The Web site combines information on all of the company’s freight services products and services, including load boards, tracking and communication, transportation management software, distribution services and fleet compliance services. Officials say the site’s design is tailored to the needs of specific customer segments, such as brokers, carriers, owner/operators and shippers, offered detailed product information geared towards their unique business models.
Additional informational resources found on site includes case studies and industry analyses, including the company’s recent broker benchmark survey and a guide to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) program called CSA 2010, as well as industry events and a selection of news items.
