Shippers nationwide find traditional freight modes inefficient and costly.
News reports covering major supply-chain disruptions have highlighted delays at ports and driver shortages, but have missed a key piece of the transportation equation: half the trucks clogging dockyards and highways are moving at less-than-maximized capacity.

Such inefficiencies exist in two traditional over-the-road (OTR) shipping modes: less than truckload (LTL) and truckload (TL).
