BORN IN A WAREHOUSE
Unlike many other technology driven companies, FreightOn is not based in Silicon Valley. The concept saw light in a warehouse after many frustrating encounters in the freight industry.
Even since the late 1800s, the industry has been based on load boards, numerous phone calls and private side deals. It's time to bring the industry to the 21st century, and we are doing that at FreightOn by offering the following:
EMPOWERING AMERICA'S BACKBONE
Today there are over 3.5 million drivers daily on the roads in the United States alone. Carriers move 12 trillion Dollars worth of merchandise, equating to 3 times the US federal budget for an entire year.
It is our goal to ensure drivers are paid quickly and fairly with no pay cuts, compensated for detention, cancellation, and delays. We also want to make sure that no truck travels a mile empty. We know it is a massive commitment, but we also believe that we are up for the task!
SAVING SHIPPING COSTS
Our studies indicate that only 65-80% of a load's tender is paid out to carriers moving the load. Brokers tend to overcharge when the market is at a high, and keep a higher percentage when it's at a low.
On average, shippers will notice a significant decrease of 15% in shipping costs when moving to FreightOn:
Transparent pricing - Never pay over the market rate
Public bidding (unlike phone calls) ensures that carriers compete for the load
Flat rate brokerage fee
Personal account manager verifying every aspect of the job before it even starts, and follows up until completion
Technology empowers our platform. People give it a face!
At FreightOn, we have a large team responsible for the daily operations and development of our platform. But there is a much larger team, who's job is to communicate with shippers and carriers, ensuring that every load is handled professionally and efficiently.
You can always reach your account manager by chat, email, SMS, or even a good old phone call.
