TransCore has upgraded its Driverlink online recruitment center to make it easier for carriers to source and hire new drivers and owner-operators.
The enhanced site, www.driverlink.com, now includes automatic e-mail alerts to drivers and carriers, as well as information resources for professional drivers. It is designed to help TransCore's DAT Services and Link Logistics carrier subscribers cope with the driver labor market.
Originally launched in 2000, Driverlink is a web-based job hub that allows drivers to post resumes, search for employment, and receive job leads from carriers throughout North America. More than 5,000 drivers and more than 400 carriers currently use the service.
In other news, TransCore and the Owner Operator Independent Drivers' Association have signed an agreement to offer a load matching service specifically for OOIDA members. The new MembersEdge service will provide OOIDA members with full access to a jointly defined and co-branded version of TransCore's load matching services with customized product packages and discounted rates. MembersEdge is designed to make small fleets and owner-operators more competitive through access to TransCore's DAT freight matching marketplace.
OOIDA members using the new service can search loads and post trucks using various methods, including the Internet, fax, or via phone. A toll-free number will provide members access to focused sales and support staff.
