    The index empowers decisions on truckload bid strategies, timing, and awards.  As a result, the Rockfarm Truckload Market Index becomes an essential tool for shippers because it delivers market benchmarks within each truckload lane. This gives you enhanced visibility of the market and serves as a platform to measure the success of your RFP results as well as the execution of your bid strategy.
