LoadExpress has implemented the latest government closed-area data for Houston into its mobile app so truckers can be rerouted to minimize disruptions and enable them to deliver critical shipments in the relief effort. The data will be updated daily. Example below:

LoadExpress Mobile App for carriers is free. Its Truck Map module is also free in an add-on download, which provides critical roadside information truckers need, including: speed limit, bridge weight/height, curve ahead warnings and points of interest such as diesel stations and truck stops. Once a carrier is delivering a load on LoadExpress, truck navigation/routing with turn-by-turn will be automatically turned on. These features are similar to those on leading truck navigation devices such as those from Rand McNally, the market leader in those devices. They retail between $300-600. It is a totally free download on LoadExpress, and only available on the LoadExpress mobile app.
