"Detention is a waste of time and resources for all parties in freight - carriers, shippers, brokers, end-customers, etc. By helping to eliminate detention, everyone wins with Baton."

- Craig Fuller, CEO at FreightWaves

"We’re always thinking ahead, and prioritize efficiency gains and driver satisfaction regardless of market conditions. Dwell was causing massive inefficiencies for CRST, and with Baton we can now capture more freight, balance out our network and improve our drivers’ experience to our customers’ delight."

How it works

1

Set Up Trailer Pool

Establish a trailer pool at a Baton drop zone in an area where you want to eliminate detention. There are currently four drop zone locations live in Los Angeles.

2

Tender to Baton

3

Visibility While Baton Delivers

Live automated updates and paperwork sent over API, EDI, or email as Baton handles the local P&D.
