New load opportunities, new brokers, to flow through ‘Convoy for Brokers’ platform

November 18, 2021

The Convoy company today steps into load-board territory with a new “Convoy for Brokers” program —¬†offering freight brokers other than Convoy’s own brokerage direct access to the network of owner-operators and small carriers who use its current platform. That’s not a small number of trucking companies — the company says it represents more than 300,000 trucks in aggregate.

If you’re a Convoy app user today, said company VP of Partnerships Brooks McMahon, you don’t have to do anything new to access new load opportunities that may arise from third-party brokers’ engagement with the system. “Carriers that are already certified in our network simply need to sign into the Convoy app. They’ll see loads from Convoy and from participating third-party brokers together in the app, which they can then review and select loads to bid on.”
