Management Dynamics Introduces Tariff Publishing Module for NVOCCs
Simplifies Tariff Management and Reduces Cost of Compliance with FMC Regulations
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - February 10, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Management Dynamics, Inc.
(www.ManagementDynamics.com), the market leader in price and contract management solutions for the
ocean transportation industry, today announced the immediate availability of NVOCC Tariff
Publisher(tm), a new Rate Explorer® module that simplifies the management of NVOCC tariffs and
significantly reduces the cost of compliance with FMC regulations.
Mandated by the Federal Maritime Commission, tariff management for NVOCCs is an expensive and
cumbersome process. Moreover, failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines of tens
to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The NVOCC Tariff Publisher module seamlessly integrates with
current NVOCC pricing activities, offering a number of key advantages:
The NVOCC Tariff Publisher module is delivered over the Internet as a service and can be fully
implemented in less than one week. All an NVOCC needs to implement it is a browser and connectivity
to the Internet.
- Speed: update and post a rate tariff change in minutes in-house without involving a third-
- Simplicity: manage tariffs with the same level of effort and skill required to email a rate
or commodity change to a third party publisher
- Accuracy: tariff management becomes an integral part of the process with more control over
timely and complete updates
- Savings: avoid the cost and hassle of engaging a third party publisher
"The NVOCC Tariff Publisher module has allowed us to fully manage our FMC rate tariffs with far less
effort than using a third-party publisher," said Brad Heier, Managing Director, TSC Container
Freight. "It is an intuitive application that was easy to implement in our current process. With
the NVOCC Tariff Publisher module we have the ability to quickly check our rate tariff prior to
booking and, if needed, amend or add a new rate in seconds."
"For years we have used third-party publishers to maintain our rate tariff, but as our business has
grown, the costs of this service have become significant," said Alan Baer, President, Ocean World
Lines, a subsidiary of Pacer International. "The NVOCC Tariff Publisher module offers an immediate
payback by substantially reducing these costs and gives my organization more control over the
management of our rate tariff."
"We have seen impressive results over the past year as our NVOCC clients have taken control of their
ocean contracts to implement new top-line growth strategies and improve their buy-side costs with
Rate Explorer s Contract Management module," said John Preuninger, President, Management Dynamics.
"In addition, the NVOCC Tariff Publisher module of Rate Explorer has been successfully implemented at
several clients and has simplified the process of maintaining an NVOCC tariff at a much lower cost
than using a third-party publisher."
