How we are transforming trucking

Loadshop™ – a digital marketplace powered by the logistics experts at KBX – is changing the way shippers move freight and carriers book loads by providing transparency to both sides of the transaction. In a traditional broker-based system, that visibility is nonexistent, with many brokers placing the value of their commissions before the needs of their customers. The Loadshop marketplace eliminates the inefficiency of traditional brokerage by removing this middle entity from the equation and directly connecting qualified carriers and shippers.

Pricing Model

The Loadshop digital marketplace operates on shipper-set rates, where shippers set their own price per load and share that price directly to the market. The system then aggregates these loads for its network of qualified carriers, allowing carriers to choose loads with very clearly defined payouts. Only when these matches are confirmed does Loadshop collect a nominal fee from the shipper.
