Unveiling the Game-Changing Features

At the heart of Emerge's platform lie innovative features designed to redefine procurement excellence:

  1. Dynamic Book it Now (DBIN): This revolutionary tool empowers shippers to set a starting and ceiling rate for their spot quote. The system then automatically adjusts the rate incrementally towards the ceiling rate during the bidding period. This automated dynamic pricing mechanism eliminates the need for constant manual rate adjustments, saving precious time and ensuring cost efficiency.
  1. Rate Pulse: To maximize savings, shippers can utilize Rate Pulse, a spot benchmarking tool that provides real-time market rates and Emerge lane history. This data-driven feature empowers shippers to confidently set rates for DBIN, enabling carriers to book instantly without the need for conventional bidding.
  1. The Emerge Marketplace: With over 45,000 carriers, the marketplace offers unparalleled access to capacity and rate competition. Additionally, the Premier Carrier Program, carefully curated by Emerge, provides shippers direct access to marketplace carriers known for their exceptional performance metrics and extensive fleets. This program enhances the procurement process with added reliability and quality.

By capitalizing on the Emerge and e2open partnership, shippers enjoy direct access to Emerge's platform while retaining visibility into carrier details and performance. The days of setting up new carriers are behind us, as this streamlined process not only saves valuable time but also assures reliability and quality backed by the extensive Emerge network.
