About Trucker Tools

The transportation and logistics industry is at a major inflection point; brokers, carriers, and shippers alike are undergoing a massive digital transformation. At Trucker Tools, we are on a mission to empower freight brokers and carriers by enabling them to find, book, and track freight with efficiency and build enduring relationships to grow their businesses.

Our mobile app improves the lives of truck drivers by helping them book loads and find the best fuel prices, parking and routes, all in a single app. We’re the #1 downloaded app in transportation, with 2M+ downloads and 250K+ carriers that use us every week. Our tracking platform helps brokers get accurate real time visibility into their loads with the highest tracking success rates in the industry. Our freight matching platform gives brokers real time access to clean capacity from 250K carriers at their fingertips so they cover more loads with less work.

We’re been recognized across the industry as a leader in innovation in transportation and logistics, by platforms including FreightWaves, FreightTech100, and Gartner. We’re backed by Alpine Software Group (alpinesg.com), a leading software private equity firm that buys and grows world class vertical SaaS businesses. We’re hitting an inflection point in our trajectory and grew triple digits in the last year. Our team includes team members from leaders in tech, finance and logistics, including Uber, J.P. Morgan, DAT, UPS, Nolan Transportation Group, GlobalTranz, Tive, and Axle Payments. We’d love to have you be a part of this exciting journey.
