Bulknet.com has launched a website offering load-matching services for registered shippers and tank truck carriers in the chemical industry.
The site allows shippers and carriers to negotiate anonymously for each other's business through a neutral marketplace.
Registered shippers post data describing available loads, including their origins, destinations,
dates and the shipper's pricing for linehaul and tank washing. Registered carriers post a description of their equipment in any region and the equipment's time of availability.
Carriers may then choose to accept the market pricing offered by the shipper for line haul and tank washing, or they may bid the prices through Bulknet.com's secure e-commerce platform. Each transaction is monitored on a load-by-load basis through completion, with Bulknet.com handling all paperwork, billing and quality metrics.
