How Can it Help My Business?

What is a Freight Brokerage Software and How Can it Help My Business?

Freight brokerage software is specifically designed for freight brokers, who act as intermediaries between shippers who need to transport goods and carriers who transport these goods. It helps them do their job more accurately and efficiently, serving as a control center for managing the movement of goods from one place to another.

How exactly does it help? This system typically includes capabilities for matching shipments with carriers, managing carrier relationships, handling freight transactions, and facilitating communication between shippers and carriers.

Freight brokerage software is often part of a larger freight management system, which Devox can also help you develop. Leverage the full scale of these operations, or start smaller by addressing one of your business vectors.

Services We Provide

Freight Brokerage Software Development Services We Provide

Whether you work in maritime logistics, operate land freights, deliver goods via air require anything else, Devox can make your freight-related operations better. See what we can develop.

  • Load Board and Freight Matching Software

    Load boards are online marketplaces where shippers and brokers post loads that need to be transported, and carriers can find loads to haul. A custom one will connect freight carriers with shippers more easily thanks to features like filtering options for specific routes, cargo types, and pricing. Make the process of finding and securing freight loads efficient for carriers, while helping shippers and brokers quickly find available transportation options.

  • Freight Auction and Bidding Platforms

    Developing specialized online systems where shippers or freight brokers can post their loads, and carriers can bid on them. You’ll facilitate competitive bidding, which can help your staff secure lower rates for their shipments, eventually getting competitive rates and quick load matching.

  • Freight Brokerage Software Integration, Scaling or Migration

    We can integrate your existing or newly bought FBS with your other logistics software, primarily with the CRM system to manage interactions with shippers and carriers. Alternatively, we can upgrade your software from the legacy stack, ensuring there’s no more downtime.

  • Freight Brokerage Dispatch Software

    Streamline the dispatching process of shipping operations: track the progress of shipments and reach a particular focus on the operational aspects, such as routing and scheduling. Devox will include functionalities for monitoring the real-time location of shipments, offering insights into when they are likely to reach their destination.

Development Process

Our Freight Brokerage Software Development Process

Devox's freight brokerage software is born from following the best software development practices. Adhering to the classic Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), the Devox team emphasizes individual customization at each stage of our collaboration.

01.

01. Requirement Analysis

We start by talking to your team to understand exactly what you need. The Devox account and project managers listen to your logistics managers and figure out the main things you need the software to do, what problems it should solve, and who will be using it. Based on this, we decide what features it should have and how it should work with other systems you use.

02.

02. UI/UX Design

Next, our designers get to work. They focus on making the software easy to use (based on UX research) and good-looking, making sure it fits with your brand. They start with black-and-white wireframes and then develop them into a full design for both computers and mobiles, if you need it.

03.

03. Architecture and Development

After deciding what the software should do, we pick the best technology for it. Our team then designs how the software will be structured and organizes the data it will use. With this plan in place, we start coding. We build both the behind-the-scenes part (like servers and databases) and the part you interact with (the user interface). We make sure to build the software in a way that makes it easy to maintain and able to handle your business's growth.

04.

04. Integration

Once the main parts of the software are built, we start connecting it with other systems you already use, like your customer management or inventory systems. We also add any extra tools you need, like GPS tracking for your shipments. This step makes sure the new software works well with your existing tools. We then test everything thoroughly to make sure it all works together smoothly.

05.

05. Testing and QA

Before we make the software live, we do a lot of tests to find and fix any issues. We conduct Unit Testing to check individual components for functionality, Integration Testing to ensure different parts of the software work together seamlessly, and Performance Testing to oversee the software’s performance under various conditions. Then, we move on to Security Testing, making sure all data is securely handled and protected. The last one is User Acceptance Testing (UAT), which involves end-users to test and provide feedback on the software.

06.

06. Deployment

Having made sure the system works as intended, we prepare the environment (server or cloud-based platform) and deploy it there, having prepared a backup and recovery setup. If we need to, we conduct data migration from your old software.

07.

07. Ongoing Maintenance and Updates

Following the deployment, our team monitors the software’s performance, ready to address any bugs, respond to queries, and execute regular updates or scale the system as per your requirements. Whether it involves adding new features, implementing security patches, or meeting emerging compliance standards, our ongoing support ensures your software remains robust and effective.
