Triton Overseas Transport Switches to Rate Explorer for Ocean Contract and Quote Management

Article Editor: Christopher Laird Simmons

Triton selects Management Dynamics solution to improve the accuracy of its rate quotes and better manage margins

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - September 28, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Management Dynamics, Inc., the market leader in tariff and contract management solutions for the ocean transportation industry, today announced Triton Overseas Transport has implemented Rate Explorer to replace its current contract and quote management system. Triton's operations team uses the full Rate Explorer suite to respond faster to customer requests with rate quotes that accurately represent the company's margin targets.

Rate Explorer manages a portfolio of internal contracts as well as contracts from a shippers association. Triton benefits from Rate Explorer's full bottom-line shipment costs which include port-port rates, outport arbitraries, and inlands, as well as dynamic links to their carrier's rule tariffs for up-to-date assessorial charges. This complete accounting of shipment costs significantly improves the accuracy of rate quotes as compared with the limitation of only port-port rates in the previous system. Using a streamlined workflow and side-by-side comparison of shipment options, Triton's staff works with customers over the telephone and can generate rate quotes on the same call. Management can monitor the number of quotes that turn and use reporting and analysis tools to measure margins on each transaction as well as overall win ratios by trade lane and commodity.

"Rate Explorer enables my operations team to work directly with our customers over the telephone, to build a routing that best meets their needs, and confidently price the business," said John Onorato, chief operating officer of Triton Overseas Transport. "By upgrading our contract and quote management systems to Rate Explorer, we no longer have to sacrifice margins for speedy response."

"Triton clearly recognizes the importance of providing customers with speed, accuracy and options when preparing rate quotes," said John Preuninger, chief operating officer of Management Dynamics. "As shippers become more accustom to this instant turnaround of rate requests, logistics service providers like Triton will be best positioned to capture new customer relationships."
