By: InMotion Global
NextLOAD, a product of Fort Worth-based Apex Capital Corp, joins industry mainstays Truckstop.com, DAT, PostEverywhere, Trucker Path, and 123Loadboard to give brokers, 3PL's and shippers more capacity options. They can now post their loads to additional groups of carriers who want quality freight to move, all inside the AscendTMS premium system.
Tim Higham, president and CEO of InMotion Global, Inc. said, "Finding quality available carriers is job number one for brokers, 3PL's and shippers. So, NextLOAD has been welcomed by the AscendTMS community and industry verterans. NextLOAD provides AscendTMS premium users with another great source of new capacity when available loads are posted from AscendTMS. The best part is that NextLOAD is totally free for both those posting loads and for those seeking loads."
Since launching in 2014, the NextLOAD team worked diligently to offer carriers, brokers, and shippers user-friendly functionality such as available load alerts, customized searches, credit checks, a fuel finder, unlimited users, fast refresh, and mobile optimization. NextLOAD users can search for equipment types, back hauls, or create a schedule to plan their loads ahead of time with thousands of loads posted daily.
Neal Huffman, NextLOAD's product manager, has been watching Ascend for several years and appreciates its open architecture and ease of use for brokers and carriers. "With NextLOAD's goal of increasing direct posted loads from brokers, it only made sense to partner with Ascend and offer a free load board for their brokers to post loads."
Higham continued, "AscendTMS is a transportation management system that connects to all proven industry standard tools and services that brokers, shippers and carriers need each day to run their business operations profitably and efficiently. We'll continue to add more requested industry services as demanded by our AscendTMS users."
