Cerasis Freight Management
Cerasis provides customized freight and logistics solutionsÂ for shippers in North America, yielding hard & soft cost savings through proprietary transportation technology and managed transportation services with a focus on LTL freight management.
Our dedicated carrier relations teamÂ negotiates rates on your behalf with several our select carrier partners or, if you desire, we will co-manage your already established rates with your desired carriers. Our goal is to get you the best rates, maintain those rates year after year, and serve them up for each shipment inÂ our powerful web-based transportation management system. We offer great national pricing due to our deep resources or we will negotiate freight rates down to specific lanes through a Request for Pricing. And unlike a lot of 3PLs, Cerasis empowers you to make the best choice atÂ time of shipmentÂ withÂ the ability to pick carriers who meet your cost, insurance, and delivery time needs.
With a customer retention of over 90% in our nearly two decades of business, we've had the pleasure of helping shippers scale their logisticsÂ departments and their business while maintaining overall freight expenditures and resources. We specialize in shippers who have multiple locations as we give control and compliance to these new locations without any additional costs. We simply give your new location a username and login and they are ready to start shipping immediately with the confidence of effective freight management.
At Cerasis our focus is on freight management efficiency. There is no better way to increase a business's efficiency than deploying solutions-based technology. Our innovation started all the way back when we started the company in 1997 when we chose to make our transportation management system, the Cerasis Rater, web-based and made the decision to keep our technology team in-house. We've continued that tradition of innovation by investing in the development of our technology solutions to continue to drive value and efficiency for our shippers.
With Cerasis, we not only give you the tools through our freight management and transportation technology, but we also give you managed transportation services included at no charge. There is noÂ need to hire an outside freight auditing company to audit your freight invoices when you are a Cerasis shipper. Every freight invoice produced at Cerasis is audited automatically with our TMS and then manually by your dedicated Freight Management Customer Service Rep. We work with CarriersÂ and correct variances found whileÂ proactively educating all parties to decrease errors in the future.
How much does it cost for you to LOSE a customer through improper freight management? Cerasis provides many tools to keep your customers happy even beyond the ease of use of our system to efficiently ship and manage freight. Our tools keep you and your customer in the know through such features as freight tracking, auto pick-up through EDI with carriers, giving you a choice to choose the proper limit of liability to protect your freight, and freight accounting so invoices are accessible, audited, and paid on time.
Is your accounting team tired of dealing with hundreds or thousands of different freight invoices per week from multiple carriers? Give your accounting team some help when it comes to freight invoice management when you are a Cerasis shipper. Cerasis consolidates all of your weekly freight invoicesÂ into one freight invoice and provides 24/7 online access in the Cerasis Rater invoices online center to every invoice. Furthermore, because you know the freight cost immediately, and know it will be accurate, you can bill your customer immediately and have better cash flow.
