7 Amazing Ways Women Are Changing The Trucking Industry

TruckLogics supports female truckers
You know what’s pretty cool? Being a trucker. You get the freedom of the open road. As you work there are no annoying coworkers breathing down your neck, unless you drive in a team, because it’s just you in your rig.

You get to drive on some of the most beautiful roads in the nation. You also get to make fun discoveries, like when you find out some of the best Mexican food, comes from a Citco in rural North Carolina with only 6 parking spaces for trucks. But, you know what’s cooler than being a trucker? Being a lady trucker. Check out how women are changing the trucking industry.

How Women Are Changing The Trucking Industry


1. They’re Making It Safer

The secret is out, women are great drivers. Women have proven themselves as safer drivers in the trucking industry with about a 25% lower accident cost than men. Now more companies would like to save on these costs so they’re actually recruiting female drivers.

2. Customer Service Is Being Improved

Women know how to talk to people. They are better with customers and with dissolving heated situations. Ladies know how to communicate in an effective and professional manner and don’t react with anger as often as men do.

3. Recruiting Methods Are Changing

Companies want to attract female drivers so they’re changing the way they recruit people with more female-friendly techniques. Historically the trucking industry has been an intimidating, male-dominated industry. Now they are trying to make their environment warm and inviting. A number of trucking companies are even offering equal wages for women drivers.

4. Women Are Decreasing The Driver Shortage

It’s no secret that there is a huge driver shortage in the trucking industry that’s paired with a huge turnover rate. Companies have had tons of trouble hiring younger drivers. As older truckers retire the industry faces a lot of trouble. However, women are found to be reliable drivers that are filling the gap.

5. Quality Of Work Is Improving

Ladies seemed to be extremely detailed. Their paperwork has fewer errors and their neater handwriting makes it easier to read. It seems as if ladies and more dependable to meet important paperwork deadlines, and their work doesn’t seem rushed.

6. Training Time Is Decreasing
TruckLogics supports women in trucking

Companies have found that they like training ladies to take the wheel because they seem to pick up training faster than their male counterparts. That means companies can hire women and provide them with their CDL to have more safe and dependable drivers on the road in a shorter amount of time.

7. The Female Voice is Growing

The amount of women driving semis might be increasing, but ladies have been driving big rigs for years. Now many organizations like the Women in Trucking gives ladies a place to speak about their experiences. They also offer a network of support to encourage more women to join the industry and minimize the obstacles they face.

We’re Proud of Lady Truckers


TruckLogics is proud of the women taking to the road to deliver goods across the nation. For both men and women trucking is a challenging job and our economy would collapse without you. If you’re a lady trucker and proud please let us know in the comment section below.

Merry Christmas From TruckLogics

TruckLogics wishes truckers a merry Christmas

Wow, Y’all! It’s Christmas already. Happy holidays trucking nation. We hope you’re having the perfect day surrounded by your loved ones. Thank you for making this holiday season possible! You did it all,  from delivering the large Christmas tree to the capitol to delivering ingredients to traditional holiday recipes to grocery stores.

Unfortunately, this is the busiest time of year for trucking, and many drivers can’t make it home for the holidays. That’s why we’ve got a list of ways to make Christmas on the road exciting.

Christmas On The Road


Stay Positive

Don’t have a blue Christmas. Think positively about the money this load will give you and how excited your family will be when you get home. You can use this time to plan a Christmas celebration in advance for when you arrive and this will give you extra time to plan the perfect gifts.

Connect

You don’t have to spend the whole day alone! Call all of your friends and family to give them holiday wishes. You can even use video chat to watch your family open gifts. Nothing will cheer you up to see how happy they are with what Santa brought.

Also, once you park you can watch your favorite holiday movie in your rig. Plus, you aren’t alone. Find a fellow trucker who is also working to strike up a conversation with.

TruckLogics can't thank truck drivers enough
Get The Good Stuff

It’s Christmas! That means it’s time to eat a large meal guilt free. Take a temporary break from counting to order yourself a nice meal. It can be from a sit-down place or a fast food place, get whatever you want! You can also have your favorite holiday treats in your cab.

Bring Someone Along

Your spouse or children both have time off work and school, so why not invite a road trip buddy along? You guys can watch for Santa visiting houses and see amazing Christmas decorations all across the country. If your family is too busy to come along, you can also bring your pup to keep you company on Christmas day.

Happy Holidays From TruckLogics


Again, trucking nation, we thank you for all of your hard work from TruckLogics. We hope you will have the time to celebrate your favorite holiday traditions with those you love. If you can’t make it home today, we know your family will be extremely excited to see you once you get home.

The Best Gifts The Trucker In Your Life

TruckLogics knows truckers make Christmas possible
The trucker in your life is out there on the road right now delivering gifts across the nation, just to make Christmas possible for the rest of us. While they’re busy on the road the holidays are getting closer and closer and you’re running out of time to get them the perfect gift.

