FreeFreightSearch.com is the world’s largest FREE transportation load board. “Load boards are Internet sites where trucking companies search for loads and post their trucks, matching parties with freight to move with motor carriers with available trucks nearby”, explains Interstate’s spokesperson, Tony Furman.
The site was originally known as CheckFreightBroker.com in 2009 when the company was founded as a site where trucking companies obtained free transportation credit reports. In 2010, the company expanded into freight matching, an industry that Furman estimates is a multi-hundred-million-dollar-per-year industry. In 2013, the company was re-branded as FreeFreightSeach.com to better identity it as a load board. The site still provides free credit reports for trucking companies, but load posting is its main draw.
Since 2010, FreeFreightSearch.com has posted over 60 million truckloads of freight, allowing more than 30,000 site members to search for loads available across North America. FreeFreightSearch.com adds over 1,000 new members every month, an annual growth rate of over 100%, and projects enrolling over 50,000 total members by year-end 2015.
FreeFreightSearch.com is currently in engaged in discussion with several nationally prominent organizations to become exclusive or semi-exclusive site sponsors. An exclusive site sponsorship deal s is expected to quadruple revenue and membership growth in fiscal year 2015. “We cannot comment about the identity of possible site sponsors until a contract is executed,” Furman added. A major announcement is expected early in 2015.
“Suppliers of goods and services to wishing to reach a 100% targeted audience of 50,000+ small trucking companies cannot overlook FreeFreightSearch.com as a place they need to be seen,” predicts Furman. FreeFreighSearch.com is a 100% advertiser supported business model. Every other major load board, by comparison, uses a “pay-to-access” model that may cost thousands of dollars a year for membership–an expense many small and start-up trucking companies simply cannot afford.
