Contract Management Technology

GT Nexus is contract management technology that empowers ocean shippers to evaluate optimally and proactively to control their multimillion-dollar transportation spend through a collaborative portal that centralizes, standardizes, and integrates processes for procuring, allocating and managing global transportation services. Managing the entire freight contracting process is complex, involving dozens of providers, hundreds to thousands of locations, non-standard agreements and highly manual processes. While attention is given to key lanes, the inability to evaluate all lanes leaves significant money on the table. Rates quickly get out of sync after contract award, affecting provider selection and auditing. It’s no surprise that most shippers find themselves reactive when it comes to procuring, awarding, and managing freight contracts.
