  • LogistiFlow could save hours a week for small companies who don’t have a full TMS.
  • LogistiFlow lists all of the chosen carriers and their quotes for a shipment in a one-stop format.
  • Smaller businesses are weeding through email after email to try to tackle the process for themselves.

LogistiFlow announced the inauguration of a cloud-based product that that allows shippers to see quotes from all of their chosen less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers without the need to enter into a contract with a third-party logistics company.

According to the company, the cloud-based program is simple to use and saves time and money while ensuring that shippers have the best possible quote for their carrier needs. Shippers can work directly with freight carriers, using the system to organize and compare quotes.

“LogistiFlow aims to meet a need in the freight industry by providing shippers an easy-to-use system to review and choose a carrier for their shipping needs,” said company founder Joseph Miller. “The cloud-based program lists all of the chosen carriers and their quotes for a shipment in a simple, one-stop format, saving a tremendous amount of time for those in charge of the shipment process. It is the first product that provides shippers with such a tool that does not require a contract or work with a third-party logistics provider.”

LogistiFlow replaces 3PL-provided transportation management system (TMS) rating applications, which, according to Miller, “are no longer necessary in the industry and can be a costly option for shippers.” “The LogistiFlow tool provides the most important information a shipper needs,” Miller added, “including price and transit time, from chosen carriers, leaving out the other information and the middle man that just complicate the process.”

LogistiFlow is designed to benefit shippers of all sizes, whether they ship five or 50 LTL shipments a week. After a 30-day trial, LogistiFlow offers its benefits for a flat monthly fee.

“By using the technology available through the cloud,” said Miller, “we are able to deliver nearly instant quotes at a price our customers can afford.

“We found that many of our customers, especially those with smaller businesses, were trying to get by without anything,” he added. “Instead of a platform to view quotes, these companies were weeding through email after email to try to tackle the process for themselves.”
