Virtual Freight Management (VFM), being a relatively new term, is still open to varying definitions.
Generally speaking, VFM refers to completely cloud-based programs that, at minimum, allow oversight and some level of control over freight movement along the supply-delivery chain.
As pioneers of this concept, LaneAxis™ takes Virtual Freight Management to the ultimate level – delivering not just some cloud-based control and oversight over freight – but total and direct control. This virtual solution gives real power to Shippers, Carriers and Drivers to plot their own logistics strategies and form profitable alliances directly with each other.

Virtual Freight Management System wipes out layers of inefficiency plaguing $700 billion industry
SAN DIEGO, CA – Technology has finally caught up with trucking – with potential far-reaching benefits for the industry, economy, and environment. LaneAxis (http://www.LaneAxis.com), a San Diego-based company, has launched deployment of a virtual freight management system that gives shippers unprecedented end-to-end visibility and control over their freight. The desktop and mobile app delivers real-time analytics and insights that eliminate the need for error-prone manual reporting.
