Riggo Releases Shipper Portal to Enhance Visibility and Transparency
Portal is the next step in building a value-add, digital freight marketplace
NEW YORK – September 17, 2019 – Riggo, the intelligent marketplace for freight, today announced a new shipper portal to enhance visibility and transparency into the quoting and tendering process to reduce costs and increase efficiency.
The new portal provides:
- Instant spot load pricing calculated by a proprietary engine that takes into account both current and historical market rates
- Intelligent matching assistance to find the best carrier for the job once a load is tendered
- Real-time monitoring of freight so customers can see their freight on a map from pickup to deliver and receive opt-in notifications with status updates
- Viewing and downloading the proof of delivery documents uploaded by the carrier
- Access to real-time load KPIs including pipeline, on-time pickup and delivery performance, total cost and average cost per mile
The shipper portal is the next step in building a freight marketplace that will continuously increase value for customers as Riggo becomes a player in the freight marketplace technology space. The company already developed a proprietary tool “Tracy” that uses historical data and insights to match shippers’ freight with the best carriers for clients like Meredith Corporation and Lola.
“We are excited to deliver unrivaled transparency through our shipper portal,” said Bob Charish, CEO. “Lack of visibility is a pain point that comes up often for companies looking to engage with us. We’re building a balanced, intelligent marketplace where carriers and shippers both benefit from data sharing. The shipper portal is another step toward that vision.”
Booking freight today is reliant on inefficient and outdated practices where thousands of brokers negotiate via phone between shippers and carriers, relying on stale data and human searches to find a match and facilitate the transaction. It takes hours to close a single deal, limiting the flow of goods and reducing the profits that can be made by both transacting parties. To exacerbate problems, carriers are hesitant to disclose capacity due to a lack of familiarity and trust.
“While the cost to operate for carriers has been increasing and shippers are facing increasing costs and unknowns due to the tariffs, companies can ill afford to tie up resources to access information that should be readily available. Through this new shipper portal, we’re helping to speed up transactions to increase profit opportunities.” said Charish.
Riggo is a revolutionary digital freight marketplace that optimizes on-demand logistics via a fully customizable and transparent platform. Seamlessly accelerating the connection process between shippers and carriers through a self-service interface, Riggo sidesteps the industry’s common inefficiencies, reduces costs, and vastly upgrades supply chain operations. By working with some of the biggest names across the $700 billion domestic trucking industry, Riggo is fast becoming the standard in real-time tech-enabled freight matching.
