123Loadboard.com, an Internet load board for the transportation industry, has launched its newest load planning technology, Load Planner, to help professional truck drivers save time and maximize profits by taking into consideration driving time, deadhead mileage, fuel and toll costs.
Load Planner reduces the time required to locate a sequence of the highest potential paying loads to plan a trip without having to perform countless load searches, according to the load service provider.
“In keeping with our commitment to simplifying life for the owner operator, our Load Planner tool gives professional truck drivers the ability to plan ahead multiple loads over a selected period of time, given an origin and an optional final destination. Then with the help of our state-of-the-art freight search engine, we locate a sequence of the most profitable loads taking into account total mileage, driving time, deadhead mileage, fuel and toll costs,” said Loarn Metzen, vice president of 123Loadboard.com.
The Load Planner automatically sorts trips based on profitability, according to Metzen. “This ensures that you will always work with the most profitable loads. Should you remove a load from a trip, our system will automatically search for the next highest paying load to complete your trip. The end result is exactly what professional truck drivers are looking for – increased profitability and more time spent with their families.”
“Now with Load Planner doing the leg work, truckers will have more time to find the ideal loads, routes and best rates to maximize their profits. Unlike some competitor tools that limit the amount of loads per trip and don’t calculate profitability, our Load Planner returns multiple trips each consisting of one or more loads with revenue/profitability and trip analysis. The ability to capitalize profits at the touch of a button will translate into less research and more time to determine how you plan on spending that extra profit,” said AJ Sansoye, director of operations at 123Loadboard.com.
