Excellent resource for cost and transit time from a wide variety of carriers of your choice, greatly reduces the need for telephone quotes, pickup requests are put in automatically and email acknowledged, freight quote numbers are assigned, easy to train new employees for shipping quotes, useful tool when examining costs for LTL, versus Volume and Truckload, Customer Support is quick, usually within a couple hours if not sooner. Historical information is available if questions arise.
The thing I liked the least about this product is that this survey will not allow me to finish without typing something I don't like.

We have been able to narrow down our freight choices, allowing us to build freight discounts with the nation's leading carriers, allowing us to create established and trustworthy business connections with freight representatives (including drivers) and our end customers. The program is very easy to use, allowing a new user to learn quickly and furthermore learn more about freight pricing expectations and timing of shipments.
Ease of use: create a BOL in minutes, nationwide service, line up a carrier same day (some within an hour), speediness of connections with carriers, communication availability with customer service.
Unable to send emails to carrier rep through the website

As a large formwork company that ships out 11 or more trucks per day, we would be lost without it. It is easy to use, manages a lot of information and critical to our delivery process.
It captures a lot of information that you can easily access in one place. Very helpful when managing multiple loads. Being able to duplicate previous load requests is a big advantage.
If a load is put in by mistake, there is no way to cancel it before bids are taken. you have to adjust the time the bid expires and then put note to "NOT BID" .. can be confusing.

Top 3 things we like about URoute are: 1) Flexibility to customize to needs- more than once we have scoped a development request and they always deliver on time and in budget 2)reporting and data- plenty of it to play with, and 3) invoice module has made the process of managing AP and reconciliations much easier!
We wouldn't call it a con, but the only way it could get better would be to get more carriers using it so we can grow our network

The overall experience is pleasing. The only suggestions I would make are below.
I would like to message members by clicking their name to reference the load # before and after the load is tendered to a carrier.
I would like to be able to download a PDF of the BOL.
The help option for our customers to contact u route when registering.
Not being able to save a PDF of the BOL so that it can be sent to our customers more easily.
