CzarLite for Technology Providers

CzarLite® | Base Rate Standard for TMS Providers

Technology providers choose most widely used LTL base rate in North America

For your ERP and TMS customers, evaluating multiple carriers for less-than-truckload shipments is like comparing apples to oranges unless they start with a neutral, benchmark rate. CzarLite® from SMC³ is the industry benchmark for thousands of LTL contracts that account for billions of dollars in managed transportation each year.

By integrating with the CzarLite® family of base rates, you provide your customers with unrivaled accuracy and usability, empowering them to:

  • Negotiate their transportation spend using the same base rate system, regardless of carrier, to ensure total pricing visibility
