Gravity Supply Chain, a developer of cloud-based apps that helps companies modernise the management of their global supply chains, has released RTM (Route-to-Market), a new tile for its Transport app that provides up-to-date sailing schedules for over 50 major ocean carriers, over 250,000 port pairs covering over 90% of the world’s container capacity. Logistics providers can deliver these capabilities directly to their customers as part of their supply chain visibility and execution solutions.
The RTM tile offers a sailing schedules search engine so users can select any global port pair and date range, and instantly see all sailing options. Users can also upload information related to contracted rates with shipping lines to create lists of routes, then filter them by factors like quickest sailing route and cost.
“RTM is the newest feature of our mission to create one data hub that provides our users with the real-time information they need to view, control, share and execute sourcing, supply, transport, inventory and selling activities worldwide,” said COO Darren Palfrey. “This is especially valuable to 3PLs struggling to close the technology gap between what shippers need, and what all but the industry’s largest players can offer.”
The RTM tile is available today at no cost to all Transport app users. Transport is one of Gravity’s suite of apps that make up its cloud-based end-to-end supply chain management and logistics platform.
