Code Red in the Transportation Market! TranzAct to the Rescue

Sep 9, 2020

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve covered several issues that shippers are dealing with as they manage their transportation areas. If you’ve read our updates on what we’re seeing in the ocean freight industry, tips for working with LTL carriers and managing volatility in the Truckload sector, and advice for finding alternatives in the parcel market, you’ll note that there is one common theme: There are capacity and rate concerns in several different sectors of the transportation marketplace.

We’ve heard from shippers who have confirmed that they are experiencing the conditions we referenced in these Two Minute Warnings. So it is no surprise that we have also received questions asking: How can you help us address these issues? What does TranzAct do for shippers?

Simply put, TranzAct helps companies manage and reduce their freight costs. Companies use our services and technology to optimize their logistics costs and improve their supply chains.

When we started TranzAct in 1984, we were committed to providing shippers with the best freight audit and payment services in North America. As we continued to grow, our menu of offerings and capabilities expanded as we responded to changes in the marketplace and our customers' requests. For example, with our rating expertise, we developed a proprietary LTL sourcing platform under which we have conducted billions of dollars in sourcing events for companies as large as Wal-Mart and much smaller companies who wanted to have Wal-Mart-like capabilities.

Today TranzAct’s core offerings include:

Freight Audit and Payment
Outstanding capabilities with a comprehensive reporting/ analytics suite that gives you the data and insights necessary to run your supply chain strategically.

Constellation TMS
Our robust, cloud-based Transportation Management System enables shippers to manage all their transportation activities in one place, gaining efficiency through automation without being unnecessarily complicated.

LTL and Truckload Sourcing Capabilities
Our innovative approach and carrier relationships provide shippers with best in class carrier rates that are sustained over time and ensure capacity.

Supply Chain Consulting
Our supply chain consulting team has supported companies in building comprehensive transportation spend management plans, developing and executing cost management strategies, and providing extensive support for cost-saving projects. 

Capacity and Service Solutions Brokerage
C&SS helps shippers move shipments on a day-to-day basis, finding trucks when shippers can’t. Our brokerage team honors their commitments and provides support from the beginning through the completion of each and every move.

In this Code Red environment, we’d welcome the opportunity to have a discussion about how TranzAct’s capabilities can provide cost saving solutions that improve your company’s supply chain capabilities and more effectively serve your customers.
