DFM Commentary:

Most of the technologies require digitalization of the old analog processes, transactions, and documents. Gathering data is the easy part of improved efficiency and decision making. Cleaning and structuring data consume the majority of time and effort. DFM Data’s duplicate load and carrier data purging solution can help freight brokerages and freight agents be much more efficient and customer responsive.
