  • Is newtrul a digital freight matching platform?
  • Why are we seeing the rise of these types of platforms?
  • Load boards have been around for years, what’s the difference between what newtrul is, or any other digital freight matching platform, and a load board?
  • What is “meaningful carrier density” and why is that really the phrase the industry should focus on when it comes to building out their carrier network to consistently find capacity?
  • Why did newtrul about an integration strategy early on and is this how all freight technology companies should be thinking moving forward?
  • Is there a point where automation isn’t always necessary and human execution is still critical? Does automation have its place, and where is that?
  • What’s next beyond digital freight enablement tools? What will the future look like in say a year from now when the market is data-rich, automate, and hyper-efficient? Will we all no longer need to solve anything?
