Tai TMS (Tai), a fully integrated, broker platform for freight management and transportation, today announced an integration partnership with Newtrul, a dynamic platform unlocking automation and digital booking growth for mid-market brokerages.
With the integration, brokers can now create shipments and send them to Newtrul's private load board by simply updating the shipment status. From there, users can track how many quotes are received within Tai’s company loadboard and access a truckload quoting page to review quotes and accept or reject them. Without having to sift through multiple tabs, brokers can negotiate with carriers from a single page within Tai with quotes from Newtrul’s carrier network.
“Mid-market brokerages that want to grow need to have tools and tech solutions that help them achieve their goals and scale with them,” said Walter Mitchell, CEO, Tai. “Our integration with Newtrul means that brokers don’t have to negotiate with several carriers to find a suitable rate, they can reject quotes and negotiate with the same carrier in real time.”
For Newtrul, partnering with freight broker oriented TMS providers, like Tai, provides an influx of automation to brokers who traditionally operated manually in spreadsheets. Newtrul’s book now automation and carrier negotiation tools make it easier for carriers and brokers to move loads while automation within Tai TMS complements this process by saving booking steps. The single page data view within Tai saves each agent at a brokerage 11 hours a week on average.
Ed Stockman, CEO, Newtrul adds, “Newtrul aligns with the real needs of mid-market freight brokerages. By streamlining the booking process, curating a trusted carrier network, and empowering teams with automation, we’ve afforded brokers a competitive edge that is typically reserved for the top 1%. We're thrilled to welcome Tai customers to the next generation of digital freight matching.”
As automation efforts continue to ramp and scale across the industry, Tai has identified a number of partners across the industry that not only compliment Tai’s automated platform, but bring new capabilities to freight brokers. Tai’s integration with Newtrul is another step in a long-term plan to support human capital with top-level technology.
