White Paper: Why Carriers Need a Digital Freight Matching Platform
Transportation, specifically over-the-road (OTR) trucking, is one of the most significant industries in North America today in both size and importance. The benefit for OTR carriers to improvements to both revenues and costs by adopting emerging best practices yields disproportionate improvements to the business.
The purpose of this white paper is to explain why business-to-business carriers today benefit from access to a neutral digital freight matching (DFM) platform to best use their available capacity, resources and equipment. The white paper also reinforces that transitioning to a DFM platform is one of the simplest and quickest payback initiatives any small, midsized or large carrier can complete in a matter of days to immediately realize the benefits. DFM aims to leverage emerging technology to efficiently match Shipper demand (the need to move a product) with Carrier supply (truck capacity) via a digital (web and/or mobile) platform.
