TruckSmarter, AscendTMS Integrate To Increase Access To Free Load Posting Directly To Owner Operators And Small Carriers

TAMPA, FLA. –May 7, 2024 – This week, TruckSmarter, currently the fastest growing load board for brokers and carriers, and AscendTMS, the #1 rated transportation management system (TMS), have announced their official integration.

The integration allows freight brokers using the AscendTMS platform to post quickly and easily to TruckSmarter’s 100% free load board, largely comprised of tens of thousands of dedicated owner operators. Together, the two logistics leaders will give brokers greater access to free load posting services, with increased reach to TruckSmarter’s 120,000 carriers, and the convenience of one-click posting to the top-rated load board for owner operators through the AscendTMS platform.

Paolo Bernasconi, TruckSmarter Co-Founder and CTO, says, “We’re excited to partner with AscendTMS and grateful for their support. Together, we will equip brokers, especially mid- to small-sized brokers, with more and better tools to move freight. The TruckSmarter Load Board is not only free for brokers, but it allows brokers to post unlimited loads, however they choose, including in their TMS. So, we end up aligning with and amplifying their workflow, instead of forcing them to adjust to a new platform.”

Tim Higham, CEO of AscendTMS, said; “Many brokers and shippers prefer working with professional owner operators because the level of service is so high, and the overall driver performance is superior. This integration allows thousands of active AscendTMS brokers and shippers to post their loads directly to these owner operators, and to easily access this high performing and reliable capacity with one single click.”  

TruckSmarter quickly became the top-rated load board for carriers to use because, in addition to being 100% free, the application offers truck drivers and owners a suite of tools to help them build, manage, and grow their business, including fuel discounts, factoring, and banking services. 

Bernasconi continues, “Our mission is to empower truck drivers’ lives, and by making it easier for quality brokers to post to our load board, we’re able to offer more and better loads for our carriers. And it’s just the beginning. We look forward to future integrations to come that will provide simpler, more cost-effective solutions for brokers and carriers.”
