Trucker Path’s new service promises to handle “all the back-office work” for drivers

PHOENIX and LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Trucker Path, a mobile loading/shipping app for North American truckers, announced a new service for drivers called Trucker Path DISPATCH.

Chris Oliver, a Trucker Path executive, said the company takes care of “all the back-office work so drivers can just focus on driving. The personalized approach allows drivers to determine their lane and product preferences, then we find the loads they want to haul at cost-effective rates, eliminate forced shipments, handle control calls and also help find a parking lot and the best places to stop at the end of shift. »

“Small carriers and owner-operators often don’t get the same competitive advantages achieved through technology that large carriers and brokers get,” he said.

“Trucker Path DISPATCH is a highly efficient, enhanced, full-service dispatch service designed specifically to meet the back-office needs of the hundreds of thousands of small carriers and owner-operators who rely on the suite of focused features on the driver. Trucker Path provides.

Trucker Path DISPATCH features include:

  • Load search and negotiation
  • Truck Navigation
  • Status report
  • Compliance monitoring
  • Digital documents

As we do with all of our offerings, we will continue to ask our driver community and grow this service until it has all the features we 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 dispatcher. personal. The only cost for drivers is 5% per load booked.
