Truckers Beware

7 of America’s Most Haunted Roads 

By Matthew Meeks

Whether it’s heading down to a local attraction like a haunted corn maze, or just curling up on the couch and watching a cult classic horror film – the truth is clear – people like to be scared.

But attractions and movies are just actors and special effects…some people are looking for something a little more “real.” An old trend is gaining popularity again this year – visiting locations that are supposedly…actually haunted.

Most people know at least a couple famous “haunted” structures in the U.S. like the infamous Amityville house in New York or the Stanley Hotel in Colorado (made famous by Stephen King’s The Shining). But what about haunted roads?

Driver Retention 

with Mobile Automation?

Introducing: Engage 

Transflo is now giving fleets the ability to measure driver satisfaction directly from within the Transflo Mobile+ app using the People Element employee engagement platform.

Survey notification on driver’s phone.

People Element’s platform is a powerful and intuitive technology that fleet managers and HR professionals can use to create, automate, and deliver custom surveys to drivers via their mobile device. It can measure driver engagement, their commitment to the organization, and intention to stay, while helping employers take a proactive approach to addressing turnover and the cost associated with it.

Traditional survey methods such as email or phone calls are easy for a driver to put off or ignore. Transflo Engage leverages the People Element platform and Transflo Mobile+ to provide a simpler and more convenient survey experience since the driver is responding to questions within the mobile app he or she uses as part of an everyday workflow.

With custom surveys and instantaneous feedback, managers and HR professionals can make fast, strategic, data-driven decisions about how to manage driver satisfaction while maintaining a high level of engagement.

Staying Afloat in a Flood of Freight Brokers

Transport Topics reported on a 29% growth in freight volumes this year, which sounds like good news for freight brokers (Transport Topics, 2019). But the increase in activity has only brought a surge of competition among brokers trying to win loads and the capacity to move them.

The question on broker’s minds is: what can I do to be more efficient, get more business, and build stronger relationships with carriers?
