The transportation industry is one that’s known for being notoriously tech-resistant, but the past several years have seen that change. There’s a veritable tech boom happening in the industry now, and nearly every brokerage uses tech heavily in their daily operations now.
However, there’s one tool that many companies are still missing out on: capacity management. Experienced brokers have managed to get along okay without a capacity management program, but as the industry evolves, this piece of technology is becoming a must-have to keep up with the competition.
Here are some of the benefits of capacity management that make it a tool every brokerage should be considering.
San Francisco, CA — August 9, 2022 — Parade, the leader in capacity management software for freight brokers, announces its partnership with Truckbase, the first automated dispatching software powering a network of over 5,000 long haul trucks.
