TruckLogics offers a few inbuilt features a truck owner should be aware of before assigning a driver or a truck to a dispatch. These come in handy, especially for Fleet Managers with multiple trucks & trailers and multiple drivers to manage their fleet.
Here’s what they facilitate:
Driver & Truck Preferences
Setting the truck preferences for drivers and the trailer preferences for trucks makes it convenient for fleet managers to assign trucks with the right trailer type during the dispatch. The option to choose a different truck or trailer is available, though. These preferences are accessible from the menu TruckZone >> Driver Preferences.
The Dispatch Schedule feature lists whether a truck is available or not on a particular day. The fleet manager can then decide on the dispatch date based on the availability of the truck.
It helps find unavailable trucks, ones that are assigned for LTL shipments and are on delivery. You can filter the truck status specific to month, week, and date. The feature is accessible from either the menu Dispatches or from the dashboard.
Assign Driver & Truck
While creating a quick dispatch or a dispatch for an existing load, you can assign the driver(s) and truck. The driver then gets the notification on the assigned dispatches.
Here's how you assign a driver and truck to a dispatch:
To reassign a driver for a dispatch, go to Driver & Equipment tab and tap Unassign to unassign a driver. Before unassigning a driver, make sure to void that driver's settlement, if made any.
