LAKE ZURICH, Ill., March 23, 2020 (Newswire.com) - As the world begins to shut down, truck drivers continue to work around the clock to move medical supplies, water, groceries, and more across the US. "Unfortunately, truck drivers don't get a break. Without drivers on the road our economy would stop," said Mike Nervick, Sleek Fleet CEO. "These men and women don't get the credit they deserve."
To help drivers during this time of crisis, Sleek Fleet, a transportation technology company, is offering an industry-best payment time of 4 hours or less at no charge to the driver. "Once a driver submits an electronic proof of delivery, we'll pay within 4 business hours, typically closer to 1 or 2 hours," said Mary Murphy, Sleek Fleet VP of Operations. The average payment time is 30-35 days.
Drivers also have direct access to large shippers via an exclusive mobile app for small carriers with 50 trucks or less. The app allows drivers to bid on loads directly. They name their price and know instantly if it was accepted or declined. To maximize margin, the driver keeps 100% of their bid. "The goal is to cut out waste – the middle man – so drivers can maximize margins on their hard work," said Nervick.
It is free and easy for small carriers to register. They register online at www.sleekfleet.com/get-started. Once verified and approved, a new driver can log into the exclusive mobile app and start bidding on loads.
