SCOTTSDALE, August 17, 2023 – Emerge, the leading provider of innovative freight procurement solutions, is thrilled to announce its strategic partnership with e2open, the connected supply chain SaaS platform with the largest multi-enterprise network. This collaboration brings together the expertise and capabilities of both companies to revolutionize the way shippers and carriers make strategic decisions and optimize their supply chain operations.
Emerge’s freight procurement platform, designed by freight professionals for freight professionals, empowers shippers and carriers to make data-driven decisions supported by real-time connectivity. With features like Dynamic Book it Now, the Emerge Marketplace consisting of 45,000 quality carriers, and the Premier Carrier Program, Emerge enables shippers to make informed choices and streamline their procurement processes.
E2open’s supply chain platform has been instrumental in transforming the operations of the world’s largest companies. In today’s complex and interconnected supply chains, having an integrated platform is crucial for managing end-to-end processes and responding swiftly to challenges.
The partnership between Emerge and e2open offers its mutual shippers the seamless integration of Emerge’s Spot Marketplace with e2open Transportation Management (TMS). E2open users can now access Emerge for spot pricing, leveraging Dynamic Book it Now functionality and gaining access to thousands of carriers and Emerge’s Premier Carrier Program. This integration enhances capacity options for shippers, complementing their existing network partners. Tendering, load execution, and tracking can all be performed through e2open, providing a streamlined workflow for shippers.
Key features of the Emerge platform include:
- Dynamic Book it Now (DBIN): Shippers can set a starting and ceiling rate for DBIN, and the system will automatically increment the rate toward the ceiling rate during the bidding duration. This feature allows shippers to capture the best price for their shipments without the need for manual rate adjustments.
- Rate Pulse: To maximize savings, shippers can also utilize their spot benchmarking tool that reveals current market rates and Emerge lane history. It gives shippers the confidence to set rates for DBIN and allows carriers to book instantly without bidding.
- The Emerge Marketplace: Over 45,000 carriers offer additional capacity and rate competition. Shippers can also leverage Emerge’s Premier Carrier Program, consisting of marketplace carriers identified by Emerge for their large fleets and outstanding performance metrics. This program provides shippers direct access to carriers that bring added value to RFP events, ensuring reliable service and quality performance.
Through the Emerge and e2open partnership, shippers gain direct access to Emerge’s extensive carrier network while maintaining visibility into carrier details and performance. This eliminates the need to set up new carriers, saves time, and streamlines operations.
