The long-awaited FreightWaves F3 Future of Freight Festival 2021 has come and gone. It was a fantastic event, and CarrierDirect is proud to have been a National Sponsor!

10:05 AM CT / 11:05 AM ET

Catch our Rapid Fire Demo of Lattis Link presented with Transportation Insight

- On the F3 Virtual Main Stage

Catch our presentation during Block 1 of Rapid Fire Demos on Tuesday, Nov 9.

In this demo, we follow the lifecycle of a Parcel in the Lattis Link system. Lattis is a network of first, middle, and final mile carriers and consolidation points that can operationally move a parcel from Shipper to Recipient anywhere in the U.S. Lattis Link is also a single set of APIs that makes accessing that capacity simple and easy. Lastly Lattis is a fully managed service with end-to-end visibility, integrating all relevant updates into a unified platform so that the end customer’s shipping experience is that or better than they would get when compared to a national carrier.
