  • Carrier selection and mode of transport assignment
  • Rate schedules
  • Distance-based freight rating 
  • Adding accessorial charges
  • Printing of shipping documents
  • And more…


This flexible functionality can be implemented based on individual item numbers and customers, or groups of them, to let the system handle some of the complex decision-making according to sets of predefined rules.  This can help reduce the number of mistakes and oversights commonly seen during shipment planning and activity.
