What is a Load Type?
The Load Type is what dictates the duration of an appointment.
Before creating a Load Type, it is important to think about how long your appointments usually take and the best way to categorize them into groups.
Here are a few common examples we see our clients use to determine the duration of the appointment:
- Equipment Type: Van, Dry, Reefer, Bulk, Flatbed, Tanker, LTL
- Pallet Count
- Carton Count
For example, LTL appointments tend only to take 15 minutes, but FTL might take 60 minutes.
We highly recommend starting with only a couple of Load Types initially and adding to the list at a later date.
