Managing Independent Contractors With TruckLogics 

When you set up your TruckLogics account you can grant multi-user access to your employees with different levels of permissions in their accounts so they can access different aspects of your business to either help complete work or access their records. This way your drivers can access their settlements at any time to know how much they were paid and when.

Driver Settlements

It’s also extremely quick and easy to create driver settlements. The pay will be automatically calculated based on your settings. You can choose to pay your drivers per mile, loaded mile, with a percentage of the revenue, or manually and the hauling charge will automatically be calculated.

Your fuel charges can be calculated based off of mileage, percentage of revenue, or from a flat fee, You can also add accessorial fees. To save time we have listed a few to choose from, but you can also create a custom fee.

You can also add reimbursements and deductions to the settlement at any time and we will automatically calculate the balance for you. If you need to advance your driver’s pay you can deduct the cost and add the reason for the deduction to keep clear and concise records.
