Team Driver


In LoadOps two drivers can form a team and also can work independently as solo drivers. The operational mode of a driver can be managed under Operations>Team driver. Learn more about creating a driver here.

Create a Team

To create a Team, go to Operations>Team Driver>+ Create Team>Select a Primary Driver>Select a Secondary Driver>Create.

Primary Driver: The primary driver is responsible for operating the equipment during the journey. LoadOps will use the HOS of the primary driver when calculating ETAs

Secondary Driver: The secondary driver is available for rest and support while the primary driver is on duty. The system also presents a list of all active drivers who are not currently assigned to a team.

Follow the guide below to see how to create a Team Driver. 

Team Actions:

Once a team driver is created, the user can perform the following actions:

Edit: Users can modify the primary and secondary drivers and Swap their roles by designating the primary driver as the secondary driver.

Assign/Unassign Trailer: Users have the option to assign a Trailer to the team driver by selecting from the list of available Trailers. They can also remove the assigned trailer from the Team Driver if needed.Screenshot 2023-09-06 191343

Assign/Unassign Tractor: Here, users have the option to assign a tractor to the team driver by choosing from the available tractors in the drop-down list. Additionally, users can also remove the assigned tractor from the Team Driver if needed.

Delete: Team driver can be deleted here.

Mark Inactive: You can mark a Team Driver Inactive here. 

Editing the driver in a single team (without inactivating and creating a new team) will cause the changes to be reflected on all past and current loads the team has worked on. 

Auto Assignment Toggle

The auto-assign toggle determines if the driver's assigned equipment will automatically pre-populate when a driver is assigned to a load. By default, the toggle is enabled. 

Auto Assign toggle enabled (default): The system will automatically assign the same tractor or trailer to the Team driver that the secondary driver had previously completed a load with.

Auto Assign toggle Disabled: The system will not automatically pre-populate the equipment when assigning a driver to a load. Only the driver will be assigned. 

Behavior after assigning a driver to a load
