Freight brokers, 3pls will search for capacity using e-log data from truckers

GPS Tracking

During the last year or two, a number of companies have developed online platforms that connect all parties involved in freight transactions.

Most of these include a mobile app that drivers use to streamline communications with motor carriers, brokers, 3pls and shippers.

Drivers with capacity, be they independent operators or small fleet owners, are using these apps to automatically give their location to brokers and shippers to find loads and provide tracking updates.
