BY integrating directly with BluJay’s Transportation Management via API, shippers can instantly access Uber Freight’s real-time pricing and tendering capabilities, with reliable capacity.

“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.”

With Uber Freight’s transparent marketplace, BluJay’s 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.

Uber Freight integrates directly with the BluJay platform to power instant quotes, booking, and carrier matching. The integration allows businesses that use BluJay’s Transportation Management application in North America and soon, Europe, to tap into Uber Freight’s pricing insights and vast network of over 50,000 carriers. The API-based integration can be turned on within hours for shippers, allowing for fast access to end-to-end supply chain visibility.

Among the first customers to benefit from this partnership are food manufacturers and packaging companies experiencing surges in volume as they provide essential products during the pandemic.

“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 at BluJay.

“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.”

More than $18bn in annualised freight moves through BluJay’s Transportation Management platform, with approximately $3bn managed on behalf of shippers by BluJay’s MTS team, also known as Logistics as a Service.
