5 Ways to Maximize Your Freight Coverage & Secure Reliable Capacity

Every shipper knows the dreaded feeling: you have a critical shipment and your carrier fails to pick up, forcing you to choose between disappointing your customer or paying a premium for last-minute capacity.

To meet customer needs in today’s marketplace, you need access to consistent, reliable capacity.

From your customer’s perspective, you are only as reliable as your carriers — if they can’t deliver, your business can’t compete.

But for many businesses, securing capacity is easier said than done. According to our original research study, “sourcing consistent, reliable capacity” is a top three challenge for North American shippers. 

That is not shocking; the truckload market is large and fragmented, which creates a lot of volatility. But you don't have to navigate it on your own.

Here are 5 ways you can get coverage and freight capacity you can count on with Coyote:

 

1. Expand your reach with +70,000 carriers.

With one of the largest, centralized freight marketplaces in North America, Coyote has the capacity you need, no matter when or where you need it.

From owner-operators and small fleets, to regional players and national fleets, we are fully equipped to help drive your freight — and your business — forward.

Whether you’re looking to add reliable capacity to your routing guide, or a “one-stop-shop” for all your supply chain solutions, we are uniquely positioned to offer you the coverage you need across any lane or region.

Coyote by the Numbers:

  • +70,000 Carriers
  • 10,000 Shipments Every Day
  • 1 Centralized Marketplace

 

2. Connect instantly with a simple digital freight platform.

A large carrier network is only valuable if can easily connect with it.

At Coyote, we equip you with digital tools that seamlessly connect you with capacity and help you can efficiently manage your freight.

Our free digital freight platform, CoyoteGO®, gives you the ability to instantly quote, build and track shipments on-demand from your desktop or mobile device.

We also makes it just as easy for carriers to connect with our load board.

Why does that matter to you? It helps get the most real-time capacity in the marketplace, leading to more efficient digital matching on your freight. 

You can instantly connect to capacity from thousands of carriers with your free CoyoteGO account.

3. Leverage dedicated freight specialists.

While having the right tech tools is important, your business needs more than a digital platform to gain the security of reliable coverage.

You need the expertise of a trustworthy provider who understands your business and the freight market.
