New Features and Highlights of the 3Gtms 21.2 Release
Logistics service providers, freight brokers, and shippers can all benefit from 3Gtms 21.2 improvements in carrier assignment, new attributes for locations and loads, and more sophisticated searching. Details on a few of our favorite improvements in this area include:
- New carrier assignment rules that save you time: Use carrier qualification restrictions to prevent the assignment of carriers to a load based on parameters like cargo insurance, hazmat certification, carb compliance, and more. You can now more easily prevent carrier assignments that violate customer-specific settings for FMCSA compliance and DOT Safety Rating Compliance.
- Load enhancements with more attributes for better process control: Track load-based insurance, easy-to-use load follow-up capabilities, load attributes defined for managing cross-border shipments, including bond and customs broker information.
- New location type attributes enable searching by purpose: Search by work group and job function in the Load Status Messages, Stops, and Trading Partners UIs with six new search fields.
In addition to improvements in TMS platform fundamentals, improved integrations round out our existing functionality with more data needed to further streamline carrier onboarding and carrier advances. Details on a few improvements in this area include:
- Updates to RMIS integration with attributes for better load sourcing: Improvements to RMIS (a Truckstop.com company) with more expansive electronic data updates to 3G. Updated carrier information on service areas, equipment, and commodities along with up-to-date carrier safety, insurance, and certification information (e.g.: hazardous, CTPAT, TWIC, etc…).
- More control over load advances in ComChek: The 3Gtms integration with ComChek [an industry leader in providing carrier advances for 40 years] now provides improved controls to view an Express Check balance and cancel all or part of a balance, more easily returning funds to a broker’s ComChek account.
While upgrades to platform fundamentals and integrations are important, the 3Gtms 21.2 release also delivers some top customer-requested enhancements in tendering, assignment, and offers. A few of these improvements:
- More easily send tender notifications to larger groups: Send tender notifications to multiple recipients by adding a subscriber group in tender configuration records. Authorized users can update the tender’s recipient list, change the from email, and choose a notification template. And the list of email recipients is now captured in the load’s tender history.
- More easily send broadcast offers to up 100 carriers: A saved query can now be used to assign a group of carriers to a broadcast offer, supporting transmission for up to 100 carriers.
