Uber Freight partners with BluJay to widen access to its marketplace
Tech company allows API integration to give access to Uber Freight
Supply chain software provider BluJay Solutionsand Uber Freight have announced a partnership that links BluJay’s transportation management system into Uber Freight’s platform.
The integration is through API, linking BluJay’s Transportation Management to Uber Freight’s real-time pricing and tendering capabilities.
Users of the BluJay platform can pull instant quotes, booking, and carrier matching from Uber Freight. Uber says that it now has more than 50,000 carriers onboarded to its platform.
“It’s become more important than ever for supply chains to be flexible and dynamic to keep pace with a constantly changing market,” said Laurent Hautefeuille, Head of Business Development at Uber Freight. “Together with BluJay, we’re making our tech-forward approach to freight available to more businesses looking for increased foresight and control of their operations.”
“At BluJay, we aim to help our customers achieve operational excellence by providing the tools they need to make immediate, informed business decisions. With Uber Freight’s transparent marketplace, our TMS customers can easily access a new level of capacity with real-time visibility so they can plan for the weeks ahead and account for last-minute market shifts,” said Bryant Smith, Global Product Manager at BluJay Solutions. “This integration and the responsiveness it allows shippers is a ‘right now’ solution for customers facing today’s challenges, but also during the more traditional market fluctuation.”
“For many BluJay customers, right now it’s more crucial than ever that their products make it to grocery shelves on time,” said Bill Madden, VP of Managed Transportation Services (MTS) at BluJay. “We have been successful in our ability to rapidly and accurately execute on behalf of our customers, and have leveraged solid support through BluJay’s Uber Freight API integration. For example, we were able to stand up the platform and push the first load tender all inside of a single business day for one of our food manufacturer shippers. We’re seeing early adoption across both our managed customers and our TMS shippers, all with the same goal of making the right decisions quickly to keep freight moving through the supply chain.”
