This paper examines vehicle-cargo matching platform enterprises in China, which play the role of non-truck operating common carriers that are the freight operator by entrusting transportation duties to the actual carrier. We summarize several kinds of operation modes for vehicle-cargo matching: simple vehicle-cargo matching; whole- vehicle system with single loading and multiple unloading; virtual fleet; and integration of whole-vehicle service and carpooling. We selected representative enterprises and analyzed such features as their operation, advantages and disadvantages, profit model, and applications. We compare and analyze those systems.
