In February’s Carrier Platform update, we said goodbye to infinite scrolling, deadhead backhauls, and annoying check calls by introducing:
- instant alerts on preferred loads
- recommended Reloads to refill your truck
- 100% online dispatching
Since then, we’ve been working hard to bring you even more features that keep your trucks moving and your fleet earning.
Our latest Carrier Platform update includes:
- new fleet management capabilities
- a refresh to carrier scorecards
Fleet management: save drivers & equipment to quickly assign at dispatch.
Managing your fleet just got way faster. Gone are the days spent wasting time manually (and repetitively) entering fleet information for every load during dispatch.
Get time back in your day and drastically reduce friction during dispatch by only adding your fleet information once. Simply save it in the platform in your fleet database now for faster, easier dispatch later.
How it works:
- Go to Carrier Settings
- Enter each driver, piece of equipment, truck, and trailer once
- Save the information to your fleet database
- At dispatch, quickly assign saved drivers and equipment
- Easily manage your fleet information by adding, editing, and deleting drivers, trucks, and trailers at any time
Carrier scorecards: get richer fleet performance insights.
We recently announced that some loads require minimum carrier scores to Book Now.
This month, we refreshed carrier scorecards, so you can easily oversee your fleet performance—and get on the path to booking those better, higher-paying loads.
The updates include:
