Carriers and shippers have a need for better tools that will help them communicate with each other more effectively. A larger, more focused network is beneficial for both sides of the truckload business. With better communication over available loads, shippers can provide a better service for their clients and carriers can get more work for their trucks. Realizing a need for a more focused truck load resource, Truck Load Connect has launched a new website, http://www.truckloadconnect.com, which will act as a valuable notification system for shippers and carriers. Partnering with the Nashville web development and design company Horton Group, the new Truck Load Connect freight matching website includes several features that go above and beyond that of the traditional load board.
“There are a lot of options for online load boards,” stated Truck Load Connect Founder Rich Luzinski. “The goal of this new online tool is to build more leads for carriers by offering up a free location to post desired trucking lanes. All it takes is one post to the website and carriers will be on their way to connecting to shippers with loads matching their trucking lanes exceptionally well.”
Truck Load Connect also points out the added benefit is shared by shippers as well. Since membership is free for carriers, Truck Load Connect has created a centralized location where shippers can login to find high volumes of data over a wide range of carriers. This is an advanced network that goes beyond the traditional free truck load board. The new website cuts down on the time and work involved in managing shipping loads by sending notifications to carriers only when a load is posted that matches their posted lanes.
From the website homepage visitors can create an account for their designated member type: carrier, shipper or broker. The Truck Load Connect website has also integrated the ability to view loads graphically on a map feature. Shippers can give their loads an even more specific location on the map by adding zip codes. There is also a search function that allows carriers to search by lanes radius, such as within a 50 mile radius of their origin or a specified destination. Carrier members can also search by trailer type. These tools allow carriers to utilize the notification system for their usual lanes and use the search feature when operating outside their usual lanes. The service is free for carriers to encourage as many participants as possible in the process. Once the community of carriers reaches ideal levels, shippers will be able to post loads to the site for a low monthly subscription fee.
“The website has been designed to act as an easy, low cost resource for carriers and shippers who are looking for better tools to manage lanes and expedite freight,” said Luzinski. “Truck Load Connect is a modern load board solution built for single truck owner operators to smaller companies with anywhere up to a few hundred trucks. We want to make it simple for carriers and shippers to connect. In the end our goal is to help contribute to the overall growth and efficiency of the American trucking industry by offering a better service.”
