Getting the most out of your pilot car listing.

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. It

Live posting is a tool you don't ever want to overlook. Why? It's simple. If visitors can see where you are going to be locate in the future they can plan for the

Since the system uses position based technology and technically since a PO box is not a physical address the Google (TM) GIS system can't locate where you are at so your listing will come out in the wrong place on the live map. If you absolutely have to use an address like 1 Main street for the town that you live in. In fact, use anything besides a PO

Unless you're signing up to only post loads don't sign up for a free account. The system will only let you have one account and a free account does nothing but let trucking companies and pilot car brokers post loads. Then when you go to upgrade if you don't have everything in your account perfectly entered the system can cause problems with your listing. We're having our

There’s nothing like live pilot car posting.

By at May 18, 2014 | 5:59 AM | 0 Comment

Your company is in the right place. Call it whatever you want but posting you available pilot car locations live is the way to go. Trucking companies no longer have to wade through or call down a list to try and locate the right truck escort. They simply click and call the closest company to the desired load origin. This is a much more efficient system than a list based