However, if you're like us at TruckLogics, shopping might not be your thing and it can be hard to find the perfect gift. That’s why we're here to help out by providing you with a list of gifts that truckers will love! Check it out!

Best Trucker Gifts


Seat Covers

Truckers spend a lot of time on the road, so one nice thing you can do is make their time in their rig a little nicer. You can get them a seat cushion or a seat cover to make their ride a little more comfortable. Some seat covers are even heated and include massagers.

Electric Blankets

If they’re an OTR driver, winter is here and they might get cold at night. Warm things up by getting them an electric blanket or space heater. You don’t even have to get a full-size electric blanket because they’re available in throw sizes now.

Coffee

The driver in your life needs to be energized, but they shouldn’t have to stop every time they need more coffee. Consider them getting them a portable maker so they can make their own coffee in their rig. You could also get them a large YETI thermos to suit their needs or a mug with a funny saying on it.

T-Shirts

Truckers may embody a certain bad to the bone style with their boots and leather jackets, but they also enjoy driving in comfort. That means they enjoy wearing lots of t-shirts while on the road. Get them a cool trucking related shirt like for Jack’s Chrome Shop or with a funny saying on it like, “I just dropped a load.”

Entertainment

Trucking can be a lonely industry. Don’t let your driver become homesick, distract them with some good entertainment. Get them a Netflix or Hulu subscription so they can watch their favorite shows when they parked.

You could also get them a satellite radio subscription so they could listen to any station from any location or an audiobook subscription so they could listen to compelling stories.

Giftcards

You know what truckers like? Well, they like what they like, and sometimes that just plain old cash or gift cards towards what they really want. Wal-Mart gift cards, Lowes gift cards, gift cards for restaurants, and more could go a long way.
Get truckers what they need for Christmas


A Good Flashlight

Sometimes your driver is getting up in the middle of the night or early morning to drive and a good flashlight could make their pre-trip inspection go a lot easier. You could also get them a headlamp to wear so they can have the light they need, hands-free.

Up Their Bag Game

Truckers take a lot of items on the road with them for personal and professional use. A good bookbag or go bag for them to organize their stuff will help them out a lot. Also, a nice leather toiletry bag to keep all of their personal hygiene items together will make things a lot easier.

Christmas Is On Its Way!


You have less than a week to find the perfect gift for the trucker in your life. That gives you plenty of time to hit the stores to find the perfect gift. Just spend a little time thinking about what they like, want, and need. Also, when in doubt, you can always just ask them what they hope Santa brings!

TruckLogics thanks truck drivers for all that they do

The ELD Compliance Deadline Is Here

TruckLogics reminds truckers about the ELD compliance deadline Ready or not, the ELD compliance deadline is here. That means all of your trucks need to have FMCSA approved ELD or AOBRD devices installed. We hope you already have your hardware, as there are major ELD shortages across the nation.

Many truckers have been protesting the ELD mandate with the ‘ELD or ME’ slogan and said they would quit if the mandate took place. However, all we can do is wait and see if how this mandate will shape the trucking industry. But how will it affect you?

The ELD Compliance Deadline Is Here

You can still operate your truck today even if you don’t have an ELD device because the Commercial Safety Vehicle Alliance (CVSA) has giving truckers a little extra time to comply with their out-of-service-safety-criteria (OOSC).

http://maps.dat.com/hotdata
Under their criteria, vehicles will not be placed out of service for failing to comply with the ELD mandate until April 1, 2018. However, roadside personal and inspectors will be checking for ELD devices beginning today, December 18th, and have the right to issue expensive citations. Just like when a cop pulls you over, you never know if you will get a warning or a hefty ticket.

First day of the #ELDmandate, and there's more red on DAT van-map than on a cell phone coverage map. Can you hear me now?! 

Now if you had a grandfathered AOBRD device installed before today, December 18, you can continue using it until December 16, 2019, as long as it meets the requirements of 49 CFR, 15. You have until that day to comply with the ELD mandate. If you still need equipment, check out the ELD/AOBRD device Amil Freight has to offer and watch their informative demos on how to use it.

TruckLogics explains how the ELD mandate could save money
Even though many truckers were against this mandate, the deadline day is here, so we might as well look at the silver lining. ELDs can save trucking businesses tons of time and money by reducing paperwork.

Many drivers are excited that the ELD devices will cut down on the amount of paperwork they will have to do because ELDs eliminate logbooks. Drivers no longer have to write down their odometer readings when they cross state lines or manually fill out trip sheets because it will all be automatically recorded.

Then fleet managers will save hours by not having to process these log books. An assistant to take care of all of this paperwork may no longer be needed. Plus, instead of storing all these logbooks in a warehouse they will be stored in one convenient location online for you to reference.

Plus, you can save fuel and improve communication by always knowing your driver’s location. You can find shorter and faster routes for them and instantly make check calls at any time. Also, dispatchers will have the ability to make more accurate ETAs without having to distract the driver.

Are You Ready For The ELD Mandate?

