Internet Truckstop, a Web-based freight matching service, announced it will be fully integrated with MercuryGate’s Transportation Management System on Oct. 5. Internet Truckstop says it has worked with MercuryGate for years, integrating with Internet Truckstop flagship products such as searching and posting loads.

Soon, MercuryGate customers will have the ability to use Internet Truckstop’s latest decision support tools, including CACCI, a product that includes Carrier Performance Reporting, Authority History, CSA/score analysis, Carrier Director and Cargo/Liability Insurance Monitoring, as well as RateMate. These Internet Truckstop tools can be accessed through MercuryGate’s Carma carrier management system.

CACCI’s CPR portion includes an A-F carrier rating scale and monitors changes to the carrier’s CPR Rating; it allows access to and reporting of carrier complaints, compliments and rebuttals. The carrier Authority portion is current status and history reports up to five years. The CSA Rating is included in this tool along with Internet Truckstop rankings, carrier status and history with cargo and crash indicators. Carrier Directory provides a complete carrier profile. Last, the availability to monitor cargo and liability insurance coverage and view certificates rounds out this product.

RateMate – which provides a daily accumulation of U.S. and Canadian lane-rate information and paid freight rate information submitted by Internet Truckstop dry van, refrigerated and flatbed customers – will be available within MercuryGate’s TMS. Internet Truckstop says MercuryGate’s customers will have easy access from within the TMS to view its historical rate information by lane and equipment type to get a better understanding of spot market rates for a particular load.

The service within MercuryGate will allow the user to select a menu option from an individual load and enable quick decision-making with the information provided by Internet Truckstop, the company says.
