Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

PostBidShip is a collaboration marketplace platform that shippers, carriers, brokers and 3PLs use to move freight. PostBidShip replaces outdated manual processes with quick, cost-effective, secure, and efficient collaboration. We wrap company, pricing, and market intelligence information around every load handle, increasing the speed, quality, reliability and actionability of your shipping information.

No. PostBidShip is not a freight broker. We are a neutral party in this industry. Our main goal is to make shippers' and transportation providers' lives easier by connecting them through a digital freight matching marketplace for more efficient and simplified covering of freight loads.  Becoming a broker would mean we would not only be directly competing with carriers and brokers on the platform but also keeping our interests aligned with those of the shippers and capacity providers using the PostBidShip platform.

As a shipper, you benefit from using PostBidShip by saving money on transportation spend. You also benefit in saving time by automating load coverage processes that may currently be manual or labor-intensive such as emails, phone calls and spreadsheets. You also benefit by access to a much larger pool of vetted transportation providers to extend your network of trusted carrier partners.  For more information, visit the Shippers Page

Transportation providers submit quotes and you award the load to the desired carrier.
