An important part of trucking for everyone involved including dispatchers, shippers, carriers, and more is knowing where the actual truck is during a trip. How do they do that? They are updated with a check call. The driver calls to check in with their company and dispatcher once or twice a day to update them on their location, progress, and to receive any important instructions.
Your business can simplify this process with 6 check calls. Eliminate needless phone calls and save your dispatchers time when you streamline your trucking business by putting everything online. Making check calls an instant and hassle-free process that drivers can do easily from the road and dispatchers can manage without a phone call is important!
The Only 6 Check Calls You Need
- Starting Trip
- At Shipper
- Pickup Complete
- At Consignee
- Drop-Off Complete
Using your TruckLogics app, you an make 6 check calls: Starting Trip, At Shipper, Pickup Complete, Enroute, At Consignee, and Drop-Off Complete. The Starting Trip check call can only be made once by the driver. The At Shipper, Pickup Complete, At Consignee, and Drop-off Complete check calls can only be made once per shipper/consignee.
