This Oct. 26-28, the Trucker Tools team will join more than 400 of North America’s leading freight brokerages and third party logistics companies for the Transportation Intermediaries Association’s annual Technovations Conference held this year in Phoenix. This three-day event at the J.W. Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa will include multiple technology showcase presentations, TECH TALKS, an exhibit hall, networking events, and speaker presentations designed to help you implement, understand and master the technology you use in your logistics business.
Trucker Tools is a sponsor of this year’s Technovations Conference and members of our executive team will be providing a live demonstration of our Smart Capacity software platform for freight brokers and 3PLs attending the conference. The Trucker Tools team also will be available in the exhibit hall throughout the event.
Trucker Tools’ Chief Technology Officer Murali Yellepeddy and Vice President of Sales Kyler Ford together will lead a live demonstration of Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity software platform for freight brokers and 3PLs as part of the conference’s Showcase 1 on Thursday, Oct. 27, 9:15-10:30 a.m. MST in Grand Sonoran A-E.
The live demo will highlight how Smart Capacity helps freight brokers and 3PLs like you locate and secure truck capacity faster and in real-time. The Smart Capacity platform uses real-time transaction data from Trucker Tools’ technology platforms and GPS-based truck location data to provide you with accurate capacity data you can rely on, driving faster and more effective decision making. To date, nearly 2 million drivers and 250,000 carriers are in Trucker Tools’ truck capacity network.
Smart Capacity also includes real-time load tracking capabilities that can be integrated with your shippers’ visibility platforms, automating load tracking and reducing the number of check calls your team must make. Book It Now®, Trucker Tools’ digital load booking technology that allows carriers and owner operators to book your loads instantly through the Trucker Tools app and free carrier platform, also will be showcased as part of the demo.
The conference will include three different technology Showcases, as well as unique educational sessions developed by TIA’s Technology Committee. Topics covered in the educational sessions will include sales and marketing management, creative problem solving, measuring technology ROI, autonomous and electric vehicles, risk management and security, supply chain innovation, the role of tech in hybrid work, and the impact automation can have on your bottom line. Featured speakers will include TIA President and CEO Anne Reinke, Schneider Logistics VP of Broker Operations Ben Schuchart, GlobalTranz CTO Russ Felker, Trinity Logistics President Sarah Ruffcorn, Kingsgate Logistics Solutions Architect Paul Curee and many others. The first annual TIA Shark Tank session will feature tech startups making their pitches to an expert panel.
