The Most Visited Truck Stops in the Lower 48

Carriers, Freight ResearchPublished on September 9, 2019

When you drive a heavy truck, highways are your second home and many truckers have strong preferences for where they stop their rigs.

Inspired by American Trucking Association’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, we identified the truck stop in every state most visited by our community of tens of thousands of carriers. When carriers turn on their location services during their load, the Convoy app uses the location information to provide a hassle free experience for drivers such as automated detention and Convoy QuickPay. We used this data to identify clusters of the most popular places where carriers stop in the continental United States while hauling loads with Convoy. You just may find a new oasis for your next run!
