FRAMINGHAM – Trux ™, a heavy-duty logistics platform that connects trucking companies, contractors, brokers and materials producers to the nation’s largest dump truck market, this week announced a collaboration with REIN , based in Boston.
REIN offers a revolutionary integrated insurance platform with access to digital services and programs from the world’s best insurers. This collaboration was designed to provide a streamlined enrollment and insurance renewal program for dump truck operators.
The Trux Marketplace currently serves more than 28,000 insured dump truck drivers. Insurance is an essential part of any carrier’s operations, but it can be complicated, expensive and confusing. Trux and REIN saw an opportunity to make the process of initial account creation and insurance renewal even easier, providing independent owners and fleets with access to leading insurance.
“At REIN, our goal is to make comprehensive and relevant coverage options more easily accessible to customers where and when they need them,” said Steve Rabbitt, CEO and Co-Founder of REIN, “Trux’s unique platform helps give carriers easy access to jobs. We are delighted to create the first integrated insurance program that matches Trux’s unwavering commitment to providing unparalleled service to the transportation industry.
Outside of the Trux Marketplace, carriers looking for employment with a local construction company or material producer are faced with a lot of paperwork and a process that can take weeks. The increased efficiency provided by Trux and REIN allows carriers to do extra work in minutes and avoid downtime when renewing insurance.
This collaboration will protect Trux users from coverage disruptions with regular notifications before and during the renewal process, and users will also be able to take advantage of the premium operator discount programs offered through REIN. By removing the friction of renewing insurance, truck drivers and fleet owners can dramatically reduce project delays and interruptions and reduce risk.
“This collaboration with REIN will bring incredible value to Trux users by simplifying a complicated and outdated process. This one-of-a-kind integrated assurance program connects the back-office to the operations team by removing manual processes and creating greater visibility in a high-risk area of their business, ”said Bart Ronan, CEO of Trux. “At its core, Trux is dedicated to modernizing trucking operations and increasing technology adoption in our industry. The additional service of REIN is part of our mission.
Trux, based in Framingham, is a dump truck logistics platform designed for material producers, fleet owners and contractors. The cloud-based software connects contractors and materials producers to the nation’s largest network of technology carriers. Trux users realize significant gains in the profitability of their logistics services through more efficient operations, better customer experience and better visibility into operations.
