ATLANTA — February 09, 2021 — SemiCab, a cloud-based digital freight ecosystem, today announced a year of record growth that included rapid community expansion, thriving partnerships, and strong industry accolades.
Despite a challenging economic environment, SemiCab grew its user community of shippers and carriers threefold year-over-year and increased the average number of loads per day available on its platform to 100k. The company also forged new partnerships with premier technology providers and released an innovative app that enables on-the-go shippers to instantly book a load without back-and-forth negotiations.
With volatility in the freight industry expected to continue throughout 2021, and more and more shippers looking for ways to access efficient one-way capacity, increase the utilization of their private and dedicated fleets, and adhere to stricter sustainability practices by reducing waste in transportation, the need for shippers, carriers, and brokers to collaborate is more pressing than ever.
“2020 was pivotal in showing the SemiCab team that a collaborative approach is what the freight industry needs in order to survive the unpredictability of the space,” said Jagan Reddy, Chief Community Officer of SemiCab. “As capacity shortages continue to challenge shippers, we’re well positioned to help them secure predictable, reliable, and efficient capacity that they would not be able to locate through other resources.”
Additional 2020 highlights include:
