CarriersEdge offers mobile training app for drivers

June 8, 2016

CarriersEdge, providers of online safety and compliance training tools for the North American transportation industry, has announced a new mobile training app for truck drivers. The dedicated online training app can be used to access the company’s complete library of orientation and refresher courses and knowledge tests, as well as custom content from trucking companies.

“The new CarriersEdge mobile app is a reflection of the shift to mobile devices that we’ve seen in recent years,” said Jane Jazrawy, chief executive officer at CarriersEdge. “More and more fleets are providing smart phones and tablets to drivers and are using mobile apps to increase convenience and improve efficiency.

“Having a dedicated mobile app for driver training makes a lot of sense. There are generic productivity apps that can be used to run basic training programs, but until now there hasn’t been anything dedicated exclusively to driver training and we felt that needed to change.”

CarriersEdge offers a wide range of courses on Defensive Driving, Winter Driving, HOS & Logbooks (US & Canada), Practical Cargo Securement, Hazardous Materials, CSA, Fire Safety, Drug and Alcohol, Recognizing & Preventing Fatigue and Maximizing Fuel Efficiency.

Features of the CarriersEdge mobile app include push notifications so fleets can notify drivers of new training assignments or when deadlines for completing courses are approaching. The app also simplifies access for drivers. Once the app is installed, drivers stay logged in and don’t have to remember a password. Resuming training is as simple as tapping an icon.

The CarriersEdge mobile app is available on Google Play and at the Apple App Store for IOS and Android devices.
