Transcount is a best-of-breed freight rating and management system designed especially for the needs of small logistics providers and freight forwarders who don’t need a full-blown transportation management suite.
The system enables businesses to share rate requests with multiple carriers and develop quotations for clients. Rates can be stored in the system for historical analysis. In addition to freight rating and invoicing functionality, Transcount also functions as a document management system. Logistics providers can securely retain documents and send them to contacts. Documents can also be created using prepared forms.
Transcount can also manage contacts—logistics providers can grant carriers and customers access to documents and communicate with them via integrated live chat. Customers can also track shipments in real time via the Web portal.
Transcount is a cloud-based solution that is licensed according to a monthly subscription model, though three-month and six-month subscriptions are also available. The system is licensed on a per-company rather than a per-user basis.
