Mobile technology offers a lot of advantages. This is specially true with the advent of smart phones. The constant evolution of mobile operating systems and apps have brought features that we use on a daily basis. These features not only benefit our personal lives, but our professional careers as well.
For shipping and transportation companies, having the right apps at your fingertips can bring untold advantages for our industry. Here are a few trucker apps to consider.
With untold amounts of fuel used each week, even the smallest savings can add up. Ready to save? Install the free GasBuddy app.
GasBuddy allows drivers to find the cheapest fuel based on specified location. The free GasBuddy app relies on a community of users working together to give drivers up-to-date diesel prices for thousands of stations across the U.S. and Canada.
Success in the trucking industry is dependent on continual load delivery. A day not moving freight is a day not getting paid. The uShip mobile app aims to help truckers keep their trucks full.
With uShip mobile, owner-operators bid on loads that people and businesses need shipped. Drivers can find nearby loads, place bids, get automatic notices that let them know when a bid is accepted or declined, view booking details and use optional GPS tracking to alert shippers and consignees to ETAs.
CoPilot Live Truck is a mobile app that features voice-guided GPS navigation that can deliver customized, safe and reliable routes calculated based on your vehicle size, weight and load type.
Truck drivers are human. We need breaks to eat, shower, and rest. Trucker Path is an app to help you find reliable stopping points to attend to those breaks.
Trucker Path is an application that lists all major and independent truck stops, parking, rest areas and both open and closed weigh stations. Trucker Path is an accurate, up-to-date tool that crowd-sources data from a community of more than 100,000 users who post information, ratings, and reviews.
