Truckstop.com has announced that the company’s Book It Now feature for its freight matching marketplace is available as of Nov. 18, 2019.
The Book It Now feature allows freight brokers and 3PLs of any size to add instant load booking functionality to their business. Carriers will be able to see Book It Now loads from freight brokers they know on Truckstop Mobile.
The new feature will be available free, for a limited time, to freight brokers using Truckstop.com Load Board Pro. The feature is free for carriers and will appear on their Truckstop Mobile application.
“By leveraging our neutral freight matching marketplace, Book It Now gives freight brokers a way to cover their loads more efficiently with carriers they trust,” said Paris Cole, CEO of Truckstop.com.
Freight brokers decide the rate and allow their preferred carriers to instantly book loads, eliminating negotiations. For carriers, Book It Now allows them to instantly book loads with brokers they trust and receive an automated rate confirmation.
Once a carrier has been added to a broker’s preferred carrier list, they can see their Book It Now loads on Truckstop Mobile. Before booking the load, the carrier is able to see all the important information needed to make a decision such as: the rate, pickup and drop off information, broker information, and other pertinent details about the load.
