The freight transportation industry has at least one thing in common with virtually every sector: the importance of speed and flexibility. Sales come and go in the blink of an eye.
If it’s true that “time kills all deals,” as many say, then anything that prolongs the process of a deal should be avoided.
Setting Up a Carrier Takes Too Long
One of the most common challenges hindering healthy freight carrier relationships is the length of time it often takes to set up a carrier in a freight broker’s system. All of that back-office work is important, for sure, but it’s not what agents and drivers do best. It’s important that the initial set up go smoothly to ensure expectations are met and the relationship remains strong.
Freight transportation is perhaps as deeply beholden to time as any other industry out there. While time is of the essence, the painful truth is that carrier setup can take hours or even days to finish. By the time this marathon process is complete, the carrier may have already given up and moved on. Even if the carrier stuck it out, who knows whether that relationship has been ruined for future deals.
Reducing Carrier Setup to Six Minutes or Less
To avoid losing loads because of the unacceptably lengthy one-time carrier setup, freight agents are looking for solutions. Technology is one of the most natural aids.
