In our monthly link round-up, combat fear of missing out by checking out these summaries of Trucker Tools’ top blogs from the last month.
Happy New Year from the Trucker Tools team! December is always a busy month, which is why we’ve rounded up our best blogs of the month for you right here! We closed out 2019 and the decade on a high note with business tips from flatbed owner-op Brian Phillips that will keep your trucking business rolling in the new year. Also on tap: the release of the new version of the Trucker Tools driver app, best practices for temp-controlled loads and Real Women in Trucking’s advocacy for safer training environments for new truckers.
The biggest change in our newest, soon to be released version of Trucker Tools’ driver app is the way that it looks. Based on feedback from you and your fellow truckers, we’ve changed how information is displayed so that it’s easy to navigate between tools and get the information that you need as quickly as possible when you’re on the road.
Trucker Tools recently spoke with Brian Phillips, a flatbed owner-operator who works for RiverDog Express in its Open Deck trucking division. We spoke with Brian to find out more about the videos he’s creating for his fellow truckers and the tools that he uses in his own business, including Trucker Tools’ driver app.
A temperature deviation of just two degrees can potentially decrease the shelf life of freight by up to 50 percent.
