5 Steps for Easier Dispatches: Fleet Management Software
Whether you’re part of a small fleet or an Owner Operator, there are plenty of difficulties when it comes to fleet overhead. That’s one of the reasons we made TruckLogics, after all.
Since so much in this industry is getting more and more complicated, we’ve aimed to make TruckLogics even easier. As far as fleet management software goes, TruckLogics is ahead of the curve when it comes to ease of use.
How easy is TruckLogics? It’s simple enough that you can create a dispatch in 5 easy steps!
Create Your Dispatch
After you create an order in the system, you just need to click the button that says “Create Dispatch.” We told you it was easy! After that, you just choose “New Dispatch” or “Add to Dispatch.” After that, assign your drivers!
Assign Driver & Equipment
Your next step is to click assign. From here, you simply need to select a driver from the list – you can also select two drivers at this point. After that, choose your truck and trailer, and then it’s all a matter of clicking assign.
At this point, you can choose a default pick-up and drop-off location for each client to save time creating loads. You can also add a custom pick-up or drop-off location if needed. TruckLogics also allows you to enter specific instructions for the driver, or contact information for the pick-up and drop-off points.
The next few steps will walk you through what it takes to calculate your hauling fees (per mile, per ton, manually, etc.), fuel surcharge, and accessorial fees for lumper, stop off, tarp, (or) custom charges. Not only that, but with the TruckLogics fleet management software, you also get to integrate our dispatching feature with your address book and the Truck Zone.
Complete Your Dispatch
This integration makes sending a dispatch a fast, effortless process – going as far as auto-filling most of the fields for you. That’s right – TruckLogics eliminates time-wasting data entry and gets the job done quicker. So go ahead and complete the rest!
Once you finish creating your dispatch with our fleet management software, remember that you can track your new dispatch and keep in touch with your driver using our Check Call feature.
Once the load is delivered, you’ll be able to pay your driver easy with our driver settlement software.
Thankfully, our dispatch process is so simple you shouldn’t run into any issues. But if you have any questions, we’re always able to answer your call from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from our Rock Hill, SC offices!
