3PL Services — Nexterus offers LTL, TL, parcel, and international freight management that helps shippers’ products move through the supply chain. Vetted carriers respond to bids for shipments they can make on time. Nexterus may choose other suitable carriers based on cost, reliability, and KPIs.

Nexterus handles all contract negotiations and agreements for freight movement. Based on freight characteristics and delivery requirements, they help select the most efficient transportation mode. They also provide all documentation, including bills of lading and customs paperwork.

Transportation Management System — Companies may purchase the Nexterus TMS to handle their own freight. Clients can import their carriers or use Nexterus’ network of carriers to move freight. The TMS provides real-time tracking and monitoring of shipments, allowing businesses to keep tabs on their freight’s location and estimated arrival times. The TMS provides quotes, dispatch information, and reports. Support services include freight bill audit and pay so clients don’t leave money on the table.
