Digitize LTL Shipments with SMC³ LTL APIs

Automate the shipment lifecycle with freight transportation visibility solutions

SMC³’s API solutions allow freight transportation stakeholders to digitize the LTL shipment lifecycle from quote to delivery. Whether via seamless integration to an existing transportation management system or the SMC³ cloud-based LTL GO application, logistics service providers can:

  • Receive LTL quotes for volume, contract, broker and dynamic pricing and transit schedules from multiple carriers
  • Digitally schedule pickups conveniently and quickly, receiving immediate confirmation
  • Use Electronic Bill of Lading (eBOL) to digitally transmit shipping information to carriers quickly and securely
  • Instantly assign PRO numbers to shipments prior to pickup
  • Track and trace in-transit shipments and inventory via real-time messaging
  • Automate invoice generation, and view and download digital documents including weight certification, proof of delivery, bills of lading and other critical shipment information

Leading TMS providers like MercuryGate, Oracle and BlueYonder partner with SMC³ to provide their customers with unmatched LTL freight shipment expertise.

Don’t have a TMS? No problem. With LTL GO, LSPs can access shipment visibility and document retrieval capabilities in an easy-to-use web application. LTL GO users can connect to numerous carriers to obtain price quotes, schedule pickups, check shipment statuses, and receive digital shipment documents using a single online solution.
