The Value Of A Digital Freight Marketplaces Over Traditional Brokerages

Inefficiency and the freight industry have been inextricably linked for generations. Traditional brokers have long been unable to meet the modern business needs of shippers and carriers who are looking to scale their operations. The void created by traditional brokers is now being filled by digital players who are capable of solving unique and complex logistical problems quickly and efficiently.

Transfix is a leading digital freight marketplace connecting shippers to a national network of reliable carriers. Our cutting edge technology pairs shippers with trusted carriers while reducing empty miles, which, in turn, eliminates waste. Transfix doesn’t just move freight— our expert team aggregates and analyzes data from every single FTL shipment booked on our platform to help elevate and optimize the supply chain from start to finish.
Our platform and suite of tools were born of industry expertise and innovative tech. We automate transactions but not our interactions with customers. The vast majority of our transactions happen through automation, but there are always people supporting the account. That’s by design.

We elevate our technology by placing savvy industry veterans at the controls who can think creatively and critically under pressure.

Why Digital?
Digital platforms and networks provide value that far exceeds what was once offered by traditional brokers. Tasks that were once labor intensive and time-consuming, have been automated and streamlined across the board. Emails, faxes and phone calls have been replaced with machine-learning enabled software that can perfectly match shippers to carriers in the blink of an eye. Transfix’s proprietary algorithm, for example, accurately quotes thousands of loads in seconds, a technological breakthrough that saves both time and money. As more carriers and shippers join the network, a flywheel effect is created, which benefits both sides of the market. As more shippers join the network, more route options are provided to carriers, driving down empty miles, which limits volatility within the market. As more carriers join the network, capacity increases and shippers see lower costs and higher service quality. A stable supply chain ecosystem has the potential to lower shipping costs, while simultaneously increasing earnings for carriers.
