Trucker Path, a comprehensive mobile app for North American truckers, has announced Command, a transportation management system designed to both enhance driver relationships and manage operations. The new Operations & Driver Relationship (ODR) platform combines the driver-centric Trucker Path app, currently in use by more than a million drivers, with the operational tools found in commonly used transportation management systems. 

“Our ODR platform is a new kind of TMS that provides driver relationship features, advanced management capabilities, and third-party solution integrations to simplify day-to-day tasks while also helping make time on the road better for drivers,” Chris Oliver, chief marketing officer at Trucker Path, said. “With Command, drivers no longer have to jump between the Trucker Path app and the company TMS system. Parking, navigation, track & trace, and operations are all in one place.”

With driver satisfaction a key to success, but retention remaining one of the largest ongoing challenges for trucking operations, the Operations & Driver Relationship platform can be configured with a customized, company-branded version of the Trucker Path mobile app. To provide drivers with a positive experience, it features information to help make life on the road easier, including:

  • Real-time predictive parking availability at more than 20,000 safe, truck-friendly locations
  • Weigh station status
  • Shipping dock ratings, reviews, photos, amenities, detention reporting, and navigation showing exactly where trucks enter/exit the facility
  • Fuel prices at thousands of locations updated multiple times daily
  • Ratings, reviews, photos, and listings of amenities for 300,000 POIs, including truckstops, rest areas, fuel locations, truck washes and scales, shipping facilities, repair shops, restaurants, hotels, and more

In addition to the common and necessary transportation management tools, this new all-in-one trucking ODR platform includes truck navigation, load and driver management, track & trace, accounting, financial, tax, driver settlement, and maintenance applications, as well as key metric reporting and a customer portal.
