Private Fleets

These days, many private fleets face rising costs and pressure to fill empty backhauls with freight. But for most private fleet managers, their focus is on delivering products to their company’s customers and they often lack time to seek freight to bring in revenues.

After two years of research and development, a team of experienced technology and transportation professionals launched Post.Bid.Ship. to alleviate inefficiencies in today’s commercial freight transportation marketplace and to help private fleet managers generate revenues for their divisions.

Post.Bid.Ship. understands that private fleet managers need convenient and efficient access to freight where their trucks operate. With Post.Bid.Ship., private fleets can earn new business and fill their backhauls using Post.Bid.Ship.’s innovative online transportation marketplace.

Post.Bid.Ship.’s goal is to help match reputable shippers with high quality transportation providers, including private fleets that seek occasional or regular freight to fill their partially empty head-hauls and empty back-hauls.

To be clear, Post.Bid.Ship. is not a freight brokerage. We match shippers directly with the transportation provider who will be responsible for moving their freight. We do not charge carriers or freight brokers a transaction fee to submit bids nor do we charge carriers a transaction fee for each shipment won. Our goal is to encourage carriers to bid on as many shipments as possible.

Post.Bid.Ship. works by enabling shippers to post their freight shipments. After a shipment is posted, Post.Bid.Ship.’s member carriers and freight brokers submit bids and a match occurs when a shipper awards their shipment to a bidding Post.Bid.Ship. user.

Here is a quick overview of the ways in which private fleets benefit from Post.Bid.Ship.’s service:

  • Enables private fleets to bid on loads and win freight from quality shippers and freight brokers.
  • Helps turn the carrier division from a cost center to a revenue generator.
  • Allows private fleet managers to receive Freight Alarms - automatic email alerts when shippers and freight brokers post loads that match the private fleet’s equipment and origin or destination needs.
  • Reduces private fleets’ empty back-haul miles.

Post.Bid.Ship. invites private fleet managers and support personnel to take advantage of this technology to improve the efficiency of their operations and access new freight.

Recommended Post.Bid.Ship. Plans for Private Fleets:

Post.Bid.Ship. Premier

Post.Bid.Ship. Premier is Post.Bid.Ship.'s second most feature-rich plan. Post.Bid.Ship. Premier is designed for Commercial Shippers, Freight Brokers, Private Fleet Managers and Commercial Carriers looking to bid out their freight and utilize the Internet to save both time and money.

Premier helps commercial shippers that are seeking to receive online bids for their freight from their existing carriers and freight brokers plus the ability to recruit new carriers and freight brokers to cover both existing and newly added lanes. Freight Brokers not currently in the market for a Transportation Management System (TMS) are ideal users of Post.Bid.Ship. Premier because Premier offers every feature included in Post.Bid.Ship. Enterprise without the TMS features. Private fleet managers seeking a system to locate freight to haul using their own equipment to help fill their partially full head-hauls and back-hauls while also seeking carriers and brokers to bid on both their inbound and outbound freight will appreciate Post.Bid.Ship. Premier. Lastly, Premier is designed for carriers looking to recruit other carriers and freight brokers to bid on their overcapacity freight while also looking for additional freight to fill their unused trailer capacity.

Premier offers users the ability to post all 3 types of loads: Request Quote, Live Load and Contract (coming soon). The two lesser plans that offer posting freight ability, Combo and Post Plus offer only Request Quote making Premier a must have plan for users looking to post Live Loads and Contracts. Premier also offers the ability to search 1,000's of Post.Bid.Ship. registered carriers and freight brokers that best match your needs and utilize our innovative system. Find carriers and brokers based on trailer types offered, load size preferences (LTL or TL), lanes serviced based on countries, states and provinces, user feedback score thresholds based on reviews submitted by other Post.Bid.Ship. users and the type of shippers whether commercial shippers and/or freight brokers the carriers and freight brokers prefer to service.
