Switch to FreightPath for one centralized platform for track and trace, document management, customer portals, carrier onboarding, analytics and more.
Over the past 20 years, the Tailwind TMS team has been a pioneer in the TMS industry. So, if you're evaluating FreightPath vs Tailwind TMS or looking for Tailwind TMS alternatives you're on the right track.
While there are plenty of feature, support and capability differences between FreightPath and Tailwind, the difference between our two companies is in our DNA.
Whereas Tailwind started by building on-premise TMS software, FreightPath was built from the ground up as a modern, fast, secure and reliable cloud-native TMS platform.
So, long story short: if you're a freight broker looking for a cloud platform built to help you accelerate your operations, book more loads and deliver exceptional shipper experiences - all while being easy-to-use and reliable - then you're in the right place.
We totally get it. So the rest of this page is for you. We sat down with a few of our top sales reps and our best customer success managers to help write this page and asked each of them:
“Hey if you had to put a page up on our website breaking down the top reasons why people pick FreightPath vs Tailwind TMS, what would you say?”
They gave us a handful of clear answers that should help you.
We built our platform with the feedback and knowledge of real freight brokers - which means that we understand what it's like booking hundreds of loads every month. We get that freight brokers want to book loads with fewer clicks.
We know from experience that those 5 extra minutes spent booking a load matters to you - it could mean the difference between a shipper being happy or disappointed with your service.
Because we've been through the day-to-day process of closing shippers, vetting carriers, booking loads, filling paperwork and making track & trace check calls, we know that freight brokers need less manual work, not more.
While Tailwind TMS does offer a driver app, it's difficult to use interface create additional barriers to driver adoption, making your life as a freight broker harder. And there's no customer portal to share track and trace with your shippers.
FreightPath is the opposite - with powerful automation through our driver app and customer portal, we make it possible for your brokerage to provide real-time track & trace, digital signatures, instant proof of delivery and more without any manual work.
Every FreightPath account comes with the tools that we've built to provide your freight brokerage a leg up on the competition - from intelligent automation to providing new ways of communicating with shippers and carriers.
FreightPath automates the filling, sending and signing of your quotes, rate confirmations, bills of lading and more to save time everyday.
FreightPath automatically sends the full details of every load straight to your drivers smartphone for confirmation, no texting or calling needed.
With an intuitive user interface that puts all of your information at your fingertips, FreightPath lets you book even complex loads fast.
No TMS platform is perfect, and even the easiest-to-use software can take some legwork to learn. That's why FreightPath is the first TMS provider in the world to offer Hypercare to all of our customers.
Instead of canned replies from foreign call centers or a self serve help center (although we have that too!) you can pick up the phone and call a FreightPath customer success manager whenever you have questions, need help training a new hire or just need a refresher.
