Truck Driver is the #1 job in America; they’re the unsung heroes that make our economy work. At Convoy, truck drivers are what make our business possible.
We have always held the goal of improving truck drivers’ lives as a core tenet of why we do what we do. As this industry continues to change and evolve, we’ll play a mindful and conscientious role in helping truck drivers succeed now and in the future.
As it turns out, of all the miles that truck drivers travel across the country, 40% of those trucks are empty. Let’s think about that–40% of the carbon impact from trucks today is because of empty mileage.
Our vision is for a world that operates efficiently. Technology can bring ease and efficiency to the supply chain industry and improve trucking. As more truckers and companies shipping freight become part of our network, our software will create smarter routes that efficiently batch shipments for our truck drivers, helping them and their small businesses thrive, saving on transportation costs and curtailing environmental waste.
For every 1% improvement in truck routes and utilization, we can save nearly 400 million gallons of fuel from being consumed, 100 million hours from being wasted and 3 billion miles from being driven each year.
