project44 & 3PL Systems

We are pleased to announce our integration with project44 to bring 3PL Systems customers real-time visibility data for the supply chain.

The Most Agile Transportation Management Software

Transportation Management Software (TMS) is at the core of most freight brokerage operations. TMS can rate shipments, dispatch loads, and use electronic tracking to give an Amazon experience to delight customers.

At 3PL Systems we like to build our TMS to innovate based on trends we are seeing in the market. Our software development team is agile delivering new software enhancements to solve real-world problems.  

The Premier LTL Rating Engine for Freight Brokers

Plug and play with up to 60 different carriers using 3PL Systems proprietary API for 60 different carriers for Less Than Truckload (LTL) rating, e-dispatching, tracking, and document retrieval.

No need to contact a support rep to set up these services simply plug in your credentials. We are constantly adding to this list as carriers develop this technology. We make freight brokerage easy.

New Feature Electronic Signatures

Running an efficient freight brokerage is key to being profitable. Give your shippers the convenience of electronically accepting your rate quote native in BrokerWare TMS. Say goodbye to printing, signing, scanning, uploading, and emailing back. Convenience is a competitive advantage.

We have the same ability for your carriers to accept your freight shipment via electronic signature. If you’re interested in learning more of the innovative features our engineers are working on contact us for a demo.

Inside the World of FreightWaves with Craig Fuller

If you enjoy our content please consider sharing it!

It’s not every day we get to speak with a founder that’s innovating an entire industry. We were lucky enough to pick Craig Fuller’s brain learning all about the FreightWaves founding story.

We found out that Craig’s dad started U.S. Express, which Craig’s brother runs as the CEO with 10,000 + employees. Craig ended up working with his dad at one point on a payments venture which caused tensions within the Fuller family.

Craig got interested in markets day trading and came up with an idea to start FreightWaves by creating a data product and then covering topics in the freight market to give context to their data.

Craig’s dad initially didn’t invest in FreightWaves, but it came full circle when Craig got to interview his father Max on Fuller Speed Ahead. There’s a ton of learnings in this episode as Craig is a true pioneer in the logistics industry.

Solving a Driver Shortage with Tristan Bordallo

If you enjoy 3PL Live please share!

3PL Systems is excited to share a founding story in the transportation community.

In this 3PL Live episode, we speak with Tristan Bordallo of Iamfr8 INC about leaving a comfortable role at Covenant Transportation to starting an asset-based trucking company with no financing, trucks, or drivers.

Tristan realized that one way to fix the driver shortage in the industry is to pay the drivers fair wages; his drivers make 75k a year. Iiamfr8 treats drivers so well. Tristan has more drivers than trucks, with 4 more drivers wanting to come on board.

If you like entrepreneurship and salesmanship, this is a great story worth checking out.
