Less time, more accuracy, instant updates.
For freight forwarders, productivity is key. The benefits of integrating TACT Tariffs directly into your transportation management system can be substantial. Let’s take a look at the value TACT Tariffs integration can bring to you.
Customers have reported a per tariff search reduction from 180 seconds to less than 10.
If you are overseeing a global network, that makes even 250 shipments per day, you can expect a $60,000 saving in labour costs alone.
Search results based on up-to-date tariffs appear directly in your system, significantly reducing the human error that results in delays, incorrect billings and risk of higher non-compliance.
It’s not just money. Providing a more reliable service means better customer relationships, faster transit times and more long-term contracts.
API or Flat File?
TACT Integration comes in two formats: API (Web Service) and Flat File.
The main factors for deciding between versions is the technology of your existing software and your business requirements.
