Maybe you’re depending on Google Maps or Mapquest to plan your routes. Why not? It’s free and pretty easy to use. But both have limitations that require you to do a lot of figuring out to determine the total mileage per state. Maybe for one truck, that’s not a big deal. The IFTA for one truck isn’t so bad, right?
Fleet Managers Don’t Have One Truck
You’ve got a fleet. Figuring out the mileage for every state would be a nightmare – one you don’t wake up from.
You need information and you need it in a format that you can use – not add and subtract with paper or pencil or even with a spreadsheet. Too many errors that can cost you a lot of money can slip in with just one mistake.
In the end, you need a software package that handles mileage and directions. Because if your trucker gets lost, those miles count too.

Best Practices: What This Revolutionary Business Concept Can Do for You
“Best practices” is a phrase that gets tossed around in a lot of white-color business circles. But what does a concept used by the shirt-and-tie crowd have to do with transportation professionals like yourself? Plenty, it turns out. You see, “best practices” refers to a very simple idea: that there’s not only a right way to do things, there’s one way that’s more “right” than all the others. By following the best path every time you go down a particular road, you boost your chances for financial success. It works for Fortune 500 companies, and it will work for you too, whether you run one truck or 1,000.
There’s a catch, though. You can only implement best practices if you know what they are in the first place. This comes back to understanding what’s truly going on inside your company at all levels. TruckingOffice software for truck drivers gives you this power, arming you with the data and transparency you need to slash waste, streamline processes, and replicate success over and over.
Why Truckers Need Software
You chose the trucking industry because you like the idea of being your own boss. But now, you’ve learned that being the boss involves a lot more than hauling freight.
Sure, it’s great out there on the road. Beautiful scenery with the highway stretching out ahead and the sense of adventure that comes with road-tripping. But, at the end of the run, someone has to account for those miles, hours, and fuel. Guess who that person is? That’s right, it’s you.
Fortunately, there’s an easier way than spending hours filling out hand-generated reports. One of the most significant aspects of trucking software is that it helps you gain control over your operation. Here’s a brief summary of what to expect and how you can benefit from trucking software:
- Our TMS is easily integrated with your ELD to provide more accurate reports.
- Helps you avoid HOS errors and fines.
- Invoicing is done automatically to ensure you get paid on time.
