RESTON, VA — December 6, 2018 — Trucker Tools LLC, which provides Smart Capacity, a shipment visibility, carrier capacity management and predictive freight-matching solution for the transportation industry, announced today it has been recognized as a Representative Vendor in Gartner's November 2018 Market Guide for Real-Time Visibility Providers.

According to the report, authored by Bart DeMuynck and Christian Titze, VP Analysts at Gartner, "Commercial customers and consumers continue to have increased demands about real-time visibility of their orders and shipments... A lack of visibility creates internal and external inefficiencies in warehousing, fleet, yard and transportation operations both inbound and outbound, and leads to an increase in transportation costs... With the shortage of carrier capacity, shippers that can create efficiencies with increased visibility become the "shipper of choice." Those that cannot, continue to struggle with securing capacity and with contracted carriers accepting their tenders."

"The capacity crunch and the increasing pressure on businesses and their freight brokers to rein in transportation costs have accelerated the need for real-time, highly accurate visibility into truck capacity, as well as reliable, continually updated information on shipments in transit," said Prasad Gollapalli, founder and CEO of Trucker Tools.

"Capacity planning and execution platforms that deploy sophisticated algorithms and time-saving workflows solve a huge pain point for brokers - quickly and reliably matching available trucks with available loads, while eliminating stale data and non-productive work," Gollapalli continued. "Gaining that real-time visibility, flexibility and speed-to-decision requires an intuitive system that connects drivers, fleets and brokers in a common, collaborative capacity management network."

Trucker Tools Smart Capacity, introduced in September 2017, is used by many of the industry's top brokers and 3PLs for predictive, digital freight-matching and carrier capacity and relationship management. It's integrated with the Trucker Tools Mobile Driver App, launched in 2013, which has been downloaded by more than 500,000 truckers and has over 100,000 small fleets as active users.

The smart-phone app provides 16 of the most sought-after information resources and support tools truckers want for managing their business on the road. The Trucker Tools product portfolio also includes Load Track, which provides smart-phone GPS-based precise visibility into loads and trucks in transit and automates the process of gathering timely visibility information for brokers.
