Blue Bloodhound, an online marketplace connecting qualified truck drivers with motor carriers, has successfully enrolled more than 20,000 independent CDL truck drivers and owner-operators looking for additional work in the U.S.
Through Blue Bloodhound, motor carriers have access to qualified, road-ready drivers operating as 1099 independent contractors. With access to complete driver files, carriers can quickly lock in open runs when and where needed.
"Traditional recruiting methods often take weeks or months to translate into full time drivers and at very high costs," said Chris Davy, executive vice president, Blue Bloodhound Sales. "Our new marketplace gives motor carriers immediate access to thousands of qualified drivers across the country who are actively looking for extra work.”
The system also benefits truck drivers by giving them an opportunity to fill downtime with clearly defined jobs directly from a smartphone. With the app, drivers can achieve consistent weekly pay and do so on their terms.
“Whether local or over-the-road, motor carriers with an urgent driver need can simply post a run on Blue Bloodhound's website and hire a qualified CDL truck driver the same day,” said Davy.
