Find Loads in Your Preferred Lanes with Your Favorite Brokers Quickly with Trucker Tools’ Mobile App
Using the Trucker Tools mobile app to find loads with your favorite brokers in your preferred lanes is much faster than calling brokers or using load boards to get this information. You can search by pickup and destination locations (lanes), date and time, and truck type (van, reefer, flatbed, auto carrier) in the Trucker Tools app in a matter of seconds. Once you hit the search button, you can sort the results list by pickup time or by the number of deadhead miles.
Each load that you see listed in your search results includes the name of the broker, the broker’s phone number, the pickup and drop off dates and times, the type of load, the load number, load weight and associated deadhead miles. When you find a load that looks good, you can either tap on the broker’s phone number or tap on the Quote button to communicate with the broker about the rate through the Trucker Tools app. You also can save your searches for future use and be notified when new loads become available in your preferred lanes.
