Trucker Path announces its trip-planning app for professional drivers, Trucker Path Pro, has been updated with an additional 1,000 locations to expand what already is the largest source of parking data in the trucking industry.
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.
According to the company, Trucker Path Pro’s crowdsourcing technology captures accurate, real-time information on truck parking availability from its user community. More than 400,000 drivers, or 30% of all Class 8 drivers in the United States, use the app for daily trip planning.
The app delivers real time and predictive information that enables users to find available truck parking at locations by time of day and day of week, the company noted.
“We are committed to improving the shortage of truck parking by providing drivers with the most accurate and detailed information that is available today,” said Ivan Tsybaev, founder of Trucker Path. “By helping drivers locate parking and optimize their stops along their routes, Trucker Path Pro contributes to safety, compliance and job satisfaction in the trucking industry.”
With many of the recently added parking locations selling fuel, Trucker Path Pro has also expanded its nationwide coverage of real-time fuel pricing information.
The app is available to company drivers and owner operators as a free download on iOS and Android devices. Trucker Path also offers a free optimized freight marketplace supported by a large community of freight companies and motor carriers. Freight companies and motor carriers can download Truckloads on mobile devices and also access a web version at truckloads.truckerpath.com.
