A One-Stop Tool Shop for Brokers
How Freight Brokerages Run a Tight Ship
in a Competitive Industry
By Matthew Meeks
Supply Chain Technology & Safety have taken a front seat over the last year as the freight industry has continued to remind us just how vital its success is to keep our country running.
And a strong Supply Chain needs Brokers and 3PLs who can run a tight ship!
They also need brokers who are equipped with the right tools to keep operations running smooth…
Many software providers in the freight industry have recently increased their development of new technology solutions for Supply Chain businesses. New tech offerings aim to assist the fearless frontline freight professionals of America, with many solutions focusing on safety & efficiency so that Shippers, Brokers, and Carriers can all stay competitive and healthy in today’s fluctuating climate.
But with so many providers offering so many different solutions, it can sometimes feel incredibly time-consuming and daunting when looking to adopt them for your business.
For example: Some brokers get their back-office automation software from Provider A, and then pay for freight visibility services through Provider B…to then go through two additional providers to get a quality mobile app to communicate better with carriers and shipper partners…
It’s just…TOO MUCH.
However, one leading software provider in the freight industry took a major realization and ran with it. Freight solutions provider, Transflo, recognized there was an abundance of incredible new technology being created for the Supply Chain, but it was sporadic and unsystematic…This was making it challenging for businesses to acquire and implement all the tools they needed. So, Transflo set out on a new mission – to offer ALL OF IT – in one place – and without sacrificing quality.
…And that is when a state-of-the-art digital ecosystem was born.
