Shipment costing can be integrated with SMC3's RatewareXL shipment rating products to calculate the revenue of each costed shipment. This provides an automated method of shipment profitability analysis, particularly when costing prospective freight or when costing or re-rating files containing large amounts of traffic.
This add-on segment to the Cost Intelligence System keys off of shipment data fields for article classes, discount, fuel surcharge, accessorial revenue, and loading allowances, to be used in shipment revenue calculation. With the ability to store this additional data, entered in the same manner as other shipment input data, the CIS can both cost and rate the shipment file.
Rating with Pricing/CIS is accomplished at the time that a shipment file is selected for costing by the CIS user. An on-screen window with an option to rate appears when the costing is initiated, displaying a menu of tariff choices. Once the tariff is selected, the shipment file is rated automatically and the shipment revenue is developed, prior to activation of the cost program.
The system can also calculate divisions and reduce revenue for freight that moves interline to/from a connecting carrier.
