1. New Office Manager:

We welcome on board Sally Smith as our Office Manager. Sally, like us, comes from a rural background and has spent many a day in the sale-yards up north where she was working as an Office administrator. You will be hearing from Sally from time to time.

  1. MyTrucking mobile app:
    Our developer is working very hard on getting our mobile app to the stage where we can release it to you. In fact we are in the real “testing” stage at the moment. These things do take time to test & get right. This mobile app will be usable on both android and apple phones & tablets.
    The first release of this app will enable drivers to update their job from their phone with the exact tally and weight, plus consignment number & any other comments if required.This is a real exciting step for us and our clients!

    3. Reports:
    Just a reminder about the reports that can be easily produced in MyTrucking.
    – Invoice report: NEW
    – Works Buyer report
    – Charged to report
    – Income by Truck report
    – Destination report
    – Origin report
    Go to REPORTS section on your menu bar. If you have any questions about these reports, please dont hesitate to ask us: info@mytrucking.co.nz

    4. Autopricing:
    It has come to our attention of late, that not all our users know about one of the special features of MyTrucking which is AUTOPRICING.
    Please go to: MY ACCOUNT – PRODUCTS & under method select USE LAST CHARGED RATE.
    Therefore the last charged rate will show up when you load a job for that particular product with same origin & destination. This is a huge time saver when it comes to pricing!
