- What’s the difference between LTL and FTL?
Typically LTL (Less Than Truckload) shipments range from 150-10,000 lbs. taking up no more than 10-12 linear feet of deck space, while FTL (Full Truckload) shipments can scale significantly more weight and will usually take up most, if not all, of the deck space of a standard trailer
.(53 feet, 45,000 lbs).
Define the marketplace and how it's different from other companies who say they have a "marketplace" (think what makes it great).
The Emerge Marketplace is a way for shippers to interact with carrier & broker vendors that they've never had access to before. Not only do we introduce the shipper to these new partners, but we streamline the onboarding, insurance, and communication that currently happens every day. We're excited to partner with other companies who have similar technology or marketplace visions, which really differentiates us from anyone in the industry.

Why did we build it?/How is it impacting the way customers do business?
A freight marketplace is typically a cloud-based platform designed to allow shippers, freight managers and/or logistics professionals to access carrier direct rates. A freight marketplace may also aide in introducing shippers to new carriers outside of their current network, helping to make sure they always have numerous options to cover their loads.
We’re all too familiar with the day-to-day struggles of working in the freight and logistics industry. Check an email, make a call, search online for the best rates, the list goes on.
