Freightopolis is a free, online tool that gives you a tracking number for every shipment no matter which carrier you choose.
Montreal, Quebec (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
Freightopolis, a Montreal-based technology company, has created a cloud-based shipping platform that connects road-based carriers to customers directly. Freightopolis.com is a 100% real-time platform that consolidates online freight information entered by large and small TL and LTL freight carriers across Canadian and US transportation markets. Carriers and customers are matched based on a proprietary PATT ™ system-price, availability, and transit time. Jack Pollak, the founder and owner of Freightopolis, fathered the idea in 2010, and after more than two years of development, it was launched in the first quarter of 2013.
“No problem with bill of lading, proof of delivery, no problem with tracking, there was nothing to track, it’s all automatic.”

Freightopolis.com is a free freight management software created to make a difference. Freightopolis has set out to change the face of the transportation industry by replacing the costly and time consuming middle man, the freight broker by a user-friendly online platform. The system is designed to directly and immediately bring together customers and carriers.
It allows customers to instantly access real-time information entered by approved carriers. At the moment of booking, a tracking number is assigned to the freight which allows for 24/7 status updates and alerts. This service is designed to enable customers to be aware of the status of the shipment at any given time.
Carriers on the other hand, benefit from an efficient dispatch portal streamlined especially for the transport industry. Freightopolis maintains each partner carrier’s data on a cloud-based server. The Freightopolis software is accessible to carriers of all sizes, common carriers and carriers with at least five trucks alike; furthermore, Freightopolis guarantees payment for services rendered to carriers within 30 days of delivery.
For both customers and carriers involved, the system facilitates freight management by automatically generating, bills of lading, proof of delivery, and invoicing. Shipping information is stored in one database accessible by multiple users, so key people can instantly access the information they need.
