ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) announced details today of its joint venture with StakUp Inc.
Under the terms of the partnership, TCA will use StakUp’s online benchmarking platform for the trucking industry, and will rebrand the service as inGauge. The new service is the only dedicated benchmarking service for the North American trucking industry. It lets carriers and employees to anonymously compare its operational results on up to 30 metrics versus a chosen peer group. This exclusive service will utilize over a decade’s worth of data from TCA’s Best Practices Groups, as well as data garnered from StakUp’s existing and growing subscriber base.
“My own company has utilized TCA’s Benchmarking Program in the past, and now that I see the flexible and intuitive platform that StakUp has built, it’s clear to me that the merger of the two is going to take the trucking industry by storm,” said Keith Tuttle, TCA’s chairman and the founder of Motor Carrier Service, LLC, of Northwood, Ohio. “There’s a tremendous value in knowing how you compare against other companies of similar size and resources. This will improve profits and efficiency, while reducing risk.”
Chris Henry, president and co-founder of StakUp, said: “We are honoured to be chosen by TCA; it signifies a major milestone in the timeline of our company. Combining a significant membership base with a decade’s worth of audited data from some of the best motor carriers in North America signifies a truly best case scenario for our mission. Each of these items will support our goal of strengthening the value and lowering the risk profile of North American motor carriers.”
The inGauge service will be officially rolled out on September 1 to all motor carriers in North America. TCA’s Best Practice group members will be provided complementary access to the service for a limited time, and ongoing discounts will be provided to all TCA members.
