Trucker Tools, freight tracking and matching software provider, announced the launch of a new Carrier Lane Search tool in its Smart Capacity digital freight matching software platform for freight brokers and third-party logistics providers.

The new tool allows freight brokers and logistics providers to identify and interact with carriers from within and outside of their current capacity networks. Carrier Lane Search provides the best capacity matches in a given lane for a single load or for a consistent carrier. To use the feature, brokers simply enter the origin and destination markets, type of freight, and start and end dates in Smart Capacity. The Carrier Lane Search tool uses multiple data sources including carrier submitted capacity, saved preferences, search history, tracking history, offers submitted, loads already covered and other types of data to provide best capacity matches for the lane.

“Our newly launched Carrier Lane Search makes it easier for brokers and 3PLs to take advantage of Trucker Tools’ huge carrier and owner operator network, which to date includes nearly 2.5 million drivers and 315,000 carriers, most of whom are small carriers,” said Kary Jablonski, Trucker Tools’ CEO in a statement. “In addition to helping brokers locate lane-specific truck capacity quickly, Carrier Lane Search provides historic data on each carrier to drive multiple bookings between brokers and carriers.”

Brokers also can view the number of loads viewed, booked with Book It Now, and tracked with the Trucker Tools driver app or with an ELD for each carrier listed in the Carrier Lane Search results. To initiate contact with a carrier from the search results, brokers can click on the carrier name and type a message.

Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity software platform provides predictive freight-matching, automated booking, GPS-driven automated tracking, and digital document management to about 350 freight brokers and 3PLs.

The Trucker Tools mobile driver 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.
