Default Did You Know That You Can TransFlo From Your Home Computer?

My 17 year old son figured out how for me. Makes it so much nicer to just come home after last delivery, instead of having to find a truckstop on the way home, in order to get paid promptly for the load.

Here's a link to set it up:

Yep. Been scanning and sending paperwork with my computer at home via TransFlo for a few years now. Carriers that are using TransFlo usually will provide their people with the method to do this from home.

That Pegasus crapware I do not want on my PC. It has a service that runs in the background all the time.

I just scan my docs and convert them to Monochrome CCITT Group4 .tif (transflo won't accept another type of tif) with ZAN Image Printer (very useful software - highly recommended) and email to ****@e-transflo.com (****being your company's four letter code with transflo). They automatically email you right back with a received confirmation.

I been using a scanner and then attaching the pages to an email and sending it to transflo. No need for software on the computer and I get immediate email confirmation that batch received successfully. I just print that out and staple it to the load paperwork and file away. I do use the truckstops whenever I have some paperwork and am going to stop in anyway. Since I go home each weekend, a lot of times just take the paperwork home and have an adult beverage and scan the stuff in.

And some want to return to the old days of trucking. Pay phones, snail mail, etc.

we have a very hi-tech method, we put the bills in a company envelope and when we go to the yard, we put the envelope in the basket, then the office manager takes the envelopes out of the basket and inputs the information so we get paid on Friday for everything we did up until last Saturday

That works great if you get by the yard. I might get thru the company a couple of times a month. And that is even with doing primarily regional runs and home each weekend. Transflo is a real cool deal in my case.
