Trucker Tools announced a partnership with Samsara allowing drivers and carriers to use the Samsara ELD to digitally track loads for freight brokers via Trucker Tools’ real-time freight visibility software platform.
The one-click integration can be activated via Samsara’s App Marketplace. Once connected, in-transit data is transmitted from the ELD to Trucker Tools’ real-time visibility software.
“Our integration partnership with Samsara helps brokers meet high shipper visibility KPIs and also accommodate driver and carrier preferences around digital load tracking technology,” said Kary Jablonski, Trucker Tools’ CEO in a statement. “For truckers and carriers, this partnership is about convenience and automation. Once a trucker consents to tracking with a Samsara ELD, tracking starts and continues automatically until turned off by the trucker.”
This newest ELD integration partnership is one of about 90 integration partnerships that Trucker Tools maintains with leading ELD providers.
“It’s no secret that end-to-end freight visibility benefits everyone in the supply chain,” added Sean McGee, VP of product, platform, and infrastructure at Samsara. “Our partnership with Trucker Tools allows freight brokers and 3PLs on Trucker Tools’ platform to accommodate ELD freight tracking, which has become increasingly popular among drivers and carriers in recent months.”
Jablonski added that freight broker customers who combine ELD-integrated and app-based load tracking with the Trucker Tools app achieve on average tracking success rates above 90%.
The Trucker Tools mobile app, which was launched in 2013, is available for both Android- and Apple-powered smartphones and is provided free of charge to independent truckers and small fleets.
