Freightview Software


 

Freightview is a standalone transportation management system designed for small to midsize businesses that ship less-than-truckload (LTL) freight and work with multiple carriers or brokers. Its customers include manufacturers and distributors who ship or receive as few as three to more than 100 shipments a week.

Freightview gathers all of its users’ negotiated LTL rates into one place, allowing them to compare options. Users can also schedule pickups, prepare bills of lading, print shipping labels and track shipments. Freightview’s visualization capabilities allow users to convert their shipping data into charts, graphs, reports and spreadsheet downloads. It also features a unified address book, which prevents users from ever having to enter addresses twice.

Freightview's consolidated interface saves users time and resources, so they don't have to create and remember login credentials for several different websites. In addition, it boasts an fast setup time.

A Web-based system used by thousands of shipping specialists, Freightview is compatible with Windows, Mac and mobile devices. It is priced as a monthly subscription, and is available for an unlimited number of users. For businesses who want more visibility and accessibility into their carrier and broker rates, Freightview is a useful option to evaluate. A 30-day trial is also offered to experience its functionality before you purchase.

Customer Service- ease of use- We have our own Tariff and we audit our own Invoices, this was a key factor for us as we want to see if the carriers are charging for added services etc. The invoices still come from the carriers so if their is an issue we deal directly with our Sales Rep from the Carriers

Likes Least

A nice feature would be when you hit the button to schedule the freight that it would print the BOL and print the 4 x 6 Zebra label, that is the only thing our previous TMS did that this one doesn't. Other than that there are no negatives

Recommendations

There are a lot of Companies out there selling TMS Software- the 1st thing to look at is how easy is it to get help after you sign on with a Company, for example: we are using Freightview for 6+ months I e-mailed Tom today and within minutes I had a response( this is not your average response time with other companies) this is our 3rd TMS we had in 4 years, and we really like what we see, they listen to you, and are always improving with more & more features- Obviously price is another important one to evaluate, look no further this is simply the best for the buck.

It's not 100% complete just yet. I really have no complaints though even about that. I look forward to being able to track all shipments and to the other improvements and additions coming.

I'm able to view all my contracted rates in one place, and not have to go to multiple carrier websites when getting quotes. It has really helped increase my productivity by cutting down on the time I spend getting rates from multiple carriers, and has also helped lower my freight cost.

Likes Least

There are still some things they are working on, or they are in Beta mode, so once those are fully functioning it will be even better. For example; cancelling shipments, updating shipment BOL's, and tracking the shipments. Another minor detail is the platform requires a packaging group to be entered when shipping hazardous materials, but the commodity that I ship, while considered hazardous, does not require a packing group. To get around this, I have to schedule the shipment with a packing group, print the BOL, white out the packing group then scan the BOL and email to my customers. It would be nice to have a BLANK option for the PG moving forward.

Recommendations

I would try it out and see if it fits your shipping needs. It works well for my company, and what we ship. The platform is easy to use, and has helped lower our freight costs tremendously. I would suggest using it on a trail basis to see how you like it. The monthly cost is less than my savings on one shipment, so for us, it's a no brainer.

You literally type in a username and password and you are then able to rate and book a shipment through FreightView. Before we used all the carriers websites directly and we now have streamlined that through FreightView. We save an enormous amount of time and energy. It generates PRO's right on the BOL's. It has barcodes. It does shipping labels. You can report on whether or not you are routing with the lowest cost carrier. It schedules pickups.

They actually listen and implement the features I want.

It's amazing.

The software allows us to gather freight quotes from multiple freight lines very quickly and all in one place. That has definitely sped up our order entry process and getting orders released to our shipping department. Freightview also has been very responsive to our requests for additional functionality.

Likes Least

There's really nothing we don't like except for functionality we would like to see added and tweaks to streamline the results for quoting freight.

Recommendations

Take some time to work with the product to see if it fits your needs. And always be willing to work with the vendor on upgrades or functionality additions. Just because it's not there doesn't mean it can't be added.

Speed, efficiency and accuracy. What's "funny", is I had this EXACT idea over a year before I was contacted by Freightview. I wished finding LTL carrier prices could be this quick and simple. When they called me and told me how affordable the service was, I JUMPED on the offer. I was sold before they even tried to sell me. LOVE IT!

Likes Least

Honestly, no complaints. This service has performed excellently time and time again. If I ever have any issues, it's with my freight forwarders, not with Freightview. Keep up the good work!

Recommendations

Use as MANY 3PL and freight forwarders you have so they can fight for your business.

We are a direct to consumer manufacturer and ship a ton of LTL daily. Cross-quoting our major carriers used to consume a huge amount of time, but it's now near instant with Freightview. This is a huge time savings.

That they weren't around for the past 12 years as my company wasted time on our shipments.

Obviously all software has to meet a need. You have to define what you're trying to accomplish clearly and how much its worth to you. This meets our needs and is low cost enough to use.

There are 7,000+ TMS systems in the world that have the "best reporting" and "best functionality." For me, it all comes down to service. FreightView is a super solid application that probably looks like other platforms, but their customer service is #1 in my book!

Before FreightView, we would have to log-in to 5-6 different carrier websites, enter the same information 5-6 different times, choose the rate, and then book the shipment through the carrier's website. This process would take several minutes at minimum multiplied over the number of shipments we'd book on any given day. Now, the entire process - from getting quotes from the same 5-6 carriers all the way to booking and printing a Bill of Lading - takes under a minute! As we continue to grow and ship more LTL each day, this platform gets more and more valuable.

Likes Least

The only issue I have is that this platform is not completely built out yet, but I know they are working on some finishes touches. The meat and potatoes of the system are in place, and I'm kind of splitting hairs to try and find something wrong.

Recommendations

Make sure to give FreightView feedback, because they do listen to what you have to say, and they have ben more than willing to make some minor tweaks to better fit my needs.
