A Freight Marketplace or Digital Freight Marketplace (DFM) are online plaforms where shippers and carriers can bypass traditional brokerages and interact directly, posting or picking loads that meet each other’s criteria. Actually it is extising technology as you know it as a consumer similar to marketplaces like Amazon, only a DFM is fully focused on the B2B Freight, Transport and Logistics Industry. Brokers can create transactional and operational inefficiencies by exchanging and extracting information between both parties in ways that benefit their own business first. This is rather typical in market fluctuations that occur in a cyclical manner. A DFM eliminates these inefficiencies mostly by offering a solution that exists in other industries today: a marketplace where buyers & sellers can interact directly.
