Pros: Eternal Beverages isn't a logistics company but URoute allows us to submit bid requests, have load visibility and receive pricing as if we were in the industry.

Cons: We have no complaints in our first 6-months with URoute.

Recommendations to other buyers: URoute is a solid company and interested in serving your needs. They have done custom programming for us and that is not a service you can find everywhere. Make sure the companies you are looking at will stand behind you and make the product user friendly for your team.

U Route reduces freight costs and increases transparency

Comments: U Route is an intuitive and easy to implement TMS solution. The software helps organizations professionally manage their carrier network internally while not relying on an expensive third party solution. U Route's value to shippers is that freight analytics and carrier management can be insourced at a nominal cost. I highly recommend U Route to any organization looking to improve processes in logistics, accounts payable and management reporting. Moreover, the strategy behind U Route's platform helps ensure that the most competitive freight rates in the market are visible to shippers.

The insourcing of freight management, however, comes with its challenges. Since the shippers and carriers are the sources of data input, downstream reports are impacted by data quality issues that might stem from typos or mistakes made throughout a load life cycle. For this reason, internal training is very important and if users do not fully understand the implications of their contributions to the system, they might be less inclined to provide reliable inputs.

Comments: BPS is an automotive core supplier to the rebuilding industry across the country, including Alaska and Hawaii. We also ship internationally.

We started with U Route nearly 2 years ago. It's been quite a change in the way we do our freight. U Route has made it considerably easier and saved us both time and money. Before U Route, we would get in an order for a trailer load of merchandise and begin calling around to brokers and trucking companies for costs and then wait to hear back to get all results.

Today, we just go online to U Route, enter the information, and set up freight shipments. In less than 2 minutes, the job is complete!

After the first year of service, we saw a savings of over 10% on freight costs. This year should be much better. When vendors realized the volume we had with them, they decreased their rates, lowering our costs. I still check with other vendors to verify the cost savings. However, U Route is handling 75% of our business. It is easy and has saved time as well as money. The program is beneficial because it provides cost analysis, monthly trends, and customer reports - plus we can track the shipments, should any problems arise. I've been quite pleased with this program.

Simply Amazing.

Comments: It's so easy. They have an amazingly simple, user-friendly interface. It took no time at all to have my whole staff up and running.

We only use U Route for RFQ, bid management, and load tendering (EDI), and it is perfect for that. We do not utilize their other functionality, so I can't provide a review on what we don't use.

U Route is really well thought out. I have used a lot of transportation software; U Route is much easier than anything else I've tried, and for me, easier equals better. For the price, you can't beat it.

I have never had a problem with U Route not getting back to me on something, so for me, customer support has been fine.

So simple, yet it does so much. As a 3PL, we utilize U Route for all of our RFQ's and load tenders. We input all of our lane OD pairs and carrier responses come back electronically. No more spreadsheets and emails. All of the carrier responses are in the same format, which is nice. U Route makes carrier awards and tenders extremely simple.

Do your homework. We shopped around and demoed several systems. There are TMS's that do more, but for what we were looking to accomplish (primarily bid management), U Route was the perfect fit.

Pros: The ease of use and support are excellent. We have been able to implement the system fairly easily and have been supported by uRoute staff every step of the way.

Cons: We have only had to request some minor adjustments and tweaks to the program in order to better suit our application.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking for an affordable TMS solution that can easily be implemented, then uRoute is an ideal fit. It does not have all of the bells and whistles of the much more expensive systems, but it provides quick and easy access while offering a lot of flexibility.

Pros: The ability to see all of Tarco's loads from all three shipping locations is very important to our corporate management. U Route gives us that, plus it helps us to lower our freight cost by exposing us to more carriers to competitively bid on our loads.

Cons: It would be better if they had a version that was just for Tarco, but since they have many other customers using their software, we realize that is not possible.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would suggest that anyone looking for a TMS to organize and manage their freight thoroughly check out U Route. We feel it is the best value for the money, especially since their is no huge capital cost involved (as so many other TMS systems have). You only pay monthly based on your freight spend for that month.

U Route is great!

Pros: U Route gives us the ability to link our outbound loads with truckers that are looking for those routes in an efficient format.

Recommendations to other buyers: Work with the U Route team to understand how the program works.
