Driver Settlement - Record Payments

With our new Driver Settlement (Beta) feature, you can record payments for all of the bills generated on a driver settlement statement at one time. Payments can be done right from the Driver Settlement page or from the manifests themselves.

How it works:

Because a driver settlement statement is a collection of the manifests your driver has completed, this feature lets you mark payments for the consolidated bills on a statement instead of having to record payments for each driver bill separately.

Coming soon!

Export driver settlement bills to your accounting software like QuickBooks Online or Xero with one click and have payment records synced back into Rose Rocket automatically. Keep an eye out for this update in a future release.

Availability

Driver Settlement is currently in Beta, which means that we are continuously adding more functionality and addressing feedback from customers using this feature before we release it to everyone. If you want to turn driver settlement on for your organization, reach out to us at [email protected]

🛣 Advanced Routing

Work with greater accuracy using our new Advanced Routing feature. Using a combination of best-in-class integrations with PC Miler and Trimble, Rose Rocket's Advanced Routing feature calculates the accurate truck routes, mileage, and live ETA on your manifests to save you time and money. Rose Rocket then uses this information to calculate Hours of Service cycles and pay statements for your drivers, so you don't have to spend time on manual calculations.

Here's what you can do with it:

  • Per Mile Order Rating: Orders are rated per mile based on calculated truck mileage to create accurate quotes for your customers. 
  • Driver Pay Per Mile: Mileage estimates enable automatic per mile driver pay, reducing the need for manual mileage override.
  • Planned HOS: See the likely truck route on a map optimized for planned HOS, equipment, single and multi-stop, tolls, and cross border preferences.
  • Live ETA: Accurate ETA calculations that are updated hourly to provide your customers with reliable and accurate service.

Advanced Routing is an add-on feature, available to your organization at an additional cost. To get this feature or learn more about it, reach out to [email protected]

You can also register for our Advanced Routing webinar here on September 22nd at 3 pm to learn more about how Advanced Routing works on Rose Rocket.

Setting it Up

Our Advanced Routing feature uses integrations with PC Miler and Trimble. Here's how you set them up:

PC Miler - Integration Setup

    On the Integrations page, go to the PC Miler tab to enable the integration. Next, head over to the Settings page. In the Customize Orders section, turn the ‘Order Details - Mileage’ to ON. From here, go to the Customers page to turn the “Rating Mileage’ toggle to ON and choose the Route and Data settings for your customer. Next, create a per mile tariff for your customer to pull in rates based on truck miles.

Trimble - Integration Setup

On the Integrations page, go to the Trimble tab to enable the integration. Use the tabs to set your Routing, Planned HOS, and Live ETA settings. Don't worry, your routing settings can be edited on a manifest at any time.

Features

🛣 Per Mile Order Rating

Get accurate per mile rates for your orders based on commercial truck routes optimized for toll, highway, cross border preferences.

How it works:

Customize routing preferences at the customer level based on time and cost preferences. Choose between Practical, Shortest, or Fastest routes for each trip.

💵 Driver Pay Per Mile

Exact pay per mile, every time. Driver pay is calculated using the exact mileage recorded by Trimble, so you never have to manually adjust driver pay statements again.

How it works:

Set up your drivers to be paid ‘per mile’. Manifest routes, drive time, and mileage is automatically calculated by Trimble, which flows onto your driver pay statements using the exact truck miles.

🚦 Planned Hours of Service (HOS)

Optimize for compliance. Plan truck routes according to your driver’s Hours of Service requirements with greater accuracy.

How it works:

HOS breaks and stop locations are added directly on a manifest, so you know the status of your drivers. See the accurate length of a manifest on our new Driver Calendar to help you plan Driver Shifts.

⏰ Live ETA

Have visibility into your freight with hourly ETA updates to help you manage your shipments and provide great customer service.

How it works:

ETAs are calculated every hour based on the driver's last known location. See both the predicted ETA and planned ETA on a manifest, and search for manifests that are trending late or early.

Share the live ETA with your customers using the Customer Portal or using e-Tracking links.

🔖 Driver Tags

Organize your team better using driver tags. Tags let you categorize drivers by characteristics and preferences like geography, load types, and tasks, so CSRs and dispatchers can plan more efficiently.

Once a tag is added to your driver profile, it will appear on the manifest list and manifest details page.

You can filter by driver tags in the following places:

  • Orders list
  • Manifests list
  • Legs list
  • Driver Calendar

How it works

Available in Production: Tuesday, August 31st

Order Details - Privacy Settings

We understand that some order information is private, and you may want to exclude it from documents that you share outside of your company. Using our new privacy settings, you can choose which order information can be seen by your internal team, partners, and customers.

Here's how it works:

Order details will default to be Visible to Customers and Partners. If an Order field has been ​customized the Label settings, it will default to be Visible to Customers. All default settings can be overridden as shown in the above video.

  • Visible to Customers and Partners: No change to what happens today. Order details will be sent on Rate Confirmations, BOLs, and to Customer Portal and Partner App.
  • Visible to Customers Only: Order details will not be included on the Rate Confirmation PDF when dispatching to partners, but visible on the BOL and to customers using Customer Portal.
  • Visible to Partners Only: Order details are shared on the Rate Confirmations sent to your partners, but is not included in the Customer Portal or the BOL.
  • Internal: Order details are only visible to your internal team. These are not shared on the BOLs, Rate Confirmations, Customer Portal or Partner App.
