With the advent of technology it is easier to find a truck on rent. Technology has enabled the social life to live easier. This is the case in logistics industry too. Transportation industry is witnessing innovative technology intervention to ease the business. There are many B2B logistics platforms available nowadays to connect customers and truckers. Both customers having loads for truck and the truck owners register on such a platform.
After registration gets confirmed by the platform administration both parties can login. After logging inside the platform both parties can post their requirements or view previously listed requirements. Shippers having truck loads can post their requirements. Truckers can view such requirements and bid for them with their terms and conditions, if there could be any.
The price becomes very competitive in the bidding system of truck load transportation. Even if shipper is unknown of the freight charges, shipper gets an idea of the budget. The freight charges must be reasonable as the bidders know the price etc. will be compared with other bidder’s price etc. The things look pretty easier in this way. Thanks to the technology intervention in budget rent a truck system.
Another advantage of such technology platforms is both the parties are verified by the administration of such platforms. Such platforms verify users offline too besides the online process. This generates a trust bridge among the shippers and truckers. So far technology has proved a blessing to find truck in budget and that too very easily. It is in contrast to the manual search of hiring a truck.
Shippers get more satisfaction when they see exact location of the moving truck during the transportation of their loads. Few such B2B techno logistics platforms charge a negligible amount per transaction and few are free of charge. In general, shippers do not need to pay charge but truckers need to pay a nominal charge. This nominal charge is acceptable as the platform provides hassle free transportation business solution.
