CHICAGO, IL - August 12, 2020 - Barchart, a leading provider of market data and technology services to the financial, media and commodity industries, has announced a new exclusive partnership with BulkLoads.com, the largest online bulk freight-matching marketplace. Through this partnership, the two firms will collaborate on product development initiatives, including the integration of BulkLoad.com’s transportation management system (TMS) into Barchart’s commodity trading platform, cmdtyView Pro, allowing shippers to manage their entire load cycle in one simplified and interactive front-end.
“Partnering with BulkLoads.com, the largest online bulk freight marketplace, helps both firms expand their relationships with grain merchandisers and provides users with better workflows,” says Barchart’s Head of Strategy Keith Petersen. "We’re focused on providing the best tools for grain merchandisers, and incorporating BulkLoads.com into our products does exactly that. We plan to continue to grow our relationship with a focus on data sets and integrations that are focused on improved user experience."
"In addition to providing the largest bulk truck freight marketplace to procure carriers, our BulkTMS platform provides traders and merchandisers a simple way to manage everything to do with the movement of their commodities. From sending load offers that can be negotiated or automatically booked by carriers in the BulkLoads mobile app to viewing digital tickets and grading details in real-time, the BulkTMS platform makes the load lifecycle more efficient and collaborative. With over 6,000+ carriers already using the BulkLoads mobile app, we're leading the digital transformation of bulk freight and are excited to have Barchart as a partner," says Jared Flinn, Operating Partner at BulkLoads.com. "By leveraging Barchart's existing grain accounting integrations, data scientists, developers and cmdtyView trading platform we're taking things to the next level. It's a win-win for everyone."
