The next-generation of freight optimisation
TGMatrix is an automated transport matching platform that brings together a community of shippers and carriers
How TGMatrix works for shippers
Set up your own general framework of requirements for carriers
Specify if you have specific partner preferences, and what you want the engine to prioritise when creating your carrier matches, such as lower prices, speed of delivery, carbon footprint, etc.
You send in your transport request
You can do this automatically via TMS, ERP, XLS or Web Portal. For each load, you can specify pick up time, locations, delivery time, price and special requirements. You also set your timeframe for finding a match.
Matches are made
The TGMatrix matching engine searches through thousands of variables in seconds to calculate a suggested itinerary and find the best possible carrier offer for you.
Contracts are sent
Once a full match has been found, an electronic contract is sent to both parties.
Get end to end visibility
Real time status updates provided by the Matrix smartphone app or carrier are forwarded immediately on receipt including POD data where applicable.

According to the report ‘Making urban freight logistics more sustainable’, freight traffic accounts for 10-15% of urban kilometres travelled. Which doesn’t sound excessive until you realise that it represents 300-400 freight vehicle trips, per 100 people per day in, out, through or within a city. Many of these spend much of their time blocking roads to unload perhaps just one or two roll cages.

The problem is simply stated. The European Commission reports that while road freight represents just 3% of vehicles, they account for 29% of road derived emissions. Consisting of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, but also pollutants such as oxides of nitrogen and particulates. Exhaust emissions aren’t the only issues either. Fuel spills, tyre ‘crumb’, accidents, noise & vibration, congestion, infrastructure degradation… It all has a real impact on the health and well-being of people and the environment. Whether at local, regional or higher level it still says nothing of future ‘climate change’.
