All you have to do is call the number listed on the truckload search result and discuss the shipment with the freigth broker or direct shipper.
Yes, we have a lot of brokers and especially direct shipers that are not anywhere else. Since we don't charge for anything and make posting loads super easy we have a lot of shippers and freight brokers looking for trucks.
We do make a little bit of money on advertising but the main reason is that the founder of Trulos Transportation believes in the internet and sees Trulos as a way to help change the industry a little bit by putting great tools in the hands of truckers for free. If we can help provide a tool that enables a trucker to save time or money then we feel we have helped their bottom line. The ability for us to help truckers is what gets us working on this site everyday. We do like money but we don't actually make enough to support us ful time. Everyone that helps with this site works other jobs to support our passion to MAKE TRUCKING GREAT.

  • Carrier Log in

YES. Everything is locked down with your username and password. We host the product in the cloud. We back up the database nightly and the application is cloud based hosted on either the Amazon or Microsoft or Google cloud platforms. We have back ups ready to go at all three just in case.
We can help you get started and support if things are not working. We are only a few people strong and we still sometimes work other jobs during the day to make a living but we love our customers and will help as fast as we can.
We think the system is worth a pretty penny. We used to sell the system for a monthly subscription fee and have brokers transacting millions in sales through our dispatch software. We developed it to sell but we realized that we actually would rather give it away. We may sell an online version again but we are actually hoping that we are able to generate enough on other advertising oppurtunities and consulting services to always keep a free version available.
We want to MAKE TRUCKING GREAT. We solidly believe that by unleashing assounding free products in the trucking marketplace we are going to lower the cost for every trucker. Why would someone pay for a service when you can get it for free. We don't believe that truckers should be charged for everything. The free load board started a long time ago when the founder was a database and technology building projects for some of the worlds biggest truck lines. It became apparent that the load board technology is so easy to build and distribute that it shoudl be free. Why are companies still charging 100 of dollars a month for prodcuts that add very little value. We keep the truckers bottom line in mnd on everything and then we develope products and see the advertising on them. We are going make BIG Business pay for these and make technology free to those that will benefit most from saving a few dollars.
Advertising from a few sponcers and through users clicking on ads they like from the site. If everyone would click on an advertisement or use a product it would be awesome. We would be able to work on developing new trucking products full time. We appreciate every user we have and want to say thank you for reading this far in to a page full of information. It must mean that you like us :D .
Trulos was founded in about 2003. We started serving up free loads full time around then. We are still a small company that is able to create technology super fast when asked or we see a need and have grown into one of the best destinations on the Internet for truckers.
We have a JSON integration where you can send us GPS coordinates, radius and equipment and receive back all the freight in the area. You can post this to your map or dispatch system. It is all free right now but may need to charge if we out grow our servers.
We are working on a way to have our dispatch users request quotes from drivers in real time. Our goal is to enable the technology to actualy streamline and help companies facilitate relationships rather then simply replace the phone call. Another idea is to create mini networks or relationships between the carrier and broker or carrier and shipper that enables them to pick up freight or assign it automatically to an available driver. Then we will work on making the trucks fly over traffic and be able to land like a helicopter at a shipper's location.
