BestMatch Minimizes Empty Miles by Truck Load Optimization

Bestway Transportation Management Solutions allow shippers and carriers to collaborate on real-time truck availability

Find green business solutions
Supply Chain The BestMatch transportation search portal increases the efficiency of the nation's trucking fleets by allowing shippers and carriers to achieve higher equipment utilization rates. The information within the portal helps to minimize the number of empty miles traveled by allowing shippers and carriers to identify the most efficient combination of freight loads and available trucks.

BestTransport's Transportation Management Solutions (TMSs) are designed for companies who want highly functional technology and support without the time-consuming, complex implementation of standard software. With BestTransport, there is no software to install and no releases to manage; you pay only for the value received. Because BestTransport performs all system upgrades, you always have access to the latest technology without the cost or involvement. BestTransport begins producing results for you in just weeks.

"When you see a truck on the highway, there is between a 15 to 20 percent chance that it is traveling empty." said Mark Shary, CEO of BestTransport. "BestMatch lets shippers and carriers identify opportunities to fill it, resulting in real and immediate savings."

BestMatch represents approximately 30,000 daily freight loads and 150,000 available trucks, with additional users being added each week. Each user has the ability to define their own network of partners, providing each with previously unavailable visibility to both freight and capacity.

Prior to launch, BestMatch evolved through a relationship with the National Industrial Transportation League, an association of the nation's largest shippers and carriers. The League's 75+ Highway Transportation Committee members helped define BestMatch and are among its first group of users.

"The results of our initial efforts with BestMatch showed that our members could find new opportunities to ship freight more efficiently than before." said John Ficker, President of NITL. "Increasing the efficiency of existing trucking capacity is a benefit to shippers, carriers and the environment as well."
