The most trusted mobile app for North American truckers, Trucker Path, has launched COMMANDtm. COMMANDtm is the industry’s first transportation system innovated to both enhance driver relationships and manage operations. The new Operations & Driver Relationship (ODR) platform integrates the driver-centric Trucker Path app, with over a million users, with operational tools available in conventional transportation management systems.
"Our ODR platform is a new type of TMS that offers unrivalled driver relationship features, advanced management capabilities, and third-party solution connections to simplify day-to-day activities while also assisting drivers in making the most of their time on the road." "With our ODR platform, truckers don't have to go back and forth between our popular Trucker Path app and the company's TMS system." Navigation, Parking, track & trace, and operations are all conveniently located in one location."

It was only natural for us to create a platform that improves driver quality of life while offering the operational efficiencies that businesses require. "We've produced something that should have been in the business years ago; we took what we had, both in terms of successful goods and integrations with other well-known third-parties, and added operational capabilities that were desperately needed.
