AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Overhaul launched their web platform and mobile app today, the next generation online marketplace for the trucking industry designed to address the needs of Owner Operator carriers and shippers moving higher value, more sensitive cargo. The “uberization of trucking” concept connects the needs of premium shippers to trusted professional drivers and operators eliminating the need to connect through third parties.
Overhaul’s founders are seasoned executives in the security and logistics industry. “With Overhaul, trusted drivers can thrive in an environment they get to design for themselves. We provide a secure method for shippers to move cargo with recognized and trusted drivers at our foundation,” said Barry Conlon, CEO of Overhaul.

He facilitated the growth of FreightWatch into the Fortune 500 entity of innovative, supply chain security solutions known today and intends to do the same for Overhaul in the commercial transportation industry.
The Overhaul team will leverage its extensive network of contacts to line up higher end shippers and trusted owner operators (representing 91% of the US transportation fleet) in advance of the online marketplace launch mid-year. Overhaul’s proprietary technology, with advanced safety and security features, and managed logistics services guarantees a secure move that will satisfy enterprise-level customers.
