Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak began, wholesaler-distributors have been experiencing significant challenges around trucking capacity, expense and driver shortages. Full truckload capacity is getting tighter as demand surges to replenish distribution centers and stores.

Because of all this NAW accelerated negotiations to enter into a partnership with Emerge, the leading Digital Freight Marketplace, for full truckload management, which can help you deal with market volatility. Managing capacity in one place, as opposed to spreadsheets and emails, while connecting directly to carriers is a key to mitigate the risk of supply shortages or skyrocketing costs. Emerge can get you to capacity quickly, efficiently and at the most competitive rates. The Emerge platform is free to set-up and use and has no monthly or maintenance fees.

Emerge is one of the fastest-growing startups in the U.S. and is transforming the $800 billion transportation and logistics industry. The platform provides rates from current incumbents, vetted carriers and brokers and open backhaul capacity from private and dedicated fleets. Users can manage their spot freight, track and trace their loads and download real-time analytics helping them to make the smartest decisions from pickup to delivery.
