Enterprise Condition Management (ECM)

CargoSoft Enterprise Condition Management

retrieve and calculate freight rates quickly and securely.

The daily routine for freight forwarders and logistics specialists: data from service providers, on which the calculation of total costs is based, does not normally have a standardised format and is also extremely difficult to compare in other ways as well. Because of surcharges that are changing ever more frequently and the decreasing cycles within which conditions lose their validity, managing them becomes a necessary but costly burden within the company. Until now reliable calculation has therefore been difficult and associated with relatively high costs in time and effort.


CargoSoft Enterprise Condition Management makes reliable quote and contract structures easier for the logistics specialist on the basis of more transparent, simpler rate management. Standardised presentation aids faster decision making. At the heart of the application is the homogenisation of the often complex costs of logistics services and clear presentation of the data. With reference to clear and calculable data, rates and corridors can be compared to each other more easily and quotations prepared faster and more reliably with CargoSoft Enterprise Condition Management.

The software is easy to use and shows all current contracts and components of the freight rates. The system automatically gives information about contracts that are about to expire or rates and secondary conditions. In addition it offers extensive options for creating filtered reports – e.g. regarding rates and contracts per service provider or relations between origin and destination (places, countries and regions). This results in the costs, cost trends and the basis for calculations being compared transparently in the individual corridors. The selection of the preferred service provider is made easier, calculations are supported and the negotiating position strengthened with regard to the service providers. By allocating individual user rights to the contracts or rates functions all users involved in the process chain receive global access to the data relevant to them.
