New digital solution for farm shipments connects grains to empty trucks

31.01.2019 23:16 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of now, Indigo Ag Inc. is looking to shake up the world of agricultural freight with a digital platform that could energize the thousands of unused trucks sitting on farms, Bloomberg reports. As to the report, the smartphone-accessible platform called Transport connects shippers to carriers and aims to fix inefficiencies in moving agricultural products around the country. Reportedly, presently most US farmers own trucks, but only use them within planting and harvest. For much of the year, thats effectively an unused fleet sitting on farms across the country, and an asset that farmers arent taking full advantage of. For transportation companies, they need optimized routes so that theyre not delivering loads and driving back empty. To solve that problem, companies currently call up brokers who then eat into 20 percent of profits. The platforms release comes at a time when the freight industry is seeing a shortage in drivers and increased costs. Putting those unused farmers trucks and new drivers into play could add 10 percent to 20 percent to capacity, Perry said. As of now, the US freight industry ships about 8 milliard tons of goods a year, with agriculture comprising 10% and representing US$7.5 milliard as transportation fees.
