The XSC Loadmaster Edge will enable truckers and trucking companies to have constant access to the XS Capacity server based software platform.

XS Capacity CEO and Founder, Steve Krubinski stated, "After seeing the enormous opportunity that The PC Edge brings to the table as far as in cab communications and revolutionizing the way drivers get real time load availability information from any system, I was more than excited about the opportunity to partner with The PC Edge in the creation of the XSC Loadmaster Edge and feel that the combination of our software platform for Internal Interactive Load Boards for shippers along with our open market place for the smaller shippers provides significant benefits for the driver on the road and the shipper looking to move more freight at a reasonable rate."

About XS Capacity:
XS Capacity utilizes both commercial freight carriers and private fleets from manufacturers and large commercial distribution companies. They encourage DOT Authorized Private Fleets to join. These private fleets, owned by manufacturers and distributors, are looking for backhaul to cover their return trip. This drives down the cost of their primary business line by reducing the expenses associated with shipping their goods. XS Capacity qualifies each and every carrier requesting to join our network. They are truly an online marketplace of DOT authorized carriers. Do not trust your freight to Non DOT Authorized "Hillbilly Jim" and his cousins moving companies, insure you have a DOT authorized carrier. They monitor our network of freight carriers by utilizing both in-house quality surveys and DOT verifications. Always verify that the carrier you are dealing with is DOT authorized. XS Capacity is Environmentally Friendly. XS Capacity focuses on filling trailers that would normally be driving the roads empty, thereby helping reduce the pollution created by extra trailers on the road.
