BulkLoads.com today announced the company has purchased the popular weigh station app CoopsOpen.

The acquisition will allow current BulkLoad.com members to take advantage of the CoopsOpen.com services.

CoopsOpen is a weigh station status service that delivers real-time information about whether weigh stations, a.k.a Coops, are open or closed. The app is supported by the users being prompted to tell if a weigh station was open or closed after they pass it. This information is then immediately available for all other users to use as they see fit. Overweight fines and log book violations are costly, and knowing a weigh station is open before you approach it can help make sure you avoid them.

“CoopsOpen.com is the first and only weigh station status service in the world that alerts carriers if weigh stations are open or closed before they reach them. The service is offered as a smart phone app and a website. It’s simple, easy to use, free, and helps carriers avoid costly fines. Users can also alert other carriers and be alerted with a weigh station opens or closes,” BulkLoad

“The majority of bulk truck freight is paid by the weights transported,” said Jared Flinn, Operating Partner at BulkLoads.com. “CoopsOpen.com will allow trucking companies to stay informed on where weight stations are located and whether they open or closed.”

To use the app, simply visit the iTunes or Google Play store and download the app, create an account and you’re ready to go.

“We feel CoopsOpen.com complements our other online services such as BulkLoads by utilizing technology to help our members with their day-to-day business. We are always seeking new, innovative solutions for our members and we believe this is a perfect fit,” Said Matt Fredin, Operating Partner on BulkLoads.com.
