How to Select a Trucking Software for Small Fleets

As a trucking company grows, load management and accounting software become increasingly important to maximizing efficiencies while building a stronger, more profitable company. With a shortage of truck drivers, and the demand for hiring drivers in this industry, the key is also finding a software that can integrate with your payroll to ensure drivers are paid in a timely manner.

What is considered a small fleet of trucks?

Trucking companies with 50 or fewer vehicles that manage up to 100 vehicles can be considered a small trucking operation. This is also a range in which managing a trucking company can be the most profitable.

How to Manage Profitability

Keeping overhead down and managing truckloads efficiently can help improve your trucking company’s profitability as it grows. One way to do this is to integrate your Trucking Management System (TMS) for your operations.
This includes a software that can help you manage equipment, drivers, and customer orders to achieve maximum efficiency. Operations Management should include order entry, load planning and tracking, customer service, driver management and dispatch.

What other Services Should My TMS Offer?

For improved efficiency within your trucking company, be sure your trucking software integrates with your accounting system. This includes freight billing, accounts receivable, settlement/payroll, accounts payable, and financial reporting. For maximum efficiency, ask about document imaging workflow to manage the paperwork from driver to invoicing.
