With rapid advancements in technology, the trucking industry has been revolutionized in more ways than one. Truck drivers are no exception to relying on their smartphones for critical information and activities, virtually replacing CB radios. Many apps have been developed to help truck drivers be more efficient and make more money on the road.
Top 5 Truck Driving Apps
1. Trucker Path
With over one million downloads, Trucker Path is your all-in-one app to find nearby truck stops, weigh stations, and more. You can also join in on the discussion with other truck drivers through their built-in forum board. In addition, you’ll receive real-time updates on the cheapest fuel prices available to you.
We know that parking is limited, and truck drivers can be particularly choosy about their parking. For Jubitz truck stop, ParkMobile makes it easy to find, reserve, and pay for parking in under a minute. Save time and remove the inconvenience of waiting for a spot.
3. NOAA Weather Radar
Track the weather conditions of your entire route with the NOAA Weather Radar app. This app relays the most accurate and up-to-date information of weather across the country, all the while giving you features like bookmarks and custom weather alerts for your most frequent destinations.
4. Google Maps
No truck driver should hit the road without a reliable navigation system one way or another. Google Maps remains just as popular for truck drivers as for everyday motorists because of its capabilities to deliver real-time traffic insights and alternative routes for your truck.
5. DAT Load Board
DAT Solutions has been around for a long time and got its start at our Jubitz truck stop in 1978 with Dial-A-Truck monitors. With the launch of their DAT Load Board app, it only shows their continued commitment to providing great service for their users.
