Loadhitch app looks to make it easier for O/Os to find loads

by Today's Trucking

A new load-matching freight app for owner-operators is coming to the Canadian market, and the company is currently looking to get freight-seeking O/Os on-board.

Loadhitch says it will create a completely digital marketplace for shippers and owner-operators, beginning in September. Because it’s entirely digital, the company says its platform removes operational and administrative burdens that exist with traditional loadboards.

The app allows O/Os to respond to request for quotes from shippers, negotiate rates, sign contracts, and chat directly with shippers. Shippers, meanwhile, deposit payment into a trust account, which is released to the owner-operator upon proof of delivery, ensuring quick payouts.

Loadhitch is in the first phase of its launch, which involves populating carriers and owner-operators onto the app. The second phase in August/September will see shippers begin posting loads. To sign up, visit www.loadhitch.ca and click Contact Us.

  • Good deal for oner oprator like me now we work for over self
    Without any disturbance.
    Thanx to truck industry and thanx canada gov.

  • The only problem i can see with this is that it is a way to start the reduction of freight rates , and causing reputable carriers that have higher costs of operating to start running at a loss. there will not be enough O/O to fill the needs of shippers and this also will delay products from getting to markets. there is a huge downside tot his and that is serious. we finally got our freight rates to a point where we can be profitable now this will start the downward trend again the Carriers and customers will be the biggest loser on this game. just my thoughts.
