The LoadTraxx app allows short haul truck drivers to log their materials, enter load weights, select loading and unloading locations and set customers.
The LoadTraxx platform was designed by Washington-based short haul fleet Tapio Construction with the software firm Miwatec. The Tapio team noted that short haul, and specifically the dump truck industry was still relying on pen and paper to track loads and billing.
Tapio’s front office often had to collect load reports and pit tickets from drivers and attempt to transcribe what drivers had scribbled while hauling. This left some loads unaccounted for, costing fleets money. The LoadTraxx app was designed to solve these issues.
With LoadTraxx, drivers can submit their daily haul summaries, complete with truck mileage, fuel receipts and pit tickets, to the dashboard without having to drop off physical copies. The data is synced in real-time (online and offline capable) to the administrative department's fully-customizable online dashboard.
Reports are automatically generated to be used for billing, payroll, fuel tax and other affected departments.
"We set out to build a product that would transform a costly method that the trucking industry has been using for years," said Jordan Hillstrom, co-owner of LoadTraxx. "Short haul trucking companies are losing money every day due to messy or misplaced paperwork. We knew there was a better way, so we created one."
