Today, we’re shining our spotlight on our partner, McLeod Software. McLeod is one of the biggest names out there when it comes to logistics software, with some of the most well-known companies in the industry turning to the company for their technology needs.

It’s no secret that no two freight brokerages operate in precisely the same way. Based on that, doesn’t it make sense that their software shouldn’t be exactly the same either? After Pandemic-induced supply chain challenges that required companies to pivot quickly (in many brokerage’s case, to find a way to take on more freight volume to capitalize on the booming freight market), it’s easy to make a case for more configurable solutions in freight tech.

Proactively improve your relations with carriers with the help of capacity management.
Lack of trucking capacity due to market fluctuations has been an ongoing issue facing freight brokerages for years now, and the pandemic only exacerbated the issue. High freight rates and equipment shortages have led to brokers looking for new ways to secure the right capacity. Many have turned to prioritizing carrier relationships, but if that were easy everyone would already be doing it. Thankfully, capacity management solutions like Parade can help.
Here at Parade, we work with some of the largest, most successful freight brokerages in the US to bring them the power of capacity management. We’re not just intended to help large brokerages, though. Parade is a great solution for mid-size freight brokers, as well. Here are just some of the ways Parade supports mid-sized freight brokers, helping them find success and grow their businesses.
