Now that you’ve recovered from the most unusual Thanksgiving ever (thanks, COVID), let’s get caught up. In our November blogs, we provided you with a list of the top 10 tools every 3PL and freight broker should be using to stay competitive. We also had some big partnership announcements, a blog featuring Henry Ford (sort of) and tips on why digital freight matching is the big story of 2020 for logistics and trucking. Without further ado, here they are: your November 2020 must-read Trucker Tools blogs.
Yes, we’re calling digital freight matching revolutionary. Hyperbole? We think not. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that adaptability is everything. Digital freight matching offers you a level of efficiency and resiliency that the old way of doing things just can’t match. Find out why this is the year for you to let digital freight matching solve your capacity challenges.
Who doesn’t love a top 10 list? In this one, we give you a list of the tools that freight brokers and 3PLs are using to reduce their costs and boost revenue. From TMSs and load tracking software to doc upload tools and predictive load matching, this list of technology-based tools has it all. Raise your hand if you’re ready to find out what tools will help you outpace your competitors.
If you’re using a patchwork of technologies with your carriers, consider using a single platform that provides a better experience for carriers instead. You can reduce check calls, find capacity faster, increase margins, offer better service to shippers, attract new customers and lower your cost per load all with one carrier-friendly platform: Trucker Tools. Sound too good to be true? It isn’t.
