Managing Shipments

The Shipments feature allows dispatch or other internal or administrative users to schedule estimated delivery or pickups for their drivers. When shipments are scheduled and assigned to a driver, the driver is notified and can view all details of the trip, including scheduled deliveries and pickups. A Shipments report is also available to list previously scheduled shipments and their details.
