DAT is another popular app for truckers traveling within North America. It contains multiple tools for trip planning (interactive maps, credit scores, etc.) and allows drivers to use them efficiently. It collects and stores up-to-date data about fuel prices, available parking spaces, rest stops, etc.

The application also provides all the necessary capabilities for searching and booking cargo transportation orders, planning and optimizing trips, and receiving payments for completed orders (this takes up to 24 hours). 

As for the disadvantages of this software, its service time is inconvenient for the work schedules of some drivers. Also, some drivers complain that they have to spend a lot of time calling cargo due to the limited information posted.

Super Dispatch

Super Dispatch is a fairly popular software solution for facilitating communication between carriers, shippers, and brokers. 

In particular, carriers receive a centralized solution that combines the functionality of several highly targeted applications, including some autonomous ones. This allows them to cover the vast majority of their work tasks, from booking loads to receiving payments. As for shippers and brokers, they can benefit from Super Dispatch's proprietary technology, which provides them with operational visibility, real-time freight tracking, and fast, simple, and cost-effective scalability.

Speaking of disadvantages, some users note the presence of bugs. Also, many are not satisfied with the existing reporting functionality, the lack of robust accounts payable/receivable, the weak customer service, and the inability to send invoices directly from the application.

Truckstop Go

Truckstop Go is a well-known SaaS solution for freight coordination. Truckstop Go differs from all aforementioned trucking apps in that it provides users with only verified orders and only verified drivers. You'll also find advanced, easy-to-use decision-making tools to help you choose the best rates based on the number of available trucks and the number of orders based on origin and destination.

In general, this is a very convenient truck driver app that will solve many standard problems, such as truck overload, traffic congestion on specific routes, etc. And, of course, it is worth noting the presence of API access, which will ensure seamless integration with the rest of your company’s software fleet.

At the same time, this product is not without disadvantages, such as the unavailability of a free trial version, the lack of additional opportunities to promote offers of new drivers and carriers, the presence of misleading information about loading, as well as frequent pop-ups and surveys.

Fuel Apps

Another useful type of software is fuel applications that help drivers plan their routes taking into account nearby gas stations. Below, we will consider the three most popular of them, which can be used by drivers traveling within North America.

Fuel Apps


With this one of the best truck navigation apps, your drivers will quickly find the best gas stations in the US with the lowest fuel prices. Thanks to a built-in interactive map updated in real time, they can both plan routes in advance and navigate directly on the road.

Weather Apps

And, of course, don’t forget that the weather can also affect the work schedule of your drivers and the speed of order completion. This means that they should have at their hands mobile weather forecasting applications as well.

Weather Apps

My Radar

MyRadar provides general information about potential radar precipitation in the location where your drivers are currently located. The solution also provides high-definition radar, as well as NOAA alerts on weather, temperatures, forecasts, and detailed hurricane tracking.

This data includes current temperature, daily highs and lows, chance of rain, humidity, weather changes, wind speed, visibility information, and much more. The application also allows users to quickly check the weather in several different places.

Weather Channel

This real-time updated weather app for truckers will keep them informed about all upcoming weather events. The application has a built-in live map to track storms and hurricanes, as well as severe weather (rain, snow, ice, etc.) and an air quality index (to determine the location of forest fires). Thanks to this, your drivers will be able to receive instant notifications about an approaching storm or anything else that may affect their trip planning.
