The final blog in this monthly round-up covers the Great American Trucking Show that was held in Dallas at the end of August.

Trucker Tools’ Visibility Solution Providing Efficiency, Real-time Communication Platform for Shippers, Carriers and Brokers

It’s no secret that freight visibility (also known as load tracking) can optimize operations for efficiency and build positive business relationships for shippers, carriers, and brokers. However, most visibility solutions fail due to low carrier adoption rates, lack of transparency, limited functionality and poor accuracy.

Unlike many freight tracking options in the market today, Trucker Tools’ GPS-enabled freight tracking technology delivers on its promise of real-time, continuous and precise freight tracking, while building trust between shippers, carriers and brokers.

Trucker Tools visibility solution outperforms single-feature, tracking-only technologies by providing:

  • Data Aggregation, Transparency in an Intuitive, Easy-To-Use Interface – for Carriers
  • Greater Operational Efficiency, Accurate Load Arrival Times – for Shippers
  • A Positive Experience for Carrier Partners, Reduction in Check-Calls and Carrier Adoption – for Brokers/3PLs

Trucker Tools Brings Its Popular, Powerful Driver App to GATS 2019

The Trucker Tools team had a blast at the 2019 Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, August 22-24! We gave away gift cards, t-shirts and other swag at our booth and introduced tons of folks to our powerful (and free) mobile driver app. We joined 50,000 trucking professionals and vendors from all over the world at the conference for a whirlwind of educational sessions, exhibits and networking events.

At our GATS exhibition booth, we demoed the Trucker Tools driver app, which is a powerful data aggregator that carriers can use to simplify their daily operations. The driver app provides carriers with information on traffic, weather, parking, Walmart locations, detention time, open loads, rest stops, fuel prices, weigh scales, truck washes, optimal routes and more in a single interface.

Trucker Tools’ CEO/Founder Prasad Gollapalli was joined by several truckers in an educational session to discuss how they use Trucker Tools’ all-in-one driver app to:

  • Streamline daily operations, reduce manual processes.
  • Strengthen broker relationships with repeat business.
  • Increase efficiency with predictive load matching, automated load tracking.
  • Work smarter, not harder using technology that is designed for truckers.
