Think Outside Your Transportation Management System - Software Examined

Featured Image

Our Transportation Management System (TMS) has tools for literally any business that ships parcel or freight. We save time and money at every single stage of the shipping process, Rate Shop-Ship-Track-Analyze-Audit.

Seven years ago, we developed a robust TMS solution for our own internal shipping needs. Our software performed so well, we rolled it out to market and FreightPOP was born.  

In this post, we outline our specific capabilities to help businesses:

  • Shop for the best carrier rates
  • Ship with best-in-class integrations to carrier websites, with compliance and labeling tools
  • Track your entire supply chain with real-time internal and proactive customer alerts  
  • Analyze your entire supply chain 
  • Audit what you are billed to catch overcharges and assess carrier performance

TMS Flexibility

The main problem we were trying to solve for when we developed our shipping software, or TMS, was flexibility. What existed on the market at the time could not reasonably be customized to fit our exact business needs. And any systems that were flexible and complicated enough were extremely expensive. 

So we developed highly customizable tools that help businesses to rate shop, ship, automate processes, proactively track, and report on ROI at a cost small and medium-sized businesses can afford.


1) Rate Shopping  

Through real-time integrations and side-by-side comparisons, FreightPOP allows you to: 

  • Always choose the right carrier at the lowest cost, saving up to 30% of freight spend
  • Shop your negotiated rate programs
  • Obtain spot quotes easier
  • Take advantage of FreightPOP Sponsored Rates and marketplaces


With our system, you can arrange data by service type, delivery days, lowest price, or carrier rating. A shipment takes mere seconds to grab a host of carrier options, all available at the click of a few buttons.

Invoice auditing is a crucial part of your shipping process. With our auditing tools, you can:
