Trucking Website Expands With News Site

West Hills truck-driver job board Trucking Unlimited has bought the news site TruckingIndustry.news, the company announced. The Scottsdale, Ariz.-based website is an aggregator of news stories and reports relating to the commercial trucking industry and the economy. It also includes personal stories about truck drivers. Trucking Unlimited, which lists jobs offered by large and small carriers, said adding the news site to its current jobs board will provide commercial truckers one website for both services. “We want this to be a one-stop-shop,” said Jake Tully, who handles public relations for Trucking Unlimited. “In our industry, there are a lot of job seekers who are news junkies. A lot of our competitors don’t have any news sites affiliated with them.” Tully added that along with transportation news, TruckingIndustry.news runs stories about personal experiences truckers have, such as while on the road, dealing with carriers or other issues. In that way, the site can act as an advocate for truck drivers, he said. At first, Trucking Unlimited will include the new website as an RSS feed and in the spring, it will release a mobile application for Apple and Android mobile devices which will integrate the two websites. This is the second website purchase for Trucking Unlimited. In 2014, the nearly five-year-old company bought TruckDrivingJobs.com for $800,000. The company declined to provide a purchase price, but said it expects to close the deal by the end of the week. According to the companies, there are about 3.5 million commercial truck drivers in the transportation industry nationwide, and about 90 percent of drivers and transportation industry experts use mobile devices to learn news about the industry.
