Dispatches are a pretty essential part of the trucking process. They let drivers know where to pick-up and drop off their loads, help you track your driver’s progress, and more. However, without a system to help you remember all the details about different dispatches important notes like specific instructions for the drivers or rates could get lost and forgotten.
That’s why TruckLogics, the number one operation efficiency program for transportation fleets developed a dispatching feature that allows fleet owners and managers to easily create, edit, record dispatches all from one convenient location.
