Benchmarking

Benchmark

SONAR Supply Chain Intelligence (SCI) is a tool used by shippers to benchmark their truckload spend and tender acceptance against the market on a lane level. SCI automatically identifies cost savings opportunities to help shippers get the service they’re paying for. It helps users optimize and prioritize spend in order to achieve the best service levels and value from their transportation spend.

Market Dashboard/Market Dashboard+ is a multi-lane analysis tool designed to empower bid management, benchmarking, frequent-lane monitoring and corridor trend visualization. Market Dashboard+ builds off the original Market Dashboard tool which is powered by the Trusted Rate Assessment Consortium (TRAC), which focuses on spot rate data in a single lane. 

SONAR users can visualize dozens of key data points as charts or put it all in a watchlist and compare themselves to the market leaders. Cohort-specific comparisons are made easier with different qualifiers and categories that can be selected by the user.

With SONAR’s freight benchmarking tools, users can always keep track of how their rates and service levels compare against the industry.
