In the face of global uncertainty, businesses need reliable data points to make smart, fast decisions about their supply chains; execute changes in real time; and operate outside the limits of traditional routing guides. To give shippers more flexibility and control over their operations, we’re committed to expanding our array of direct API integrations with the transportation management systems they already rely on.
We’re proud to partner with Oracle to help shippers respond to the unique demands they’re facing in today’s rapidly evolving market. Shippers can now take advantage of Uber Freight’s 24/7 real-time pricing and tendering capabilities and instant, reliable capacity directly in Oracle Transportation Management Cloud through API. The ability to see and lock in rates up to 2 weeks in advance means reduced overhead costs, flexible operations, and delivery of consistent, world-class customer experiences with every load.
Many have already seen significant efficiencies by leveraging the integration. One large US multinational consumer products company now manages 30% of its freight through the Uber Freight API and has reduced total transportation costs by 5%.
“At Oracle, we’re enabling organizations to create more dynamic logistics operations so they can respond to industry, market, and route changes to meet customer needs and deliver on brand promises,” says Derek Gittoes, Vice President for Supply Chain Management Product strategy at Oracle. “With access to Uber Freight’s transparent pricing and capacity network, our shippers will be able to increase efficiency and flexibility of operations to move their goods with speed and confidence.”
