With the goal of saving shippers money, transportation executives Sean Devine and John Labrie, using their extensive experience, have founded buytruckload.com and, in turn, introduced a new, innovative way to purchase transportation. This fully automated freight brokerage service is the first of its kind. John’s experience includes President of CRST Expedite, President of Con-way Freight, EVP of Strategy and Enterprise Operations at Con-way, and President of Con-way Freight Western. Sean was Vice President of Strategy and Transportation Purchasing at Echo Global Logistics, Vice President of Pricing and Engineering at Con-way Freight, Vice President of Enterprise Engineering at Con-way, Vice President of Consulting at Emptoris (now IBM) and Vice President of Products and Services at CombinetNet. This potent combination of procurement strategy expertise and pricing know-how have helped create the backbone of buytruckload.com. Here shippers can search (for free) to find prospective carriers, get instant rate quotes, and book van, flatbed, and refrigerated loads on the spot. In addition, there is a procurement assessment survey that helps users determine and improve their internal processes.
