PHOENIX and LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Trucker Path, a load/dispatch mobile app for North American truckers, has announced a new service for drivers called Trucker Path DISPATCH.
Chris Oliver, an executive with Trucker Path, said that the company handles “all the back-office work so drivers can just concentrate on driving. The personalized approach lets drivers determine their lane and commodity preferences, and then we find the loads they want to haul at profitable rates, eliminate forced dispatches, handle the check calls, and also help with finding parking and the best places to shut down at the end of a shift.”
Trucker Path CEO said that the trucking industry has received tens of billions of venture and private equity investment in the past decade with very little supporting the individual driver.
“Smaller carriers and owner operators often don’t get the same competitive advantages achieved through technology that larger carriers and brokers get,” he said.
“Trucker Path DISPATCH is a tech-enhanced, highly-efficient, full-service dispatch service designed specifically to serve the back-office needs of the hundreds of thousands of small carriers and owner-operators who rely on the suite of driver-focused features Trucker Path provides.”
Trucker Path DISPATCH features include:
- Load Sourcing & Negotiation
- Truck Navigation
- Status Reporting
- Compliance Monitoring
- Digital Paperwork
“With over a million users on our app we have the unique advantage of directly contacting our drivers to ask them what they like and want,” Oliver said. “The features in this initial launch of DISPATCH were the top selections. Just like we do with all our offerings, we will continue to ask our community of drivers and continue to build this service until it has all the features they want and need.”
To get started with Trucker Path DISPATCH, drivers must submit their Motor Carrier Authority, certificate of insurance and W-9 tax forms, sign a service level agreement and begin sharing their load and lane preferences with a personal dispatcher. The only cost to drivers is 5% per booked load.
