Every few years I like to take a look at some of the new technology-based entrants to the freight transportation industry to see who are the “movers” and “shakers.” While Amazon dominates the headlines, there are a host of other companies doing some very interesting things in the technology space.

This blog will look at some names that surfaced in the past and some of the new players that are taking freight brokerage to a new level. While new technology is being applied to a variety of freight related tasks (i.e. calculating freight dimensions, dock appointment scheduling), this blog will examine some of the companies are actually in the business of moving freight. They are bridging the asset world with the technology world. I have selected a group of companies that have caught my attention. They are Cargomatic, uShip, Freightera, Freightquote, FreightCentre, Uship, Project44, Logistical Labs and ZRATE.

Two weeks ago I wrote about two exciting young companies (PostBidShip and Buytruckload.com) that are applying Innovation and Technology to the automated freight brokerage/freight portal space (http://www.dantranscon.com/index.php/blog/entry/innovation-and-technology-come-to-the-freight-brokerage-industry).  Subsequent to that blog, I was made aware of two more interesting companies that have entered this space, QuoteMyTruckload.com and Freightopolis.  I contacted each of these companies to learn more about their operations. 

QuoteMyTruckload.com

QuoteMyTruckload.com (www.QuoteMyTruckload.com) is one of the portfolio of services offered by InMotion Global Inc., an Interstate Logistics Group Company based in Saint Petersburg, Florida.  The company began as freight broker.  QuoteMyTruckload.com is the truckload quoting and rating module available through their InMotion Global TMS® (www.TheFreeTMS.com) transportation management software solution that is targeted at large shippers moving heavy volumes of freight.  It utilizes the same patented truckload quoting technology.
