Announcing TruckSmarter on your desktop (it’s 100% free)

TruckSmarter

Oct 16, 2023

At TruckSmarter, everything we do starts with you and what you need to run your trucking business. As a driver-first company, we started with mobile so our free load board app is with you on your phone and on the road when you need it, wherever you need it. But many of you asked for a desktop version, and we listened.

Compare our load board to our competitors and you’ll quickly see what makes us stand out: a free load board with premium features that other load board competitors make you pay for, like search filters that let you filter by freight broker, freight types, rates per mile and more. Plus, for many loads you can bid and book through the app or call or email directly, so you can take action the moment you find the right load.

Driver-first also means we’re chatting with truck drivers and owner-operators like you who use our app every day for their business. Whether you’re telling us your pain points or what your dream tool would be, we’re always listening for ways to make TruckSmarter work the way you need it to for your trucking business. That’s why TruckSmarter’s load board app is better than our competitors, because we’re not only listening: we’re making it happen.


YOU ASKED, WE LISTENED. 

A topic that came up often during our chats with truck drivers was a request for a desktop version that complements our free mobile load board app, with a clean and easy-to-use interface designed just for your computer. In a driver survey, more than half of truck drivers said they use a load board on a desktop or laptop at least several times a month, and 33% use one every day for their business.

“Desktop when doing office work, mobile app when on the road.”

“Mobile app for daily updates. Desktop for weekly planning.”

For many truck drivers, searching on a desktop computer comes in handy when zooming in on load details or comparing multiple loads at the same time. Our phone app is convenient in your hand, while the desktop version is there when you need a bigger screen. And unlike other load board competitors, you can bid and book directly with many brokers from our load board app, both on your phone and on your desktop. And, yes, it’s 100% free. 


5 THINGS YOU CAN DO FROM YOUR DESKTOP

  1. BID & BOOK DIRECTLY

TruckSmarter is already the only free load board app that includes all of our features without a subscription, including the ability to bid and book directly, with no hidden fees. Now, in addition to our mobile app, you can bid and book straight from your desktop or laptop computer. Get the same details and info that you need, right in front of you. You’re one click or phone call away from booking your truck load.

  1. SAVE YOUR FAVORITE LOADS

Now, any searches you’ve saved on your phone can be viewed on your desktop and vice versa, for a seamless experience. You get the same, clear and intuitive interface with only the features you want, so you can find it fast and book it first. Easily see recently viewed loads, saved searches, plus your past bid and booked loads. Your saved searches sync with your devices so that you can pick up right where you left off.

  1. COMPARE MULTIPLE LOADS SIDE BY SIDE

Side-by-side load comparisons are one of the dream desktop tools truck drivers ask for the most, so we’re excited to finally offer this feature. 

No more going back and forth between tabs trying to remember the details of each load. Now you can open load details into separate tabs and conveniently compare them side by side on your desktop screen, making it so much easier and faster to choose the right load for you. Just use the ↗ icon to open load details in a new tab. Simple, fast, easy.

  1. COMBINE YOUR LOAD BOARDS

Just like on our mobile app, you can see all your load boards in one place to help you streamline your day-to-day operations. Manage your already connected load boards and easily add new ones to your dashboard.

  1. FILTER YOUR SEARCHES

Searching for the right truck load can take a lot of time and money, especially when you’re trying to avoid an iffy broker just as much as you’re looking for one you can trust. Just like on our mobile app, with our desktop version our powerful search filters make it easy to block a broker from your searches or look for the one you want—and it’s all free. You can filter your searches by:

  • rate per mile

  • pick up & drop off location

  • broker

  • deadhead

  • weight

  • distance

  • load requirements

  • freight type

  • and much more

You can even filter your searches to hide loads that don’t disclose how much you’d earn.

Are you ready to get started? There is a lot more for you to discover in our new desktop experience, and even more features to come—this is just the beginning. Log on or create your account now and earn more with our free load board at app.trucksmarter.com.
