The LoadExpress Freight Marketplace enables 3PLs, freight brokers, shippers and carriers to move and manage
freight in one SaaS-based Transportation Execution Platform. Instead of individual entities conducting business
with their own network and relationships, LoadExpress aggregates load availability and truck capacity into one
open network that benefits all parties. 3PLs and brokers get the load availability and capacity they cannot get on
their own, increasing their load coverage, revenues and customer satisfaction. They also save money, reduce
operational cost and increase productivity by using one integrated system instead of paying for multiple loadboards
and using a costly/bloated TMS or no management tool at all. Shippers benefit by having multiple brokers and
carriers bidding for shipments, thereby reducing cost and increasing coverage. Carriers make more money by
getting business from the whole network instead of just from the brokers they already know, or go direct to the
shipper. It’s all about scale.
