Relay Payments expands digital network, empowering brokers to automate freight payments and improve cash flow

PR Newswire | October 19, 2023

Relay Payments, the fintech company modernizing payments for the logistics and trucking industries, is unveiling its freight payments solution for brokers: RelayDirect. The new solution lets brokers automate their carrier and factor payments, offer flexible payment terms, improve cash flow, and reduce administrative burdens. Initial customers have already increased revenue and reduced operational inefficiencies by moving their carrier settlement process to RelayDirect. "Prior to RelayDirect, the payment process for our carriers and factors was dated and outgrown due to our rapid growth, and had become a cumbersome and time-intensive process for our accounting team," said TransLoop CEO Nicholas Reasoner. "By automating our payment workflow, we now have greater transparency over projected cash flow and improved our carrier experience, which enhances our customer service and leads to repeat business." To date, RelayDirect customers represent more than $1.5 billion dollars in annual freight payments. Brokers integrate RelayDirect into their existing workflow, allowing them to offer flexible payment terms, generate additional revenue streams, and streamline their payments to existing factoring companies. Carriers also benefit from instant payments and the ability to immediately use those payments within Relay's network. "Moving money in the trucking industry has always been unnecessarily complicated," said Relay co-founder and CEO Ryan Droege. "Brokers are paying carriers billions of dollars each year, and RelayDirect modernizes these transactions. Brokers can better manage their cash flow while carriers receive payments instantly and securely. It's a win-win." Relay first introduced its fast, secure digital payment solution in 2019 to eliminate long delays that forced drivers to wait hours for payment approvals and authorizations. Fleets eagerly adopted the industry-leading platform, gaining increases to hours of service as well as efficiencies throughout the supply chain. Relay's payment network has continued to expand rapidly, allowing fleets nationwide to make fast and secure over-the-road payments including diesel fuel and unloading fees. Relay is now trusted by more than 300,000 drivers, 90,000 carriers, and 1,500 truckstops across the US. About Relay Payments Relay Payments is building a modern digital payment network to revolutionize the trucking and logistics industries. Trusted by more than 300,000 drivers, 90,000 carriers and 1,500 truckstops nationwide, Relay has brought efficiency and automation to an industry historically reliant on cash, checks and cards. Relay has joined forces with industry leaders like Pilot Company, AMBEST, J.B. Hunt, Schneider, Coyote Logistics, Lineage Logistics, and others to provide secure, reliable over-the-road transactions.

Overhaul Announces Shipment Connect App to Optimize Logistics Operations

PR Newswire | October 25, 2023

Overhaul, a software-based supply chain visibility, risk, compliance, and insurance solution for the world's leading brands, has announced Shipment Connect, an application that offers customers unmatched visibility into logistics operations processes. Tracking cargo from end to end has become increasingly difficult due to gaps in data, dated processes for managing shipments, and incorrect shipment information. Shipment Connect allows customers to instantly create and track digital shipments, connect internet of things (IoT) devices to cargo, and eliminate paperwork without costly integrations. The app, now available on the App Store and Google Play, empowers supply chain professionals to efficiently capture real-time shipment data and scale their logistics operations. "In this peak season, Shipment Connect is a vital tool for retailers and manufacturers improving data quality and streamlining operations. It provides a transparent view of shipment creation and departure times," said Karin Stevens, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Overhaul. "Shipment Connect's user-friendly, low-code and no-code options facilitate rapid set up of new customer sites or lanes for fast time-to-value, filling the gaps when ERP or TMS integrations face tight timelines." Shipment Connect empowers key supply chain roles to work smarter, faster, and more efficiently. Warehouse managers can digitally orchestrate shipments on-the-fly without paperwork slowdowns. Quality assurance personnel gain photo verification of proper loading for end-to-end quality control. Security staff benefit from cargo status visibility, SOP confirmations, and data to aid in recovery. Overhaul considers theft a failure and its applications like Shipment Connect that help to maintain a 99.9% risk prevention rate on all shipments moving through Overhaul's platform, arriving at destinations without incident. When thefts do occur, the data is at the recovery team's fingertips to take action and quickly recover cargo. Early adopters have seen tremendous results with Shipment Connect. One logistics company used the application to roll out 40 sites across the U.S. within two weeks. A tech giant also used Shipment Connect to expand, opening 23 sites across four countries within a month, giving visibility and driving security compliance for thousands of shipments. Customers' feedback and involvement in usability testing has consistently guided app improvements, leading to new features and functionality based on their input. For IT and operations, Shipment Connect means no more waiting on integrations with multiple systems when standing up new sites. The app's flexibility means customers can instantly configure workflows from site to site across their supply chain. Shipment Connect fills gaps in visibility so customers can better manage logistics workflows, easily connect systems, verify protocols, and secure cargo.
