Shippers will gain near real-time price quoting and capacity through integration
NFI Industries has collaborated with Blue Yonder to offer on-the-spot price quoting and freight capacity through an integration with Blue Yonder’s dynamic pricing discovery solution. As freight capacity tightens, the ability to find the right carrier at the right price becomes increasingly difficult. By utilising Blue Yonder’s dynamic pricing discovery solution, NFI will be able to provide real-time price quotes based on market dynamics, while also securing the necessary freight capacity.
NFI will extend its reach to more shippers through Blue Yonder’s transportation management solution, which has a large portfolio of customers. The dynamic price discovery solution can be adopted by existing Blue Yonder transportation management customers seamlessly. By synching their technologies, Blue Yonder and NFI will help increase profitability for shippers and carriers.
The partnership has generated new ways to engage customers, enabling NFI to better help shippers continually improve. It has established a more reliable and sustainable foundation that allows NFI to be more efficient, agile, and innovative.
The dynamic price discovery solution is built on Blue Yonder’s Luminate Platform, which is powered by Microsoft Azure. Luminate Platform combines data from both internal and external sources – spanning shippers’ digital supply chain ecosystems – to leverage both artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), enabling smarter and more actionable business decisions.
