Banyan Technology, the industry leader in live carrier and API connectivity for transportation management, announced the extension of its partnership with MercuryGate, the leading transportation management solution (TMS) provider. As a partner, MercuryGate has integrated Banyan’s LIVE Connect™ API solution into its existing TMS to include comprehensive carrier options for its customers, saving them both time and money.
The partnership between Banyan and MercuryGate was originally established to leverage Banyan’s existing connections to a large and diverse group of less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers and 3PLs. The integration between the two companies helped to streamline the rapid deployment of increased functionality in MercuryGate’s TMS platform.
As the partnership continues to grow, MercuryGate clients benefit from product enhancements for all shipping modes within the Banyan platform.
With the integration of Banyan’s platform to its TMS, MercuryGate is able to provide additional services that will save their clients time and money. In addition to the growing, extensive list of API carrier connections, Banyan is continuing to enhance its product offering with features and functionality like QuickShip™, Push Tracking, and Multimode On-Screen. These robust tools provide critical insight into shipments to help clients better manage the ever-changing freight procurement landscape.
“We are excited that the partnership with Banyan continues to drive growth through innovation and helps leverage their expertise in LTL and freight management,” said Kevin Land, executive vice president of sales, MercuryGate International, Inc. “The Banyan API solution, LIVE Connect™, provides our customers with access to a significant amount of LTL carrier connections, and its ease of use will increase our users’ abilities to move freight at the best rates, resulting in cost and time savings. This partnership is truly a win-win-win – for us, for Banyan and for our customers.”
“We value the partnership with MercuryGate and believe it provides us all with opportunities for growth as a result of bringing valuable cost savings to the forefront for increased client satisfaction,” said Banyan CEO, Brian Smith. “Technology will continue to be the differentiator in this industry, and we look forward to continuing to expand our offerings and grow together through the MercuryGate partnership.”