We hope you have your ELD device ready to go, but if you don’t you still have some time before you will be placed out of service. As this ELD compliance date will go down in history in the trucking industry, please share your thoughts in the comment section below and visit TruckLogics for more trucking blogs.

Cut These 4 Major Trucking Expenses To Save Money

TruckLogics makes tracking trucking finances easy
Trucking is one place where you can’t fake it til you make it. You either have to know what you’re doing through tons of experience or hop out of the cab. This is true for both driving and running your own trucking company.

Sometimes new owner-operators think they can have instant overnight success, without considering to costs that go into managing a trucking business. Be sure to learn where to cut costs in order to help your operation stay afloat.

Four Major Trucking Business Expenses


1. Fuel

Fuel is your most expensive cost in the industry. It’s sort of ironic because you can’t operate without it. However, you can learn how to save! The first step to saving on fuel is to slow down! Go about 10 mph slower than usual, accelerate slowly, and gradually slow down. Aggressively accelerating and slamming on the breaks can really burn fuel.

Also, avoid out of route miles! Use a program like ProMiles to find the quickest routes for trucks. ProMiles will also show you the cheapest fuel rates around your location so you can figure out the best place to fill up.

Another great tip is to reduce idling time and avoid traffic. Take the backroads during rush hours or drive early in the morning or at night to prevent having to deal with congestion.

2. Maintenance Costs

You need to love your trucks and take great care of them. That means don’t skimp out on basic scheduled maintenance. Get your oil changed, replace your belts, check your AC lines, rotate your tires, and much more.

Doing this upfront will keep your trucks in working condition for a longer amount of time so you won’t have to replace them. Plus, this will reduce your risk of breaking down on the side of the road, which comes with a lot of expensive bills. You have to get towed, you have to get into a shop nearby, you’re delivery will be delayed, and more.

You’ll save much more in the long run by taking care of vehicle maintenance on a regular schedule.

3. Food and Lodging

Other huge expenses for truckers are the costs of food and lodging. Cut out the major expense of lodging by opting to sleep in your rig instead of in motels. Also, consider packing food and beverages for your trips.

Go to the store and buy your own groceries and snacks before hitting the road. Buying your favorite items in bulk can actually provide major savings. Plus, by making your own healthier options in your rig you’ll cut calories and won’t have to buy expensive fast food meals every time you get hungry.

TruckLogics is the market leading trucking management program
4. The Wrong Trucking Software

In order to manage your business, track your expenses, and more, you will need a trucking software. There are tons of programs to choose from, which can be problematic. Not every program includes everything you need, so some owner-operators use multiple programs and their subscription fees add up!

Also, some programs are extremely overpriced for no good reason. Shop around to find your best option. Make sure the program has good dispatching software, expense tracking, account reporting, driver communication, an app, and more.

5 Reasons To Switch To New Trucking Software

Find every trucking management tool you need with TruckLogics
Running a trucking business is no slice of pie. As much as we wish it was easy to start your company and become established with a good reputation to start raking in the dough, it actually takes time and hard work.

This hard work involves keeping up to date on bills, expenses, dispatches, drivers, maintenances, taxes, and more. However, you can make your life a little easier when it comes to managing everything for your business with the help of trucking software. Eventhough using the wrong program can make things extremely difficult.

Check out what a good trucking software should have, so you’ll know if it’s time to switch to a new one.

5 Reasons To Switch To New Trucking Software


1. Importing Your Information Should Be Easy

The ideal trucking program should allow you to easily import your existing information so you don’t have to manually enter it all in. Programs will be able to do this if they have Quickbooks integration. Also, the sync should have easy instructions so you can quickly import your contacts and expenses.

2. Dispatching Should Be Simple

You’re busy and don’t have time to waste with pointless, complicated steps. That’s why creating a dispatch should be easy to complete with a few basic instructions. Plus, the dispatches should be detailed with the ability to add shipper and consignee details, as well as pickup and dropoff instructions for the driver.

You should also be able to assign a driver and equipment to each dispatch to keep detailed records for your business. Then you and you’re drivers should be able to instantly make check calls and capture and send BOL and proof of delivery.

The program should also do some of the hard work for you when it comes to dispatching, by finding the best routes for trucks and by calculating all of your hauling fees for you.

3. The Program Should Have An App

Trucking is a mobile industry. That means you shouldn’t lose the ability to run your business while you’re out on the road. Find a program with a trucking app that allows you to check in from any location at any time.

The app should help you track your expenses, generate and send reports, log driver hours, manage dispatches and maintenance schedules, and much more!

TruckLogics simplifies IFTA reporting online
4. Financial Tracking Should Be Included

The best way to see how your business is doing is by seeing where the money is coming in and going out. The only way to do that is by tracking your income, bills, and expenses. This way you can see where you’re making money and where you’re losing it.

You should also have the ability to use your expense information to generate a number of easy to read reports. For example, a profit and loss report would display your financial status, the driver settlement would show how much and when you’ve paid your drivers, and the year-end tax report would help you complete your returns.

