BASF, the largest chemical company in the world and Trimac, one of the largest bulk carriers with thousands of tanker trucks in North America, announce an investment in Bulky, the first freight matching consortium to greatly enhance bulk freight logistics. This consortium is in development of a technology platform aligned to the specific requirements facing the bulk industry.

Carriers who join the consortium expect improved fleet utilization and driver retention due to increased visibility of additional loads and a reduced effort to match their fleet within the restrictions of the bulk freight industry. “We are excited about Bulky as a way to greatly enhance the utility of our fleet,” Matt Faure, CEO of Trimac.

Bulk manufacturers and shippers who join the consortium are empowered to make more agile and reliable customer shipments due to newly visible tanker truck capacity, their attributes and last contained. Bulky accelerates its time to market by leveraging the award winning, multi-patented Cargo Chief freight matching technology.

Bulky is an online application for shippers to match their bulk freight loads with available tanker capacity. As an industry consortium, Bulky is founded on strategic partnerships between bulk shippers and their carriers. Bulky enables carriers to upload available capacity in a unique interface designed for bulk truck transportation. An AI-enhanced matching engine pairs capacity with available shipments; considering the unique requirements of bulk shipping in complex industries such as Chemicals. Further information available at
