DALLAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--haulme today announced availability of a digital freight matching (DFM) solution that enables shippers to find and transact with quality truckers with unrivaled ease, speed, efficiency and transparency. The company’s new offering disrupts the way shippers and truckers have traditionally connected and conducted business together and modernizes the process, representing a major innovation in supply chain management.
“The transportation and logistics market is rapidly embracing technology to create efficiencies and that includes reducing and even eliminating manual processes in truck transportation”
haulme provides an online transportation marketplace that is an on-demand alternative to slow, manual methods widely used by shippers to find and secure reliable carrier capacity. These methods include tapping brokers, third-party logistics providers (3PLs) and load boards.
Now, with haulme, truckers can use an iOS or Android app on their mobile devices to report capacity, routes and travel dates. (Approximately 400 truck drivers have already downloaded the app.) Shippers input their freight requirements via a user-friendly web portal. The system automatically matches shippers with the right truckers.
Unlike other DFM products, haulme uses a proprietary pricing algorithm that immediately gives both parties market-competitive rates up front and directly in the software without anyone having to make a single phone call. Also, haulme uniquely features a “name your freight rate” option, allowing shippers to request a rate, which truckers can accept or decline.
“The transportation and logistics market is rapidly embracing technology to create efficiencies and that includes reducing and even eliminating manual processes in truck transportation,” said Andrew Kelley, President, haulme. “Our state-of-the-art software is designed to transform the way the industry operates and make life vastly easier for busy logistics professionals.”
haulme is geared toward small to medium shippers and highly qualified, insured truck owner operators and small fleets, an underrepresented segment within the transportation and logistics industry. The company’s core transportation markets are full truckload (TL), partial truckload (PTL), and heavy less-than-truckload (LTL) freight capacity for dry van, flatbed, auto haul, refrigerated, and tanker loads. Currently, haulme’s vertical focus is on the manufacturing, retail and chemical industries.
