Apexloads is a cloud-based freight marketplace that connects cargo owners with transporters to streamline the freight-truck matching process and facilitate faster Payments.
A load board is a website or platform that connects transporters with cargo owners who need to transport goods. It allows cargo owners to post available loads and transporters can search for and book those loads.
