Free freight matching site
adds bill payment feature
Mar 8, 2012 7:00 AM
Check Freight Broker LLC (CFB), a 100% free freight matching site, announces the integration of its funding technology platform, Freight Payable Systems.
This allows users to request fuel advances and prompt freight bill payment direct from the site with just one click of a mouse. With the integration of Freight Payable Systems complete, CFB becomes a load board where motor carriers can not only find freight and 10,000-plus free freight broker credit reports, but also can obtain fuel advances and payment on their freight bills without leaving the site.
CFB is bucking the freight matching trend by betting motor carriers prefer a free freight matching site. Other freight matching sites charge users up to thousands of dollars per year in subscription fees to access their load boards.
“The systems of the other load boards and factoring companies to which they refer their users don’t speak to each other,” said Tony Furman, developer of Freight Payable Systems and CFB and president of Interstate Capital. “By integrating our funding technology directly into the load board, our freight matching and funding features are seamless.”
Confident that motor carriers and freight brokers will prefer its model of doing business, CFB encourages a comparison. It developed CompareLoadBoards.com to make this point.
CFB designed the funding membership to appeal to motor carriers that use load boards and factoring companies. Free standard memberships are available for those who don’t need the funding feature. Either way, every member of the site has been able to search the more than five million posted loads. The site now has tens of thousands of trucks and approximately 50,000 page views per month.
The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Interstate Capital, provider of transportation funding.