5. It Should Make IFTA Easier

IFTA can be a real pain since you have to submit your return four times a year! Plus, completing your return can take hours. A good trucking software will simplify this process by allowing you to track your data, like your fuel receipts, online.

It should also track your miles traveled per jurisdiction based on your trip entries. Ideally, all of this information will be saved in a quarterly IFTA report that can be printed, emailed, and used to complete your return.

Try TruckLogics


TruckLogics is an all-inclusive trucking business management program that has all of the great features mentioned above. Everything you need to run your operation will be in one convenient location online. Plus, you can even manage your business from the comfort of your own cab with the TruckLogics app. Start your free 15-day trial today!

Can The TESLA Semi Save You Money?

What does TruckLogics say about the TESLA semi? It's electric!
Trucking is expensive. The bills for trucking companies include fuel, lodging expenses, office rent, software, hardware, insurance for vehicles and people, and much more. That’s why new ways to help trucking businesses save money come out every day.

Whether it's on how to save fuel to increase your rate per mile or how to cut costs in the office, saving every penny helps. Now with the release of the fully electric Telsa Semi, the industry is considering switching to fully battery-powered vehicles to save.

Will The Tesla Semi Save Your Trucking Business Money?


Now we know that when the word Tesla is used dollar signs appear because their luxury cars are quite pricey, however, their new class 8 tractor that's fully electric is not designed to be that way. It’s actually designed to be cost-effective and is projected to run 20% cheaper per mile than diesel trucks.

The base price for the Tesla Semi ranges from $150,000 to $180,000. That’s a bit more expensive than the average price of a new semi, which is between $80,000 to over $150,000. But the Tesla savings could make up for it in the long run.

For example, you don’t need to purchase fuel. Instead, you will simply charge the Tesla, which is supposed to be a fast and easy process. One 30 minute charge is supposed to give you 400 miles and it has a 500-mile range at a full charge. You can charge it while parked at a truck stop or while parked at a loading dock.

500 miles may seem short, but the Telsa Semi is designed for local trucking and the average distance for a day trip is 250 miles. Therefore, one charge should give you more than enough power to get where you need to and back.
 
TruckLogics explains how the Tesla Semi can save you money
Plus, the Telsa is designed like a bullet with an extremely aerodynamic design to save power. It’s powered by a battery that’s under the floor and propelled by four electric motors. It also has regenerative braking to recharge the battery a little every time you come to a stop.

The Tesla Semi is also incredibly smart and safe. You sit in the center of the cab, giving you more visibility. The autopilot features can provide automatic braking in the event of an emergency and also contact emergency personnel.

By having an independent motor over each wheel, the torch can automatically be adjusted to prevent jackknifing. Savings could be found in keeping the driver and vehicle safe. Also, there's no transmission to work on, engine, or brake pads that need changing, so the maintenance costs are lower. It’s even guaranteed for a million miles.

This truck also gets stuff done. Don’t let the word electric make you think the Tesla Semi can’t keep up because with a weight of 80,000 pounds it can accelerate to 60 mph in in about 20 seconds. It can also maintain a speed of 65 mph while climbing a 5% grade when diesel trucks can only maintain 45 mph. That means in mountainous terrain you will be earning 50% more per mile than in a diesel truck.

What Do You Think About The Tesla Semi?


It appears as if the Tesla Semi has a bit more of an upfront cost, but will provide major savings in the long run. However, they won’t be going into production until 2019. You can order one now to receive it in two years.

Do you think you will be switching to the fully automatic truck in 2019 or can nothing replace the muscle and smell of diesel in the morning that comes with the trucks we know and love today?

4 Things You Need to Know About the ELD Mandate

TruckLogics shares ELD positives
The ELD mandate compliance deadline is December 18, and that will be here before you know it. There are 4 things you need to know about the EDL mandate no matter how you feel about it. The pending deadline gives you roughly two weeks to prepare your fleet. Although there is a minor chance that the mandate may get delayed, you should still be ready.

As the deadline ticks closer more and more protests are arising as the Anti-ELD Media Blitz gains steam online. However, with all the focus on ELD negatives, have you had the time to take a look at the potential benefits?

4 Things You Need to Know About the ELD Mandate

1. ELDs Reduce Paperwork

As your ELD device tracks and records your vehicle’s movement it reduces the amount of paperwork you have to handle. Instead of spending time doing your own paper log and sending it to your carrier, it will already be taken care of for you. They even record state line crossings for you.

Also, as a fleet owner if you handle your driver's paperwork you will be able to save tons of time. Because instead of manually processing this paperwork by hand it’s automatically processed and stored online for HOS compliance. This will free up a lot of hours and clerical work so you can focus on other aspects of your business.

2. ELDs Document Driver Safety

Unfortunately, in the event of a wreck, it can be easy for people to instantly blame the truck driver. However, with ELDs recording during critical events, like during a wreck, they actually can capture the driver’s driving behavior before, during, and after the event.

