Trucker Tools adds Simple Truck to shipment tracking platform

Trucker Tools announced an agreement with technology and services provider Simple Truck that will enable access to real-time truck location data from Simple Truck ELD units within the Trucker Tools Smart Capacity carrier and capacity management platform. Simple Truck has over 4,000 of its devices installed and operating with independent owner operators and small truckload fleets.

According to the company, the provision of ELD data is permission-based. The truck owner and/or driver controls access to their ELD. Once activated, in-transit data from the ELD moves seamlessly into the Trucker Tools platform, accessible through the Trucker Tools Smart Capacity app on a smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer. The platform’s strict controls and permission-based access ensures no other ELD data outside of location updates is shared.

For truckers, the benefit is flexibility, control, convenience and a quick, simple solution to improving tracking compliance for customers. Activation can be instituted within a day once a request from a shipper or broker is received, and driver permission obtained.

The Trucker Tools mobile app is available for both Android- and Apple-powered smartphones and is provided free of charge to independent truckers and small fleets.
