Owning a fleet of trucks can be very problematic. If you have owned a fleet of trucks for a while then you know what I mean. Every day it seems like there are just multiple problems all day long. Everything from driver issues to customer related issues to sales problems. Some days everything is going wrong: drivers are running late, loads are being cancelled then other customers are adding loads – and just when you get all of that under control one of the trucks breaks down far from the home terminal. Managing a fleet of trucks is a very challenging juggling act sometimes. So it’s understandable that in the daily grind it is easy to neglect the big picture. Things like IFTA, preventive maintenance, DOT compliance, driver pay-roll, and taxes are often the difference between success and failure. As with most problems better management will equal better results. Truckingoffice provides the tools to better manage all of these daily problems, so that the big picture will take care of itself. Whether you have a small fleet and manage it solo, or a large fleet with a staff to help TruckingOffice puts all the pieces of the puzzle together.
