The Mighty Bill of Lading or B.O.L. Report

The Importance of the B.O.L.

Efficient load management and smooth transportation operations are crucial for success in the freight industry. And the Bill of Lading (B.O.L.) is a critical document in this process, serving as a legally binding contract between the shipper, carrier, and receiver. It outlines the terms and conditions of the transportation agreement, acting as a receipt, a document of title, and a proof of delivery. This provides crucial information about the goods being transported.

In the present era of technology, automation has made many operations simpler. So the automatic generation of B.O.L.s through Load Manager TMS can streamline processes and save time. You see, B.O.L.s are automatically created while building a load. So they can be easily printed or emailed directly from the load screen. Additionally, customization is easy.

How to Access your B.O.L.

Once you save your load, a B.O.L. report will automatically be ready for your use. Here is what to do:

  1. Access the B.O.L. Report. Go to the Load Screen for the specific load you wish to work with and click on the “B.O.L. Report” button. A new page will appear, providing you with options to customize your BOL Report.
  2. Modify or enter information. On the BOL Report page, you can modify or enter information in any of the fields as needed. And this allows you to include accurate and relevant details on the BOL, such as shipment-specific instructions or additional information required.
  3. Choose your preferred format. Finally, select your preferred format for the BOL. You can choose to print the BOL, email it directly from the Load Manager platform, or download a PDF version.

How to Customize the BOL

See an item on the BOL you want to change? Customizing your Bill of Lading (BOL) within Load Manager is a breeze. Allowing you to tailor it to your specific needs. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. Two Terms and Conditions Options. Choose to use the preset terms and conditions for your BOL or create a template with your own BOL terms. Both BOL formats will be available from your load screen for your convenience.
  2. Automate Items Listed. Determine whether you want the items listed on the BOL to be automatically generated from the Accessorials and Commodities tables in the Load screen or if you prefer to input them manually. Choose the option that suits your workflow best.
  3. Carrier Name Display. Decide whether you want the carrier’s name to appear on the B.O.L., or if you only want the driver’s name to appear.
  4. Preset Email Subject Line. If you’re sending a BOL by email using Load Manager, then you can automatically set the subject line text of the email. So this feature enables easy identification of BOL-related emails.
  5. Dispatch Fee. When dispatching on behalf of a company for a dispatch fee, the BOL will show the carrier’s names on the BOL.

By following these steps, you can effortlessly customize your BOL within Load Manager. Thus ensuring that it aligns with your specific requirements and provides comprehensive information for your shipping operations.

the Advantage Load Manager Provides for BOL Creation

Load Manager is an excellent choice for customizing your Bill of Lading (BOL) due to its user-friendly interface and powerful features. Here’s why Load Manager stands out:

  1. Efficiency. Load Manager streamlines the B.O.L. customization process, saving you time and effort. With automated generation based on inputted information, you can quickly generate accurate B.O.L.s for each load.

Office Feature: Protect Company Data, Streamline User Management and Team Workflow

Are you a logistics company with multiple teams, each with its own customers or loads? Then you need to check out the Office Feature in your TMS. The Office feature in Load ManagerTMS was initially envisioned to streamline workflow efficiency in multi-location logistics companies by separating different customers and loads. Now, it has evolved into a powerful administrative tool, allowing isolating loads and customers for physically separated teams and in virtual settings.

Protecting Your Book of Business

One of the key advantages of the Load Manager TMS Office feature is its ability to protect your book of business. By isolating loads and customers so only those who need to see it do, sensitive information remains confidential and accessible only to authorized personnel. This is especially valuable when working with independent dispatchers, as you can assign loads and customers to specific offices, ensuring data security and minimizing the risk of breaches. Sales agents also benefit from this feature by maintaining their own customer lists, safeguarding personal relationships, and enhancing customer service.

Optimize Workflow and Permissions

Managing logistics operations across multiple locations can be challenging, but Load Manager TMS Office feature simplifies the process. With automated sorting and assignment of customers, each user is associated with a specific office, allowing for streamlined operations and improved workflow efficiency.

Adapting to Physical and Virtual Environments

The Office feature in Load Manager TMS goes beyond physical separation and extends to virtual environments. With remote teams becoming more prevalent, it becomes crucial to maintain data integrity and security.

Load Manager TMS Launches New Feature to Enhance Load Management

Check out our New Feature to Track Late-Arriving Loads

Load Manager TMS has recently launched a new load management tool to make it easier for dispatchers and administrators to track and manage late-arriving loads. This feature provides greater visibility and accountability for managing loads and dispatching while also helping to track carrier or driver performance. Now that your team can easily see late loads, your ability to respond to potential problems is more significant.

