How AI and Predictive Truckload Pricing Are Impacting Shipping | Episode 16

Predictive Truckload pricing is here, and the logistics industry will never be the same!

In episode 16 of Banyan’s Tire Tracks™ podcast, Patrick Escolas sits down with Dawn Salvucci-Favier, CEO and Chief Product Officer at, to find out how dynamic pricing can help you build a more cost-effective and efficient over-the-road (OTR) shipping operation. They discuss how is transforming traditional Truckload pricing using artificial intelligence (AI), the difference between AI and machine learning (ML), and what you should expect from this technology in the next three to five years.

“Machine learning is about using data to learn the way that a human would learn,” said Salvucci-Favier. “It essentially simulates the intelligence of the human. It’s using data, but a lot more data than humans could ever possibly absorb, in milliseconds. While it might take that broker 20 minutes to an hour or maybe more to come up and price the lane or a few lanes, the AI is doing it in milliseconds.”
