Where Freight Expenses Really Go. Hint: It’s not the driver
At Keychain we believe there is a fundamental flaw with traditional freight brokerages; they lack the financial interest to provide quick and transparent pricing to freight providers and shippers.
Leading 3PL’s rely heavily on a bevy of resources outside of their control and host boiler rooms full of commission-motivated sales teams. It’s a game of value capture, and they’re extracting all of it.
Currently the 3PL industry mimics a cold-war era travel agency. In order to book a flight you had to engage a travel agent (a broker). Today, however, flights are booked on Hipmunk, Expedia, Priceline, or directly from the airlines themselves. The consumer benefits are clear: purchasing is easy, fast, transparent, and broker-free.
Booking freight should be no different.
Now available in select cities, the future of booking freight starts with Keychain. No more brokers. No more hidden fees. No more long wait times. No more price renegotiation. Keychain passes the savings to you.
Later this month Keychain will release a free lane pricing tool for shippers, drivers, and skeptics alike to leverage however they please. The tool accurately prices 1.6 billion lanes across America in real time, providing transparency with fair freight rates along with what brokers are actually charging.
It’s time for the freight booking industry to move to the 21st century, and Keychain is leading that march.
Sign up now and we’ll notify you when Keychain’s pricing tool is ready for you to use.
