Making massive growth plans a near-Term reality
A start-up freight broker had big goals for growth. To achieve this, they needed freight broker software that could execute across all modes of transportation and manage all service types. And it had to be able to do this with speed and reliability. At the same time, the freight broker wanted to offer lucrative optimization and freight audit capabilities.
