Meherrin, Virginia – April 18, 2019 – First released in March 2016, while other key trucking industry developers were focused solely on planning routes, finding truck stops, and parking, the Truckers Trip Planning App was the first app on the market of its kind to allow Solo and Team Truck Drivers the ability to take control of their time and their profitability potential by combining the concepts of hours of service trip planning, load profitability, and making fast but accurate load decisions before accepting loads that they could not legally deliver on time and loads that were not at all profitable.
“While in the truck as a Company Driver and as a Lease Operator in early 2015, I had firsthand experience that professional truck drivers lacked the necessary tools to quickly determine if they had the hours of service to run their loads, whether they could deliver their loads on time, and whether their loads were at all profitable prior to committing to loads that they would later come to regret.
“Believing that these concerns were the root causes of the high level of stress that ultimately culminated into driver fatigue, increased accidents, incidents, and strained relationships between Professional Truck Drivers and Dispatchers by those who were not using the App and hearing these concerns from other truck drivers is what made me release the original Truckers Trip Planning App to the trucking industry in March 2016. Offering separate versions now for Dispatchers, Company Drivers, Lease, and Owner Operators makes the App more specific and cost effective for individual users based on their driving arrangements so that they are not overwhelmed with information that they don’t need,” said John Watson, Professional Driver, Owner, General Manager, and Developer at Young And Healthy Marketing LLC.
The Truckers Trip Planning App allows Solo and Team Truck Drivers in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the European Union the opportunity to recap their hours of service, enter their dispatch, automatically calculate their truck drive time, the number of hours required for pre-trips, loading, unloading, fuel stops, and post trips, the number of hours for required rest breaks, their earliest start time, their Estimated Time of Arrivals (ETA), their Next Available Time (NAT), and their available hours of service for their next load. Owner Operators can quickly calculate the revenue generated by the load and the cost of operations in running the load.
With this information, which can be obtained in less than five minutes, Solo and Team Truck Drivers can quickly determine if they have the on-duty time to safely and legally run a load and whether they can deliver the load on time. Lease and Owner Operators can determine if their loads are profitable or a load that would send them straight into debt.
Through partnerships and services provided by AccuWeather Inc., TeleType Co. Inc., DAT Solutions, LLC, and Altova, the truckers Trip Planning App provides the Solo and Team Truck Drivers with the tools they need to check a 5-day weather forecast for all the stops on their trip, access commercial truck routes to avoid tolls, low clearances and restricted routes, find loads with the best rates, and the ability to keep track of their expenses while running their load.
