TORONTO – TransCore Link Logistics announces the launch of its highly anticipated Loadlink next generation service. A new edition of the load board enables members of the service to combine all of their freight matching activities on Canada’s largest freight-matching network.

The new software is a single platform service, discontinuing the need for member apps to operate in silos. Loadlink is packed with incredible new technology that enables a lighter, faster and seamless service that requires no install.

The first Loadlink launched in 1990 revolutionized the way that the Canadian trucking industry looked for loads and equipment. “It forever changed the way that technology could play a crucial part in trucking,” said Claudia Milicevic, TransCore’s senior director & general manager. “This redesign of Loadlink started with answering the needs of what current members of the software wanted most, the intuitive user experience that customers will benefit from, and jammed-packed features that current and future Loadlink customers are going to love.”

Fuller, More Immersive Freight Matching Activities Include

  • Loadlink Driver app: The free Driver app is essential for drivers who want to work with Canada’s freight brokers and carrier companies on Loadlink. The Driver app enables driver tracking which bridges the gap so that customers can be serviced better.
  • Real-Time Load Tracking: Once assigned a load, carriers can track the driver’s location with time stamps and share this information with the broker.
  • Document Sharing: Once a load is delivered, the driver can take a photo of the proof of delivery and upload it to Loadlink, which can then be shared with any party the carrier desires to.
  • Templates for frequent lanes: Repetitive postings are easily accessed with the option to repost select or all postings available for the day.
  • Preferred networks: Customize private networks benefit preferred companies in specific lanes.

Trucking industry innovations are critical to meeting the demands of the future. The new Loadlink brings forward efficiencies, time saving and revenue-generating opportunities that are all important to help elevate the way freight is moved. With over 18 million loads, and trucks on the system and over $2.5 billion in invoiced transactions on its Rate Index truckload spot market rate tool, Loadlink, Rate Index and other ancillary products continue to be vital services to its customers.

“We’ve worked hard for more than a year building, testing and reinventing our approach to load matching,” said Milicevic. “This enhanced Loadlink creates a unique and engaging experience that will provide existing and new Loadlink customers with fresh ways for more revenue opportunities for their business. We’re excited to be making this available to existing customers first.”
