Truckstop Go app aims to help carriers mobilize their business

March 29, 2022
According to a survey from Truckstop.com, nearly half of respondents use a mobile app daily to do their jobs, while 60% of respondents use mobile features for freight matching or to find loads.

New data from Truckstop.com reveals that nearly half the carriers it surveyed use a mobile app to do their jobs. Truckstop Go, a next-generation mobile app from Truckstop.com, just launched to help carriers find loads in real-time, book loads instantly, locate competitive rates, and get paid quickly.

Available in April, Truckstop Go will provide tools that help carriers check daily rate information for loads, helping them negotiate and swipe in-app to save, compare and hide loads.

New Truckstop Go features also include the following:

  • Live Loads: Get notified in real-time when a new load matching search criteria is posted.
  • Book it Now: Book loads instantly from trusted brokers with competitive rates.
  • Factoring: Eliminate paperwork and get paid all through the mobile app.
“Mobile apps give carriers the freedom and flexibility they need to conduct business on their own terms, whether they are on the road or at home,” said Brett Webb, chief product officer at Truckstop.com. “We have listened to our customers and created an intuitive and comprehensive app full of the features and functionality they want to organize their businesses and become more competitive.”

For carriers, mobilizing their operations is crucial and mobile apps have become table stakes, especially in the freight transportation industry, Truckstop.com pointed out. According to a survey from Truckstop.com, nearly half (46%) of respondents use a mobile app daily to do their jobs. Sixty percent of respondents use mobile features for freight matching or to find loads, with 59% checking spot rates. Apps are also helping with back-end operations: 58% of carriers use mobile features to get paid faster and 54% use them to eliminate paperwork.

According to the survey, carriers polled use mobile apps daily for:

  • Freight matching/finding loads—60%
  • Checking spot rates—59%
  • Getting paid quickly—58%
  • Eliminating paperwork—54%
  • Ensuring compliance—48%

Forty-six percent also say they use a mobile app for load planning every single day—93% use an app at least once a month.
