Load Manager offers powerful texting capabilities that allow you to dispatch loads via SMS text message. The body of the text message will auto-fill with crucial load information such as: Pickup and Delivery address, dates, times, contact info, and notes. The texting feature costs $15 per month for 200 messages. Any additional messages would be $.05 per message. Your email must be set up in order to use this feature. For help setting up your email, please see our Email Setup Knowledge Base article. To dispatch a driver via SMS text message:
- Click the envelope symbol next to the “Rate Con” button.
- Select “Text Dispatch”.
- The “To:” field should auto-populate with the driver’s cell phone number. You may type in this field if you need to change the cell number.
- The body of the text will auto-populate with the important info from the load. You may also type in here if you’d like to change something.
