Breakthrough: Launches platform for transportation data management

February 19, 2020 – Breakthrough, a pioneer in the field of transportation energy and information management, created a new transportation data management platform, FELIX, that provides shippers with a single, streamlined system to secure and strengthen strategic relationships with transportation partners. FELIX (Freight, Energy, Load, Information and eXperience) is the first platform based on shippers’ demand for capacity and gives transportation teams the ability to optimize their capacity and rates using transparent data captured from the broader transportation ecosystem.

“FELIX was created for clients looking to challenge the status quo of traditional transportation strategies but who were lacking the resources necessary to effectively locate and interpret the powerful data of broader transportation networks around them,” said Doug Mueller, president and CEO of Breakthrough. “Through extensive collaboration with these clients, we developed a platform that increases the efficiency of transportation in total, giving shippers the ability to see what is happening in their network both day-to-day and over time.”

FELIX utilizes proprietary methodology for identifying contracted capacity solutions and providing rate guidance to shippers. The database powering the FELIX platform provides a comprehensive view of the North American transportation ecosystem, allowing decision-makers to develop sustainable, long-term plans for their contract freight while reducing the need for unplanned spot freight and ambiguous benchmarking.

Additional highlights of FELIX include increased access to fuel and freight forecasting, the ability to further understand carrier areas of operation, the power to recognize and offer market-based pricing to carriers, and The Recommender, an engine that captures transparent network information and turns it into suggested actions in a shipper’s network to drive efficiencies.
