    We are currently testing a solution to different driver pay options.  It will be launched in the next week or two.  You will be able to pay a driver by the mile, percentage, or manually enter driver pay for each load.  I hope that you find this helpful.

    Would it be possible to allow a ZERO pay to the driver so that it's not automatically deducted from the load revenue?  As I mentioned we pay ourselves a salary and it would be convenient if we could simply enter it as an expense when we do.

  • Allen Campbell

    Yes, you will be able to choose to manually enter driver pay then simply leave it at zero.

    WHEN I INVOICE A BROKER I SEE THE GROSS PAY, BUT IF A BROKER GIVES ME AN ADVANCE WHERE DO I DEDUCT THE ADVANCE SO THAT I AM INVOICING A SMALLER GROSS?

    ALSO IF A DRIVER GETS AN ADVANCE WHERE DO I DEDUCT IT FROM HIS PAY?

  • Allen Campbell

    DJ,  after speaking with you on the phone I think that you have come up with a good temporary solution.  For an advance from a broker you can enter the amount in the "additional fee" space as a negative number to get the correct invoice amount.

    For the driver pay, you should use the "pay offset to driver" to enter in the amount of the advance.  Again enter it as a negative number.

    Also, I will talk to the development team about creating an easier way to do this.

    We currently pay our drivers by percentage, but also run a team operation that is split half and half. Currently, I have set up a "Driver" labeled team with the total percentage, but I wanted to edit the current drivers percentage to reflect the entire amount when they are driving solo.... Vacations etc. I have searched everywhere I can think and I can't update their pay percentage only add a new driver. Is there a way to edit, delete or should I just add two new entries?

    Thanks!! Chrystie

    Chrystie,  I think that the best way to do it is to set up a new driver like you suggested.  Then when they are not running as a team you can select them individually, and when they are running as a team you can still track it that way as well.

    The driver pay per mile feature has now been launched.  If you go to the driver details from the dashboard you now have the option to pay a driver by the mile or by percentage.  There will be a third option to manually enter driver pay soon.  I will add a post when that is available.  Thanks.

    Another issue is when a driver is on percentage pay, it's not exactly clear what the driver gets a percentage of.  Does it include the FSC?  Does it deduct the lumper?

    In the driver section there needs to be a list of check boxes to select what should be included in the driver's pay who is paid on percentage.  For example:  If a driver hires a lumper you advance him the money for the lumper, say $100.  For now, you enter that as a negative.  Then, in the lumper box, you enter $100 that you got reimbursed so it balances back out to 0.  What's not obvious is if the driver's percentage includes that $100 lumper fee which is part of the total.  If it does, a driver on %25 makes $25 off the lumper fee.

    Hello Rod,  thanks for the new suggestions.  In regards to this one, when drivers are paid on percent it is calculating the percentage of the line haul not the accessory charges.  Currently this feature is set up with an employee of an owner/operator in mind.  So if the driver makes 25% of the load then he would get paid 25% of the line haul only.  Then if he should get any extra money for expenses you could use the pay offset to driver for that and make comments in the comment box so that you would have a record of what happened on that load.  Going forward we plan to add more functionality to this process to make it more flexible.

    The manual driver pay option is now available.  Using this feature will allow you to enter any amount that you want to for diver pay, or you can leave it zero if you do not want to use the driver pay features.  These three driver pay options should allow for the many variations in today's trucking industry.

    Hello Allen, none of my reports are adding up to the correct amounts. (Driver pay) and (Monthly Revenue)

    What do I need to do to to get these totals to add up?

  • Allen Campbell

    Brian,

    I am checking into this for you.  Also anytime you have any problems you can enter a service ticket by emailing us at help@truckingoffice.com.  I have entered a service ticket for you on this problem.

    It would be nice if in the driver pay section we had the option to include tax deductions from the driver pay to make payroll and bookkeeping easier.  Any suggestions on how to do this with the current setup would be greatly appreciated.  Newbie trying to figure it out. :)

    when i put in the dates to pay the driver based on what date i put in the calender will sometime pull in loads that he got paid for last week is there anyway you can make the payment process where you can pay the drivers for just the load he did that week and is there anyway to store what he got on his last paycheck everytime i have to pay the driver i have to go back to make sure im not double paying him thanks

  • Juanita Ludke

    We pay our drivers on a per load basis - depending if a container is empty or not.  Is there a module for intermodal or not.

     

  • ANTONIO ROBINSON
