Trucker Tools by the Numbers: For Brokers

At Trucker Tools, we specialize in delivering solutions that make brokers, 3PLs, and carriers more efficient in their daily operations. This dedication to creating practical, easy to use solutions that automate daily tasks using leading-edge technology has led to widespread adoption of both our free driver app and Smart Capacity real-time carrier capacity and relationship management platform.

Here are five statistics about Trucker Tools’ solutions, who uses them and why it matters:

130,000+ Unique Carriers Use Smart Capacity

Carriers only embrace technology that works. Because Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity platform delivers on its promise of greater efficiency, automation, and predictive load booking, carriers have embraced it. With Smart Capacity, you can negotiate prices and communicate with carrier dispatchers in a matter of seconds. The Smart Capacity carrier network provides you with instant capacity when you need it, greatly reducing the time spent on phone calls and emails to carriers.

90% of Load Matching Initiated by Carriers

Current Trucker Tools’ usage statistics show that carriers overwhelmingly initiate load matching. Why? Because Trucker Tools makes it easy for carriers to plan ahead and to book reloads. Carriers can find the freight that they want to haul and increase their efficiency by booking loads in advance through Smart Capacity/the driver app. This helps you spend less time procuring capacity and allows you to spend more time on providing exemplary customer service to your shippers.

60% More Load Matching Success with Owner-Operators

Because of overhead costs, owner-operators may be viewed as less likely to purchase and implement leading technology-based solutions that increase productivity. At Trucker Tools, we find that when technology works well, owner-operators are, in fact, early adopters. Book It Now, our predictive freight matching tool within the driver app was developed based on feedback from truckers and brokers. Book It Now empowers owner-operators to negotiate prices and proactively book loads within the driver app, reducing the time that your brokerage spends seeking out capacity.  

750,000+ Truckers Use Trucker Tools’ Driver App

When you use Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity, you gain access to a 750,000-strong network of truckers who use the Trucker Tools’ driver app. The Trucker Tools’ driver app provides truckers with information on weather, traffic, repair shops, rest stops, weigh scales, parking, detention and more. The driver app also provides GPS-enabled freight visibility for you, eliminating the need for check-calls. When your freight is hauled by a Trucker Tools driver app user, you always know where your freight is located.

97% Freight Tracking Accuracy

Trucker Tools’ driver app uses the driver’s smartphone GPS technology to track the exact location of each truck. You can watch the truck’s progress and see if there are any delays due to traffic, weather or other unforeseen circumstances within the Smart Capacity user interface. This allows you to proactively alert shippers and receivers of potential delays.

Choptank Transport, a leading 3PL that specializes in perishables, began using Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity platform and driver app approximately two years ago. Since adopting both tools, the 3PL is achieving 97 percent freight tracking accuracy, an increase of more than 50 percent. Carrier adoption of the driver app and Trucker Tools’ freight tracking technology has increased by 289 percent. According to the company’s CEO, operational efficiency also has increased as a result.
