TRUX Launches Dump Truck Logistics App for Contractors
TRUX Connect smartphone app offers extensive dump truck management tools for contractors
Waltham, Mass., July 9, 2019 – TRUX™, the first and only comprehensive dump truck logistics platform, just launched TRUX Connect, a brand-new app for contractors on the App Store for iPhone and iPad, and Google Play for Android devices. TRUX Connect allows contractors on the go to manage job sites and trucking logistics while saving time and money.
“Giving contractors real-time access to every truck across their fleet is a real game-changer,” says Jeff Gower, CEO of TRUX. “Contractors can now manage their fleets from the palms of their hands by using TRUX Connect at the job site. Being able to quickly create new job requests, manage active truckers and see upcoming schedules means contractors can spend less time doing busywork in the office and spend more time on improving on-site performance.”
With TRUX Connect, contractors:
- Access thousands of qualified drivers ready to assist at their job sites
- Scale their fleets instantly for larger or distant jobs using the TRUX Marketplace
- Manage their regular drivers more effectively
- Respond to job site activity, needs, and progress
- Track truckers that are on the clock
The app’s advanced features include shift creation workflows, fleet management, dispatching tools, and schedule views, with additional features under development.
“We’ve received great feedback from contractors who use our web app, and we’re excited to bring the same level of ease and functionality to our new mobile app,” says Mike Saccone, CTO and co-founder of TRUX. “We’re working hand-in-hand with our contractor partners to ensure TRUX Connect includes all the features they’re looking for while on the job site to help them keep projects on track.”
Hundreds of the nation’s leading contractors currently use TRUX to dispatch thousands of third-party dump trucks as well as their own trucks. TRUX has recently launched in a number of metro areas including Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, Houston, Dallas, Nashville, Phoenix and Birmingham, Ala. The company is committed to expanding into more than 25 states across the country this year.
