TRUX Continues Nationwide Expansion with Launch in Alabama
Cloud-based platform offers complete dump truck management solution for contractors, drivers and material producers
Waltham, Mass., February 26, 2019 – TRUX™, the first and only comprehensive dump truck logistics platform, announced today it is available in greater Birmingham and Huntsville. This launch is the first in Alabama and marks the third new metro launch for TRUX in 2019. TRUX is a cloud-based dump truck management solution that offers truckers, contractors and material providers key features such as automated dispatching, tracking, driver notification, paperless ticketing, and driver payment.
TRUX is an open marketplace that offers independent dump truck drivers access to jobs they otherwise wouldn’t have access to. By using the TRUX platform, drivers determine their own schedules, giving them the freedom to pick the jobs they want, improve efficiency and reduce deadhead (the expensive time spent driving an empty truck). Additionally, the built-in automation and management tools enable drivers to get paid weekly, earn rewards, and save on items like insurance, parts and maintenance.
For contractors, TRUX adds flexibility and scalability to their business operations by providing access to thousands of qualified drivers ready to assist at their job sites. Contractors can instantly scale their fleets for larger jobs through the TRUX marketplace and more effectively manage their regular drivers. Additionally, the TRUX logistics platform provides deep insight into the contractor’s fleet with usage data and real-time tracking.
“Alabama has been high on the radar for TRUX,” said Jeff Gower, CEO of TRUX. “Birmingham and Huntsville are both vibrant, lively cities with plenty of development and an increasing need for flexible dump truck operations. We are looking forward to helping drivers, contractors, and material producers in the region conduct their businesses more efficiently.”
Hundreds of the nation’s leading contractors currently use TRUX to dispatch thousands of third-party dump trucks. Most recently, TRUX launched in greater Los Angeles and metro Phoenix. The company has plans to expand into 44 additional markets across North America this year.
