In today's fast-paced freight industry, the ability to respond quickly and accurately is essential, and this partnership enables brokers to do just that! Brokers can now streamline their communication and quoting processes, ensuring their automated workflows are powered by the industry’s most accurate spot market data. 

Axle’s product, Beacon, streamlines communications for brokers by connecting all their software systems, from their TMS to quoting and scheduling tools, to their inbox and CRM. Freight brokers can quickly generate rate quotes by pulling data from their  trusted rate provider tools such as

Beacon enables freight brokers to:

  • Instantly build loads and do away with manual data entry.
  • Accelerate pickup and drop-off appointment scheduling.
  • Automate customer and carrier track and trace updates.

"We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Greenscreens," said Akshitha Ramachandran, Head of Growth at Axle. "By integrating Greenscreens' dynamic-pricing platform into Beacon, we are providing our customers with powerful tools to elevate their communication and customer relationships."

With this integration, brokers can leverage both the Target Rates and Network Rates quotes in two innovative ways:

Target vs Network Models: For every prediction, Greenscreens provides a Network Rate prediction and a Target Buy Rate prediction. The Network Rate prediction is produced by the network model, which uses our entire network's load data. The Target Buy Rate prediction is created by a model trained to predict a brokerage’s rates, based both on the brokerage’s data and data from Greenscreens’ entire network.
