers today on manual processes and methods like pen and paper note taking, a paper trail for each shipment, and recording delivery statuses on excel spreadsheets creates hundreds of wasted hours every week for everyone on the floor. This adds up to millions of dollars of lost time every year.

Unscalable Employee Processes

Turnover is the silent killer - the costs to rehire and retrain new employees in an unscalable process get out of hand fast.Without a scalable process, turnover risk is increased, and the ability to adapt and change course is lost. This reduced flexibility increases costs and puts the business at risk of falling into obsolescence.

Lack Of Client Visibility

The costs of traditional client support and customer experience are incredibly expensive - requiring vast teams in callcenters placing check calls on carriers and relaying information back to clients. This increases the risk of data entry errors and keeps customers in the dark about the status of their freight.

Miscommunication Errors

The reliance on phone calls, email threads, and a physical paper trail leads more often than not towards miscommunication errors between dispatch, planning, accounting, and management. This is before the shipment is communicated with shippers, receivers, and carriers - all of which create points of failure in the chain of communication.

The FreightPath Solution

At FreightPath we use technology to provide a flexible adaptive solution for the problems 3PLs face.

Exception Based Automation

Instead of updating every customer about their shipments manually through check calls and emails, FreightPath automatically shares shipment status updates, important changes, and delay alerts via email and through the FreightPath customer portal to keep your team and your clients on top of every order and shipment.

Purpose-Built Intuitive Software

FreightPath is designed with an easy-to-use and easy-to-learn workflow that is proven to reduce onboarding and training time. It’s available on any device with just an internet connection, and is even mobile friendly so your team can send quotes, post to load boards, update shipments, collect invoices, and communicate with clients on the go.

Real-Time Shipment Status Reporting

FreightPath cuts your operations team’s daily workload on status reports by over 70% on average. Instead of manually updating status, FreightPath collects and aggregates information from carriers and drivers and automatically flags shipments with delays and mistakes to keep your team and clients up to date in real time.

Invite Clients and Carriers

Cut out the miscommunication with clients and carriers by inviting them into your TMS through client and customer portals. There’s no easier way to keep everyone on the same page with shipment updates, updated insurance packages, safety requirements, and exception notifications. Clients can even book their own orders directly in your TMS.

How Tretan Inc Reduced Time Spent OnShipment Updates By 75% With FreightPath

In the mining industry, real-time visibility is the name of the game and every minute can cost millions. Harry Driedger and his team at TretanI nc were able to deliver on this promise thanks to their new FreightPath TMS.

“We are in the service business and we want to provide our customers with as much value as possible.FreightPath has helped us in increasing our service level as well as helped us get organized in the back office”
Harry Driedger CEO of Tretan Inc

The central pillar of any 3PL is exceptional customer service. It’s the key differentiator that grows your brand, retains existing clients, and builds long term partnerships for maximum success.

In the mining and energy sector where Tretan Inc specializes, it’s crucial that every stakeholder involved knows when and where materials and equipment are. With the scale of these operations, each hour of time lost due to delivery uncertainty is immense. To mitigate these risks, the Tretan team turned to FreightPath TMS to provide:

Real Time Status Updates: Receive instant shipment status changes from carriers and drivers and relay the information to clients.

Exception-Based Automation: Intelligent notifications and status updates to help operations keep track of urgent requests.

Customer Portal: Allow clients to book shipments directly in TMS and view status updates without phone calls or emails.

De-Risk Projects with Advanced Visibility

The first thing that FreightPath was able to do for Tretan was to provide advanced track and trace for all of its shipments through an easy to use and simple system. The Tretan team didn’t have the time to implement a complex tracking solution, and Tretan’s drivers wanted to control when their trucks were being tracked. The existing solutions available on the market - like integrated GPS tags - were either too complex, too expensive, or both.

FreightPath changed this by providing a simple and easy-to-use app that allowed Tretan to dispatch shipments to drivers, and gave drivers the ability to send status updates, proofs of delivery, and eSignatures. With real-time information on shipments, project stakeholders were able to lower both short and long term risk by predicting and planning for delays, thus lowering costs.

Automation and Workflow Enhancements

The second piece of the puzzle was streamlining the workflow of receiving and fulfilling booking requests from project managers. Before implementing FreightPath, booking requests had to be made over the phone or email through a chain of command becoming a literal game of broken telephone.Not only did this increase the chance of costly errors in the shipping process, it was a tedious process that drained shipdesk and dispatch employees alike. Nobody wants to be stuck to hours processing paperwork and filling out forms for bureaucracy’s sake.

FreightPath was able to completely transform this process by introducing a customer portal for Tretan. Through this online portal, clients could book shipments with Tretan instantly, without any phone tag. This cut time spent on dispatching by over 75% - especially since these documents and details could be shared directly with customers through a portal or web link without emails or calls. This allowedTretan to provide service that was faster, more cost effective, and less error-prone than their competitors.

Onboarding and Implementation

None of these other benefits could be realized if the platform wasn’t implemented on time and on budget. This is where a flexible cloud-based system like FreightPath excels.Without any need for expensive hardware,FreightPath was able to train, implement, and onboard Tretan in under a week’s time. This type of white glove onboarding and ongoing support made sure that every aspect of the customer journey was as frictionless as possible for the stakeholders at Tretan.
