A new construction industry start-up from Pennsylvania has launched a dump-truck-specific load board as an online service, accessible from both desktop and mobile browsers, that enables members to find trucks or loads.
Dump truck owners can receive real-time load notifications via e-mail and text message from DumpTruckLoads.com, allowing them to work with contractors outside of their network and to contact the contractor as quickly as possible, securing work for their trucks.
Dump truck owners are also able to search for loads outside of their local area, giving them an easy way to reduce deadhead miles on longer return trips, increasing revenue.
The new board is the creation of Steven Kolbe, an entrepreneur with almost 50 years of experience in the construction industry. His businesses have ranged from highway construction and paving to quarry reclamation.
The service is free to join and use. It was designed to be easy to access from the office or the jobsite. The board and its parent company, MyLogic, Inc., are headquartered in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley and the service is available nationwide. Visit the board’s website here.
