It is the process of using freight load boards to connect shippers with freight carriers.
How Does Freight Matching Work?
Ideally, a shipper can log in to a load board, input all their freight information, and then compare the different services provided by various carriers. They can take some time to analyze and compare the carrier, route, and route from the various options provided. Similarly, a carrier might be searching for specific freight to fill their trucks' empty spaces avoiding empty and unprofitable transit. It is, therefore, valid to say that freight matching is beneficial to the shipper just as it is for the trucker. There are numerous truckload boards available online. All the same, new, smaller, and medium-sized trucking companies rarely use these platforms as large companies prefer regular, large trucking partners with years of experience in the trucking industry.
In this digital era, most freight matching platforms integrate with the Transportation Management System (TMS). TMS is a ground-breaking digital platform handling all of the shipper's essential needs. Once you upload your freight details, you can analyze the available options, manage all paperwork and documentation, and review tracking information at one centralized point.
Benefits of Freight Matching
Reduced Empty Miles:
Empty miles are highly unprofitable. By filling the trucks' empty spaces, empty rides are eliminated, enhancing profitability.
Reduce Time Wastage:
The truck driver will no longer have to sit idle waiting for cargo to fill up the empty truck spaces. Besides, a strong shipping network reduces loading, securing, clearance, and offloading congestions at the warehouses and transportation hubs.
