Trucker Tools launches Smart Capacity freight matching for fleets

Trucker Tools Mobile AppDuring the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Trucker Tools announced new features and functions for its mobile driver app and the launch of Smart Capacity for owner-operators and small fleets.

Launched in 2013, the Trucker Tools Mobile Driver App has been downloaded by more than 500,000 truckers for planning and information resource tools. Trucker Tools has surpassed 100,000 unique, connected carriers active on its network.

Building on its Smart Capacity predictive freight matching platform for brokers, Trucker Tools introduced Smart Capacity for Truckers and Small Fleets.  The application suite is designed specifically for the needs of owner-operators, and small-fleet dispatchers.

Drivers access the Smart Capacity tools through the Trucker Tools mobile app on their GPS-enabled smart-phone or tablet. The application proactively searches and ranks new loads that are available from various brokers in proximity to the driver’s delivery destination.

The app uses driver-selected lane, broker and load preferences. Small fleet dispatchers use the tools in similar fashion, selecting and matching optimal loads for their drivers in multiple trucks. The process is conducted over Trucker Tools’ confidential, private network and via the smart-phone based mobile driver app.

“The old ways of truckers calling brokers for loads or scrolling through stale, obsolete data on load boards or spreadsheets are gone,” said Gollapalli. “We are bringing the power, convenience, accuracy and efficiency of predictive, digital load-matching to the fingertips of drivers and small fleet dispatchers.”
