Freight-matching website Getloaded now offers E-mail Alerts, which allow members to save a load search and receive alerts via e-mail any time a new load is posted that matches their search criteria.
Specifically designed for users who can receive e-mail on their mobile phones, this new feature is included free within Getloaded's Trucker Plus, Trucker Elite, Combo, Combo Plus, and Combo Elite membership levels.
"Our E-mail Alerts feature gives members the upper hand when searching for a load -- wherever they are -- because our system does the searching for them," said Fergus Caldicott, general manager at Getloaded. "Truckers have so much to deal with when they're on the road, and our hope is that E-mail Alerts gives them a little more peace of mind when it comes to keeping their business rolling."
