The company has been arranging transportation jobs between shippers and motor carriers since early this year on a trial basis and is now available for all interested users.
Cargomatic allows truckers to post available capacity and shippers to post loads. The technology platform currently focuses on short-haul moves within metro areas, including shuttle runs between seaports and local distribution centers. Cargomatic is now facilitating truck moves at the Port of Los Angeles, where several terminals are implementing “hot stacks” that don’t require truckers to pick up designated containers. The system is increasing efficiency by reducing the need to hunt through piles of containers for the trucker’s load.

Shippers already using Cargomatic in New York, including Amazon, Boxed Wholesale, Capacity LLC and BNSF Logistics, the company said.
