Soon to be released by Loadsurfer Corp. is a freight-matching pipeline "designed to change the face of the load matching industry," the company says. The new system — called Load Surfer — combines traditional freight-matching logic with other tools. It will provide unlimited freight and equipment matching along with Equifax credit reports and ProMiles mileage for one monthly fee. A free trial will be available in May.

Visitors to ExpoCam 2009 in Montreal got the first look at the program.

A feature unique to Load Surfer is the TMS (Transportation Management System) Partners program. In addition to a traditional standalone web application, users of TMS programs will be able to post, edit and remove their loads and equipment to Load Surfer automatically. In the fall of 2009, a second integration will be released that will let TMS users to retrieve their leads and bring them back into their dispatching systems, virtually eliminating the need to use two separate programs to run their operations.

Four TMS companies — Axon Development Corporation, Infosite Technologies Inc, Millogiciel Inc., and Trans+Plus Systems Corp. — have agreed to offer Load Surfer as a standard integration effective immediately. An integration document is also available that makes it simple for other TMS providers or companies operating customized applications to integrate their systems to Load Surfer.

Load Surfer is an open platform which means that users can customize how they use the data from the pipeline.
