SmartHop Partners with Loadsmart Load Board to Support Small Carriers Ahead of Holiday Rush

Dec 1, 2020

New Partnership will Broaden Networks and Enhance Offerings for Drivers

MIAMI, December 1, 2020 — SmartHop, the total dispatch solution that enables businesses to truck smarter not harder, today announced its strategic partnership with Loadsmart load board, a leading digital freight and technology company.

The news follows SmartHop’s rapid growth in the last few months with an expanded executive team and $4.5M seed funding round, and comes at a time when high transportation demand is up against a historic driver shortage.

“Spot market demands are increasing, and with the holidays ahead, small carriers and independent drivers are operating in a unique environment,” said Guillermo Garcia, CEO and co-founder of SmartHop. “Through this partnership, we are bringing more load opportunities for drivers who want to play between the spot and contract market.”

Loadsmart’s load board advanced freight technology simplifies the way shippers move their products. While the company has a robust carrier network, its truck base skews towards carriers with 50 or more trucks.

This integration with SmartHop’s platform extends the reach of Loadsmart’s users while fueling SmartHop’s offerings. Loadsmart’s Load Offer API enables small carriers and owner operators to see, review and book loads that suit their needs with greater ease, ultimately lowering barriers to entry for new drivers and streamlining time-consuming and expensive processes for established owner-operators.

“SmartHop’s strong carrier base largely consists of owner operators and fleets with ten or fewer trucks,” said Hunter Yaw, vice president of product at Loadsmart. “This partnership allows us to diversify our carrier base and reach new, quality drivers.”
