Layover.com buys MyTruckingSpace.com; Web sites to be merged

| Friday, June 20, 2008

Layover.com, a Web site tailored to the trucking industry and a resource for over-the-road truck drivers, has acquired the trucker social networking Web site MyTruckingSpace.com.

The two Web sites will be merged. The new site is expected to be fully integrated, with all features available to users, within the next 60 days. The site will be called MyTruckingSpace.com.

“Being able to communicate over long distances, among people all over the country, with pictures, video, blogs, and other media is the strength of the Internet,” said Bruce Martin, president of Layover.com, in a press release.

“Of course, long-haul truckers have been doing this forever in one form or another,” Martin pointed out.
