Launched last month at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas was a new automated freight-matching system, RediTruck, in which shippers and brokers post loads to the portal, owner-operators and carriers post their available capacity and the system automatically matches loads to carriers.
RediTruck founder Jackie Franks was a truck operator for more than 30 years, ten of which were spent as an owner-operator and small fleet owner.
RediTruck is free for carriers. Shippers and brokers are charged a transaction fee. Franks says the system not only matches loads with available trucks, but it also can handle all of the paperwork associated with a freight transaction, including bids and bills of lading. The system’s also synced with factoring services like Truckstop.com’s LoadPay and Love’s Travel Stops in-store factoring services. The system also includes built-in truck-specific routing, allowing shippers and brokers to watch their loads in real-time.
When owner-operators are matched with a load, either based on geography or open capacity, they have the option to accept a shippers bid or deny it. They can also negotiate within the app with the shipper.
RediTruck is completely cloud-based and is platform agnostics, meaning it can work across all devices and all operating systems.
Franks says LandStar has already agreed to use the system for 100,000 loads.
