Trucker Path, creators of a trip planning app for truck drivers, announced that its freight marketplace, Truckloads has added a truck search feature to find available carriers.
Brokers that post freight on the Truckloads platform can now search for verified carriers who could be a match to haul a load based on location, equipment type, and the carrier’s safety rating. Companies can also contact available carriers directly.
“Our broker clients have asked for a feature that allows them to find capacity faster and in turn move more freight,” said Leigh Foxall, Trucker Path vice president of sales. “Enabling Truck Search provides our users a streamlined way to connect with carriers immediately in a way that other load boards simply cannot offer.”
The initial launch of the truck search feature includes 5,000 qualified carriers and additional ones will be added as the feature rolls out to more users across the Truckloads platform, the company says.
Released in March 2016, Truckloads features over 2.5 million monthly loads posted by nearly 800 brokers and is available for free on the web or as an application for mobile devices.
