RateLinx Automates Courier Shipments with ShipLinx TMS

MADISON, Wis.Dec. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RateLinx, a leader in customized shipping and logistics management software and consulting, has added automation to its courier module in ShipLinx TMS, expanding the platform to include Day Runner on-demand courier services. Beginning December 1, RateLinx customers can manage their Day Runner courier deliveries as seamlessly as their other shipments. Similar to ShipLinx' truckload Auction Module, customers select the service option that best matches their needs for a particular delivery. Then Radar Track and TraceSM provides complete and accurate pickup and delivery status. Intelligent Invoice ManagementSM is integrated for invoice capture, payment and analytics. This automated process allows customers to manage courier deliveries with the visibility, speed and efficiency previously only available for other modes of freight.


"We are pleased to bring this value-added service to our customers," said RateLinx President and Founder Shannon Vaillancourt. "Most companies find the manual processes surrounding courier use burdensome, so we've automated courier delivery management within ShipLinx TMS. Our customers can now manage courier services with the same advanced visibility, analytics and business intelligence that makes the RateLinx solution so valuable."

Based in Charlotte, NC, Day Runner currently offers on-demand delivery for consumers and enterprises in 18 major U.S. cities. Unlike traditional courier services, Day Runner leverages its proprietary technology platform to create a flexible network of uniformed Runners for a single delivery, overflow assistance or fleet replacement.

"RateLinx recognized that its customers face common, recurring problems with courier deliveries," said Day Runner CEO and Founder Marvin Walker. "We are looking forward to working with RateLinx to provide a better way to manage courier services."
