Transforming the World of Freight

Go By Truck, a social media giant and news outlet for the trucking industry, is announcing the launch of a transformational product. The Go By Truck freight-management application allows shippers, carriers and drivers to conduct business in the free market and the eliminates excessive costs associated with today's broker-dependent model, something no other product has done for the freight and logistics industries.

Available online at www.gobytruck.com, the innovative technology addresses the problems that slow down transportation and drive up costs. Go By Truck owners Dawn Strobel and Kevin Hiller designed the management platform to create a better business environment for everyone involved.

"There is a fundamental lack of gratitude in today's trucking industry," explains Hiller. "We believe that if shippers and carriers start asking what they can do for each other, their own businesses will profit, as well. Gratitude and give-back are the foundation of the Go By Truck application."

To achieve a business model based on honesty and appreciation, Go By Truck created a number of proprietary technologies.

The application utilizes an online banking platform to benefit both shippers and carriers. Businesses can negotiate transactions based on the spot market with real-time pricing. This means that loads are delivered faster and trucks stay full. Invoicing and auditing are fully automated, so shippers can release payment upon delivery, making the process more efficient for everyone. Owner-operators no longer have to turn over a portion of their profits to a factoring company; while shippers have all the documentation they need right at their fingertips.

Security and safety are top priorities for the Go By Truck team. All carriers and shippers on the Go By Truck platform are verified businesses. Carriers must comply with top safety standards. The transparency built into the application holds each party accountable to the other, a condition of doing business Go By Truck insists on.

"Kevin and I recognize it is getting tougher and tougher for smaller carriers to compete in the industry regardless of the fact that they are hauling the majority of the nation's freight," explains Strobel. "We saw technology leaving trucking in the dust, and we knew we had to do something to bring innovation to the industry."

Go By Truck's innovation includes its freight listing and finding tool, which automatically matches carriers with loads based on trailer type, parameters and space available. This technology saves carriers time searching through static load boards and speeds up the process of freight matching to get the shipper's product on the road as quickly as possible.

Go By Truck also offers a locating app for drivers as a companion to its freight management tool. Installed on drivers' mobile devices, it allows carriers to find their drivers and shippers to pinpoint their shipment's exact location. The unprecedented design does not save a history of the drivers' locations, so privacy is never an issue.

Because Go By Truck recognizes the value of gratitude in all aspects of life, the company has created a rewards program for all of its users. Any driver, shipper or carrier who recommends the Go By Truck platform to a new user gets rewarded every time that user makes a transaction. Referrals to the Go By Truck community have limitless value, and the rewards reflect that.

How is Go By Truck Different?
Go By Truck is designed to offer solutions for drivers, carriers and shippers by tightening relationships, eliminating unnecessary expense and increasing transparency.

  • For the Driver: The driver is the heart of the trucking industry. Go By Truck's reward system is open to anyone using the system, but it is especially designed to help drivers develop their contacts and build their savings. We believe in offering the driver a better path to ownership.
  • For the Carrier: Carriers using the Go By Truck application are using new technology that allows them to match their empty trucks with the right loads. Carriers quote directly to shippers, so they no longer have to navigate the burdensome process of dealing with a broker.