This will make it easier to declare fault in accidents by providing a way to reconstruct them. Also, this will help drivers and carriers reduce liability by giving them the ability to defend themselves in lawsuits.

3. ELDs Reduce Coercion

Sometimes a dispatcher or fleet manager will push a driver to keep on driving passed the HOS limit. This can create trouble for tired and exhausted drivers who simply need a break. While paper logs can easily be edited ELDs keep everything on record.

TruckLogics wants your thoughts on the ELD mandate
If a driving log is edited the edit will be saved in the history and will include who made the edit. Plus, if a log is edited by a manager then the driver will have to verify the change. They have the power to accept or reject the edit. Ultimately, this gives drivers a voice and any coercion into driving extra hours will be recorded and reflected in the manager’s records.

4. ELDs Improve Routing and Communication

ELDs provide live tracking and live updates on a driver’s location, making check calls much easier. Plus, dispatchers will be able to provide more accurate ETAs without having to contact and distract the driver. The GPS tracking will also help fleet managers view and plan the fastest routes to save fuel and time.

If the driver breaks down dispatchers will be able to see where they are to help them find a nearby shop and to direct a tow truck or emergency personnel to their location.

What’s Your Stance?


Are you going to join the truckers protesting ELDs with their peaceful rallies and numerous anti-ELD posts on social media? Or do you see the potential benefits with ELDs? Either way, make your trucks and drivers are prepared to comply with the mandate.

Please share your thoughts about ELDs in the comment section below and visit TruckLogics.com for more trucking blogs.

Tire Maintenance Tips Every Pro Needs to Know

tips for extending the life of your tires
TruckLogics shares tips for extending the life of your tires 
Rollin’ rollin’ rollin’, keep them tires rolling! As truckers, we know y’all want to keep moving. You have miles and miles to cover to deliver your loads on time. Here are the tire maintenance tips every pro needs to know because with poor tire maintenance, you could find yourself stuck on the side of the road.

Tires are expensive, so being able to take care of them to extend their life can save you in the long run. Also, be sure to keep an eye on them and know the warning signs so you can replace them before they fail on the road. Check out how to be a tire pro with these tire maintenance tips.

Tire Maintenance Tips Every Pro Needs to Know

You need to make sure that your tires are properly inflated. Punctures or slow leaks that go unnoticed can cause a tire to fail on the road. Plus, under or over-inflated tires can affect how a tire performs and wears.

You should regularly check your tire pressure and go beyond using a wooden club to thumb each tire. Be sure to use a calibrated tire gauge at least once a week. You can find a master gauge and use it’s reading to make sure your calibrated gauge is adjusted correctly.

If you think this process will be a time-consuming pain in the rear, just think about the savings you’ll have long-term. By spending 20 to 30 minutes checking on your tires you’ll be able to detect issues and prevent them instead of wasting time and money trying to fix your tire issues later.

Generally, it’s best to have steer tires on a 12,000-pound front axle at 110 psi. Set drive and trailer tire pressure are often kept at 95 psi, which is above the legal load psi of 75.

The issue with overinflation is that it causes irregular wear at the center of the tire and can cause your tires to be more susceptible to blowouts. It can also cause your tires to become more easily punctured when you do little things like bump a curb.

Underinflation causes tires to quickly wear on the shoulders. It also weakens the sidewalls and puts more pressure on the carcass. This is dangerous as it can lead to structural damage, ruptures, torn tread, and more.


However, if you find yourself in hazardous winter road conditions it can be good decision to temporarily lower your air pressure. Doing so will increase the amount of traction you have by making your tire footprint larger. Just be sure to reinflate your tires as soon as you’re out of the emergency conditions.

TruckLogics shares the importance of tire rotation
Regular tire maintenance extends the life of your tires!
Don’t neglect your tire rotation. Tires wear in different spots depending on their vehicle position. Rear tires wear on the fronts while steer tires wear on the shoulders. Rotate your tires to help them wear evenly and last longer.

Also, even tires provide a smoother ride and prevent suspension damage. Along with tire rotation, you will want to check the alignment often and make sure your tires are best aligned with your operation. If your tires aren’t aligned and your truck pulls to the side your tires will wear faster.

When you’re washing your truck go ahead and clean your tires too. They pick up a lot of chemicals and debris that cause them to wear faster. Plus, your rig will look nicer without mud-caked tires.

Keep On Rollin’


By taking a little time to take care of your tires you will extend their life and get more bang for your buck. Don’t let tire neglect have you stuck on the side of the road or an emergency situation.

Winterize Your Fleet Before It's Too Late

TruckLogics shares fleet winterization tips
Brace your trucks and drivers, winter is coming. In fact, it’s already almost here. Some places have already seen a significant amount of snow this year and more is coming. The farmer’s almanac is predicting extra cold and snowy conditions.

Before your drivers and loads get stranded or find themselves in an emergency situation make sure they are educated and prepared for winter. You will save more money and be thankful that you did in the long run.

