Trip Management

Overview of Trip Management in LoadOps


Trips are used to represent expenses & movement in LoadOps. Trips are created automatically by the system when a load is added- Each trip will have its own trip ID, and this trip ID will match the corresponding Load ID. 

A driver trip plan is generated by Loadops whenever a driver is assigned to a load. Please go to: Driver Trip Plan to learn more.

Trip Panel

All trips can be found under the Loads>Trips section. By selecting a trip, you can access the Trip panel, which consists of two tabs: Route and Finance.


The routes tab provides a comprehensive display of all the stops included in the trip. It also provides detailed information about the various trips that can be used to transport the shipments.

You can split a trip by adding relay stops, creating additional trip stops, assigning trips to drivers or assets, or re-ordering, just like you would with loads.

The finance tab provides an overview of the load invoices and trip expenses. Invoices are separated on a per-load basis, and trip expenses can be expanded and modified here.

Trips Statuses

If the status of a load/trip is updated by a user, the status of the corresponding trip/load will be updated by LoadOps to match. 

The table below describes load & trip statuses. The last two columns indicate if a status is available for a load or a trip.
