Cargomatic is an on-demand technology that connects shippers with nearby carriers who have extra space on their trucks.
NOTE: Before downloading the Cargomatic Driver App, please complete your profile at cargomatic.com.
The Cargomatic Driver app allows carriers to manage freight directly from their phone, including:
- view available shipments in real time
- accept a job
- receive driving directions
- take a picture of the bill of lading
- email a POD
Cargomatic allows trucking companies to market excess capacity and accept extra shipments that are on their delivery routes.
We offer LTL, FTL and drayage shipping solutions. Our carrier network includes bobtails, tractor trailers, and cargo vans.
**How Cargomatic Works**
Shippers log in to the Cargomatic Shipper App or at http://app.cargomatic.com and enter their shipment information (origin, destination, size, weight, etc.). Two hours before the shipment is scheduled to be picked up, the shipment is displayed on the Driver App and a nearby carrier can accept the job using their smartphone.
By tendering shipments in real time, carriers only see shipments that are on or near their existing routes and ready for immediate pickup. This allows them to maximize the space on their trucks and reduce the number of vehicles a shipper needs to have on hand to accommodate peak business cycles.
Everyday, tens of thousands of trucks with extra capacity are driving by manufacturers and logistics providers who have freight that needs to move in the same direction. Simply by connecting these parties through software, we can reduce truck emissions by improving the ratio of freight moved per vehicle-miles traveled.
