Schneider launched Schneider FreightPower, a digital marketplace that provides carriers with easy access to more quality, reliable freight. By leveraging the power of the platform, carriers have unprecedented access to the vast network of Schneider’s blue-chip shippers – through both an online portal and mobile app – without sacrificing the personal touch they expect and deserve.
As a result, carriers spend less time searching for loads that are worth hauling and more time managing their business for maximum results.
“Schneider understands that every minute in the day matters, and carriers need the right tools at their fingertips to enhance their business,” says Mark Rourke, Schneider’s president and chief executive officer. “FreightPower is just one of the ways we’re continuously investing in carriers to provide them with an exceptional experience that ensures they’re able to maximize their results today and well into the future.”
FreightPower is backed by Schneider’s strength and stability to push carriers’ businesses ahead with access to tools such as:
- Load recommendations: Carriers receive recommendations based on available trucks, lanes posted and pending inbound shipments.
- Book Now: Negotiation-free prices are published with available, reliable loads, allowing carriers to book the load immediately.
- GPS tracking: Freight visibility is real time, all the time, with GPS tracking, geofencing and automatic arrival and departure notices.
- Manage fleet: Dispatchers can assign drivers to loads and manage the fleet in this one-stop-shop portal, while drivers can accept and track loads.
- Trip information: Direct visibility to location, routes, references, appointments, equipment and trailer information is in one place, eliminating time spent waiting on a broker.
Carriers using the mobile app gain even more time-saving features:
- Enhanced filters: Additional filtering capabilities help carriers find the loads they want even faster.
- Watch loads: Monitor loads of interest and book when the time is right.
- Favorite routes: Quickly and easily come back to preferred loads.
“We have found that FreightPower helps save carriers as much as three hours every day,” says Erin Van Zeeland, senior vice president and general manager of logistics services at Schneider. “That is time they can use for more turns, more growth and more income.”
