A Trucking App Made Just for You

October 13, 2021

Strategic Loads Pushed Right to Your Phone

As you already know, we were once in your shoes. Running a trucking business was, and still is, hard work. We saw the daily friction truckers face—and knew there had to be a better way. From finding and booking good loads, rampant communication errors, and all the unexpected things that happen over the road, this pain inspired us to create SmartHop.

So today, we are taking one more step towards relieving some of that stress and making it easier to run your trucks. We are pleased to announce the launch of our new trucking app to help you run your business.

Introducing the new SmartHop Mobile App.

You might be thinking—what's the big deal? Everyone has a trucking app. Well, that's true, but do their apps serve you smart load suggestions without you having to lift a finger?

Ours does.

And these loads are "smart" for a reason. They aren't just great paying—they are hand-picked and tailored just for you. We factor in your preferences and only suggest loads that will work for you and give you a high monthly return on the miles you drive.

Here’s how it works:

  • 01 Get Notified: Once our system finds the perfect load (or loads) for you, our trucking app sends a notification directly to your mobile device. You can view your personalized load recommendations on the Suggested Loads screen.
  • 02 View Load Details: See everything you need to know about the suggested load, including stop details and whether there are multiple pick-ups or deliveries. To see a map of where the load will take you, click the Strategy Details option.
  • 03 Make a Selection: After reading the load details, you’ll have the option to accept, bid on, or dismiss the load. If you choose to submit a bid, SmartHop will evaluate it and notify you when it’s cleared.
  • 04 Get Confirmation: Once you’ve accepted the load, it will appear as ‘Pending.’ SmartHop will clear the offer with the broker, and once the broker has confirmed the load, it will appear as ‘Booked.’ You can still view the load details at any time.
  • 05 Track Your Performance: Your miles, RPMs, and earnings are tracked on your profile page. Watch your business grow and see where you’re getting the most bang for your buck.

No more dead-heading out of a bad market or sitting idle trying to find a decent load—our technology and app provides you the critical information to drive more strategically. We like to think of ourselves as the Expedia or Kayak of load boards. Our app can scan thousands of loads from different sources and identify those that fit your requirements—in seconds.

During your onboard process, we make sure to capture all business-critical preferences (rates, weight, routes, regions, brokers, etc.) so that we send you ONLY load recommendations that align with your priorities.

And to top it off, all loads booked with us come with our Stress-Free Guarantee, so you can rest assured that you're covered when an unforeseen lumper, layover, detention, or TONU occurs.

Finally, a trucking app that keeps you focused on maximizing profits for your business!
