Innovative carriers use the SMC³ Platform to manage LTL rating and transit information across all customers with one solution. The Platform includes a wide range of transportation services and enables carriers to choose the right fit based on their specific needs to increase responsiveness and lower cost per shipment.

SMC³ Execution and Visibility LTL APIs:

  • Integrate directly to freight transportation carriers and enable real-time shipment communications that ensure an orchestrated process between dispatch, tracking and imaging.
  • Go beyond simple connectivity to automate workflows and provide event-based notifications.
  • Bring order to various carrier terminologies by standardizing vocabulary across status codes and document types.

    • Orchestrated dispatch
    • Streamlined workflows
    • Automatic shipment status