Winterizing Your Fleet


Make sure that each of your rigs is outfitted with the proper emergency tools that your driver may need. It’s always good to have water and imperishable food available in case a driver gets stuck.

Also, advise your drivers to pack extra clothes that will stand up to harsh winter conditions. This includes hats, gloves, an extra jacket, and extra blankets. A good pair of boots is another great item to have. It’s best if all of the gear is waterproof, to help you stay warm and dry.

Other emergency items that are good to have include a flashlight, extra batteries, flares, and extra phone battery, portable hand-crank radio, salt or sand, and matches.

Another good practice for your drivers is to keep their gas tanks filled at least half-way. You never want to run out during a winter storm. Also, keep in mind that water vapor can collect in the bottom of tanks and freeze during the winter when pulled into the engine's full line. Add some fuel-line antifreeze to your tank to prevent this problem.

Speaking of fluids like fuel, it’s also important to check the oil and fluid levels in each of your trucks. If you have different types of trucks refer to each of their manuals for their recommended oil viscosity in the event of freezing temperatures.

Make sure all of the fluids are topped off including the power steering, battery fluids, engine coolants, and more. The winter is also a great time to change all of your filters to prevent moisture from building up and freezing.

You will also want to go under the hood of each vehicle to check on the important things like your battery. It needs extra juice to start in the winter, so replace it if it’s old and make sure it’s free of corrosion. Along with the battery, make sure the spark plugs are clean and your belts aren’t cracking.

TruckLogics shares trucker winter safety tips
We know tires are expensive but they are also incredibly important. If your rigs have worn out tires consider replacing them with winter tires so they will have the traction they need to face winter conditions. Also, your drivers should make sure they’re properly inflated and make sure all the vehicle lights are working before they hit the road.

The defrosters in each truck should be working and your drivers should completely defrost the vehicle and remove all the ice or snow from on top of and around the vehicle at each stop. Also, make sure the window wipers can handle ice or snow or be sure to replace them.

Talk to your drivers about driving in winter conditions. Make sure they slow down, don’t brake too hard, or accelerate quickly. They will need to keep extra distance between themselves and other vehicles, remain calm, never use cruise control, and watch out for black ice.

They should never drive through a storm they don’t feel comfortable in and should pay attention to the weather. This way they will know when to reroute around a storm and when they need to park and wait it out.

Happy Winter


While the winter brings about many joyous holidays and a sense of wonder as you sip hot cocoa with your family, but it also brings huge storms and freezing temperatures! Make sure your fleet is prepared to face the season before you run out of time!

What Truckers Are Thankful For

TruckLogics hopes OTR truckers enjoy turkey
Happy Thanksgiving to all of the hard-working professionals out there in the trucking industry. We can’t believe turkey day is here already and we have turkey, pie, and even more turkey on our minds.

We know that hard-working drivers are extremely busy out there and we thank you for your work. Without y’all delivering turkeys all across the nation we wouldn’t be able to sit down and enjoy this traditional meal with our families.

This would be a good time to go into the history of Thanksgiving, but we won’t bore you with that. However, if you like the story of Squanto and his pilgrim friends coming together to feast then we’re sure there’s a movie about it on Netflix for you to watch. Instead, we have a list of what truckers are probably thankful for.

What Truckers Are Thankful For


  • When a Prius driver doesn’t feel the need to tailgate 
  • When a Prius driver actually learns how to pass on the left side. 
  • If none of the other drivers around you have ‘Swift’ on your vehicles. 
  • When the rookie driver backs up to park beside you and doesn’t hit your rig. 
  • A full night of rest, without a single person knocking on your door while parked at a truck stop. 
  • When truck stop showers have stalls instead of just one big community shower. 
  • The moment of victory when you eat tons of Taco Bell and McDonald’s and your stomach doesn’t take personal revenge on your body
  • The rare occasion when your dispatcher calls just to say hi
  • When the cop speeding up on you with its lights on drives on by to pull someone else over. 
  • When someone actually takes a moment to appreciate all of the hard work you do and actually thanks you

Happy Turkey Day


Thank you again from TruckLogics. No matter where you are this week we hope you get to head home soon to spend time with your family and go to town on a huge turkey dinner. You’ve earned it!

Please share what you’re thankful for in the comment section below.

Turkey and Traffic, What To Expect This Thanksgiving

TruckLogics mentions Thanksgiving travel for truckers
Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is already here and Christmas is right around the corner. We hope you have time to celebrate with your families even though we know this is an extremely busy time of year for truckers.

As shopping increases so does the demand for supplies, so we thank you for doing what you can to deliver loads on time. If you will be on the road this week we know what you can expect turkey and traffic wise.

Turkey Day Food And Travel


The Travel…

Thanksgiving is one of the largest travel holidays of the year. People from all over drive hours and hours just to go back home for their momma’s cooking. However, this doesn’t mean that they’re good drivers. Oftentimes people drive tired and make mistakes resulting in huge Thanksgiving traffic jams.

