Logistics veterans John Labrie and Sean Devine have launched buytruckload.com, a new Chicago-based service in the transportation procurement space, initially offering a search to help shippers find prospective carriers and a survey to improve internal processes.
The carrier search leverages a database of every carrier and broker in the U.S. and supports search by equipment, size, location, age, safety, authority and more. Registration for the site is free.
Before founding buytruckload.com, Labrie was president of CRST Expedite, president of Con-way Freight, executive vice president of strategy and enterprise operations at Con-way and president of Con-way Freight Western.
Devine was previously 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.
