KeepTruckin introduces Smart Load Board partnering with six largest brokers in the US
Story by: Vishnu Rajamanickam at FreightWaves
In a major integration, fleet management company KeepTruckin has announced its partnership with six of the largest brokers in the U.S., consisting of both premier digital brokers like Uber Freight and Convoy, along with incumbent legacy brokers like Echo Global Logistics and EPES Logistics.
KeepTruckin has also introduced its Smart Load Board — an intelligent freight-matching solution designed to help carriers have more visibility into loads on the platform and choosing the right ones fast.
“All brokers, ranging from traditional to digital, have the same two fundamental needs: access to capacity at scale and real-time visibility into the location of their freight. The Smart Load Board makes both of these possible,” said Shoaib Makani, co-founder and CEO of KeepTruckin.
KeepTruckin’s network of over 350,000 vehicles provides dense coverage across North America, giving brokers access to capacity at scale. By being a part of KeepTruckin’s ecosystem, brokers can tap into its network and have end-to-end visibility on product movement. This is also possible with carriers outside of KeepTruckin’s network, as the platform allows for data exchange beyond its ambit — as long as the carrier in question consents to data sharing.
“The KeepTruckin Smart Load Board is the first and only ELD-based freight marketplace that automatically matches loads based on a deep understanding of a carrier’s needs and preferences,” said Makani. “This product will revolutionize the way trucking companies dispatch their drivers, reducing empty miles and improving their bottom line as a result.”
By aggregating loads from large brokerages into the platform, KeepTruckin removes the need for drivers and dispatchers to have back-and-forth phone calls to determine pickup and dropoff times, rate, commodity and product specifications. With a comprehensive platform that looks at granular details on loads offered and carrier routes, KeepTruckin can convincingly match carriers to loads.
