Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity: All-in-One Digital Freight Matching, Real-Time Visibility and Carrier Relationship Management Platform
As part of The Future of Supply Chain, Trucker Tools’ CEO Jablonski and CTO Yellepeddy will provide a live demonstration of Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity software platform. The demonstration will highlight the digital freight matching and carrier relationship management capabilities of Smart Capacity. With Smart Capacity, freight brokerage and 3PL teams can locate and secure capacity quickly while eliminating the inefficiencies associated with traditional capacity sourcing methods. Smart Capacity is built on the real-time exchange of data between freight brokers/3PLs looking for capacity and owner operators/fleets searching for loads. With Smart Capacity, your team members can search for in-network and out-of-network capacity by lane, dates, type of load/equipment, weight and other factors in a matter of seconds. Carriers and drivers of your choosing can search for (and book) your loads for free using Trucker Tools’ free carrier platform, which is actively used by more than 195,000 small and mid-sized carriers, and Trucker Tools’ driver app, which has been downloaded more than 1.6 million times.
In addition to providing you with more efficient capacity searches, Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity facilitates long-term relationship building with owner operators and fleets of your choosing. This powerful capability can be the cornerstone for scaling your business and raising your profit margins. With Smart Capacity, your team can first search for capacity from already-onboarded or preferred drivers and carriers to establish repeat business with specific carriers. You also can release premium loads to specific drivers and carriers to incentivize them to continue running your freight. Adding Trucker Tools’ Book-It-Now® to the mix allows carriers and owner operators of your choosing to view and book your loads 24 hours/day and seven days/week via the Trucker Tools’ driver app and carrier platform.
Trucker Tools’ Founder and Chief Customer Office
To Appear on FreightWavesTV
Trucker Tools’ Founder and Chief Customer Officer Gollapalli will be appearing on FreightWaves TV as part of The Future of Supply Chain summit. Gollapalli will discuss the importance of carrier relationships and how technology can be used to establish and augment these carrier relationships for the long-term. As Gollapalli stated in a recent webinar with FreightWaves, approximately 90 percent of capacity is provided by small fleets of 20 trucks or fewer or independent owner operators, yet most technology platforms aren’t designed with these smaller operators in mind. In contrast, Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity platform was created with smaller fleets and owner operators in mind. The platform and its companion driver and carrier solutions help fleets and owner operators find and book loads in real-time, navigate routes, find the cheapest fuel, secure parking and ultimately raise their profit margins, while providing freight brokers and 3PLs like you with the infrastructure to establish and build carrier relationships for the future.
