Trucker Path has developed an app that provides crowdsourced information for commercial truckers in the U.S. and connects them to shippers who have loads to move. In addition to potential assignments and logistical assistance, the app lets drivers share useful information such as locations of truck stops, rest areas, weigh stations and truck washes.
How it makes money
Trucker Path offers much of its information for free but gets most of its revenue from monthly fees it charges for premium packages that give carriers access to the truckloads marketplace and to route planning.
Business it could disrupt
