Driver Paysuite is a web, Software as a Service(SaaS), application that handles all of your driver’s pay. It calculates and documents each driver’s activities both non-driving and driving. Truck drivers and other drivers have unique and complex activities that are used to calculate their pay. Each driver through their experience and contract may require both individual and unique ways in how they are paid. Each component based drive time, mileage, work time and other units of work can be constructed to represent exactly how a driver is paid. You can also create many pay types each of which contains its own unique process of payment for different types of drivers and different contracts or employee types.
Driver Paysuite creates reports and allows managers and drivers to see the calculations and give them confidence that they are being paid properly and fairly. Dispute resolution is the strength of this service and can eliminate disagreements that can be harmful to your business This may be the most flexible Driver Pay package on the market and will satisfy drivers and shippers reducing conflict while building trust.
Driver Paysuite will easily integrate with your company wide payroll system. It uses industry standard web services integration and supports direct integration for older systems or easy manual upload to allow the entire driver pay process to be automated and verifiable. It will import from both On Board systems as well as routing packages. Since we also offer the ISuite(TM) routing system it integrates seamlessly with little integration efforts. Many popular routing systems are also supported.

This is the first in a series of articles about optimization in the supply chain. The goal of this series is to stimulate discussion and try to arrive at a clean and distinct definition of what it means in the context of the many activities that occur in supply chain work and projects.
I struggled for years with explaining and differentiating solutions and services provided by many organizations. The term optimization is frequently used in supply chain discussions both in marketing communication and in project descriptions and articles about them. Recently some people are rightly questioning exactly what is optimization. More…
Logistics Map just got better. The open source website, designed to aid logistics professionals and consultants in project planning, released a few additions to the logistic support site.
The main feature appended is the ability to export the geodata uploaded. The final file will contain the DC(distribution center) at the top but will keep other locations’ sequence. The arrangement of the location will be taken from the original file uploaded. This file can now be used as a guide or recycled for future use.
In addition to location types that can be assigned to locations which are DC and Delivery; Pickup and Return are now being supported by the geocoder.
For suggestions and feature requests the site has a forum that is open to the public.
One thing that really puzzles me is the almost static nature of the process between shipper and customer. In retail or food-service and grocery deliveries, some customers receiving goods end up with a very narrow (30 mins or 1 hour) delivery window. This is often a long term arrangement and forces the shipper to hammer out routes to accommodate a client. In isolation this doesn’t seem unreasonable but it really is akin to stepping outside looking at your street and surmising that the earth is flat. It is a local view and is based upon a moment in time that rarely exists (only for perhaps a month or even less). Although it is understandable for customer planning purposes that they must plan labor, activity and take other factors into play. It is often the case that the customer feels they have all the say and it seems reasonable to them (the world is flat). I believe that our problem can be solved by allowing these customers to see the bigger picture and by picture, I mean money. Go ahead give them some money.
Here is an excerpt from one of my blog posts. It talks to delivering orders to customers using a fleet and how using rule of thumb for ease of use can cost money. More…
