TruckingOffice overview

What is TruckingOffice?

TruckingOffice is an online trucking management software for small and mid-sized trucking businesses with up to 10 delivery trucks. The solution offers various trucking management features such as load planning, dispatch management, driver settlement, expense monitoring, tax filing, and reporting.

TruckingOffice helps truck owners to file Interstate Fuel Tax Agreements (IFTA) and ensures that all business records are compliant with standard reporting and auditing norms. The software’s dispatch management module helps to record drivers’ and customers’ personal details. The tool lets business managers enter driver's pay details and automate their monthly payment based on the deliveries made. The built-in invoicing tool allows users to create invoices and send digital copies to customers directly via email. The solution offers interactive customization tools to create personalized agreements and invoices that can be exported in multiple file formats or be shared with customers electronically.

TruckingOffice supports multiple driver payment models including pay per mile, pay by percentage, manual pay entry, and fixed monthly pay. The solution also offers different payment structures for permanent and temporary drivers. The software’s real-time alert and notification features enable business owners to set alerts for key milestones such as registrations renewal, agreement expiry, driver's CDL, medical cards expiry, and preventive maintenance.

TruckingOffice collaborates with PC Miler to calculate miles and integrates with QuickBooks to handle accounting needs. The solution offers customer support via email, phone, and video tutorials.

Review Source: Capterra

I’ve been looking for months for a program to do everything this does. I wanted to know how much it cost for dead head miles and profit/loss per mile. How much am I actually making per trip. Reminders for tags, physicals, expenses, maintenance, etc.

Pros
Easy to use and understand. A few minutes a day keeps up with all my back office/accounting.

Cons
As a car hauler, I have several BOL’s, drop offs, and pickups along the way. At first it was a little confusing because it wanted me to clarify the route. I thought it would give the best option and then I could make adjustments. Every time I added another load to the trip, I had to go through the clarification again. I now, save the trip as a PDF, for reference, so it’s no problem.

Keeps me extremely organized.

Pros
This software is a pleasure to work with. It's so simple, clean to look and and easy to use. I find myself actually wanting to do the bookkeeping just so I can run the various reports with one click and see how my business is doing. I tried other software options that were more feature-rich, but they ended up being unnecessarily complicated. As soon as I switched to Trucking Office, I knew that it was going to be a keeper. And don't fall for the bigger software options from others that allow you to integrate everything like load boards and factoring. The integration always results in a watered down version that is clunky. This then makes it necessary to go outside the software to the other provider anyway. Trucking officer is no-thrills basic stuff and that is really what is so great about it. No extra noise, no distracting designs and colors, just a very easy to use layout and features. Great Job!!! I will be a customer for a long time.

Cons
A mobile app or a least a more mobile friendly version would be nice. The software can be used on my smart phone okay, but it takes a bit of scrolling and snooping around to see where everything got squished to. Just needs to be optimized for mobile (adjust the layout) and should be no problem. When entering new customers/drops/vendors, it would be nice if the system auto populated options from the web (like Ascend TMS, this is Ascend's only redeeming feature, though), instead of requiring me to manually enter each new vendor. It does auto populate for future entries once they are entered though. Also, would be great if Trucking Office continued to build on their simple design with ELD (coming soon) and some sort of navigation / routing option (emailing directions to a driver, which this software can do, is too low tech). If whatever Trucking Office offers in the future is as easy to look and an use as this offering, I will sign up for it in a second.

There is quite a bit that Trucking office does do and offer. For a single truck operation it would be great. But for multiple truck operation and using with owner operators it lacks alot. Cons, 1. Driver settlements, only show what driver made, not what the gross of the load paid, so driver asks alot of questions about load especially if they are a percentage base driver. Owner operators are same issue. 2. No Quick-books integration or import/export options available available 3. Can not use for Freight Brokerage Pro's 1. Will automatically figure miles for all empty and loaded miles. 2. Keeps track of IRP miles too 3. Easy load generation, and customer shipper, and consignee setup 4. Great for LTL carriers as you create each load individually and then group all LTL onto a truck, trailer and driver.

All in all - Our experience since implementing TruckingOffice has been very positive. It is an easy program to get familiar with & use.

Pros
Since implementing TruckingOffice our department has been much more efficient when selecting fleets to transport select projects. We have increased the loads that we are able to carry for our partners as well as saved money because we are able to select fleets that will be most cost-effective for us/our partner.

Cons
Our company has contracts with select fleets - If there was a way to see when we have "hit" our quota for the month/quarter/year that would be beneficial that way our team knows we are still living within these contracts when selecting fleets. (Currently being tracked outside of TruckingOffice)

Makes keeping track of expenses and pay very easy

Pros
It's not complicated and does not take up all my time, when I'm not driving, to keep up on my company. Love the quickbooks exports so I don't have to re-enter all the information.

Cons
Export to Quickbooks stamps with date of export and not date in program, so I do have to go correct that info.
