BulkLoadsNow.com reaches a record number of load postings in the bulk truck freight industry.
Nixa, MO (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
BulkLoadsNow.com, a fast-growing bulk truck freight matching site, reached over 9000 members in December along with approximately 437,000 posted loads. Its freight-matching site or “load board” connects shippers in the grain, feed, fertilizer, food and manufacturing industry with carriers that pull hopper bottom, end dump, walking floor, pneumatic and liquid tanker trailers.
“Our goal was to design the most feature packed load board for the bulk trucking industry,” Matt Fredin, Operating Partner said. “The response has been overwhelming and we see growth every week.”
Bulk Loads Now first launched as a beta site in early 2010 to get a feel for what people working in the bulk commodity industry wanted and needed. In August 2011, BulkLoadsNow.com officially launched offering its members numerous free services and an upgraded premium membership.
“We have the most robust freight-matching site out there and we’re continuing to add more features every month,” said Jared Flinn, Operating Partner at Bulk Loads Now. “Members are excited to be a part of this community and they know we’ll continue to add value to their membership. From day one our priority has been listening to and connecting with our members to create real solutions for their needs.”
Bulk Loads Now load board averages more than 20,000 loads posted at any given time and provides members with a searchable database of every carrier in North America. The site’s most popular feature is Load History, where carriers aggregate lists of shippers who have currently or historically posted loads in any given location and email them all within a matter of seconds. This allows carriers to contact shippers specifically in the states shippers post out of along with the specific equipment they pull. Furthermore, it gives the carriers access to shippers and brokers whom might not have loads currently posted.
BulkLoadsNow.com also launched its first smart phone application. The app allows members, specifically carriers, to easily access the site's most used features while on the road.
