First Fully-Automated Freight Broker buytruckload.com Welcomes Shippers of All Sizes
buytruckload.com has opened the first fully automated freight brokerage, beginning an era of lower cost freight for US shippers.
buytruckload.com has no sales force and provides instant rate quotes that can be ordered without any delay or haggling. The automated pricing model ‘learns’ a bit more every day, which enables buytruckload.com to continuously improve the prices that are offered to shippers. Shippers can book van, flatbed, and refrigerated loads with partial truckload options available for van and refrigerated shipments. buytruckload.com also supports and automatically prices more complicated requirements such as multi-stop loads, team-transit requirements, various accessorials and more.
Co-owners Sean Devine and John Labrie spent the last 18 months with their team refining the pricing and operations model that powers buytruckload.com. After booking and covering over 10,000 truckloads for wholesale customers using these techniques, they decided to open buytruckload.com so that all shippers could benefit. buytruckload.com's costs are lower than other brokers, and those savings are passed directly along to shippers through surprisingly low prices.
“Automated freight brokerage allows shippers to save an average of $100 on a typical load that costs $1,300", said John Labrie. “This savings is a big benefit for the shipper, and a big deal to industry in general. We believe there is a $3 Billion aggregate savings opportunity for the US industrial economy as automated brokerage becomes more common.”
buytruckload.com also offers a carrier search, a procurement assessment survey, and a number of transportation based cartoons, all available for free to anyone that registers on the site.
buytruckload.com is based in Chicago, IL and was founded by transportation executives with extensive experience in freight operations, procurement strategy, and analytics. Their fully automated freight brokerage allows shippers to save without sacrificing quality or hurting carriers because there is no sales force adding to their markup. Approximately 4,000 carriers currently provide pricing and more are added every day. In addition to freight brokerage, buytruckload.com offers a detailed carrier search, procurement assessment survey, and transportation themed cartoons, all available for free.
