Cargo Chief, which provides the carrier management and sourcing platform C4, announced Aug. 12 that Bob Voltmann, outgoing CEO of the Transportation Intermediaries Association, has joined Cargo Chief’s board of directors as an adviser.

“Cargo Chief really helps traditional freight brokers with technology and data to democratize any technology advantage that mega brokers may have,” said Voltmann. “I’m excited to help a leading vendor that is providing technology that will enable thousands of brokerages to be more efficient and competitive.”

The announcement also said Cargo Chief’s RoadOne LogisticSolutions has adopted a new C4 feature called “Projects,” which finds new load opportunities. Most brokerages, the company said, receive daily load lists from any number of shippers and select a subset of the loads — overlooking the rest.

But C4 prioritizes those ignored loads. It has a network of more than 530,000 carriers.

“As the impacts of Covid-19 pushed through the logistics industry, we started to notice an uptick in usage around our Projects feature. After a few iterations, we were able to deliver a tool that focuses on the problem that every company faces, how to solve for lost volume and revenue,” said Chris Arredondo, co-founder at Cargo Chief. “Having a platform that lets you take ownership of all load opportunities, not only helps drive revenue, but also gives you the tools to sell to carriers year-round as most brokerages do with customers.” — Transport Topics
