App helps drivers file paperwork while social distancing

An app, BasicBlock, is allowing truckers to stay safe, practice social distancing as recommended by the CDC,  and file their paperwork over the phone.

Social distancing is a term that describes measures taken to prevent the spread of contagious disease, like COVID-19, by maintaining physical distance between people and reducing the number of times people come into close contact with each other.

"Oftentimes they're having to go into truck stops to use fax machines or having to interact with back offices and handle physical documents," said Taylor Monks the founder and CEO of BasicBlock. "For us, we provide this tool that they can use from the safety of their cab. To put a barrier between them and the high traffic areas of a truck stop."

Monks says while demand for the app is high his company is currently offering the service for free.
