Having the right people on your team can be the difference between you succeeding, stalling, or failing. But it's not just about finding the right people for your team, it's finding the people who will grow and adapt with you over time.
As a carrier, working with the right broker can do wonders for your business. They can be the main point of contact, optimize resource productivity, and connect you to freight quickly and efficiently.
But will the broker that works for you today, work well for you tomorrow?
It’s important to work with a broker who has extensive industry knowledge and experience. However, it's also important to work with a broker who actively embraces, explores, and creates resources that’ll help your business continue to succeed as the logistics industry continues to evolve.
Xpress Technologies brings together the best of both worlds by leveraging over 40 years of industry experience with cutting-edge technology to provide carriers with the freight solutions that’ll meet the unique needs of your business as it changes and grows.
Who is Xpress Technologies?
Xpress Technologies is reimagining the future of freight - we aren’t a trucking company, we’re a technology company. We combined a pioneering machine learning platform with the U.S. Xpress Logistics brokerage so carriers can take advantage of both digital and human brokerage services, and easily access the essential daily tools you need to run your trucking business. At Xpress Technologies, we are dedicated to carrier success, and emphasize visibility in all that we do. Whether you’re just starting your business, or have been in the industry for years, we have the tools and the people that’ll help you succeed, one journey at a time.
Best of Both Worlds
Carriers understand that there isn’t always a single solution to business challenges and there certainly isn’t just one way to get freight. Hardworking carriers and owner operators are used to constantly searching for new ways to find freight, from calling and emailing with multiple brokers to scouring lots of free and paid online load boards, to leveraging full-on digital brokerages. Xpress Technologies provides the best of both worlds, leading the industry as both a traditional and digital brokerage. At the end of the day, Xpress Technologies wants carriers to find freight the way carriers want to find it.
When you use a digital brokerage, you typically use a broker-specific app on your phone that facilitates the pick-up and drop-off shipping process. The primary function of these apps is to provide a load board for carriers to use so you can bid on the best jobs. However, this can be a time-consuming process and can lead to frustration, especially when you don’t know who to call for help.
You need to use an efficient load board that saves, not wastes, time. With the Xpress Technologies Carrier App you can receive notifications of loads in your favorite lanes, post your truck availability on specific days and for specific locations, and manage your loads by using a state-of-the-art tracking system.
Xpress Technologies is the first to bring a machine learning-powered platform directly to carriers. This technology, which is available at no cost, learns what types of loads and lanes you prefer and is able to make progressively more tailored suggestions - making it easier than ever to find loads that fit your operation’s unique needs.
At Xpress Technologies, we know there is no replacing 1:1 human support, which is why carriers are also able to work directly with our brokers to book loads over phone or email.
You need to work with a brokerage company that sets you up for success. Our Xpress Technologies brokers work hard to build and maintain long-lasting relationships with their carriers. Our brokers communicate regularly with you so you’re fully informed and equipped for the loads you accept and are ready to help solve issues that may arise during delivery.
When you work directly with an Xpress Technologies broker, you also benefit from machine learning-powered load matching. Our brokers use this technology to help connect you with loads that best suit your freight preferences.
Xpress Technologies believes in providing the best resources possible for carriers from day one. Whether you have questions about ELDs and onboarding or are trying to figure out what map search is, Xpress Technologies is here to help.
Is It Time to Break Up With Your Current Broker?
There are benefits to using a digital brokerage and working directly with a broker. Xpress Technologies knows you need the best tools and people on your team - which is why carriers are able to use both digital and traditional brokerage when they work with us. You can take advantage of our services in the way that fits your business today and in the future.
Xpress Technologies is, above all, dedicated to carrier success. We want carriers to have the tools and relationships that will help your business grow. The trucking industry is changing, and you need to take advantage of the technologies and support that’ll help you adapt and stay competitive.
The tools and relationships that may have worked for you once, may not be working now. If you’ve noticed there are gaps in the brokerage services you're currently using, it's time to break up with your current broker and switch to Xpress Technologies.
