Breakthrough Launches Capac-ID - an Actionable Linehaul Rate Benchmarking Solution

August 26, 2021


Breakthrough, a strategic transportation solutions provider, released Capac-ID, a new linehaul rate benchmarking and carrier search module in its FELIX platform. This module provides a unique combination of rate guidance and carrier sourcing that helps shippers and their transportation networks keep pace with a rapidly evolving market.

Unlike traditional benchmarking services that use static, outdated data, Capac-ID data is updated in real-time, arming shippers with accurate, complete, and relevant information to inform their transportation strategies.

“Capac-ID data unlocks better visibility into what shippers are paying across their networks - not just via load boards,” said Heather Mueller, chief marketing and product officer at Breakthrough. “With a holistic market view, our comprehensive dataset identifies fair-market linehaul rates that are sustainable over time.”

Beyond more accurate benchmarks, Capac-ID also provides shippers the ability to search for best-fit carriers for their network. Shippers set custom design levers that inform their matches which are extracted from an entire ecosystem of shipper and carrier network data in the FELIX platform. “Capac-ID goes a step further than traditional benchmarking services and provides shippers a way to take action using the benchmark data,” said Mueller.

Capac-ID is one of several modules available through Breakthrough’s intelligent transportation management platform, FELIX. FELIX aligns crucial shipper and carrier data across freight, energy, and sustainability into one convenient portal, so that the right, trustworthy data is made conveniently available across transportation operations teams.
