Enhancement Alert: Truckload Workflows

We released our robust Truckload Workflow earlier this year and recently added Contracted Rates.  Now take a moment to check out the other features we've added thanks to our customers' feedback and requests.

Editing Options

Users have more options when they need to edit quote requests that are currently In Process.  When editing a quote request, we will rerate via API if any weights, hazardous, pickup date, or postal code changes are made, which will retract any previously added API rates.

Changes to stop dates and addresses apply to all trucks on the quote request (except any that have previously been awarded).  Click the Edit request link in the slider to see more:

Truckload Equipment Favorites

Users can pin up to six equipment types as 'favorites' so they pre-populate first when starting a new TL quote.  Check it out here: User Preferences.

This feature is supported within your Contracted Rates as well!

 

Handling Unit Dimensions

Users can specify handling unit dimensions on the booking page for their truckload shipments. This can help your carriers have access to this information when they confirm a load and for this information to appear on your BOLs.
