Modular transportation logistics automation platform

About UltraShipTMS

UltraShipTMS is a modular, web-based transportation logistics automation solution built to serve high volume shippers in the US, Canada and Mexico. The platform is robust and flexible enough to address any and all complex transportation logistics challenges for food shippers, consumer product groups, retailers, building materials manufacturers, and more. The UltraShipTMS platform delivers efficient, effective transportation management and supply chain optimization, inbound and outbound across all modes.

UltraShipTMS offers a powerful optimization engine which allows users to view and compare routes, schedules and loading models in seconds to help minimize empty miles and reduce overall fuel cost. With broader visibility into delivery scheduling, users can improve loading/utilization efficiency and can better accommodate last minute orders or disruptions. UltraShipTMS’s advanced scheduling tool automates appointment and dock scheduling regarding pickup and delivery for both inbound and outbound shipments. Features include on-time reporting, communication tools, and control over accessorial spend. Carriers can select from a list of available appointment times, and real-time carrier notifications inform users of available loading docks/doors, hours of operation, and loading times for each dock.

The UltraShipTMS CORE module automates rating, routing, tendering, carrier management, OS&D, scheduling, alerts and notifications, EDI, wireless and telematics communications and more. Robust fleet management functionality supports dispatching via integration with telematics systems, backhaul creation and billing, equipment histories, driver hours, invoice reconciliation, proximity searches, mileage lookups, and more. Yard management features include security, inventory, jockey, gate and dock management with reporting and alerts.

    Technology is as powerful (and in some cases even MORE powerful) as the big guys, but the service and support is personalized and consistent with what you'd get from a boutique provider. Best of both worlds.

    Pros

    Super easy to use and navigate. Great carrier and rate management features, and very useful appointment scheduling function. Also very effectively allows me to manage our private fleet from the same screen as our common carriers.

    Cons

    Couldn't really think of anything I would change about it.

    Response from UltraShipTMS

    Thanks for such a great, positive review Anton. We're pleased you find the product so useful.

    This is Ultraship

    Reviewed on 2019/02/05

    Pros

    Easy of use. Some TMS systems are cumbersome, slow and confusing. Ultraship is quick and very user friendly.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is, one weekend we were locked out and the on call tech support was spotty. We got back in but it took several hours.

    Response from UltraShipTMS

    Not all clients/customers opt to engage 24x7x365 premium support. Most are comfortable with the Monday through Friday support hours that are included at no additional charge in every customer's subscription fees.

    Our support team responded on a weekend even though premium support was not activated in this account. While it is always frustrating to wait for assistance, in reality, this support request was addressed far ahead of when it would have been if the Ultra Support team waited until 6AM the following Monday to respond.

    It is for this commitment to service that the UltraShipTMS Client Support Dept. was presented with a Gold Stevie Award in the `Customer Service Department of the Year¿ category during The 12th Annual American Business Awards in Chicago.

    Locating trailers sometimes requires looking in several YMS locations.
    Late code changes and reviewing requires too many mouse clicks.

    Pros

    I like the ease with which I am able to pull reports.

    Cons

    I dislike the number of mouse clicks it take to change and review a late code. I feel as though I'm developing carpal tunnel syndrome in my right index finger, due to all the clicking.

    Pros

    SaaS don't need a lot of shipper IT support. Product can be used for private fleets and managing over the road carriers. ease of use and support provided

    Cons

    Again I was part of a team that evaluated TMS solutions. Ultraship was my choice but the team went with a different vendor.

    Independent Sales Agent Customized TMS

    Reviewed on 2015/09/03

    Pros

    The TMS is customized for my specific business. UltraShip delivered a specific TMS that is very unique to my business model.

    Cons

    I do not get to use the product enough. Although I am out of my comfort zone when it comes to technology, UltraShip's TMS product is a very useful technology that I must have to grow.
