MINNEAPOLIS — In its latest move to provide unparalleled benefits and services to members, ONE20 announced a new program that will give free roadside assistance to more than 350,000 drivers who are members of the ONE20 communities.
To launch the program, ONE20 has partnered with RoadsideMASTERS.com, the membership program providing roadside assistance to commercial vehicles across the United States and Canada. This partnership will create the largest roadside service offering of its kind, aligning closely with ONE20's commitment to make life easier, safer and more cost-effective for professional drivers, stated a company news release.

The partnership marks a huge milestone for ONE20 and its mission to provide free tools and services to drivers across the country. Specializing in emergency roadside assistance since 2009, RoadsideMASTERS' history of expertise and experience is a perfect fit to bring ONE20 members a level of service unmatched by anyone else in the industry.
"When working with partners, our goal is to work closely with organizations who see and support our vision. RoadsideMASTERS is a perfect example of a company working to help an underserved and often overlooked demographic," said Christian Schenk, CEO and president of ONE20. "We can now offer our members a benefit they might not otherwise be able to access and we're giving it to them for free. Breakdowns are expensive, and this program will help ONE20 members get back on the road as soon as possible."
Starting in August 2017, ONE20 members will be eligible for free Silver Level service through RoadsideMASTERS.com. Benefits include but are not limited to: truck and trailer towing, flat tire change, tire repair, mobile mechanic service and jump starts. Drivers will also have options for added coverage under the Gold and Platinum programs; depending on what additional ONE20 products and services the driver is utilizing. ONE20 members who purchase and activate a ONE20 F-ELD before September 1, 2017 will get an automatic upgrade to Gold Level service and ONE20 Silver Level users will also have the option to opt into Gold coverage at a discounted rate.
Historically, roadside assistance programs cost up to $700 annually, an expense many drivers cannot afford. When breakdowns occur, drivers are forced to fork over additional money in order to get back up and running. Towing assistance is typically requested twice a year, with a five mile tow averaging $500, not including added repair costs.
Once registered, accessing the program is easy – benefits are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For assistance, drivers simply call the support number listed on their membership card. They will then receive a text from RoadsideMASTERS.com, which allows the support team to geo-locate the driver so dispatchers know exactly where to send a service team.
"ONE20 is changing the game for professional truckers across the country. Their approach to providing tools and services on behalf of the driver is something we want to be part of," said Jason Cohen, CEO and president of RoadsideMASTERS.com. "Our partnership not only further solidifies ONE20 as a leader that is paving the way for change in a stale industry, it also has the potential to save ONE20 members up to $140 million on an annual basis."
This roadside assistance program is a value-added service to current ONE20 and RoadsideMASTERS members. In addition to the ONE20 community receiving free roadside assistance, RoadsideMASTERS members will be able to access a multitude of ONE20 benefits that include: free truck-safe navigation, exclusive deals and savings, and the option to purchase the ONE20 F-ELD at a discounted rate. The program will keep more money in drivers' pockets and ensure members of both organizations will get support when it's needed most.
The program will officially launch on August 1, 2017, but current ONE20 users can pre-register through the My ONE20 app by visiting https://myone20.app.link/w1DkzWX1AE. Interested drivers who are not currently ONE20 members can download the My ONE20 App from the Google Play or Apple App stores for free.
