Transfix, Inc. ("Transfix") today announced a partnership with Highway, a carrier identification solution designed to reduce fraud and supercharge digital bookings. The integration aims to increase transparency and efficiency during the carrier compliance and onboarding processes.
"Our partnership with Highway gives us quick access to curated key information about carriers in our network and those seeking to join it by helping us to evaluate qualifications and maintain access to vetted fleets while simultaneously streamlining the onboarding process," said Tony Tzeng, Chief Product Officer. "By bringing together the world's best shippers and carriers, and connecting them in a secure, verified way, Transfix continues to deliver a transparent, trusted, and sustainable freight ecosystem."
Highway improves efficiency by replacing the standard practice of vetting a carrier through multiple sites. By integrating Highway's Carrier Identity Engine into the Transfix Carrier App (formerly known as Transfix FMS), both carriers with and without an existing Highway account will benefit from a faster insurance review and onboarding experience. As a result, we expect to have access to a more reliable and robust carrier network, as well as an increased level of service and support.
"We are excited about working with Transfix. From the early days of working with their team they challenged us to raise the bar. We are grateful for their early impact, their trust in our team, and we are excited about the future with Transfix," said Michael Caney, CCO of Highway.
