Austin-based startup Overhaul has released a mobile app and online marketplace designed for the unique requirements of enterprise shipping.
Overhaul has signed two Fortune 50 shippers of high-value cargo to use its online marketplace web-based portal and managed logistics services to transport their cargo. Enterprise shippers may not use online marketplaces because of the sensitivity of cargo and the lack of visibility and security, according to Overhaul.
“We have cracked the code that allows high-value shippers to play in the online arena,” said Barry Conlon, Overhaul CEO. “Overhaul has identified the gaps in premium transport and created a custom made technology solution that manages the known risks in the movement of high-value or time sensitive cargo.”
For drivers and owner operators, they can take advantage of free features available within the Overhaul mobile app including route planning, locating points of interest along the haul and more. The app is available for download on both iOS and Android.
The application also features a loadboard and shipment management tool which allows Overhaul-certified owner operators and drivers to manage all shipments on the go from contract set up to tracking the status of each shipment, and following Overhaul’s shipment milestones to earn more along the haul. With Overhaul, owner operators can receive fast payments to help improve cash flow and eliminate their need to factor. They will also have access to the online marketplace and other business tools.
The marketplace is actively accepting loads and Overhaul offers a 24/7 concierge team to support drivers and shippers as they onboard or search for capacity.
