In the world of Less Than Truckload (LTL) orders, owner-operators and fleet managers turn into skilled composers – efficiently organizing and dispatching drivers in a fast-paced, syncopated rhythm. TruckLogics makes orchestrating LTL orders simple so you can focus on what’s ahead for your business. Let’s take a closer look at how LTL orders work in TruckLogics.
LTL orders are the norm in parcel delivery, but are utilized for freight transportation across the industry as well. Creating an LTL order is actually pretty simple and TruckLogics lets you enter the information, organize the trip by dragging and dropping route stops, send check calls to customers, and finish strong by emailing professional-looking invoices to your clients.
Creating An LTL Order
Step 1. Choose the LTL option when you select to enter a new order.
Step 2. Enter order details and save
Step 3. Dispatch order and add additional LTL orders directly to the dispatch.
Route Planning & Check Calls
You can easily add, remove, and organize route stops for drivers and they can view everything from the TruckLogics app. Drivers can update check calls directly from the app and you know the progress of each order. You can even send check call notifications to your clients to keep them updated.
If a driver is already en route and you discover they can pick up an additional order, you can quickly add the LTL order to their dispatch. Your driver will be notified via email and can view all new order details in their TruckLogics app.
When creating the invoice for each order, the order details (including freight details) will auto-generate and you can set the due date, include additional notes and even add a memo for your customer. To give your invoices a professional touch, be sure to upload your company logo in your account settings.
