Keeping your trucks full and moving is the key to success in the freight hauling industry. Convoy is continually working to make it easier for you to earn more. Here are just a few of the reasons you’ll want to add Convoy to your toolkit so you can maximize earnings. 

Plan Ahead, Book Easily & Get Paid Quickly

Find and book loads on your terms. The free Convoy app enables you to see all of the available loads in the Convoy network, including the pickup and dropoff locations, 24×7, with no need to wait or phone calls required.

Get paid faster, with no fees. Use the Convoy app from pickup to drop off and upload a photo of the signed Bill of Lading to get paid within 2 business days with Convoy QuickPay™. No fees, no factoring, no additional paperwork.

Increase Your Productivity

Bid on loads you want and keep your trucks full on the lanes you like to run. See a load you like but need a different rate? Convoy was the first in the industry to let you enter your bid directly in the app. Tell us when your truck will be empty and what lanes you like to run. When a load matches your preferences we instantly notify you for quick and easy bidding in the Convoy app.

Reduce wait times and haul more with power only loads through Convoy Go, which allows any carrier or owner-operator to haul pre-loaded trailers. Power only loads have wider appointment windows than live shipments and there are no trailer rental fees if returned on time. With the time remaining before the empty trailer is due to be returned, use the trailer for other loads, including those not booked through Convoy. Power only loads are available across the country, with concentrations in the Midwest, Northeast, South, Southeast and West.

Minimize empty miles and increase take-home earnings. Select from pre-planned combinations with Automated Reloads, or build-your-own with Suggested Reloads. Our industry-leading algorithms match you with itineraries that work together to minimize empty miles, maximize your hours of service, and get you to where you want to be. You can book reloads all at one time or add as you’re considering an offer.

Fully utilize your available hours of service. Setting up Flex Loads enables you to choose the perfect pickup and delivery date to spend more time hauling. See date ranges and choose the appointment time that is best suited to your schedule.
