Top 20 Freight Management Tools

Typically, when a customer places an order, they expect a hassle-free last-mile delivery process, by which we mean free shipping, safe transit, and speedy delivery at the lowest cost. Recently, cargo companies have found it more challenging to facilitate their business operations, especially because of the pandemic.

As a result, freight brokers failed to deliver quality services, charged above the quoted rate, and provided no warranty for the products due to ineffective logistics management & supply chain management (SCM).
