    Tech III: Empowering the Long Tail of Truckload Carriers

    It’s a cliché at this point, but the US truckload market is highly fragmented and utterly reliant on small fleets and independent drivers. As demand exploded in 2021, that only attracted more small carriers to the market. But as the market softens in 2022, there’s a looming question: Will this year be different, and what role will a cohort of technology providers focused on the long tail of truckload carriers play in making these small carriers more viable? These vendors not only enable small carriers to make their back office, dispatching, and customer-facing operations more efficient, but they also bring structure and visibility to small carriers, ultimately enabling shippers to get access to more capacity. In this session, a trio of technology providers for small carriers will discuss how this will shake out in 2022 and beyond.
