Here's how Indigo Transport works

STEP 1: LOADS ARE AGGREGATED

The Indigo Transport app displays grain loads that growers and shippers have communicated.

STEP 2: CARRIERS ENROLL

Carriers register on the easy-to-use Indigo Transport app and get approved.

STEP 3: CARRIERS ACCEPT LOAD

Enrolled carriers find grain loads in their area based on preferences and accept work directly in the Indigo Transport app.

STEP 4: GRAIN DELIVERED

Carriers deliver the load, complete the job tracking progress in the app, and are paid quickly after all appropriate load details are received.

Open Quotation MarkIndigo Transport is flexible and can give us what we want. Our logistics account manager has been very helpful. A lot of times, customers call and ask about loads over and over again, but, with Indigo Transport, I got one email with all of the information I needed.Close Quotation Mark

Open Quotation MarkConsistency is the biggest issue today for agricultural transport – we need steady work. I like how Indigo Transport handles the business for us. When they find something in the area, I get the whole contract at once. With other companies, there are a lot of hoops you have to jump through to get the ball rolling. I didn’t have to go through all that with Indigo Transport – the account manager did exactly what he said he was going to do.Close Quotation Mark

Frank Williams

Carrier, Spain to Maine Hauling, Mississippi

Open Quotation MarkI believe that Indigo Marketplace represents the future of grain trading. The current system is inefficient and doesn’t leverage technologies that are widely used across other industries. The tools for building a truly digital system are available — change is long overdue. Indigo has the resources to lead this change and is creating a future where growers can earn more and buyers can bring high quality, IP grain to end-users. Close Quotation Mark
