FreightWaves Chooses Selerity to Provide Real-time Social Intelligence on the Transportation Market

December 18, 2018

Selerity, a workflow automation and data solutions company, announces that FreightWaves, the leading data and content source for the freight market, has chosen Selerity Context to deliver real-time social intelligence from Twitter to its SONAR platform. SONAR, the first dashboard to serve the nearly $1 trillion North American surface freight industry, provides transportation companies and financial speculators with real-time and near-real-time actionable insights on the direction of the freight market.

FreightWaves will use Selerity Context, a contextual search and personalization service, to deliver relevant breaking news and industry updates from Twitter to its freight market client base. Insights include breaking news and sentiment, along with information about market conditions, events, and developments.

“We are very pleased to be working with an industry disruptor like FreightWaves. Leveraging Selerity Context, FreightWaves users will have access to time-sensitive, market-moving information automatically tailored to their interests,” says Ryan Terpstra, CEO and Founder of Selerity.

In addition to social intelligence from Twitter, FreightWaves will also have access to Selerity’s real-time trending topics. When important themes are trending in the market, users will be notified with relevant updates. This includes topics related to secular changes, supply-chain events, investment decisions, freight risk, and more.

“Freight movement is the liquidity that keeps global supply chains moving. Risk and market developments have an immediate impact on participants in the freight industry. Twitter is the world's fastest source of sentiment and market news, providing insights on subjects that range from weather and natural disasters to strikes, public policy, and other breaking stories that will affect the industry. We chose to partner with Selerity because they’ve created industry-specific search algorithms that tailor real-time content based on the interests of our end users,” says Craig Fuller, CEO of FreightWaves. "Selerity was chosen after an exhaustive evaluation of the various providers in the market—Selerity Context delivered the right combination of content processing features with the flexibility for further customization to meet our needs.”
