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.

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.
