Ever agree to haul a load and have it canceled at the last minute? You probably get The Godfather line – “it’s not personal, it’s business.”
The trucking industry is pretty rough and there are brokers out there that don’t have the best intentions. You need to protect yourself, and you can do that by sending a load-rate confirmation to be signed so you are guaranteed a certain amount of payment, ensuring your time is not wasted. With TruckLogics, you can quickly email or fax a rate confirmation with an order summary. You can even attach a cancellation clause to weed out those untrustworthy brokers and get paid a percentage of the order is ever canceled before being picked up. Sending out your rate confirmation is easy.
Sending Rate Confirmation/Order Summary
1. Create the Order Once you receive the load information with a pickup and drop off destination, you will need to create the order and TruckLogics will auto-fill the details into a rate confirmation. TruckLogics will automatically calculate the distance and payment amount based on your hauling fees. Click Create Order, then you will be able to review the rate confirmation.
2. Review Rate Confirmation
After you click Create Order, you will be brought to your Order Summary page. Select the Document tab at the top of the page. From there you can review your load rate confirmation and order summary before sending it out.
3. Send via Email or Fax
When everything looks good, make sure the documents you want to send are checked. Then, all you have to do is click Send E-Mail.
Upload Your Own Documents
If you have your own rate confirmation template that you would like to send instead of the one provided for you, you can easily upload any document and attach it to your order summary to send out. This also goes for any additional terms and conditions, including a cancellation clause. From the Documents section of your order (step 2), select Upload New Document, and you can attach any document you want to the order and send it to your customer all at the same time.
When you have received your signed documents, the order can be quickly assigned and dispatched. Your driver will receive the dispatch information via our mobile app. The entire process, depending on how fast you received your signed load rate confirmation, takes only a few minutes, and then the wheels start turnin’ and you start earnin’.
