Redwood Logistics, one of the fastest-growing supply chain and logistics companies in North America, today announced a partnership with MercuryGate, integrating Redwood’s Rating API with MercuryGate’s Transportation Management System (TMS). This dynamic integration will provide MercuryGate TMS users with instant rates, robust capacity, and 100% tender acceptance delivered instantly through RedwoodConnect™, a proprietary, turnkey supply chain integration platform-as-a-service. Logistics experts can now expect to streamline operations and tap into automated rate execution as part of Redwood’s integrated LPaaS (Logistics Platform as a Service), which connects shippers to the best industry solutions, people and technology.

Built on top of a proprietary machine-learning pricing module, Redwood's Rating API provides customers with market-responsive rate visibility and one click tendering through the new integration. MercuryGate’s highly configurable, SaaS-based TMS can manage multi-leg, multimodal shipments across the country or across the planet as a single, digital freight platform for all shipments and modes.

“Redwood’s Rating API integrates directly into existing TMS or any other logistics application, enabling users to simplify connections, streamline communication and enhance visibility across the entire supply chain,” said Steve Walton, President, Supply Chain Solutions, Redwood. “Backed by Redwood’s nearly 20 years of supply chain experience, a good part of which was spent side-by-side in close collaboration with MercuryGate, the Rating API will now connect customers to Redwood’s private network of over 30,000 carriers, enabling MercuryGate TMS users one-click access to thousands of carriers, delivering speed, security and scalability.”

Shippers choose MercuryGate to optimize transportation across the entire supply chain for all modes, combined with a state-of-the-art exception management. Benefits include streamlined operations, increased visibility, improved productivity, improved transportation processes, reduced costs and increased customer satisfaction.

“MercuryGate is the only full-power, feature-rich TMS that is singularly focused on strategic freight transportation management automation and has been for over two decades,” said Joe Juliano, President and CEO of MercuryGate. “The result is a best-of-breed transportation management platform that enables logistics experts to execute efficiencies previously unattainable and empower relative newcomers to perform at expert levels they could not otherwise achieve. Integrating with Redwood’s Rating API will enable MercuryGate users to streamline processes, ensuring scalability and success navigating the increased volatility across the freight transportation markets.”
