Direct Connections. Direct Freight. Direct Payment
Our goal is to help you take back control of your freight and have more reliable on-demand capacity. Connect with independent owner operators and/or shippers and negotiate with them directly without needing a broker. Our platform enables you to create your own private network of vetted independent carriers under contract without any middleman.
Performance Assessment Score
Carrier/Driver Performance Assessment
As part of its end-to-end supply chain management platform, LaneAxis is implementing a groundbreaking “Performance Assessment Score” for all carriers in its network. For decades, a lack of data-backed performance metrics have prevented many shippers from contracting directly with small and independent carriers – 97% of the industry.
The LaneAxis Performance Assessment Score will mirror a traditional consumer credit score – utilizing immutable load-level data to generate a score based on such metrics as on-time delivery rate, dispute claims filed by shippers, accident history, and much more.
This will give shippers the confidence and trust needed to tender loads directly to carriers – without the need for brokers. Top- performing carriers will also benefit by having a data-supported “resume” highlighting their exceptional service.
The Network technology stack leverages load-level, core data to predict and prevent problems before they happen. This includes real-time tracking up to four hours before pickup (configurable), accurate ETAs based on multiple data points, expected loading and unloading times at docks, and much more. 35 data points are quantified and scored. Driver performance data provides shippers with performance and risk assessment metrics. Location-based data provides loading and unloading times. These are key KPIs that affect every shipment and the industry at large. Better data leads to better decisions and lower costs.
LaneAxis’ is the industry leveraging load-level, core data to monitor, score and use intelligent data to drive efficiencies.

“I had my team calling constantly every day to do the checks to find out where folks are. Are they on time? With LaneAxis we know where they are. We can look online. Last year we had $10,000 in delay claims and we can cut that to zero having LaneAxis available for us.”

“Even big-name trucking companies subcontract work to smaller carriers, who can use LaneAxis by leveraging a driver’s smartphone.”
Seven years after LaneAxis published a widely shared and debated story revealing the controversial practice of large trucking companies subcontracting freight to smaller companies in the form of "Purchased Transportation," we revisited the issue and found little has changed.
The Orange County Business Journal - one of the premiere business publications in California - published a feature story on our collaboration with "GTFO It's Vegan" (the largest Vegan wholesaler in the U.S.) to establish a network of warehouses, with a particular focus on cold storage.
Over and over and over and over we at LaneAxis hear horror stories from independent truckers about the treatment they receive at the hands of freight brokers. Recently LaneAxis CEO Rick Burnett spoke on the topic with a tv station in Wyoming.
