There are 2 ways to search for loads in the Trucker Tools app. The first, is by clicking on the loads icon on the opening screen.
You can also search for loads by going to the menu in the top left corner of your screen.
You will see a list view of all the loads near your current location.
To customize your search, click on “click here to modify your search” at the top of the list.
Enter your pickup location by clicking on “current location” and entering your pickup location. For this example, we use New York.
Next, you can put in your ETA for picking up the load. Click on the date and time which will bring up a pop up for you to edit your ETA. To change your ETA, click on the date and time and use the scrolling wheel for each to set your ETA. Then hit confirm.
You can specify which destinations you would prefer to haul the load to. To edit this, click on the “Preferred Destinations” section. You can see a list of “zones” and Canadian states. Each zone is clarified by state in parenthesis underneath the zone name.
To choose your preferred destinations, click the drop down for the zone and turn on the switch next to each state you prefer to haul loads to. Then click “close” in the top left corner.
