Banyan Technology provides freight management software for over-the-road shipping, offering real-time business intelligence and actionable insights to streamline increased efficiency and cost reductions for freight brokerages and third-party logistics providers. Banyan’s Live Connect software includes truckload, less-than-truckload, local carrier, and parcel capabilities.
“We are excited about our new partnership with Banyan Technology and the benefits it will provide to our freight broker and third-party logistics provider customers,” said Kary Jablonski, Trucker Tools’ chief executive. “With this integration, users of Banyan’s Live Connect can leverage Trucker Tools’ automated booking technology, freight matching, and shipment visibility to drive greater efficiency and reduce costs at a time when operating expenses for transportation businesses are at all-time highs.”
The partnership integrates Banyan Technology and Trucker Tools via an API connection to give Live Connect users the ability to post loads for and accept bids from carriers in Trucker Tools’ network of nearly 2.5 million drivers and 250,000 carriers. The integration also allows users of Live Connect to retrieve shipment details, tracking updates, and uploaded documents from Trucker Tools via Live Connect’s user interface.
“We are excited to announce our latest integration with Trucker Tools to further enhance our Truckload capabilities and complement our commitment to all over-the-road modes,” said Brian Smith, Banyan Technology CEO. “The Trucker Tools integration provides a clear path for our clients and partners to access the Truckload spot market and to further streamline their shipping processes for all over-the-road modes including Truckload, LTL, local carrier, and parcel.”
Jablonski added that the two organizations share a mission to help brokers leverage real-time data to make better business decisions while building lasting, productive relationships with independent owner-operators and carriers of all sizes.
The Trucker Tools mobile driver app launched in 2013 and has been downloaded by nearly 2.5 million drivers. The mobile app is available for both Android- and Apple-powered smartphones and is provided free to independent truckers and small fleets.
