They can put an unlimited amount of market sources. They’ve got a Rate Chart, Live-Rates, Load History, and Send Quote features.

With Send Quote you can take that base rate and put a set margin and put a cost-plus feature to a customer. But with live rate, you can do even more than cost-plus. You don’t want to leave money on the table. With the LOADDEX feature you can create a Truckload Rating Ruleset.

Logistics Exchange brings financial market efficiency to the transportation marketplace. Helping carriers with better RFP requests. The fundamental problem with non-binding “contractual” agreements. Helping carriers improve upon contracts through flexibility and liquidity. Identification of a contract order through a matching capacity entering both parties into a binding agreement. Of course plans change—you can trade out of a contract through the same platform. You just put the contract back on the market exposing the matching engine back to work. It helps establish a forward price commitment. This can also helps shippers get more predictability.

BOXLOCK IoT security is for last mile delivery. Unique bar code scan and actual box lock to work at a variety of places. It works with UPS, USPS, FedEx, and Amazon. The lock automatically scans from the bar code from the package. If it’s the right package, the lock pops open and the package can be delivered. The service is also an app, which verifies the package and unlocks when you press the button.

Sagewise is all about dispute resolution systems to focus more on smart contracts. What you need to resolve a dispute, you need a lot of information. The more data you have the better. You can set up a contract and submit it to your partner. You can make revisions of it and set up payment in an escrow until the due date.
