Lehigh Valley, PA, March 01, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- As contractors in the construction industry know, it can be an aggravating and time-consuming experience to find dump trucks to haul their material when they need it. Likewise, dump truck owners are constantly looking for loads to haul, since every day that a truck is parked means lost revenue. A new construction industry start-up from Pennsylvania seeks to bring these two groups together for their mutual benefit and to eliminate a decades-old problem in the process. DumpTruckLoads.com is an online service, accessible from both desktop and mobile browsers, that enables members to find trucks or loads with the push of a button.
Posting their loads on the DumpTruckLoads.com load board gives contractors the ability to broadcast their loads to dozens or even hundreds of preselected dump truck owners in seconds. Dump truck owners receive real-time notifications of the loads via e-mail and text message, allowing them to work with contractors outside of their network and to contact the contractor as quickly as possible, securing work for their trucks. Dump truck owners are also able to search for loads outside of their local area, giving them the first easy way to find backhauls for their trucks, thus increasing their revenue.
DumpTruckLoads.com is the creation of Steven Kolbe, an entrepreneur with almost 50 years of experience in the construction industry. Because his businesses have ranged from highway construction and paving to quarry reclamation, he knows the full scope of the industry's inefficiencies, especially when it comes to hiring and finding work for dump trucks.
"Two factors brought me to create DumpTruckLoads.com," Kolbe says. "As a paving foreman during my summers in college, I recall my dispatcher telling me there was no way he could get me the number of trucks I needed. More recently, dump truck owners would call me to see if we were working and needed any trucks. If only there had been a way to bring these two problems together into one simple solution. Now there is."
The service is free to join and use. It was designed to be easy to access from the office or the jobsite. DumpTruckLoads.com and its parent company, MyLogic, Inc., are headquartered in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley and the service is available nationwide. To sign up, simply go to DumpTruckLoads.com.
