Share it:

All of us here at Trucker Tools believe that any technology-based tool worth its salt has to be intuitive, easy to use and able to deliver on its promise of greater efficiency. We choose to partner with companies and vendors who hold these same values and strive to help logistics companies like yours achieve greater success. That is certainly true of our integration partner, Port TMS. Port TMS was founded and designed by veterans of the transportation industry, just like Trucker Tools. And just like Trucker Tools, Port TMS can help you run your logistics business as efficiently as possible, while strengthening your long-last relationships with shippers and carriers.

About Port TMS

Port TMS provides logistics companies like yours with an inclusive, affordable transportation management system that is easy to use. The company prides itself on its leadership team’s 50 years of experience in the logistics industry and real-world experience. Drawing on that background, Port TMS offers a transportation management system that allows you to efficiently manage documents, QuickBooks accounting, a web-based LTL TMS portal, custom reporting, carrier onboarding and other brokerage operations in a single interface. You also may integrate Port TMS with your ERP system to achieve even greater efficiency.

Integration with Trucker Tools’ Digital Freight Matching Platform

The integration between Port TMS and Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity digital freight matching platform optimizes your truck procurement process for greater efficiency. With Port TMS and Trucker Tools’ digital freight matching platform integrated together, you can view available truck capacity directly in the TMS interface in a matter of seconds. Trucker Tools’ digital freight matching matches your brokerage’s open loads with available capacity within your network of preferred carriers, with the best matches shown at the top of your match list. Trucker Tools’ digital freight matching greatly reduces the amount of time your staff members need to cover load, which in turn lowers your cost to cover a load.

The integration provides significant benefits to your carriers, as well. Port TMS’ integration with Trucker Tools’ digital freight  matching allows your chosen carriers to view your open loads in Trucker Tools’ free driver app. Your preferred carriers don’t need to call or email your office or respond to a load board post to find out what you have for available loads. Your carriers can simply open the Trucker Tools free driver app, tap on loads and see what you have available for them any time of day or night. This helps your owner operator and carrier partners minimize downtime and maximize their drive time.

Integration with Trucker Tools’ Real-Time Visibility Solution

The integration between Port TMS and Trucker Tools’ real-time visibility platform transforms your load tracking process by making it more efficient, while helping you meet your shippers’ stringent visibility requirements. With the integration, you can view the real-time location of trucks and their freight directly in the Port TMS interface. Instead of making seven or eight check-calls per load to a carrier dispatcher or driver, view the real-time location of trucks in Port TMS in seconds. Locations are automatically updated every five minutes to ensure that you always can provide an accurate ETA to your shippers.

At the center of Trucker Tools’ real-time visibility solution is Trucker Tools’ free driver app. Our free driver app uses the GPS technology native to the trucker’s cell phone to provide you with highly accurate location updates in real-time. What differentiates Trucker Tools’ free driver app and load tracking feature from other load tracking technologies is that load tracking is just one of 17+ tools and features included in our free app. Unlike single function load tracking apps, Trucker Tools’ free driver app provides real value to truckers and carriers that goes beyond providing you and other brokers with load tracking data. Trucker Tools’ free driver app also provides carriers with real-time information on parking, truck stops, rest areas, weigh scales, fuel prices, optimal routes, Wal-Mart stores, loads, DOT locations, hospitals, repair shops and more.
