SAN DIEGO (August 7, 2014) – Data Driven Shipping announces the launch of datadrivenshipping.com, a website dedicated to making downloading trucking data easier. Based on publicly available information, the website provides contact information for over a million trucking companies, as well as information on brokers and shippers.

The site allows users to download and use the data without mapping the file. The backend proprietary programming handles all the mapping behind the scenes and creates custom files that easily import into the most popular contact management programs: Salesforce, Google, Outlook, and Apple contacts. Importing the contact files into a contact management system on a computer, tablet or mobile device becomes simple and easy, allowing users to start using data faster.

This information is useful for any individual or company who ships
or receives goods. It can also be a valuable resource for job-seekers seeking employment in the trucking industry. At the price point of $20 a month for unlimited data contact downloads, Data Driven Shipping’s service is affordable for the masses.

Douglas Hayden founded Data Driven Shipping to solve a problem he found difficult. “I wanted to drive sales for my company by downloading trucking information, but couldn’t believe how difficult this turned out to be,” said Mr. Hayden, “I was surprised at how expensive trucking industry contact information was at most database companies. After I purchased the data, I was forced to map the contact fields and I wasn’t sure how to do this or if I was doing it correctly. I wanted something I could use right away.”

In building the website, Mr. Hayden looked to the top ranked university in his back yard – University of California San Diego (UCSD). The technology behind datadrivenshipping.com was developed by a UCSD Freshman Computer Science student and a former UCSD student with connections at the UCSD Super Computing Center.
