This trucker app is described as a "roving Craigslist" that enables truck drivers to buy, sell and swap things at truck stops. The RoadSwap app essentially brings the sharing economy to this specific subset of people that would usually be unable to participate due to their on-the-move nature. Typically the sharing economy requires neighbors to be in close proximity to each other.

The trucker app also applies to people who are constantly travelling or would frequent truck stops. Users can list items they want to sell or trade on their profiles. GPS capabilities connect them to other users nearby who would be interested in buying or trading. You can also search for particular items within a 100 mile radius on the android app.
