In an expansion of its suite of less-than-truckload freight rating tools, SMC³ has unveiled a direct-to-carrier volume LTL pricing API solution.
    Delivered through the SMC³ platform, the API can be used in conjunction with SMC³’s RateWare XL contract rating tool.
    SMC³ says it is a leader in LTL rating, handling 40 million transactions each day.
    Supply chain stakeholders use volume pricing rates when they need a spot quote for shipments that don’t fit within traditional LTL or truckload parameters. By using this service, customers pay the going rate for the space their freight actually uses, not a previously agreed upon LTL contract price, said SMC³. This volume LTL freight can move on a carrier’s backhaul or chronic empty lanes — a benefit for the carriers — and is priced at spot-market rates, which can save shippers money. Volume LTL can be looked at as a mutually beneficial arrangement among shippers and carriers.
Congress needs to commit to funding the needed infrastructure highway projects so that we can keep pace with the demand, and the demand is out there.

Demand for air cargo grew by 3.5 percent in 2018, a significant deceleration from 9.7 percent growth in 2017, while January 2019 saw a year-over-year drop of 1.8 percent, according to IATA.
