Each vehicle can be assigned truck service intervals based on mileage or time.
If you select mileage, TruckLogics can track automatically track mileage for each vehicle as it is dispatched.
TruckLogics will even send you reminders when your trucks are reaching their service intervals. All this can help you stay ahead of the curve and increase your owner-operator income.
