Cargo Chief Partners With Tai Software to Provide DFM, Capacity, and Pricing for 3PLs

San Francisco, Calif., May 6, 2022 — Cargo Chief, a top provider of procurement and pricing software for freight brokers, and Tai Software, a TMS built explicitly for brokers, announced today the completion of their digital freight matching, capacity, and pricing integration. This new partnership will bring speed, precision, and centralized control to brokerages’ operations.

Cargo Chief’s goal is to partner with transportation management systems to provide 3PLs and freight brokerages the tools they need to expand their carrier base, book more freight, and gain insights to make the next best decision for an enriched experience.

With this integration, Tai Software users will be able to go beyond rudimentary carrier information and build carrier relationships with an enriched profile including, lane information and frequency. Their carrier network will instantaneously sync and update with C4’s database as they qualify and onboard new carriers.

Paired with carrier expansion, users can streamline their carrier outreach by automating email communication as loads are built with Cargo Chief’s Booking Assistant for rapid capacity while driving carrier engagement, retention, and prioritizing the next task.

Along with Cargo Chief’s carrier network, Tai Software users will have access to Cargo Chief’s pricing data that forecasts up-to-the-minute rates based on recent transactions, offering low to high suggestions and a confidence score of what you should likely pay.

“With this new integration, freight brokers will adapt much quicker to market volatility and optimize their booking process that includes the speed and scalability needed to grow,” said Cargo Chief’s Co-founder and VP, Chris Arredondo. “This also gives them the flexibility to focus on activities that have bigger outcomes and let their tools do the rest.”

“This is a differentiator for Tai Software users,” said Daniel Ely, Tai Software’s Director of Product. “Not only do they get capacity information, but also the market intelligence data with real-time rates. With this integration you get the best of everything – you get the market intelligence, the carrier quotes, and the “book-now“ feature all in one tool. This is something you don’t see with other partners.”
