The Enterprise Shipper’s Guide to Building a Smarter Truckload Request For Proposal

In this white paper (guide), we learn the secret to booking a more efficient, affordable, and sustainable truckload freight service.

Report Overview

According to research by Flock Freight, North American businesses spend an estimated $7 billion on truckload (TL) freight that ships with unused trailer space every year.

That’s equivalent to five out of every 100 truckloads moving empty.

Furthermore, the average utilization of TL trailers is only 66%. That means ⅓ of all North American TL expenditure pays to ship air!

Flock Freight has found a solution to the industry’s empty-truck problem that unlocks a financial arbitrage. We call it “Instant Prebate”.

In this guide, we’ll propose Flock Freight’s Instant Prebate program as an alternative to the standard TL RFP process. We’ll also give larger shippers the strategies they need to conduct smarter TL RFPs, while increasing service levels, securing capacity, and reducing costs.
