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. Their 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.

Freightview is a web-based system that can be used on Windows, Mac and mobile devices. The solution offers a monthly subscription for fixed number of shipments per month. 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 purchase.

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

The last several months we have had a lot of frustrations of not being able to quote supposedly the EDI/API has been causing issues, then the system crashes in the middle of day, also took away auto-fill for the e-mail we are getting punished for the people that don't have accurate info. so they shut it off so I have to type in the e-mails as we send our customers a copy of the bol so they can track it etc. and a lot of other small frustrations, we have been using it close to 2 years and we will be going to another TMS for free

Pros

Ease of use

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.

Wonderful Platform

Ease-of-use

Functionality

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.

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!

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

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.

We decreased our cost/shipment by more than $60 on average, and have cut down processing time from approx. 25 minutes to less than 4 minutes.

Pros

I love the simple integration of carrier websites, it cuts down on processing time exponentially. The user-friendly interface is incredibly easy to learn and train new users on, and it takes out the guesswork of having to know more information about each carrier.

Cons

I wish there were more in-app customization options (views, edits, etc.). I would also like to have some soft of Freight Class calculator integrated that would help users figure out the most accurate freight class possible, we currently have to use our own chart separate from Freightview.
