These features can save carriers a tremendous amount of time and help them reduce empty miles, and get the load matched quicker for our shippers.
Nixa, MO (PRWEB) April 21, 2014
BulkLoads.com, a load posting website for the dry and liquid bulk freight industry, added two new load search options to refine the way carriers search for loads, making finding loads quicker and more convenient. The release comes as the fast-growing load board reaches a record number of loads posted.
Load postings are reaching record highs online as shippers continue to overcome various challenges from this past winter from the heavy demand of rail freight to bad weather. BulkLoads.com is averaging 39,000 posted loads currently and it continues to climb. With the increased volume of available loads the website recognized a need for carriers to refine their searches.
“As our load postings continue to reach record levels it became apparent we had to enhance our search features to help both our carriers and shippers connect on the best freight option the first time,” said Jared Flinn, Operating Partner at BulkLoads.com. “It’s just as important now for carriers to see all loads going to a specific destination to get them a reload or even see all load-by-origin radius going to a specific destination radius. These features can save carriers a tremendous amount of time and help them reduce empty miles, and get the load matched quicker for our shippers.”
Carriers have always been able to search by defining a state, equipment or load origin. Now using enhanced features on BulkLoads.com carriers can also search by radius of an origin to destination, or simply by radius of a destination.
“With every change and need we see, or hear about from our members, we’ll do our best to meet that need with a smart solution,” Matt Fredin, Operating Partner said. “We believe in listening to our members and responding quickly and effectively.”
