The provider of the BigRoad smartphone-based logbook app and DashLink electronic logging device has launched BigRoad Freight, a load matching platform built within the BigRoad app. The freight platform gives owner-operators and fleets the ability to book loads while ensuring quick payment and providing hours-of-service (HOS) visibility.
Operators using the BigRoad app can sign up to participate in BigRoad Freight. Once registered, drivers are sent push notifications recommending loads to them based on GPS coordinates and available hours. They can view load details, including the payment terms, and choose to accept or reject loads from within the app.
BigRoad has built the on-demand freight-matching service in partnership with brokers, load boards, and digital freight platforms, bringing together loads in a simple package, the company says, improving speed and with a mind to bringing more transparency to shipper-carrier relations. By leveraging real-time location information tracked by the app as well as compliance availability data, shippers and carriers benefit, the company says, from improved schedule predictability and asset optimization. BigRoad notes it’s “committed to developing partnerships to grow the number of loads offered through the platform.”
All BigRoad app users, with or without the company’s DashLink ELD, can participate in BigRoad Freight, the company adds.
