About the Haul NOW App

Altogether, the Illinois trucking company provides more than 2,000 truck drivers nationwide with hauls every day. To handle this capacity, the company has a fleet of 1,000 trucks and 1,900 trailers. In addition, Roadrunner Freight is providing the Haul NOW mobile.

Michael Rapken, serving as the chief information officer for Roadrunner Transportation Systems, said, “Constantly focusing on technology enhancements is crucial in our industry and extremely important to our company. The launch of this application is just one of the ways we are using technology to emphasize the driver experience. Driver safety is a priority for Roadrunner Freight, therefore, our app requires users to declare that their vehicle is in park to eliminate driver distractions.”

The app is designed to allow drivers for Roadrunner Freight to book LTL freight loads for the carrier more easily. By using the app, the company expects its drivers to see an improvement in communication between drivers and dispatchers. In addition, drivers and dispatchers will be able to view documents and information about loads via the app.

This will reduce missed messages and streamline the time it takes for communications to be carried out. As a result, Roadrunner Freight should see even more gains in the time it takes drivers to get loads delivered on time.

According to Frank Hurst, who is Roadrunner Freight President, “Continued investment in technology, starting with this app, advances our mission of being the destination of choice for independent contractors and drivers. This is a huge step in improving the transparency of our network and streamlining communication between Roadrunner Freight and our customers, independent contractors and partners.”

Hurst continued, “Feedback from our ICs allowed us to customize this application and improve their experience when partnering with Roadrunner Freight. This application will have a tremendous impact for our drivers, beginning with increased mileage and reduced downtime. We could not be more excited to debut this new tool!”
