Truckstop.com Releases Load Tracking Service, New Carrier-Focused Mobile App
Truckstop.com released its new integrated Load Tracking service within its freight-matching marketplace, plus a new mobile application, Truckstop Mobile, for carriers.
The new Load Tracking service gives brokers and carriers the ability to interact directly through Truckstop Mobile, according to the New Plymouth, Idaho-based company. Carriers also will have the ability to receive tracking requests on their mobile devices.
With Truckstop Mobile, carriers can view load details, pickup and drop information, and submit check calls directly through the app, the company said.
Carriers also will be able to reduce interruptive phone calls because Load Tracking is built into the Truckstop Mobile app, giving carriers the ability to offer load tracking from pickup to delivery, it said.
Carriers do not need a Truckstop.com freight matching subscription to use the load tracking service within the mobile app, the company said.
The new mobile application provides a simplified user experience, the company said, with enhanced functionality and will replace the existing ITS Trucker mobile application.
“It’s a product our members have been asking for and something that will improve visibility on their freight movement,” Thayne Boren, general manager of Truckstop.com’s Mobile Solutions, said in a statement. “Brokers are more likely to select carriers who participate in load tracking to move their freight. Carriers who use this service will have greater opportunities for success.”
