Our newest rating engine is our web services API. This service allows you to incorporate our freight rating functionality directly into whatever applications you are running. You can access any of our MARS tariffs as well as any of the private individual carrier, shipper and 3PL tariffs in our tariff library.
The Accu-Rate DLL Rating Engine is an Windows ActiveX DLL that your new or existing applications can call to get the charges for a shipment. It allows you to focus your attention on the details of your own operation and not get bogged down in all of the idiosyncricies of tariff rating. And your software will run much more effeciently when the rating functions are handled locally instead of through a link to another machine. Written in Visual Basic, the DLL can be easily called by your own VB or VBA applications, as well as applications written in C.
Middlewest maintains a vast library of computer data for every private rate structure we create, as well as many of the other popular private carrier data. We also have data for almost every bureau tariff ever published spanning many years.
Middlewest provides customized rating systems for PC and we are sure to have the perfect solution for your rating needs. Our customized Windows rating systems provide just about every asked-for feature available.
Our up to date LTL rate base designed and created by us to provide a modern and fair pricing level of rates that are absent of hidden adjustments that are typically found in many private rate scales. MARS rates are a great choice for shippers and 3PLs to use as a base for negotiations. MARS 500 rates apply between all ZIP Codes within the continental U.S. and MARS 510 rates apply between the continental U.S. and Canada. They are available in desktop pc rating systems, via on-line rating access, or through one of our rating engines including our web services API.
One of the biggest challenges facing carriers, 3PL’s and shippers is making their rates available to their customers and other companies that may need them. One of the best ways to do this is with a custom rating API from Middlewest. An API (Application Programming Interface) is a computer program that can communicate with other applications regardless of their software platform, coding language or operating system. So if a company’s rates are available through an API, any other company that needs access to those rates can do so simply by sending an http request to the API.
Rate development, or sometimes known as tariff building, is the roots of our business. With more than 60 years experience, we have the required expertise to produce customized rate scales tailored to your operation.
For companies needing a centralized Web-based rating system, we offer our Web rater. It is ideally suited for carriers and logistics firms wishing to have their rates available to customers over the Internet. It is also well suited for use on a corporate Intranet.
