Test Drive is the "eHarmony" of trucking - introducing shippers and carriers that are the ideal fit. Our platform ensures shippers and carriers don’t waste valuable time and reaffirms mutual compatibility. At any time, the shipper has the opportunity to directly contract any carrier that Test Drive helps them locate.
Most people “test drive” their car before purchasing it.
We help shippers “test drive” carriers before contracting them.
Test Drive is the Anti-broker. In fact, brokers don’t like us very much.
Brokers aren’t inherently bad, they're simply leveraging information shippers and carriers don't have. On the flip side, Test Drive shares all information, becoming a strategic versus reactionary resource. This bridges the gap between carriers and shippers creating a win-win scenario for all parties.
Test Drive is a no-brainer for us. You help us locate carriers rather than preventing us to do so as most brokers do through back solicitation clauses. Test Drive just makes so much sense if its important to grow relationships with asset based carriers.
We were struggling to find good direct business without a sales force and found ourselves hauling more and more broker freight. We approached Test Drive to help change that - and 6 months later we are doing direct business with multiple new customers and growing contracted business by the week.
Test Drive brings a strategic backing into the shipper/carrier relationship without the many calls from carriers. Adversely, brokers by the very nature of their existence can only be tactical.
The Test Drive team has been essential in helping our company improve delivery performance and carrier relationships. Its a collaborative approach, where they understand our needs and find carriers looking for exactly what we have. We ve been able to form direct relationships with top tier asset based carriers we may otherwise not have found, in addition to niche carriers. I view the Test Drive team as an extension of our own staff.
I’ve had a great experience with Test Drive. It is truly nothing like anything I’ve seen in the industry. They’ve helped us quickly gain capacity from carriers in areas of the country we needed help. We’ve then been able verify which carriers we want to onboard directly. My preference is to “test drive” any carrier before contracting them now.
Test Drive has introduced me customers with the exact lanes I need and it has been an absolutely win-win for both my company and the shipper. Without Test Drive it wouldn’t have happened - I never would have been able to gain direct access to this business through a broker or on my own.
