Total Shipment Budgeted Cost Visibility

Get a consolidated cost view of the entire shipment, even when shipments comprise a multitude of moves from different vendors under separate contracts.  So, if you have an overseas drayage move followed by an ocean move and then a domestic drayage move, 3rdwave provides the total cost of transportation for that shipment.  

Negotiate Better Freight Contracts

When negotiating freight contracts, knowledge is power.  While there are substantial savings to be had in better base rates, there is dramatic savings to be had with negotiated free days, administrative costs, and so on.  Capitalizing on the savings requires a different level data and process control and analysis.  That’s what 3rdwave was designed to do.
