Our goal is to provide Transport Brokers & Dispatchers a simple freight management platform that seamlessly collects and distributes shipping updates through text and e-mail.
What we do
In the transport industry, one of the biggest challenges is keeping customers up to date on the status of their shipments. It’s even more challenging trying to collect those statuses from dispatchers and truck drivers.
FreightUpdates.com allows freight brokers to easily collect status updates directly from the truck driver, as well as send those updates to clients and customers.
FreightUpdates was created by myself, Robert Warren, and NO. I am not a computer guru! I’m a Car Carrier, turned Transport Broker, turned Entrepreneur. I first got started in the auto transport industry over 10 years ago by becoming the managing partner of a auto transport company.
When I first joined the company, we only had one 3-car hotshot and one 8-car hauler. Within 2 years we grew our fleet to five 10-car stingers. After 4 years in business and learning everything that I could about the trucking side of the industry, I sold my portion of the business and opened my own auto transport brokerage. After a decade in the industry and countless trials and errors, I created FreightUpdates so Brokers & Dispatchers can easily track shipments, update customers and manage freight all from one platform.

Brokering cars is where I fell in love with the transport industry. There was something about interacting with the customer and selling them on my services and expertise, then setting up a qualified carrier and following the transport all the way through, that really gave me a sense of business that I was searching for. When I first started out, I used to buy transport leads and I would cold-call and email customers all day-everyday. Then I moved on to building my client list. It was not easy, but I stuck with it and eventually aligned myself with the right people. I expanded from snow-birds, to car collectors, to small car dealerships, to custom tuner shops, to eventually shipping fleets of brand new vehicles for car dealerships all over the country. I even got involved with a private race car circuit where I was coordinating the shipping of race cars to and from race events. Within 2 years my business grew to the point where I had to hire 2 full time dispatchers; then a year later, another dispatcher and an office assistant. Before we knew it, we were doing over 4 million dollars a year in business.
