What is Digital Freight Matching?

Digital Freight Matching is an automated and predictive platform that streamlines the process of capacity fulfillment by directing freight to the right match. At a high level, DFM makes booking loads as easy as clicking a button. It has the power to scale booking efficiency and help firms build strong relationships within the industry while cutting down risk, time, and cost.

DFM uses the desired parameters for a load, including lanes, dates of pickup and drop off, weight, and cargo type, to match loads with trucks that best fit the bill. Using machine learning, process algorithms, and API-based technology, DFM can rapidly and accurately find the ideal carrier and truck for a shipper’s load. 

How does Cargo Chief integrate with McLeod Software’s PowerBroker®?

Cargo Chief’s DFM simplifies booking freight by automating the load negotiation process. As loads are built, Cargo Chief will send offers to carriers matching our unique database, improving carrier retention and lining you up to book more freight with more options.
