In today’s tight transportation market, finding carriers to cover loads has become increasingly difficult. Capacity constraints, labor shortages, rising shipping costs and growing shipping volumes are all expected to continue throughout 2022 (and possibly beyond), making traditional approaches to procurement insufficient. Addressing both short-term and long-term capacity needs requires a more modern and strategic approach. Digital freight matching platforms can help overcome these challenges by accessing untapped capacity and connecting carriers with freight.
Brian Work shared his thoughts with SupplyChainBrain on how digital freight matching platforms can help address this need by adding real, sizable capacity to a network and directly connecting carriers and drivers with freight.
