Trucker Path introduces Facebook-based chatbot

Freight industry chatbot to provide truck parking and weigh station statuses

Trucker Path released its Trucker Path Bro, the industry’s first freight chatbot. With Trucker Path Bro, truckers can get the latest updates on parking availability, weigh stations, and other nearby facilities.

“This helps truckers to optimize their trips and save loads of time and money (According to the latest research Trucker Path PRO saves roughly 51 min per trip on average, translating in $600 in monthly savings),” the company said.

The idea behind the main Trucker Path Pro app came from CB radio which has been used by the drivers for decades to share important information on the road. With the latest inclusion, Trucker Path Pro now provides information on truck parking availability at more than 27,000 locations along the National Highway System.

Trucker Path Pro’s crowdsourcing technology captures real-time information on truck parking availability from its active user community. More than 430,000 drivers, or 30% of all Class 8 drivers in the United States, use the app for daily trip planning, according to the company.