The “Arrived Late?” Checkmark Option

The new feature is available on the load screen, where dispatchers and administrators can find a checkmark option called “Arrived Late?”. This option can be manually checked or automated using Load Manager’s Mobile Dispatch or GPS options. If a load arrives late, the system will note this on all relevant reports for “Sales” and “Sales Details.” Now, when you create Report, you will see which stops were late and how many.

Automated Time Entry Format

When using automation, you must enter the time with a specific format. Specifically, the arrival time should be entered in a 0000 or 00:00 format. Do not use a time range. This ensures accurate tracking of late arrivals and a smoother load management process. If a driver arrives late, the “Arrived Late?” checkmark will be marked automatically by the system with the arrival time entered.

Benefits of the New Feature

Load Manager’s new feature streamlines the load management process, giving your team a quick and easy way to track late-arriving loads. By easily seeing potential issues, dispatchers can take appropriate action to resolve them. Consequently, this improves load management efficiency, reduces costs, and enhances customer satisfaction.

To view how many loads arrived late, go to the “Reports” section of Load Manager TMS. Choose either “Sales” or “Sales Details.” Then select your reporting criteria and choose “View Report.” In the totals section of the report, you will see how many loads are late in red, as seen below. Each late arriving load will be marked with an asterisk (*).

A screenshot of the new reporting feature

Visibility and Accountability

One of the key benefits of this feature is that it provides greater clarity and accountability for load management. Dispatchers and administrators can easily see which loads are arriving late and take immediate action to resolve any issues. This level of clarity can also improve the overall performance of carriers and drivers and the dispatching process itself in two ways: First, when in the load screen, users will now see that a load was late, providing them an opportunity to address the matter in real time. Second, administrators and supervisors can now see the trends of late-arriving loads prominently on “Sales” and “Sales Details” reports. Helping them find and address issues before they significantly impact revenue.

Tracking Carrier or Driver Performance

Also, the “Arrived Late?” feature can track carrier or driver performance. By monitoring late arrivals, dispatchers and administrators can identify patterns and trends and take action to improve performance. This can lead to better driver retention, improved carrier relationships, and better overall load management.

To run a report on a specific carrier or independent driver. Select the “Reports” section on your Load Manager TMS. In “Sales” or “Sales Details,” choose the “Carrier/Driver” option in the “Group By” section. Select your other report criteria. Lastly, choose the carrier/driver or range for whose performance you wish to see. Then click “Run Report.” This report will show you the specific loads each carrier or independent driver trucked and the percentage of late loads. This invaluable tool will assist you in more accurate load deliveries.


Load Manager’s new feature is a valuable tool for companies that rely on efficient load management. This feature allows dispatchers and administrators to easily monitor and manage late-arriving loads, improving visibility, accountability, and performance.

Dispatch Services Demo for Tyris’ Class

Load Manager TMS software is a dispatch management system that helps dispatchers manage a load’s entire life cycle. In a recorded presentation for a friend’s freight broker and dispatch services training class, Scott from Load Manager provided a step-by-step guide on using their system to onboard a new carrier and dispatch a load. Starting with carrier onboarding and ending with the final settlement.


Scott recommends accessing the Carrier menu in Load Manager’s system and clicking “Add Carrier.” Here, the dispatcher can enter the carrier’s MC number, DOT number, and other contact information. The system also allows for attaching documents and sending email communications. If needed, Load Manager also supports digital signatures.

Once you have entered the carrier’s information, the dispatcher can charge the dispatching fee as a percentage or a flat rate. The next step is adding a new load to the system, including the shipper, pickup, delivery dates, appointment times, and delivery locations. The system also allows for adding accessorials, such as lumper fees for loading heavy items.

Dispatching and Tracking

After saving the load, the dispatcher can dispatch it to the driver via email or mobile rate. The latter option allows the driver to send their location via GPS so that the dispatcher can track the load’s progress. Throughout the load cycle, the dispatcher can create reports to show the loads dispatched for a particular carrier and the related dispatch fees.

For dispatchers looking to move into brokerage, Load Manager also supports this change. The dispatch fee should be zero when entering a carrier, as the carrier is now considered the vendor. The dispatcher can still use Load Manager’s system to manage their dispatch services while brokering freight.

Load Manager GPS Tracking

Overall, Load Manager TMS software offers a comprehensive solution for dispatchers to manage the entire life cycle of a load, from carrier onboarding to final settlement. With features like email communications, mobile rate, and GPS tracking, Load Manager streamlines the dispatch process and provides greater visibility into load progress.
