Bill has a problem.
Bill has grandkids and his wife thinks she’s Mrs. Claus.
With the holiday’s interruptions, his billing is going down faster than old St. Nick down the chimney. It’s the end of the year and his regular lane is going to be half the usual load. Bill is feeling like a Grinch whenever he drives past the shopping malls along the highways. He doesn’t want to – but when everywhere he goes, he hears the jingle of holiday gifts – and worries paying for them.
A short load is a small invoice. What else can he do?
Less Than Full Load (LTL)
Moving into LTL (less than truck load) shipping is a big challenge. The steps sound simple.
Go on a load board. Find a load the right size, weight, and destination. Get the load before someone else does. Figure out how to load the shipments, the routes, and the deliveries. Then bill the shippers.
Not so easy after all – but it’s worth it. A full truck load may be best per mile. But by putting loads together, you can increase your billing and may make more profit.
It’s the billing that many truckers struggle with. This is the strength of TruckingOffice Pro – just like our basic program TruckingOffice, you enter your dispatch information one time and the computer does the work for your invoicing, but it also will take care of your
- Driver settlements
- Business reports
Bill can solve his problem by going LTL. Like Santa’s sleigh filled with different packages, Bill’s trailer can be filled with different packages to make his customers, his pocket, and his wife, all very happy.
TruckingOffice Pro is here to help. When you enter the load data into the dispatch form, you’re entering all the information the system needs for all the other reports – no need for you to worry about tracking data.
We’ll wrap it up with a pretty bow when you need it. *
