Nixa, MO (PRWEB) August 05, 2013
BulkLoadsNow.com, a fast-growing bulk freight matching site, launched a new Android app for it's carrier members. This upgrade comes a year after the loadboard’s initial launch of smartphone apps. “There was so much interest, so many downloads of our first smartphone apps we immediately began work on apps that would offer even more functionality,” said Jared Flinn, Operating Partner.
The new Android app now offers nearly all the same functionality as the full website, plus a few features specifically requested by bulk freight carrier members. Anyone who installs the app to their Android phone for free can post their truck, read forums, find washouts, and DOT scales. In addition to all the free featues, premium members can find loads from their current location, search loads by origin or by destination. “The new app will allow us to continue to add more features for our members,” Matt Fredin, Operating Partner said. “With the app, we are providing the same features in an easier and faster type of communication.”
Smart phone apps are a growing trend in the transportation industry. BulkLoadsNow.com apps are tailored specifically for bulk freight of the agriculture sector. “We knew that our current users needed this to help them do business on the road without the need of a computer. With over 25 percent of truckers using smartphone apps to do business there was a huge demand for an app in the bulk industry,” Flinn said. “The increasing number of downloads daily and the amount of posts to our forum from the smart phone clearly shows how popular our app is.”
The app can be found by going to the Google Play Store and searching 'BulkLoadsNow' or online at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ls.bulkloads&hl=en
