Artificial Intelligence and Mobile Capabilities Support The Tai Shipping Marketplace
Teknowlogi is the pioneer of the Logistics Expert System (LES) and creator of Tai. Tai is the industry’s only cloud-based solution built on artificial intelligence (AI). We introduced the Tai Shipping Marketplace. This is a new tool in its technology platform that connects buyers and sellers of shipping rates. We made the announcement at the NASSTRAC Conference and Transportation Expo in Orlando.
“There are two basic, yet big, overarching industry problems. One is that everybody who spends money on shipping is always looking for a better rate. And the other is that anybody who’s making money on shipping is always looking to continue that. They are also looking to expand their customers to grow their business. The Amazon effect with its free-shipping component continues to create challenges for shippers. Teknowlogi has the platform to help shipment transactions between buyers and sellers. That then helps the industry overcome some of these business challenges.”
– Spencer Askew, founder and CEO of Teknowlogi
What is Tai Shipping Marketplace?
The Tai Shipping Marketplace is an online, self-service tool. Also, we deliver it through the Teknowlogi platform. It connects buyers of shipping rates with sellers of shipping rates. The former are looking to save money. The latter are looking to make money. Also, this takes place across North America. Shippers will also have access to Tai’s artificial intelligence capabilities. This is part of the Marketplace. For example, Tai will serve as an “advisor” to shippers. It will tell them what carriers could save. It will tell them how to improve service. In particular, if the shipper needs one-day transit time. That compares to two or three days to deliver products to customers.
“Companies no longer have to think through all the different solutions. Also, they don’t have to parse through their data. Especially with all the available trucking companies and carriers. Tai will be in the background doing the heavy lifting for our Marketplace users,” said Askew. “A lot of research points to the positive impact artificial intelligence will have. Also, that includes the logistics industry. There is still a good amount of confusion about how it will work. The Tai Shipping Marketplace allows us to deliver a solution for business challenges. We do this while giving shippers first-hand experience into how Tai can work on their behalf.”
Registration to access the Tai Shipping Marketplace is free. Transactional fees charge to companies every time you book a shipment. Also, the Tai Marketplace is already one of the logistics industry’s fastest-growing marketplaces. It has more than 3,000 organizations already participating. It has also amassed more than 55 million transaction requests.
