Convoy, a digital freight network, today launched a new online platform designed to bring together the company’s on-demand truckload capacity offering, Shipper Platform, with its modern transportation management system (TMS), Convoy Connect.

While online capacity and TMS tools have traditionally been offered as separate solutions, Convoy says it’s combined approach provides shippers with comprehensive freight management capabilities while ensuring the privacy of sensitive data with a sandboxed routing guide. Shippers using the new platform have been able to cut their tendering time in half and reduce freight spend by automating and standardizing their bid processes.

New features launching today within the integrated platform include:

A spot auction manager that automates quote requests and helps shippers quickly select winning bids from any carrier or broker in their network.
Automated facility notifications that share real-time shipment status milestones with key facility contacts.
Automated BOLs that save shippers time and reduce communication errors.
The ability to view and get real-time tracking on all Convoy freight, including loads tendered via EDI, email, or other methods in a central dashboard.
