Main functions

Defining permissions

The shipper enables the carrier to request accessorial charges or surcharges and defines which types are allowed.


The carrier selects the applicable surcharge option from a list defined by the shipper, determines the amount and submits a request to the shipper.

Order management

Each surcharge is associated with a freight order, eliminating any need to manually review surcharges and freight assignments.

One-click decision

The shipper can accept or reject the carrier’s request with a single mouse click.

Repeat requests

The carrier may submit a rejected surcharge and request partial payment instead of payment in full.
