Integration Partner Highlight: Award-Winning, Web-Based TMS Provider Tailwind

Tailwind Transportation Software provides small and mid-sized trucking companies, freight brokerages and third-party logistics providers with an all-in-one cloud-based transportation management system that centralizes data entry and storage. Tailwind’s TMS is built on a monthly-subscription model and includes robust support, including online training, instructional videos and in-app support. Customers can choose from Tailwind’s standard, pro and enterprise TMS versions according to the scale and volume of their businesses.

The ability to search for freight capacity with greater efficiency is just one of the benefits offered by the integration between Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity real-time carrier capacity and relationship management platform and Tailwind Transportation Software. Finding capacity faster can increase a freight brokerage’s operational efficiency, improve shipper customer satisfaction and ultimately increase freight volume and overall revenue.

With the integration with Trucker Tools, Tailwind’s Pro and Enterprise transportation management system subscribers can view Smart Capacity’s real-time freight capacity data directly in the TMS interface. Instead of using manual capacity search methods such as load boards, daily bulk emails and phone calls to carrier dispatchers, brokers can access instantaneous, accurate, real-time information on available trucks in the TMS.

More efficient capacity searches allow brokerage staff to be more proactive in building mutually-beneficial, long-term relationships with preferred carriers with high-quality loads and reloads. Using Smart Capacity’s powerful, predictive freight matching capabilities and workflows, brokers can book multiple loads and reloads with a carrier in a single communication, reducing deadheading and downtime for carriers. 

The Trucker Tools-Tailwind integration allows brokers to provide greater customer satisfaction to shippers because they can scale capacity based on demand. During high-volume seasons, brokerages can draw on Trucker Tools’ network of more than 700,000 driver app users to supplement preferred carrier networks. The integration also gives brokerage staff members access to Smart Capacity’s highly-accurate freight visibility solution, which automates load tracking and delivers precise location data to brokers within the TMS.
