Order Entry

Critical to the proper dispatching of work orders, the DMS Order Entry Module streamlines order entry in 3 ways.

  • Allows drayage carriers to enter information accurately and efficiently, as well as accept them electronically from customers
  • Users can add new customers and shipping addresses on the fly, without leaving the module
  • Track per diem and demurrage tariffs/charges levied on containers to ensure timely return to their steamship lines


Our pro-active DMS Dispatch Module allows hundreds of users to prioritize drivers and trips in real-time, by documenting events and charges - paving the way to accurate invoices and driver settlements.
  • Over 20 different sort and filter criteria
  • Over 25 fields of information, including Last Free Day at the port and terminals
  • Easily enables dispatchers to capture and record accessorials as the occur

Accounts Receivable

Combined with our Dispatch Module, accounts receivable invoicing becomes a one-step operation. DMS Accounts Receivable Module is Comprised of 4 Sub-modules: Invoicing, Debit Memos, Credit Memos and Cash Receipts.

Inside each customer profile, invoicing options are selected based on reference numbers, time frequency and container status. A typical drayage carrier can serve up to 6 different types of customers: steamship lines, freight forwarders, customs brokers, importers, exporters and retailers.

Due to the customized setup, our drayage customers can ensure timely receipts for their invoices, listing container numbers, trip details, accessorial charges and a detachable stub to be submitted with payments.


Combined with our Order Entry and Dispatch Modules, settlements can be automatically generated for the entire fleet in one keystroke.

DMS Driver Settlement Module creates payments to owner operators for the trips completed in a week, collecting all bills of ladings for each driver and automatically calculates deductions based on driver profiles. Automated deductions account for loans, escrows, cash advances, and fuel.
