With Lane Alerts, you can create lanes to be notified when a shipper in Emerge is quoting a similar lane and is looking for new partners!

Please note: If one person in your company is already a partner to a shipper, no other person in your company will be able to provide rates to that shipper via the lane alert tool. This is to avoid any internal conflicts and protect both parties.

Also note: Lane Alerts are only for FTL
