Evans Transportation and FreightFriend Announce Partnership to Bring Intelligent Freight Matching and Automation to Users and Carriers
In its quest to deliver high-value strategic services, Evans Transportation partners with FreightFriend to focus explicitly on carrier and capacity management, automated engagement, and digital execution.
CHICAGO, IL and DELAFIELD, WI (February 9, 2023) — FreightFriend, a cloud-based truckload procurement solution for shippers, brokers, and 3PLs, will now be available to Evans Transportation, including carrier relationship management, auto-communication to intelligent freight matches, and digital execution. Evans Transportation Carrier Rep teams using the FreightFriend platform ensure access to trusted carrier data to secure the right capacity.
“Our above-and-beyond customer service and customized strategic solutions for which we’re known - the Evans Experience - is why partnering with FreightFriend is a perfect fit,” said Jason Mansur, Evans Transportation President and Chief Operating Officer. “Our integration allows our customers to strengthen their carrier relationships, keep their data private, and make quicker, smarter decisions based on FreightFriends’ ranking algorithm and automated communications.”
In the transportation industry, the work never stops so adding more time for Carrier Rep Teams to focus outside of freight matching helps our business grow. Plus, the added benefit of keeping carrier and freight data private means others aren’t lifting this information from public load boards.
With the partnership, Evans Transportation users can instantly leverage FreightFriend’s platform by ranking carriers using public, private, and carrier data, and automating communications to those that match.
“Posting freight across load boards and sharing data only increases inefficiencies,” said Noam Frankel, FreightFriend Founder and CEO. “That’s why we’re excited to bring the FreightFriend platform to Evans Transportation and provide their Carrier Rep teams the opportunity to make smarter decisions using our intelligent freight matching.”
Users will be able to see ranked matches and set up auto communications with existing and procured carriers in their FreightFriend network - while leveraging their MercuryGate integration.
