Roadrunner launched its new Haul Now app, designed for long-haul owner-operators and teams.
Haul Now allows drivers to maximize the profitability of their trucking business while providing them the freedom to work when they want and go where they want.
“Haul Now is a game-changer because it gives drivers autonomy over their businesses,” says Roadrunner’s head of technology, operations and linehaul Tomasz Jamroz. “For all the talk about the Uberization of freight, this is the real deal – drivers can finally schedule their own loads. The more miles they drive, the more pay they earn. This is consistent with our mission of empowering entrepreneurs to pursue the American dream, Haul Now means less downtime and more earnings for drivers.”
- Haul Now provides a single place for drivers to choose loads, plan consecutive trips, update status, check settlements, review routes and loads, contact terminal dispatchers, receive important reminders in real time and reach out for help if necessary.
- Using GPS location and hours of service (HOS) available, Haul Now allows drivers to find available loads at their desired terminal and filter by the number of miles they want to drive. Roadrunner’s proprietary algorithm ensures optimal driver assignment by preselecting teams vs. solo drivers, or selecting hazmat if required to assign the best drivers and ensure strict service and fast transit standards are being met.
- The app utilizes the latest tracking technologies, machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence as well as Internet of Things integration.
“The Roadrunner technology team has worked on this app that utilizes the latest technology advancements in app development,” says David Rumpf, director of technology. “It will be available at launch in both the Google Play and Apple App stores. We have designed this app working closely with our drivers, linehaul team, and our UX/UI product team, and we are extremely proud to demonstrate our internal technology capabilities.”
“Roadrunner is revolutionizing the LTL industry, starting with our long-haul driver partners,” says Chris Jamroz, Roadrunner executive chairman of the board. “When we started developing Haul Now, our latest technology project, we set out to create the world’s best app for drivers and demonstrate that Roadrunner is the ‘Smart Long Haul’ choice. The feedback we’ve received has been overwhelming. We are excited because we’re just getting started.”
