WATERLOO, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BigRoad has launched BigRoad Freight - a load matching platform built within the BigRoad Mobile App. BigRoad Freight gives owner-operators and fleets the ability to book the loads they want while ensuring quick payment and providing hours-of-service (HOS) visibility.
BigRoad is the first company to launch in-app load matching within an electronic logbook application that suggests loads based on a driver’s GPS coordinates and available hours-of-service. Drivers using the BigRoad Mobile App can easily sign up to participate in BigRoad Freight. Once registered, drivers are sent push notifications recommending loads to them. They can view load details, including the payout, and choose to accept or reject loads from within the app. This eliminates phone calls, emails, and dealing with brokers directly.
“At BigRoad, we’ve always put drivers first. We wanted to find a way to help put more money in their pockets while enabling them to achieve hours-of-service and electronic logging device mandate compliance with our industry leading solution,” noted Tony Lourakis, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BigRoad - A Fleet Complete Company. “Making money shouldn’t be complicated - drivers have enough to worry about. We’ve simplified how drivers book loads and get paid, sparing them from having to call brokers, play phone tag, and haggle over the price.”
BigRoad Freight empowers drivers to book the loads they want, when they want them, 24/7 from their mobile device. Payout and terms are straightforward, simplifying the load booking process and removing the need to speak with brokers directly. Payments can be sent within a few days via a method selected by the drivers, enabling faster payment.
Through partnerships with brokers, load boards, and digital freight platforms, BigRoad Freight creates simplicity, improves speed, and establishes transparency in shipper-carrier relations. By leveraging real-time location information and a unique compliance availability dataset, shippers and carriers benefit from improved schedule predictability and asset optimization. BigRoad is committed to developing partnerships to grow the number of loads offered through the platform.
As an industry leader in the regulatory compliance space, BigRoad has helped thousands of owner-operators and fleets stay ELD compliant through their innovative, easy-to-use compliance solution. All BigRoad users, with or without a DashLink ELD, can participate in BigRoad Freight. Combined, BigRoad’s solutions helps drivers to simplify their day by removing the guesswork out of compliance and HOS availability.
“At BigRoad, we’ve always developed our solutions from the driver’s perspective which is why we’re the compliance solutions leader,” added Jake McGuire, Vice-President of Sales, Marketing, and Customer Success at BigRoad. “It’s what makes BigRoad Freight so innovative and easy-to-use.”
