Shippers and carriers alike appreciate the simplicity of the Dairy.com Transportation Market.
Through our secure, always-available online marketplace, shippers and haulers can gain instant insight into transportation supply and demand. Hundreds of loads of fluid product movements take place on Dairy.com each week, providing a significant source of potential revenue for the food-grade tanker industry. Both parties of the dairy transportation equation benefit from the Transportation Market:
- Shippers receive an opportunity to post loads and take advantage of a centralized view of product movement across the food-grade tanker community.
- Haulers find customers and revenue opportunities through the low cost/no risk filling of empty miles.
Transportation Market participants find two avenues of opportunity: contract market transactions for planned shipments, and spot market transactions for non-contractually scheduled shipments.
If a shipper schedules transportation on Dairy.com, a specific transportation contract is set up for each product transaction. As a result, haulers are electronically notified of each load that requires their acceptance. During this process, data is accumulated for reporting and for reconciling with a shipper’s accounts payable department.
With a few clicks, shippers can make loads available simultaneously to several hundred tanker haulers. Haulers compete for the best opportunities and benefit from drastically reducing backhauls. Online negotiations are quick and simple.
Since 2002 the Transportation Market has connected bulk dairy commodity shippers with qualified food-grade tanker haulers, creating a “win-win” hub for all parties.
