FetchDesk is a cloud-based freight posting solution designed to streamline communications between shippers, brokers and carriers.
The mobile friendly software allows shippers to identify and self-broker qualified, accredited trucks and gives carriers the ability to secure backhaul freight up to eight days in advance. Shippers, brokers and carriers pay a $70 annual subscription fee for access to the software using their computer or mobile device.
The software removes the shippers’ risk of revealing sensitive load information online by keeping trucking transportation requests confidential. FetchDesk also gives shippers and brokers the option to contact carriers directly to negotiate contract terms which can reduce costs, reduce deadhead mileage and simplify the booking process.
Only carriers that meet and follow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations are accredited and allowed to subscribe to ensure the safe and legal transportation of all freight. Shippers and brokers must credit qualify through FetchDesk in order to subscribe. FetchDesk also provides complete transparency and financial responsibility as called for by the most recent FMCSA congressional legislation, MAP 21.
The first 1,000 carriers and first 1,000 shippers/brokers to enroll for FetchDesk will receive a one-year, free subscription. FetchDesk is available for Mac and PC and can be used with iOS, Android, and Microsoft devices.
