Freight Exchange

What is a Freight Exchange?

A freight exchange, also known as online freight exchange, is an online service that connects the haulage, logistics and freight forwarding companies on the web. Basically, it allows the companies to go through a database for available freight and market their available vehicle capacity.

These type of systems provide a platform for carriers to communicate cargo traffic information to shipping companies. Generally, the freight exchange service is subscription-based. More information is available on this page.
