BENTONVILLE, ARK, SEP 6, 2023 -Software creator Imaginnovate today introduced an artificial intelligence tool that automates pricing for the transportation and logistics industry. Called the Dynamic Pricing Engine, the technology automates the pricing practices in an organization, driven by a blend of your historical buying and selling patterns, aggregated market data, and personalized pricing rules. Imaginnovate said its software could maximize revenue for freight brokers, transportation companies and final mile providers in a challenging market.
"The logistics industry faces numerous pressures such as volatile fuel prices, fluctuating demand, and increased competition," said Imaginnovate CEO Krishna Vattipalli. "These factors make it challenging for companies to accurately determine optimal pricing strategies, and that's where a dynamic pricing engine becomes useful."
Imaginnovate said its tool establishes a pricing range for logistics services based on variables such as demand, competition, lanes, equipment, and types of transportation. The price range becomes the basis for final contract negotiations
Artificial intelligence determines pricing, Imaginnovate explained, relying on external rate sources and historical pricing data. The company said its pricing engine is unique because it accounts for market variables. Those can include but are not limited to peak shipment days, delivery locations, holidays, accessorials, fuel surcharges. The flexibility and configuration capabilities of the Dynamic Pricing Engine allow it to work for any company in the industry.
"We are not the first to offer an automated pricing tool, but our unique offering will allow organizations of any size to configure it to their specific needs," said Mr. Vattipalli.
Imaginnovate said automated pricing gives logistics companies a competitive edge on competitors through:
Demand for freight services, warehousing and other logistics services has fluctuated dramatically in recent years, Imaginnovate pointed out. It said that finely tuned pricing is critical in maintaining market share and ensuring profitability.

"It enables them to set competitive and profitable prices that maximize revenue without sacrificing customer satisfaction."
