By at August 22, 2017 | 12:56 PM | 0 Comment

Where are you? If you’re not listed somewhere that makes it easy for fleet managers, owner operators and carrier dispatchers to find you, you're forfeiting a huge percentage of options in a sea of new opportunity.  A newer, smarter,  more efficient network has emerged demanding an upgrade from old web phone book technology.

Posting loads vs clicking a pin and calling the number listed for pilot cars and flaggers. It's all elementary my dear friends. Put yourself in the seat of your customers.

The slowest time of the year

By at March 11, 2016 | 4:24 PM | 1 Comments

Taking advantage of the slowest time of the year. The absolute slowest time of the year. I suppose one can look at it in two different ways. On one hand you've got no work and the money that you stashed away can only last so long so you're under pressure to find more work.

Getting the most out of your pilot car listing.

By at May 3, 2015 | 11:22 AM | 0 Comment

Simple ways to pump up your pilot car company. The web is inter-connected in so many ways much deeper than most of us all realize. There are umpteen thousands of rules written by the masters of the weberverse that dictate what the end results will be at any given moment. To even fathom going over 10% of them would be pointless (and possibly useless) but we have learned a

Finally a live posting app for pilot cars is close to release.

By at January 23, 2015 | 2:23 AM | 0 Comment

Live pilot car posting app. When we finally released PiloTrac a little over a year ago our main concern was releasing good with a mobile phone app. Pilot car company drivers already have their hands full with too many other responsibilities without having to worry about logging into a computer to post where and when  they will be available at the end of their trip.
