Freightliner Trucks Launches “The Edge” Club for Owner-Operators
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Freightliner Trucks today launched The Edge (www.freightlineredge.com) – a free online club created specifically for owner-operators.
Designed to provide an arsenal of useful tools for owner-operators, The Edge is a comprehensive website that includes traffic and weather reports, breaking Freightliner news, and exclusive members-only discounts on merchandise from partners such as Sprint and the Chrome Shop Mafia. The club also creates a virtual trucking community through its blogs and forums as well as its exclusive social network, The Convoy, where members will find and can contribute tips, advice and personal stories.
“We created The Edge to arm owner-operators with the tools they need to get ahead and be successful,” said TJ Reed, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “The Edge is also another way for Freightliner to connect directly with our customers, so we can continue to help them run smart at every turn.”
To ensure The Edge meets the needs of owner-operators, Freightliner’s Slice of Life drivers and a small group of owner-operators tested out the site from the road and provided constructive feedback and suggestions.
“The Edge is yet another resource in your toolbox to better your business,” said Henry Albert, one of Freightliner’s Slice of Life drivers.
Added Gina Angsten, another Slice of Life participant who has signed up for The Edge: “Are you looking for one place to find everything Freightliner? Do you want information on news, weather, traffic, new products, and more? Everything and anything you want to find or talk about, The Edge is just the place.”
Fleet owners, fleet drivers and Freightliner enthusiasts are also welcome to join The Edge. Fleet owners will enjoy most of the owner-operator perks, while fleet drivers and Freightliner enthusiasts will have access to specific sections of the club, such as merchandise discounts, and their own blogs and forums.
