How-to Tuesday: Multi-Truck Dispatching

TruckLogics makes even the most complex dispatches scenarios simple!

With TruckLogics, it’s easy to create dispatches for the most complex scenarios. For instance, we make it easy to add multiple trucks, drivers, and stops to a single load.

In this scenario, a driver with one truck is picking up a trailer and dropping it back in their company’s lot. Then, the next day another driver with another truck is picking up the trailer and taking it to the customer.

Here’s how easy it is to create multi-truck dispatches with TruckLogics!

2. Enter yourself as a customer.
