Fleets and shippers looking to hire drivers may soon start to receive links to secured driver profiles by email from a new app called TruckerLine.
Outset Partners Inc. has developed the web-based platform and mobile app, which allows professional drivers to easily build professional profiles to manage their careers and better represent themselves to prospective employers, brokers and shippers.
TruckerLine enables drivers to quickly scan copies of their professional documents with their mobile device (CDL, resume, TWIC cards, insurance documents, etc.); while tamperproof documentation such as MVRs and driver-initiated background checks can be quickly ordered and delivered to their TruckerLine profile.
“With TruckerLine, drivers can submit applications and bids that demonstrate a high degree of professionalism and provide both shippers and employers with all of the right information,” said Chad Cashin, CEO and founder of Outset. “The applications and bids would come in the form of an email invitation with a temporary password to access the driver’s documents and profile information.”
TruckerLine’s approach is gaining the interest of carriers who see its unique potential, said Cashin. Core-Mark, a Fortune 400 supplier and marketer of Fresh and consumer package goods to retail industry, has partnered with Outset to develop a more efficient way for carriers to recruit drivers via TruckerLine, while ultimately keeping the app driver-friendly.
Joe Wegener, vice president of human resources at Core-Mark, said he believes that “TruckerLine will make its users increasingly sought-after in the industry by enabling employers to make faster and more accurate hiring decisions, which ultimately benefits everyone involved. At Core-Mark, we value a diverse professional truck driver workforce. We believe our driver model is attractive to individuals who want to be home most nights and weekends.”
The TruckerLine mobile app is available for download in the Google Play and Apple App stores, and will be free for drivers, outside of small fees for optional background reports. Outset never provides carriers, brokers or any third-party access to driver information without explicit approval, said Cashin.
