Create orders fast and easy
Better Truckin’ is built for speed. You can easily create an order from anywhere in the application and quickly enter the information. Enter the address for loading/unloading to get direct visual confirmation on the map.
Automatic route optimization
To minimize driving distance and thus the cost, you immediately get the most optimal route proposals displayed in the map view. As soon as you drag-and-drop an order into a mission, the route is drawn up. If you group load with multiple stops (LTL), the route proposals are updated every time you add a new order to the mission.
With the help of different filters, you will find what is relevant to you as a dispatcher. You can filter on e.g. Import, Export or specific geographical regions or persons. You always receive a clear summary of key performance indicators for the specific mission.
As a dispatcher, you track the mission and status in real-time. You receive warnings if an ongoing mission missed a loading / unloading at the set time and can easily communicate with the driver in the application. With integrated trailer GPS and/or FMS, you also see the real-time position of all trailers and trucks for which you are responsible.
Simple and smooth
As a dispatcher, you either send the mission directly to the driver, or a unique one-time link to the carrier who forwards it to the driver. When the driver receives the mission, the driver app on his smartphone alerts him that a new mission has been received. The driver then easily clicks through all activities and you as dispatcher can follow the transport step by step in real-time. All communication between drivers, carriers and dispatchers take place directly in the app and the entire dialogue is saved for the mission.
REVENUES, EXPENSES AND PROFIT
Full control of costs and revenues
A healthy balance between costs and revenues is what creates a profitable business. With Better Truckin’, you take control over both revenues and costs even before you send the mission to your carrier.
When you build your mission, you see the total revenue for the orders in the mission and when you choose carrier you immediately get the cost for the entire mission. If the profitability is too low, you can regroup orders or choose another carrier for the mission.
When you are satisfied, you send the mission to the carrier and have full control over profitability even before the mission has begun. You have made an active choice and it is such active choices that create a profitable business.
You shouldn’t have to spend time on invoicing. Your time should be spent developing your business and keeping customers happy. That’s why Better Truckin’ have integrations with the most common bookkeeping systems, to automatically create your invoices from inside Better Truckin’. You can easily choose to co-invoice multiple orders for the same customer or to invoice orders individually.
With invoicing through Better Truckin’, you avoid the administrative work of manually entering the invoices into your bookkeeping system. Everything is done automatically when you click the “invoice” button. And just like that, you reduce your administrative workload.
Instant mission-cost per carrier
In Better Truckin ‘, you can easily enter individual price lists for your carriers. Mileage cost, number of stops, tolls, etc. When you plan a mission and the route is drawn up based on the stops in your orders, you will immediately receive the total mission cost as soon as you have chosen preliminary carrier for the mission.
You can now choose to regroup orders or change carrier to optimize your cost for the mission. When you are satisfied, you send the mission to the carrier and have full control of the cost of the entire mission and for all the individual orders.
When you have planned a mission, you extract a settlement note / self-invoice from Better Truckin’ with a single click. All costs are included in the settlement note and Better Truckin takes into account the distance traveled in each country/state as well as any ferries used.
If you are a carrier who contract other carriers, you can easily create a settlement note for your contracted carrier at the same time as you create your own invoice for your customer.
