How FX Trucking Works

  • FX Trucking manages the routing of trucks to complete pick up and drop off of hauled materials.

  • FX Trucking utilizes Routes to deliver Ticket Items identified with a Hauling Charge Type in the related Catalog Item record

  • Trucks are Equipment items with a Record Type of vehicle.

  • Drivers are Contacts with the Is Driver option selected.

  • Drivers pick up and drop off to Locations. Admins create Locations.

  • Dispatchers use the Route Dispatch tab in FieldFX Back Office to manage Routes and assign routes to drivers and trucks.

  • Dispatchers can create new Routes (with their associated Tickets and Jobs) from the Route Dispatch screen.

  • Drivers use the forthcoming FX Trucking Mobile App to receive their assigned routes and track their work from starting the route, picking up items, dropping off items, and managing any additional charges.
