FreightWaves – The advent of digital freight matching within the trucking sector has brought order to the chaos of the spot market, as it helps usher real-time visibility into both capacity and volumes available in a market. 

However, digital freight marketplaces do not come with a guarantee that every shipper on the platform would have its loads matched to a carrier. Around 5% of all shippers on these platforms reportedly get their loads rejected or go unnoticed.
