The fleet manager can send the request to the shipper/consignee to e-sign the BOL from the BOL Activity section of the dispatch. They can do it from either the web app or the TruckLogics mobile app.
Here are the ways a Shipper/Consignee can e-sign the BOL:
When an e-sign request is made, an email notification with an embedded link is sent to the shipper or consignee. On click of this link, options to electronically sign the BOL is available.
Though shippers/consignees do not have access to the TruckLogics account, they are likely to be in close proximity to the driver at the pick-up and drop-off locations. Taking this into consideration, provision for shippers/consignees to electronically sign on the driver’s mobile device is available.
E-sign on Driver’s Mobile
To allow this, the driver first needs to have a TruckLogics account. Here’s how the driver signs in to their mobile app:
At the pick-up or drop-off location, the driver can have the shipper/consignee e-sign on their device.
When the BOL is e-signed by the shipper/consignee, a notification email is sent to the fleet manager. The status will reflect under the BOL Activity section of the dispatch. The option to resend the e-sign section is also available to the fleet manager.
