Truck Driving Jobs App for Drivers

Use the GoShare app to get truck driving job alerts in your area. GoShare works with truck drivers in most major cities in the United States to match them with local loads and delivery projects. 

Truck drivers that work with GoShare enjoy flexible schedules and total control over which projects they accept.

How it Works

Sign up for GoShare to get push notifications and alerts on your smartphone when a truck driving job is available in your area. GoShare works with professional truck drivers, independent contractors and fleets.

Open the job alert to review the load details, including earnings, pickup location, item details, and drop off location. 

Truck drivers only accept loads that make sense with their schedule. There is no minimum work requirement to join and stay on GoShare. 

Once you accept, the project will be saved to your account. GoShare handles the billing and direct deposits earnings into your account. The average time for deposits is 4 days after the completion of the delivery.

How to Join

Truck drivers using GoShare’s platform to find truck driving jobs must complete a brief orientation and onboarding that includes a background and driving record check, vehicle inspection, and verification of your vehicle and insurance documents.

This process takes 1-2 weeks on average, but can be as little as 3-4 days if the applicant provides all the necessary documentation and information quickly.

The initial application only takes a few minutes. If you pass the basic requirements, you will have access to GoShare’s information orientation video and onboarding portal.
