Why SemiDispatch is the perfect dispatch software for your trucking company
SemiDispatch is a great solution for owner operators and small trucking companies. SemiDispatch will save you time and headaches managing your dispatch and trucking operations. Here are some reasons why we are the perfect dispatch software for your trucking company.
When you book a load with a broker or a customer you can enter all of the information in one place. When entering a load you can assign multiple origin and destination locations so you can track all important shipper and receiver information. Then you can assign the driver, truck, and trailer to the load. If you have more than one driver handling the load from origin to destination, you can split the load between different drivers and trucks as well.
Each load is assigned a broker or customer that you will bill after delivery. Simply choose your broker and enter the rate you’re doing the haul for. You can also add deductions and reimbursements to invoice, such as lumpers and detention. Once you enter this information, it will automatically show up once you’re ready to invoice the broker. You no longer need to remember to add charges to invoices; SemiDispatch does it for you automatically.
At times you need to reimburse your owner operators or drivers. During load entry you have the ability to add expenses and deductions for drivers, such as tolls, scales, and more. When you create a pay statement for the driver, these expenses will automatically appear on the statement.
The best part of our load management is that it is very easy to track your load from the time you book it until you invoice your broker and pay your drivers. Once a load is delivered, you can invoice your broker with one click of a button – all the information will automatically appear on the invoice. When you’re ready to pay your drivers and owner operators, the load details will also appear on the pay statement.
Whether you’re running one truck or fifty, it is important to keep track of your trucks and trailers. SemiDispatch allows you to do just that. You can enter information such as the year, make, plate, and VIN of your truck or trailer. You can manage information such as odometer readings, insurance expirations, inspection expirations, and service intervals. SemiDispatch will also alert you when your truck is due for a scheduled maintenance based on the service interval.
Another great benefit of our equipment management is the ability to upload documents. You can upload truck inspections, registrations, and more to have all the important info in one place. This allows you to have all of your records easily accessible and handy when you need to retrieve them.
Truck management wouldn’t be complete without truck maintenance management. With SemiDispatch you can add all of your truck and trailer maintenance records; both repairs and scheduled maintenance. When creating maintenance records, enter the type of repair, date, cost, and odometer. You are also able to upload scanned repair bills and invoices, so that all of the repair information is in one easily accessible spot.
Broker and Customer Management
Many trucking companies use multiple brokers and shipping customers, and SemiDispatch keeps track of all of it. Simply enter the broker’s name, address, and other important details. Contact and credit rating information is easily accessible so that you can keep in touch with your best customers and brokers. When you create invoices for your delivered loads, all broker information is automatically populated so that you can create an invoice with one click of a button! SemiDispatch also has integrated reporting to show you how much money you’ve made from your brokers and the number of loads you’ve hauled for them.
Driver and Payment Management
No truck dispatch software would be complete without a comprehensive driver and payment account management. Not to worry, SemiDispatch has you covered! SemiDispatch allows you to easily create payment accounts for drivers and owner operators that you will be paying for hauling your loads. Because some owner operators may have multiple drivers, a payment account helps you create one statement for the owner operators. Easily enter information such as payment address, tax IDs, compensation amounts, and more to have all the details in one easy to find place. SemiDispatch also has integrated reporting so you can see how much revenue each account has been generating.
Keeping detailed driver records is also crucial! Not only is it smart and common sense, it’s also a DOT regulation. With SemiDispatch you can keep all of your driver’s information in one place. Enter their CDL, address, license expiration, medical card expiration, hire and termination dates, and more. What makes SemiDispatch even better for your trucking company is the ability to upload driver documents as well. Simply upload documents such as CDL, medical card, employment application, drug test results, and more and you will be able to access it all on one screen! This not only helps you stay organized, but it saves you an enormous amount of time!
