Multi-Language 24/7 Customer Support: Its Necessity and Benefits.

Long-haul trucking fuels the American economy, and rightfully so! As highlighted by the American Trucking Association, trucks transport around 72.6% of the United States’ freight by weight. Drivers drive millions of miles annually, so it is no surprise that any unanticipated issues can arise.

Additionally, the industry is becoming more diverse. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of foreign-born truck drivers has doubled from 315,981 in 2000 to 720,000 in 2021.
Imagine your truck driver is stuck on the highway and does not understand English. How will he communicate? 

Recent findings of the study conducted by Zippia on their extensive nationwide database revealed that around 75% of truck drivers preferred Spanish as a foreign language. This implies that most drivers like to communicate in a language other than English.

So, what’s the remedy? Two words: Multilingual support!

Multi-lingual

TruckX’s innovative 24/7 multilingual customer support (on-call and live chat) allows drivers and fleet managers to seek assistance in their preferred language without getting stuck in any automatic response loop. Read on to learn more about how it solves the challenges drivers face on the road and its key advantages.

Challenges Drivers Face on the Road

Truck drivers navigate a complex and demanding environment. These are some of the common challenges they encounter:

    • Technical issues: Software malfunctions delay the data transfer, hinder your driving status, and cause log violations, which can result in high fines. TruckX’s 24/7 multi-language customer support helps you resolve all these issues.
    • Regulations and Permits: Staying compliant with ever-changing rules across different jurisdictions can be a hassle. TruckX’s ELD assists you with all the necessities.
    • Language barriers: Non-native English-speaking drivers may struggle to communicate effectively. TruckX’s 24/7 (live chat and on-call) multi-language support ensures help with anything drivers need on the go without any automatic response loop or long wait times.

What is Multi-Language Support?

Simply, multilingual or multi-language support refers to assistance provided to drivers in languages other than English. It is a strategic business move focused on catering to the country’s changing demographics of truck drivers and the global nature of our perpetually growing industry.

Importance of Multilingual Support

With the industry growing and becoming increasingly diverse, you must cater to the diverse needs of your drivers, especially language, as it can cause significant barriers for drivers, mainly those who can’t speak English. It impacts your drivers’ ability to report software glitches or any unanticipated issues that cause logging violations. 


Remember, these violations motivate authorities to fine you and your fleet. In some cases, these fines have caused business downfalls. You don’t want that, right?
TruckX’s 24/7 multi-language support ensures your drivers are safe, informed, and unstuck. Our 24/7 tele-support (on call) helps drivers navigate ELD and compliance without wait times or auto-response loops.

TruckX provides assistance in five different languages:

    • English  
    • Spanish  
    • Hindi

    • Russian

This customer-first approach allows TruckX consumers to steer through the roads and increase efficiency safely.
