Loadsmith announced a new partnership with Mastery Logistics that will fuel Loadsmith’s transition into the first fully autonomous trucking company.
To power its nationwide CaaS platform, Loadsmith will deploy Mastery’s MasterMind cloud-based transportation management system (TMS), creating new freight capacity for shippers, more driving jobs, and supply chain resiliency. The new solution creates a more economical transportation network that can potentially help offset current demand.
As part of its fully autonomous strategy, Loadsmith recently secured 350 autonomous trucks through TuSimple and plans to further expand its autonomous fleet. Implementing MasterMind enables Loadsmith to offer its shipping customers transportation options including autonomous middle-mile with power-only first- and last-mile capacity. Using the platform, shippers can track freight and monitor and optimize their transportation strategies in real-time to meet changing needs.
The platform also integrates directly with the Loadsmith carrier mobile app.
“In meeting our technological needs, Mastery offers an out-of-the-box approach to solving optimization and workflow challenges that no one else even comes close to,” said Brett Suma, CEO at Loadsmith. “Their platform makes it easy to integrate all the moving parts required for building a next-generation autonomous transportation network, allowing us to deliver better service and execution to our customers—both shippers and drivers.”
MasterMind TMS provides complete visibility across all modes of transportation, giving shippers full optimization control and the ability to leverage capacity in real-time.
“Partnering with Loadsmith gives us the opportunity to help pioneer the autonomous transportation future but also stretch and strengthen the capabilities of our product,” said Jeff Silver, CEO at Mastery Logistics. “We thrive on solving these complex challenges and look forward to the insights and efficiencies that will emerge from this partnership over time.”
