Small trucking companies make up the vast majority of trucks on the road, many with 10 trucks or less in the fleet. At these small trucking companies, employees often play many different roles; searching for freight to keep their fleet utilization high, performing administrative tasks, and driving which means they are often on-the-move, away from a computer, causing them to miss out on potential freight opportunities.
What if you could make deliveries faster and more efficient, manage your fleet in one central place, and adapt to changes and challenges in real time?

How Marketplace in the sennder app works

How Assignment in the sennder app works
Assignments are the dedicated freight loads that a carrier receives from sennder on their contracted lanes. A dispatcher would need to accept/reject these assignments within the indicated period of time.
To accept the assignment the dispatcher needs to navigate to the assignment section where a list of all the open assignments will be available; they can view the order details and then press on the accept/reject button. After this acceptance or rejection, the order will no longer be available in this list of assignments.