Along with driving tired people will also be driving distracted. They will be holding their phones and using them to GPS directions. Also, they may be yelling at their kids in the back seat to calm down. Be sure to slow down a little and keep an eye out for these distracted drivers, who may also be driving with an escalated level of road rage.

There will be an estimated amount of 50.9 million Americans traveling at least an hour to their destinations this holiday and 89.3% of those travelers will be driving. Thanksgiving is historically the busiest holiday for road trips, but this year records are expected to be set.

Usually, the busiest day of travel is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving as people get off work and head to the streets, but congestion can pick up as early as Monday afternoon. Keep in mind that the evenings are the busiest time, so travel in the morning if you can.

TruckLogics shares where OTR Truckers can get turkey
There should be less traffic on Thursday, but it will pick back up again for black Friday shopping and over the weekend as folks go home. Also, fuel prices are also expected to be at their highest rate since 2014, so if you see a cheap place to fill up go ahead and do it!

The Turkey...

Now that we have discussed the travel you can expect, what about turkey OTR? There are actually a number of great places for truckers to stop and eat a delicious turkey meal.

Some of my favorite places include Cracker Barrell, which will make you feel nice and at home and Denny’s because their special Thanksgiving meal doesn’t disappoint. Plus, a lot of Flying J’s have Denny’s!

There are also a few places where you can actually get a free turkey meal. The Boise Stage Shop in Boise, Idaho is offering a free turkey dinner with trimmings and the Cowboy Cafe in Lyman, Wyoming is also giving out free turkey dinners, complete with sides and even a slice of pie. All you have to do is show your CDL to redeem your meal.

Happy Thanksgiving Truckers


We are thankful for all that you do to deliver essential goods all across the nation. We sincerely hope so have time to celebrate with your families. Be sure to travel early to avoid traffic and take a break to enjoy a turkey lunch or dinner.

The Best Ways To Bring Trucking Music To Your Ears

TruckLogics shares modern ways for truckers to listen to music
The open road can be a lonely place. You might drive for hours without seeing or talking to another person. Some drivers can’t get enough of the solitude, while it can take a serious toll on others.

However, the road doesn’t have to be lonely place, because you have your radio in your cab. Flip it on and turn the volume up to listen and sing along to your favorite songs. It’s the perfect way to stop loneliness and homesickness in its tracks!

You need to find the right jams for your rides, but they don’t necessarily have to be classic, truckin’ country songs. Check out the modern ways to fill your cab with tons of music.

Update Your Radio


It can be quite the hassle to scan through random radio stations to finally find one that you like. Then all of the sudden it may cut to a lengthy commercial break. Also, after you’ve traveled a while it will turn to static and you will have to find a radio station you like all over again.

However, all of this issues can be avoided by subscribing to Sirius XM radio. Now this will give you access to thousands of satellite radio stations that you can listen to at any time. You can find your favorite sports talk station, country station, rap station, and more. There is literally something for everyone.

Ditch The Radio


These days you don’t even need a radio to get the best music you can get a streaming app like Pandora to instantly play the songs that you want. Plus, you can use them to create personal stations to play songs like the ones you like.

For example, if you like Toby Keith you can create a Toby Keith station and listen to music like his all day long. If you like a song you can give them a thumbs up and it will play more frequently.

If you don’t like a song, don’t worry, you don’t have to listen to it ever again. Just give it a thumbs down and it won’t come on your radio station again.
 
TruckLogics suggests finding an interesting trucking podcast
You might be one of those truckers who knows what they like and doesn't want to hear anything else. That’s fine, all you need to do is get an iPod or MP3 player and build your own personal playlist.

Try A Podcast Or Audiobook


Podcasts are starting to really take off. They’re like radio shows with more personality and fewer commercials. Plus, you can find podcast shows about murder mysteries, sports, politics, and more! There are even trucking podcasts like Big Rig Banter, Trucker Dump, and more. Use a podcast app or iTunes to find some interesting shows.

As a driver, you probably don’t have a lot of time to read, but with an audiobook, you can have someone else do the work for you. Simply buy the book you want or use an audiobook app to stream interesting novels. Audiobooks provide hours of entertaining and educational content.

Enjoy Your Ride


You don’t have to ride in silence. Fight the solitude of the open road by literally bringing music or podcasts to your ears. There's nothing like a favorite song or interesting story to stop loneliness and homesickness.

Improve Communication With Your Dispatcher

TruckLogics supports Truckers and Dispatchers working well together
Sometimes truckers and dispatchers don’t have the best relationship. There’s nowhere to point the blame because it only takes one bad apple to ruin the bunch. While not all dispatchers or all truckers are to blame, sometimes there are a few people who are pretty unqualified in the industry.

However, every time you run into a problem you can’t just assume it’s your dispatcher’s fault and chalk it up to them stinking. Be a professional and take the high road by learning how to effectively communicate with your dispatcher to make your job easier.

