CDN Carrier Exchange

carrier eXchange

You are here


Eliminate paper processes, double key entry, logistics chatter, and the need for multiple driver applications when sharing loads with other carriers.

The Carrier exchange is a simple to implement "EDI" solution that enables Carrier TMS systems to share loads and inventory with each other in real-time.  The exchange facilitates the flow of logistics data from one system to another without process change. 250+ Carrier companies already use their own TMS system, driver application and the exchange to transact load, ePoD and delivery status information every day. Costly and time-consuming paper processes, double key data entry and email/telephone communications have been eliminated.
