About Chris

This app based solution is a disruptive service for breakdowns in the commercial trucking industry. There are 3.9 million employed truck drivers and 510,000 trucking companies in the US. As these individuals and companies operate over the road breakdowns to the truck or trailer occur daily in in the high hundreds to 1,000. Typically breakdowns are coordinated via a phone call and involve the driver verbally describing their location and the nature of their problem. This is an inaccurate and time consuing endeavor. Most companies either coordinate this activity either through a fee based breakdown service or internally.

My idea look to eliminate the calling portion of the equation by allowing drivers to classify their problem from their phone while also geo-locating their position.

I am in the industry and understand this issue very well. This would be the first time I am doing this and looking for someone I can trust and learn from.
