Nearly 70 percent of the carriers in our DAT Network have 10 or less trucks and almost 50 percent of less than three.
PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) January 21, 2008
Thornton, Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) President Bob Voltmann, and Wayne Carucci, vice president, sales & operations for Gateway Distribution, will discus how owner-operators and small carriers can identify "quality brokers" and build mutually beneficial relationships with them. Additionally, the panel will address how the independent trucker and carrier operators can maximize TransCore's freight matching network.
"The success of both carriers and brokers depends on their ability to find good partners. Carriers can easily identify quality brokers by looking for the TIA logo next to the posted loads," said Voltmann.
He added, "TransCore makes it easy to identify TIA members on their freight matching system by identifying member loads with the TIA logo and they also allow users to sort loads by TIA members."
According to Thornton, TransCore is very focused on smaller carriers pointing out that, "Nearly 70 percent of the carriers in our DAT Network have 10 or less trucks and almost 50 percent of less than three."
TransCore recently revamped their owner-operator freight match platform, Truckersedge.net. Since its overhaul, Truckersedge.net has experienced 10 percent growth month-over-month. DAT Connect, TransCore's freight match system for smaller carriers and Truckersedge.net helped move over 40 million loads through the DAT network. TransCore has placed 1200 DAT load boards in truckstops and travel centers across the United States and Canada, to enable owner-operators quick, easy access to quality loads.
"We've worked extremely hard at making DAT the most reliable, secure trading network for our brokers and carriers. Our uptime ratings and the quality of loads and trucks posted is unparalleled in the industry," said Thornton.
