“Literally could not do my job without MyCarrierTMS. MyCarrier is the heart of our operation at our business. It lets us easily compare quotes between carriers and see what new markets we can break into with affordable freight rates. Before MyCarrier, I had to log into multiple (8+) carrier websites for every shipment to get direct quotes which ate up a ton of time. The Calendar view is a fantastic tool to get an overview of all your moving product, and to identify problems before the customer does.”
- Austin J., Director of Operations
“We get the centralized data of a 3PL with all the direct carrier advantages.”
- Eric J., owner
“MyCarrierTMS is a logistics manager’s dream come true.”
- Heather B., Supply Chain Account Specialist
“MyCarrier transformed shipping operations for IPC Global Solutions. IPC benefits from not dealing with clunky routing guides that lead to higher-cost LTL shipments. Having real-time quoting makes choosing the best carrier fast and easy!”
- Byron H., VP of Operations
