Today, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, truckers are driving longer and wearing tires down faster to haul essential loads and keep our supply chain moving.

Today, Convoy announced another first in the trucking industry: 100% automated brokering of loads to carriers, comprised of matching and pricing, on lanes in top freight markets including Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, and Los Angeles, among others. In February 2019, Convoy announced 100% automated load matching. With today’s milestone, we have now achieved 100% automated load […]

The inefficiencies in trucking are not new. For years,  people have talked about empty miles, yet 35% of all miles are still driven empty. There is a shortage of drivers, yet detention and payment remain a hassle. Drivers spend an average of 2.5 hours loading or unloading at each stop. These issues eventually translate into […]

Carriers have told us that there are times they prefer to work on a computer — including when they have multiple trucks or dispatchers, when a dedicated bookkeeper manages paperwork and receipts, or simply when they are not on the road. That’s why we first launched our web experience for carriers in July of 2017. […]
