Carrier-Friendly Freight Tracking That Integrates with Your TMS, Shippers’ Visibility Software

What makes Trucker Tools’ real-time freight tracking platform different from other visibility software you may have used is the Trucker Tools driver app, the carrier component of Trucker Tools’ freight tracking platform. In addition to providing brokers like you with accurate, real-time, GPS-based load visibility, the Trucker Tools driver app offers truckers valuable information on everything from overnight parking and truck stops to fuel prices and routing. With 17+ tools and features, the Trucker Tools driver app is an all-in-one technology that saves truckers time and money. More than 1 million truckers have downloaded the Trucker Tools driver app because of the value that it offers. Because so many truckers already use the Trucker Tools driver app, the brokers and 3PLs who use Trucker Tools’ real-time load tracking platform are able to meet even the most stringent visibility consistency and compliance KPIs required by shippers.

Trucker Tools’ real-time visibility platform integrates with the most popular transportation management systems used by brokers and logistics providers today, including the HighJump/Körber TMS. This integration capability allows you to view the real-time location of trucks instantly in your TMS without ever making a check call or opening a new browser or software platform. Trucker Tools’ freight tracking platform also integrates with shipper software platforms MacroPoint, 10/4, Project44 and FourKites. This integration lets you seamlessly share real-time load tracking data with your shipper customers. 

Digital Freight Matching: What the Buzz Is All About

In 2020, adoption of technology accelerated due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on supply chains. Many technologies went from nice-to-haves to must-haves overnight as brokerages and 3PLs moved to a work-from-home model. One of the biggest technology trends to emerge from this period of rapid adoption of technology has been digital freight matching.  

“The demand for digital freight matching has been and continues to be huge,” said Prasad Gollapalli, CEO and founder of Trucker Tools in a recent webinar. “Everyone wants to know where capacity is and, more importantly, how technology can help them scale their reach with carriers. People want to shift from manual to automated in order to get their loads covered quickly.”

Trucker Tools’ digital freight matching platform matches your open loads with trucks from your network of preferred carriers. The matches that you see at the top of the load/truck matching list are the best matches, which makes finding the best truck for you load easy and quick. With Trucker Tools’ digital freight matching, you can give drivers and carriers the ability to view your open loads in the Trucker Tools driver app or in our free software platform for trucking companies. Digital freight matching offers you and your carrier partners a major efficiency boost. You don’t need to use load boards, email carriers or call carrier dispatchers to find out what capacity is available within your network of preferred drivers and carriers. You can find capacity with your preferred carriers instantly with digital freight matching.

Reduce Cost Per Load with Book It Now®

Book It Now® is a digital load booking toolthat reduces the time that you spend finalizing bookings with carriers. When you post one of your loads as a Book It Now® load in Trucker Tools’ digital freight matching platform, you give drivers and carriers the ability to book the load through the Trucker Tools driver app or free carrier platform. A software integration between Trucker Tools’ digital freight matching platform and your TMS automates the entire process. When the driver or carrier books your Book It Now® load, the booking is automatically recorded in your TMS. The driver/carrier dispatcher immediately receives an automated email confirming the details of the booking. 

Book It Now® increases your operational efficiency because it reduces the time and resources needed to secure capacity, which can lower your cost per load. The efficiency gained translates into more time and resources available to cultivate new business and to move more volume. Book It Now® also benefits your carrier partners because it lets them find and book your loads faster. With Book It Now®, carriers can book your loads any time — not just during daytime, office hours — which drivers and carriers greatly appreciate.
