The technology that you use in your everyday operations functions like the heart of your business. It keeps information flowing and ensures your team and partners have the information they need to make the best decisions in real-time. With Trucker Tools’ newest integration partnership, we’ve teamed up with Simple Truck ELD to bring ELD-based load tracking to freight brokers and 3PLs that use Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity platform. This integration partnership lets brokers and 3PLs see ELD-based load tracking data in real-time in the Smart Capacity interface. The integration also offers another load tracking option to drivers and carriers who aren’t able to use mobile apps for tracking or prefer ELD-based load tracking over app-based load tracking.

About Simple Truck ELD

The FMCSA-compliant Simple Truck ELD was developed by the team that created SimpleTruckTax.com, a web-based tax-filing tool that is helping more than 500,000 independent owner operators file Heavy Highway Use Vehicle and excise taxes. With the Simple Truck ELD, it’s easy to track, manage and share accurate records of duty status. This cloud-based ELD allows you to connect and manage your device with a mobile app that’s available for smart phones and tablets through both the iOS and Android app markets. All that is required to set up the Simple Truck ELD is the ELD device and Simple Truck ELD’s mobile app. Simple Truck ELD offers five different monthly subscription options with differing levels of reporting detail. Monthly subscription costs range from $6.99 to $60. The Simple Truck ELD comes with 24 hours/day and seven days/week support.

Integration with Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity Load Tracking

The partnership between Trucker Tools and Simple Truck ELD gives freight brokers and third-party logistics providers using Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity platform the option to digitally track loads using data from the Simple Truck ELD. This can be helpful when a carrier or driver is unable or reluctant to use the Trucker Tools driver app for real-time visibility purposes. Tracking the load with the Simple Truck ELD allows you to gain visibility of the load without requiring use of app-based tracking, providing you with a second option to offer to your carriers and drivers.

The integration partnership between Trucker Tools and Simple Truck ELD gives truckers and carriers an alternative to tracking loads for a freight broker or logistics company that uses Trucker Tools for load tracking. If for some reason you or your drivers are unable to use the Trucker Tools mobile app for tracking a load digitally, you have the option to use the Simple Truck ELD for real-time visibility instead. As a carrier, this option lets you meet the needs of brokers and 3PLs, while providing an alternative choice to drivers. Trucker Tools’ integration partnership with Simple Truck ELD is one of more than 70 integration partnerships we maintain with ELD providers across the industry.

How Drivers and Carriers Can Save Time and Reduce Costs with Trucker Tools

Even if you don’t use Trucker Tools app for load tracking purposes as a trucker, you can still use the app’s 17+ other tools and features to save time and reduce operating costs. Trucker Tools’ free driver app helps drivers like you find the cheapest fuel on your route, as well as nearby weigh scales, parking, truck stops, rest areas and more. You also can use the app to search for and book loads with your favorite brokers, balance your axle weights, and find truck washes, food and the best route to your next destination. Instead of using five or six different smart phone apps during your day, use Trucker Tools’ free driver app to quickly get the information that you need so you can get back to driving and earning.

Trucker Tools’ free software platform for carriers provides some of the same tools and features in the mobile app to fleets. This free, web-based portal can be used by carrier dispatchers to search for and book loads and reloads with freight brokers and third party logistics companies. Using Trucker Tools’ carrier platform in your operations reduces the time that dispatch spends answering calls and other messages from brokers and 3PLs that are searching for capacity.
