Trucker Tools Upgrades Mobile Driver App, Rolls Out Smart Capacity Digital Load-Matching for Truckers and Small Fleets

Trucker Tools LLC, which provides shipment visibility, carrier capacity management and predictive freight-matching solutions for the transportation industry, announced today feature and function improvements for the Trucker Tools Mobile Driver App, and the introduction of Smart Capacity for Truckers and Small Fleets.

Launched in 2013, the Trucker Tools Mobile Driver App has been downloaded by more than 500,000 truckers. With some 16 different planning and information resource tools, the smart-phone based mobile app is deployed by truckers and small fleet operators to simplify and streamline many tasks involved in the day to day planning and operation of their trucks. Last month, Trucker Tools also reached another milestone, surpassing 100,000 unique, connected carriers active on the network.

Last fall, Trucker Tools introduced Smart Capacity for Brokers. A cloud-based application suite integrated with major TMS software providers, Smart Capacity streamlines how brokers operate, utilizing a next-generation, predictive freight-matching and capacity connectivity platform. Manual work of the broker to find and match available trucks with loads is dramatically reduced. Visibility to timely, reliable capacity, accuracy and quality of load-matches are improved. The result is higher broker productivity and enhanced revenues through compressed “book to load” time, and faster, more efficient workflow. With Smart Capacity, a process that once took up to 30 broker phone calls, now takes 5 or less.
