When you open the app for the first time, it will request that you change the app settings so that GPS is always ON. You can accept so that the app can automatically update your job status while you're on a load.
Does it cost anything to use the app?
No. It is free to download and free to use. We charge shippers a fee for finding them quality carriers.

If you have your own operating authority, drive your own truck and book your own loads, choose Owner Operator. If you are a dispatcher for a fleet but do not drive, select Dispatcher.
What do I do if I’m both an Owner Operator and a Dispatcher?
If you are an Owner Operator but you also dispatch other drivers under the same authority, sign up as a Dispatcher. After you've created your account, you will be able to add yourself as a fleet driver under this account.
When driving, you can log into the app using your fleet driver account to update job statuses on the go.
