TFConnect For Shippers

TFConnect is our cloud-based, Transportation Management System (TMS). It is flexible and easy to use, with dynamic capabilities that are built to help shippers manage and control the shipping process. In today’s environment guessing on costs, using outdated routing guides, and spending excess time shopping rates is negatively affecting the profits of many companies. If your business is manufacturing, retail, or product distribution, shipping expenses can be a major concern, but they do not have to be. Create a cost-saving freight program and make it easy for your sales and shipping personnel to route orders in the most efficient and optimal way meeting all requirements. TFConnect stores all your carrier pricing, lets you shop rates, and helps you enforce compliance with your company’s shipping policies. You also have the option to create specific freight based pricing models for each customer or account. This allows you to pass on larger discounts to your best customers and use freight as an incentive in the sales process.

Shipper Workflow
Enter All Shipment Information on one Convenient Screen
Shipment entry is fast and easy with all shipment information consolidated on one screen. Our 'My Addresses' feature allows you to store your commonly used pickup and delivery locations, saving data entry time and reducing errors. We can pre-load your products to reduce the risk of classification errors or integrate with your order system to load shipment information. Calculate mileage with ProMiles integration, and specify all requirements, such as accessorials, equipment, length and preferred mode. Multiple bill-to accounts can be linked to a single login, allowing you to create different billing and pricing scenarios.
Optimize Your Shipments - Choose The Right Carrier
TFConnect's powerful and flexible rating engine allows you to shop carrier rates and transit times so that you can make better routing decisions and avoid costly mistakes. TFConnect provides custom routing, carrier selection, and rating rules that allow you to define, control, and optimize your shipping program. In addition to supporting SMC3 RateWare and other common rate bases, TFConnect can integrate directly with the carriers to bring back precise rates with minimal setup.
Create Bills of Lading
Create bills of lading easily, and send them out directly from TFConnect. Utilize our standard bill of lading, accepted by all carriers, or we can customize the format to fit your needs. TFConnect keeps a copy of each BOL created, so you have a convenient history if your shipment changes.
Schedule Pickups
Our daily pickup list allows you to view your pickups for the day, broken down by carrier. Monitor carrier totals to make sure your freight does not exceed avaiable equipment capacity. From this view you can quickly update PRO numbers and pickup dates when the truck arrives. TFConnect allows you to schedule pickup electronically with many major carriers, or you can e-mail the bill of lading to carrier dispatch.
Track Your Shipments With TFTrack
Tracking your customers' shipments is a key element of good customer service. Using TFTrack, direct integration with the carriers allows you to track all of your shipments from one place and send out tracking updates and delivery notifications. TFConnect can also monitor all of your shipments in-transit and automatically email you status and delivery reports.
