What is Trucking Management Software?

There are plenty of great things about trucking, such as the freedom of the open road and the chance to see the country.  But there are other things that aren’t so great, like New York City traffic, bad weather, and paperwork.  Trucking management software won’t help with the traffic or the weather, but it can definitely make the paperwork a whole lot quicker and easier! Anyone who has ever been an independent carrier or has run his or her own trucking company knows what we’re talking about.  But if you’re just thinking about getting into the business, here are a few of the things you’ll need to keep track of:
  1. Dispatch records
  2. Driver pay records
  3. Invoices
  4. Interstate Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) reports and payments
  5. Truck maintenance records
  6. Mileage reports
  7. Expense records
  8. Management reports (a way to track the analytics of your business, such as expenses per mile or profit per mile)
Most of these forms involve a lot of math, and each must be filled out correctly to avoid fines and penalties.  This used to mean spending hours hunched over a giant stack of papers, figuring, refiguring, and triple-checking everything to make sure that it all added up—and don’t even get us started on the hassles of dealing with an audit!
