Also, attach your repair receipts to each truck. If there ever is a warranty repair needed, no more fumbling for the paperwork!
To close out this series the 8th video will cover paperless “Carrier Onboarding” with MyCarrierPackets. By using MyCarrierPackets you can on-board a carrier in just 5 minutes instead of the typical 45 minutes.

We often hear from TMS Software users about other “high end” TMS’s which appear more robust than ours. These systems are not only very expensive but they are overly complicated. After you learn more about Load Manager you will see we also have many robust features. However our prices won’t cost you an arm and a leg. In fact we offer a free TMS Software trial of your choosing. You can also browse our add-on products in the “Free Trial” part of our web-site.
