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.
