Axele has introduced Teams and Terminals functionality for improved productivity and efficiency within its transportation management system (TMS). Support for team drivers keeps loads moving and allows carriers to stay on the road longer, while the Terminal feature helps larger carriers better manage regional bases.

Team drivers—two drivers assigned to a single truck—work together on the same load assignments. Hours of service (HoS) rules let one driver take their mandatory rest, while the other driver takes over the shift and keeps the load moving to the destination.

The Axele Teams feature allows dispatchers and trip planners to visualize drivers’ schedules. Seeing solo drivers and teams on a weekly Gantt chart ensures proper assignment of loads with no overlap. Axele TMS integrates HoS data from electronic logging devices (ELD), so dispatchers and schedulers can see the availability of all drivers and teams. Clear availability information enables better scheduling of the transport plan.

Other features include support to:

• Assign trucks and trailers to a solo driver or team

• Assign loads to a solo driver or team

• Assign teams to carry the entire load or split loads

• Pay drivers when they drive as a team, splitting the miles earned and paying according to their individual rates and payment terms.

The Terminals feature supports regional home bases, or terminals, in a carrier’s geographic footprint. Each terminal can have its own set of drivers, trucks, and trailers. Axele lets carriers create individual terminal profiles with company, drivers, tractors, trailers, DOT#, MC#, and more. Once the planner establishes a terminal, the carrier can assign loads by terminal, track activity by terminal, pay drivers by terminal, monitor invoices by terminal, and see trends or analytics by terminal.
