Direct Freight Services, TMW Systems create freight board interface

van freightDirect Freight Services, one of the largest online freight matching services in the transportation industry, and TMW Systems, a provider of transportation management software, announced the availability of new integrations between Direct Freight Services and both TMWSuite and TruckMate via the Freight Board Interface module from TMW.  The new integrations are designed for use by brokers, carriers, 3PLs and fleet operations.

Direct Freight Services has been serving the trucking industry for over 17 years.  Thousands of companies post their available loads on Direct Freight’s network every day.  This network links loads and trucks using a combination of the Internet, smart phones, email alerts, text message alerts and a nationwide network of truck stop screens.  Information is updated in real time with no duplicate listings.

The integration with TMW Systems offers users of TMWSuite or TruckMate transportation management software the ability to quickly get load information to drivers and dispatchers that can help them get their freight moving fast, the company says.  The interfaces will allow users to automatically post information such as origin city, destination city, equipment type, etc. directly to the Direct Freight Services network.

There will be no fees from Direct Freight Services for integration to either TMWSuite or TruckMate.  In addition, users will have access to free load posting, free truck posting, and free truck searching from Direct Freight, the company announced. Users who post to the Direct Freight network will also have the ability to post available loads and trucks back to their own website at no charge.

For added exposure, Direct Freight Services offers a mobile web site and a nationwide network of truck stop screens.  This network includes hundreds of screens located in truck stops across the United States.  These screens display real-time information featuring available loads within a 100 mile radius of each truck stop.

The Direct Freight Interface is available for TMWSuite and TMW Operations customers using release 15.10 of the Freight Board Interface from TMW.  It is also available for TruckMate release 2014 SP1 using the same Freight Board Interface release from TMW.
