with sonar, it's not just information, it's actionable intelligence

SONAR offers insights to both domestic and global data, giving you the chance to view the entire freight market economy in near-real time. SONAR's data is more current and accurate than any other freight intelligence platform in the market. SONAR uses the fastest data sources in each mode. There are hundreds of unique data sources that feed into SONAR, coming from electronic tenders, TMS systems, ELDs, telematics, fuel purchasing systems, truckload carrier accounting systems, customs, and bill of lading data, and many others. 

While SONAR is a platform for freight market indexes, aggregating data across the freight economy, SONAR's secret sauce is in the artificial intelligence layer that generates forecasts with all of the information. This enables us to create actionable insights that can significantly impact your profitability. 

SONAR maps the freight economy, tracking freight movement, contract freight rates, freight market capacity, tender reject rates, and freight spot rates. Carriers, freight brokers, and shippers use SONAR's deep freight rate benchmarking tools to track freight rate performance against competitors and the overall freight market. 

SONAR's transportation rate forecasting platform combines real-time capacity and volume data with multiple factors such as length of haul, rejection rate, freight potential, and economic activity. All of these data points are trained with carrier and freight brokerage financial and operating data, helping the SONAR forecasting model predict how specific decisions will impact profitability.

SONAR is also the only freight intelligence platform that offers data and forecasts across all modes of logistics: trucking, rail, intermodal, maritime, air and warehousing. By tracking the bill of lading and monitoring shipper import activity, SONAR is able to tie containerized imports to truckload and rail moves. All of this data is added to the SONAR logistics forecasting and analytics model.
