Post.Bid.Ship- Freight Matching, Optimized

Shippers across the world today face challenges like the truck driver shortage, rising freight costs, capacity crunches, and more. Digital freight matching helps to bridge this gap between the nation’s independent carriers and the companies that rely on them. In the past few years, digital freight matching platforms have emerged that have helped companies to take their goods from destination A to B efficiently.

Post.Bid.Ship is a neutral digital freight platform that replaces outdated workflows with quick, cost-effective and efficient matching of loads to transportation capacity in real-time, using near-time data analytics, market indices modeling and real-time digital collaboration, benefiting both parties through an optimal mix of cost, performance, convenience and asset utilization.
