Watch our demo now or read on to find out more about the inner-workings of the innovative Carggo platform and carrier mobile app.
Hauling the Carggo Way
Carggo simplifies freight logistics by creating a quick, easy platform in which 3PLs and/or their shippers can book loads, carriers can find a load that works for them, and more. Carggo’s full transparency instills trust throughout the entire process and provides 3PLs, their shippers, and carriers with a multitude of choices for their shipment.
Creating a New Load
3PLs and their shippers will find a seamless experience when they choose to haul their items with Carggo. To create a new load simply enter:
- Your origin
- Your end destination
- Your equipment type
After doing this, you can use Carggo’s PriceFinder to see prices based on your preferences for contract vs. spot, lead time, transit time, different modes, and different appointment windows. You’ll be able to compare prices with current market trends to ship with confidence in the fairness of the offered price.
You’ll also receive real-time tracking abilities for lane forecasts, annual lane performance, tender acceptance rates, load to truck ratios, and lane seasonality.
Once you’ve selected the price that fits your needs, proceed to “Book Now”. Enter the load details. Hit “Create Load” and you’re set.
After you’ve created your load, you’ll be taken to our dashboard where your load will be featured in your “Load List”. Here you’ll find real-time GPS tracking, access to your assigned Carggo employee, and more.
Carggo smart load matching technology creates optimized load recommendations for carriers based on their needs. Smart load matching technology recommends loads based on behaviors, preferences, and lifestyles. When registering, you are first asked to enter equipment type and areas of operation. Carggo’s machine learning engine then uses this data to recommend shipments that work for you. As the AI learns more about your preferences in lanes, times, etc. it will adapt and improve the quality of your recommendations.
As a carrier, you’ll experience full transparency. Once the you accept a load and assign a driver (if there is only one, assignment is automatic), you will see real-time status updates that are available to all parties involved – the 3PL, shipper, and carrier.
Lastly, Carggo’s “Find Load” feature allows you to find backhaul loads along routes home so you can avoid hauling air.
The Carggo Intelligence Dashboard provides meaningful insights to improve efficiencies at the facility and/or lane level, evaluate performance and spend, and additional metrics to help you plan and ship smarter such as total spend, total loads, tender acceptance rates, on-time pickups, and average detention.
Carggo’s interactive map helps you better understand your specific network on a facility and lane level through the utilization of historical, market, and sonar data. This interactive map allows you to find valuable insights in each of your shipments.
