IMCs can get same-day coverage from carriers on DrayNow
While it’s great to post freight days or even weeks in advance on the DrayNow marketplace, orders can get posted on the same day as their appointment times. Of course, if you have the order earlier, post it a decent amount of time ahead of when it needs to get moving. But if the other source of capacity can’t run at the last minute, it is entirely possible to get that capacity from carriers on the DrayNow app.
Sure, the load may need a price increase based on the appointment date and time, but the TRUprice tool is there to let the customer know whether it is competitive or not. After posting, the order will be available to thousands of carriers that are consistently checking the platform for last minute opportunities. If you cannot change the price to something more competitive but do have the flexibility to change the date or time, doing so can only help in getting that necessary capacity.
With a 77% same day coverage rate on the platform, alleviate any worries of whether the load can get capacity or not, and try out the marketplace. No more frantic calls to a carrier base that will not even provide the visibility available on DrayNow as the trip progresses. IMCs can get updates along the way to ensure that everything is running smoothly.
Last minute cancellations are certainly a headache but posting that freight to a marketplace certainly gets the customer moving closer to a solution, rather than wasting hours of time looking for help when they could be moving their other orders in the pipeline. DrayNow is here to streamline the process of finding capacity for any order, whether two weeks in advance, or for that same day.
