CHICAGO, Dec. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- newtrul, the rapidly growing freight aggregation platform, has announced today a new integration partnership with McLeod Software to bring even more tools to McLeod's leading PowerBroker® Digital Freight Matching solution.
With this new integration, freight brokerages using McLeod's PowerBroker can now post and book loads directly within the system by leveraging newtrul's meta search engine and digital booking tool. The streamlined digital booking experience allows a McLeod user to post and book loads without logging into external platforms or changing any operational processes. The service is free to carriers, and freight brokers only pay a low transactional fee for each successful booking.
"Without an integration, brokers spend hours searching through databases, reaching out by phone, email, or third-party booking platforms just to schedule a truck," said newtrul CEO, Ed Stockman. "With this integration, McLeod users can search for and vet carriers, and transact in seconds, saving an average of $70 and 40 minutes each time they need to find a truck."
"newtrul helps us meet our carriers' need for a simple yet effective booking solution that ultimately results in saved time and money on an otherwise labor intensive process for procuring trucks," says Chad Wakefield, Co-Founder and COO of Live Logistics and a user of both McLeod Software and newtrul.
Freight carriers also benefit from the streamlined process. Besides saving time creating and sending quotes and answering calls, carriers benefit from increased visibility to McLeod's customer brokers and shippers. This exposure and efficiency allow carriers to spend more time generating new business and servicing existing customers.
"The Digital Freight Matching service allows our PowerBroker customers and trusted partners to quickly implement automated solutions to cover more loads with fewer hours. We are excited to work with newtrul in this emerging automation of the traditional load booking process," commented Robert Brothers, VP of Product Development at McLeod Software.
McLeod Software boasts more than 700 customers on its ground-breaking PowerBroker solution. These qualified companies will be able to connect to the newtrul platform free of charge by speaking with their account manager.
"We are thrilled to partner with McLeod Software, as their mission of increasing profitability for freight carriers and brokers through highly innovative software directly aligns with our goal of providing zero touch procurement solutions through automated software," concluded Stockman.