How To Communicate With Your Dispatcher


Keep in mind that your dispatcher is extremely busy. On average, they may have 10 or more drivers to keep up with on a daily basis. That's a lot of freight tracking and planning to make sure that every load goes from it’s starting and ending location on time.

Therefore, if a dispatcher seems busy or short with you don’t take it personally. They need to be masters of multitasking to get everything done. You can make a good impression by treating them like a human and asking how they are doing and by making a little conversation when you speak with them.

While they may not always have time for small talk making a good impression will help them remember you and may result in your dispatcher working in your favor to give you the hours that you want.

Also, remember that it helps to speak the way you would like to be spoken to. That means be polite and avoid the use of profanity. Also, be direct and tell your dispatcher what you need and if you can accept a load.

Even though dispatchers are often considered to be the mystical heroes in the background of the trucking industry, they can’t read your mind. You have to let them know what you’re unhappy with, or if you’re under hours for the week. If you are, you should let them know with gentle, polite reminders.
 
Truck dispatching is easy with the help of TruckLogics
Be sure to talk to them about something that bothers you with a clear head, before it builds up to avoid exploding about it later.

Dispatchers can only work with the loads that are available and with the fluctuating market sometimes the available loads will be more profitable than others. Know that sometimes you will have some driver detention to deal with, but it’s not the end of the world. You can calmly ask for loads to make up for it.

It’s also important to be responsive and reliable. If a problem arises, like your truck breaks down, call your dispatcher immediately to let them know so they can work on resolving the issue of a possible late delivery with the client.

Only accept work that you know you can complete. Also, if you accept a load, be sure to follow through with delivering it on time to remain dependable in your dispatcher’s eyes. This is the best way to build trust with them.

If you two get into a scruff, it’s only human nature. Both dispatching and trucking are jobs that involve a high level of stress. However, you need to stay calm and don’t lose control of your mouth. If you escalate the situation with cursing and personal insults you won’t look good. If your dispatcher attacks you or uses profanity speak to their manager about it.

Teamwork Makes The Dream Work


Dispatchers and trucking go together like peanut butter and jelly. You need both to get the job done. Even though sometimes the relationship can feel like peanut butter and ranch, do your best to maintain a professional relationship to make your job easier.

How To Be An Incredible Dispatcher

dispatcher dispatches semi trucksDispatchers can be unrecognized heroes in the trucking industry as they get trucks from point a to point b and make sure they stay on schedule. If you’re joining a new fleet as a dispatcher or if you’re looking to hire a dispatcher for your fleet be aware that a good dispatcher can make or break a trucking business.

Everyone in the trucking industry has heard a bad dispatcher story or has their own experience to share. Don’t become another part of trucking lore. Instead, check out our tips on how to up your dispatching game.

How To Be An Incredible Dispatcher


Have Good Communication Skills

Truckers already deal with enough people who make them feel like another number when they deserve respect. Talk to your drivers politely and take interest in what they are saying. Avoid the use of profanity and don’t try to cut calls short or rush your drivers off the phone.

We know that dispatchers lead a busy lifestyle, so it’s perfectly fine to be direct with drivers some days, but remember that you will be talking to them on a daily basis and everything will go much smoother with a positive attitude.

Even though you will be receiving tons of calls on a daily basis, you can't use that as an excuse to ignore your quiet drivers. Call and check in with everyone.

Keep Calm And Prioritize

Grab a cup of coffee and relax. You know as a dispatcher that you have a lot on your plate and stressing out about it won’t help you accomplish anything. Make a list of what you need to get done, then prepare for your list to get a little unorganized as you begin to multitask during the day.

You will always have a lot going on at once, so it’s important to be able to have the ability to quickly decide which task is the most important.

Do you need to reroute a driver or contact a client to let them know their delivery will be late first? Do you need to call your driver back to answer questions about a terminal or check on a driver you haven't heard from yet today? These are only a few examples of the daily chaos you might face.

Don’t Get Mad

disptacher texts driverYou are the middleman between your driver and the customer. That means that you usually get the earfuls of their complaints. If the driver is going to be late you may have a very frustrated client to deal with. Also, if the client needs your driver to delay their delivery by a few hours you may have an angry driver to deal with.

Take a few deep breaths and keep your composure. If you let your anger get the best of you the situation could escalate or you could lose a client. Also, if your driver gets angry they could take it out in the form of road rage, which is extremely dangerous.

Be Prepared To Plan

As a dispatcher, a lot more goes into your routes then simply getting a driver from a starting and ending location. You need to figure out how to cut costs, be efficient, and most importantly, keep your drivers safe.

Try to plan the most direct routes with safe passage for truckers. Also, don’t push a driver past their limits. If they need to stop because they are tired or sick, let them.

To cut costs you can try to combine shipments, find routes with the cheapest fuel prices, try to negotiate rates with shippers, and more.

Become A Dispatching Legend


Dispatching trucks can be a job that deals with a high level of stress on a daily basis, but as the backbone of trucking, we need you! With a little planning and the ability to keep calm and prioritize you’ll lead your drivers to greatness.
