The Teleroute freight exchange opens up new opportunities for small transport operators
Brussels, January 8, 2013 – Teleroute, a leading European online freight exchange, has adapted its products Teleroute PRO and Teleroute ACTIVE with new tools to post offers or find small freights and small vehicles. This will benefit small operators but also larger transport companies who often have a van in their fleet that is not used in an optimised way.
Small freights for small vans
In the internet-era and e-business boom, the road transport sector has been affected with more and more small loads that need to be delivered. Teleroute engaged with customers in 2012 to understand if small freights/small vans offers would have a market on its freight exchange and the results are clear: many operators want to use the freight exchange to post small freight or advertise their small van.
Therefore, Teleroute customers who have freight smaller than 1,6T can now benefit from detailing their offer with the four new check boxes on the freight exchange. This gives them a larger choice in qualified operators offering their van at the right price. Van operators can find freight suitable for their vehicles more easily, while small freight posters can make their load more easily identifiable and avoid dealing with offers that don’t match the freight or vehicle.
“With the new freight options in our freight exchange, our customers will no longer have to load freights smaller than 1,6T into large trucks, which was a waste of space, time and ultimately money. They can now detail their freight in volume, weight and pallet specifications to find the suitable vehicle. More details provide them with a bigger choice in operators and vehicles for a qualified and safe quality transport at the right price,” said Filip Aerts, Chief Marketing Officer of Teleroute.
Of course the new van operators will be validated through the Teleroute verification process to make sure the freight exchange community remains built on a community of trustworthy business partners.
