across the globe. While working as a platoon leader, the
client carried freight from one location to another for
logistics companies. The client also has good experience in
providing training to logistics workers and building
high-performing teams to conduct transportation, maintenance
and shipping operations.

The company is committed to solving the logistics and
transportation problems like rising costs, tighter delivery
windows, poor transparency, capacity constraints, etc., by
building advanced software solutions that automate the process
of freight matching. We are also working in the direction of
providing more online options to brokers and carriers in the
transportation domain for better communication to perform load
transactions faster and get paid easily with zero hassle.
Below are the aspects that were covered as per the client's
needs by the A3logics team. Take a look:
1. Firstly, the client has set expectations with the A3logics
development team to build a powerful and reliable
freight-matching platform that enables load carriers and
brokers to find each other online easily and enter into
agreements for the movement of freight from one place to
another. The idea behind this from the client was to simplify
the life of freight carriers, brokers and shippers by offering
them a powerful load board solution with 24/7 accessibility,
leveraging cutting-edge technology.
2. The client has also made up his mind to create an online
load-board solution that enables brokers/shippers to post
their freight data on the platform in a fully automated
manner, both from the platform and third-party TMS. The
challenge for our development team was to execute and
integrate autoloader functionality in the freight-matching
platform for the convenience of the carriers and shippers.
3. Another challenge was to create a freight platform that is
highly configurable and is available 24/7 for brokers and
shippers to perform freight transactions. The client also
wanted a leaderboard solution that can easily cover a broad
spectrum of freight transactions, right from load post and
load search to fast load upload via file transfer protocol
(FTP). To achieve this, the building of plug-and-play
architecture and support of robust APIs was mandatory.
4. Last but not least, the client was also looking for an
online load-board solution which is highly secure, reliable
and contains a user-friendly interface so that brokers and
shippers can easily search and enter their load details
without being a technology experts.
To serve the client's request of creating an online
freight-matching service platform that enables brokers and
carriers to connect seamlessly with others for performing
freight transactions, the project requirement analysis team
has conducted detailed research to outline a detailed
development strategy in front of the client.
Also, to develop the leaderboard solution with expected
features, it was decided that the freight-matching marketplace
will be built using tools & technologies like Go, Node.js,
Vue.js and Google Cloud platform by the development team.
To enable the automatic load functionality in the digital
leaderboard, our development team has integrated the
autoloader function that enables brokers/shippers to upload
bulk load details using any file format. Our freight-matching
platform extracts the load details automatically from such
bulk freight information to make the load posting task
convenient and easy for shippers/brokers.
Finally, to make the platform configurable and scalable, it
was built using multi-tenant SaaS architecture and hosted on
the Google Cloud Platform. Adding new freight-matching
capabilities and carrying out freight transactions securely
can also be done easily using our user-friendly and reliable
