FAQs

What is the Indigo Transport platform? How does it work?

The Indigo Transport platform connects a network of carriers to farmers and shippers for flexible and efficient logistics management.

For Farmers

For Carriers

The Indigo Transport platform enables ag carriers to quickly and easily find and confirm loads. Exclusive loads are sourced from Indigo Marketplace, an online grain transaction platform connecting thousands of farmers and grain buyers across the country. Those loads, along with others sourced from third-party partners, are aggregated on the Indigo Transport platform for you to access when you need them. 

To get started, log in to the Indigo Transport Carrier Portal or give our Carrier Desk a call at 1-833-LOAD-HELP to manage your fleet and process your orders with Indigo, all of which have upfront pricing based on destination, trip distance, and season. Once you book and confirm a load, we’ll send you all the details you’ll need for successful delivery. Once you complete delivery, just send us a snapshot of your proof of delivery and we’ll pay you quickly and accurately.

What type of carriers do you work with? What is your vetting process for carriers?

Our platform enables you to work with your regular, trusted carriers, or access our open and active carrier network for surge capacity. Our carriers are locally-based, independent agricultural trucking businesses. Each of our carriers is evaluated for safety, sufficient insurance coverage, and are subject to food safety transportation policies. We employ third-party service providers to vet and monitor every one of our carriers on an ongoing basis.

What type of freight is currently moved via the Indigo Transport platform?

Current freight includes corn, soybeans, wheat, rice, and other non-grain, dry bulk commodity freight that can be transported via hoppers such as salt, gravel, and sand.

Can farmers hire Indigo Transport to deliver grain or other types of freight outside of Indigo Marketplace?
