  1. Good article. This is the future. AscendTMS is the TMS software we use and it offers live loads from CH Robinson, DAT, Truckstop, Trucker Tools, Cargo Chief, and about 10 other load sources and load boards on one single screen in our Ascend system. It saves a LOT of time as there is no more hopping from load board to load board searching for loads anymore. Ascend TMS just matches our drivers with their next load while they are on their CURRENT load. This gets our drivers the best paying loads with the least deadhead miles days ahead of time before they’re all gone.

    The TMS doing the load searching and load matching in real time is definitely the future.

    It’s good to see that more TMS vendors are realizing that we want ALL of our 3rd party services properly integrated into our daily TMS software.
