Truckstop.com Announces Book It Now
- New feature allows freight brokers and 3PLs of any size to add instant load booking functionality to their business
- Carriers will be able to see Book It Now loads from freight brokers they know on Truckstop Mobile
Truckstop.com, the largest neutral freight matching marketplace in North America, announced that Book It Now will be available soon. The new feature will be available free for a limited time to freight brokers using Truckstop.com Load Board Pro. The feature is free for carriers and will appear on their Truckstop Mobile application.
Early feedback from the Book It Now pilot program indicates that brokers may save as many as 2-3 hours covering loads depending on market conditions and lanes. Freight brokers decide the rate and allow their preferred carriers to instantly book loads, eliminating negotiations. The time saved allows the broker to move more loads, grow their client lists, and increase their bottom line. For carriers, Book It Now allows them to instantly book loads with brokers they trust and receive an automated rate confirmation. By eliminating extra phone calls, carriers have more time to grow their business or spend more time with their family.
Once a carrier has been added to a broker’s preferred carrier list, they can see their Book It Now loads on Truckstop Mobile. Before booking the load, the carrier is able to see all the important information needed to make a decision such as: the rate, pickup and drop off information, broker information, and other pertinent details about the load. By working with trusted partners, Book It Now increases the quality and security of the freight marketplace.
