C.H. Robinson introduces Freightview for small and midsized businesses

C.H. Robinson has introduced Freightview, a neutral, cloudbased transportation management system (TMS) software platform.

According to the company, the new platform cuts the amount of time time and money small and midsized businesses (SMBs) spend on freight shipping by streamlining quoting, booking, tracking, and reporting.

Freightview was created to provide an innovative and valuable communication tool to SMBs who remain underserved by the TMS software market and use multiple less than truckload (LTL) transportation service providers, according to the company.

“Many shippers are growing quickly, but managing freight is slowing them down. We built Freightview so small and midsized business can be more competitive in today’s marketplace,” said Jason Roberts, co-founder of Freightview. “Freightview redefines a business’s relationship with shipping as employees ship freight in a fraction of the time and managers gain control and visibility of shipping operations.”

Freightview allows a shipper to be completely setup with the system in 24-48 hours. Freightview facilitates automated communication between a shipper and their service provider utilizing a patent pending Application Program Interface (API) workflow process. API eliminates the need to connect electronically with carriers through the intensive and drawn out Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) process.

“In this new era of cloud based applications, API’s are the standard protocol that allow computing systems to interact with one another, thus allowing businesses to exchange information faster and easier,” said Jordan Kass, president of Managed Services at C.H. Robinson. “This is the EDI of the future.”
