What is a Freight Marketplace?

Posted by The Emerge Editorial Staff on Oct 2, 2018 6:34:04 PM

Freight Marketplace

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. 

Shippers can use a freight marketplace platform to easily compare freight and shipping rates as well as communicate in real-time with multiple vendors all from one screen. This provides a much more streamlined and organized experience for logistics professionals who dislike the disorganization and time-loss of managing shipments through multiple email chains, phone calls and spreadsheets.
