MercuryGate to link TMS platform with last-mile delivery monitoring
In an effort to help shippers provide more visibility over their customers’ orders, logistics technology provider MercuryGate International Inc. has teamed with Convey Inc., whose technology platform helps optimize last mile delivery, the firms said today.
Cary, N.C.-based MercuryGate will integrate its transportation management system (TMS) solution with Convey’s delivery experience management (DEM) software. Set to be available by early June, the combination will allow shippers to launch DEM programs that provide complete visibility through the last mile of delivery, MercuryGate said.
Once the system launches, shippers will be able to deliver customers’ orders how and when they expect and will, offering in-transit insights and collaborative tools for all customer orders, providing improved service while containing costs, the company said.
The deal is Austin, Texas-based Convey’s latest move to build connections between its last-mile delivery software suite and industry partners. In 2018, Convey announced linkages with with specialized logistics service providers such as Flexe Inc., Sedlak Supply Chain Consultants Inc., and Estes Forwarding Worldwide.
