Logistics services provider Power2Ship Inc., Boca Raton, Fla., announced enhancements to its online exchange for the truckload transportation industry.
The company’s online service, MobileMarket, identifies unused truckload capacity of member carriers and displays it to member shippers.
The Asset Management Tool allows member carriers to enter their transportation assets and prices directly into the Power2Ship application. Member shippers can view all member carrier trucks that are available for hire in their immediate vicinity.
According to Power2Ship, unused capacity is highest among the 240,000 U.S. carriers with fewer than 100 trucks that make up Power2Ship’s target market. To date, 460 carriers operating an estimated 20,000 tractors have become P2S member carriers. Member carriers that equip their trucks with the P2S vehicle locator and communications devices can improve cash flow by capturing electronic consignee signatures enabling Power2Ship to expedite payment to member carriers through Comdata’s ExpressCash service.
