Our blogs cover industry leading thinking on the long haul trucking and the role of digital freight ecosystems such as SemiCab. We publish often, so come back and visit us for fresh content.
Read on for key takeaways from our latest Webinar, Virtual Dedicated Capacity: The Antidote to Freight Capacity Volatility. We discussed dynamic pricing, dedicated fleets, and freight marketplace volatility, along with our solution to the issue: virtual dedicated capacity through SemiCab’s predictive optimization algorithm.
Dynamic pricing has been a part of the freight marketplace for years, and yet, is it really beneficial? Let’s break down the concept of dynamic pricing and explore why all of us at SemiCab believe the current freight model is broken. It’s time for change.
