Trucker Path offers bundle for smaller fleets

Trucker Path, a mobile app for North American truckers, has combined multiple products to create an affordable package for small- to mid-size fleets. The Essentials bundle includes truck-safe navigation and routing, ELD, load board and direct-to-app dispatching solutions.

“Our new Essentials package includes everything a small- to mid-sized carrier needs to efficiently and effectively grow their business,” said Trucker Path Chief Marketing Officer Chris Oliver. “Not only does Essentials save our customers 35% compared to the cost of buying individual products, but it also provides an advantage when it comes to support and coordination, and seamless interoperability from a single provider.”

Included is the Geotab ELD with electronic DVIR capabilities; the TruckLoads load board, offering unlimited access to search, bid and book loads quickly and easily; a fully integrated, easy-to-use software to dispatch loads directly to the drivers’ Trucker Path app; and TruckerPath truck mapping and navigation.

Fleets using other brands of ELDs to meet regulatory requirements can also take advantage of the Essentials bundle from Trucker Path without its ELD solution.

Ezlogz integrates Drivewyze PreClear, Safety+

Ezlogz, a provider of fleet management solutions for trucking companies and owner operators in the U.S., has partnered with Drivewyze, which offers weigh station bypass and driver safety services, to help its customers save time and money and improve safety outcomes. Ezlogz has integrated with Drivewyze to provide its customers with Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass and Drivewyze Safety+ services to its platform.

Since no transponders are required, activation of Drivewyze PreClear on the Ezlogz platform can be done in minutes. Drivewyze transmits safety scores, registration and tax compliance information to the weigh station, which then calculates the information against the bypass criteria established by its state or province. If the carrier and vehicle pass the criteria, the driver receives permission to bypass the site at one mile out. The better the fleet’s safety score, the more bypasses typically granted. The service is offered at more than 880 locations in 46 states and provinces.

Drivewyze Safety+ provides drivers with real-time weather alerts and in-cab safety alerts for upcoming dangerous curves, low bridges, high speeding citation areas and more. Drivewyze’s back-office tools also allow fleets to create their own customized driver alerts, and its safety analytics allow fleets to monitor driver behavior and help in driver coaching.
