TripPak Express Document Scanning Service: A Trucker's Review
The service physically moved the hard copies of the trip paperwork that were placed in specially marked envelopes and dropped in the drop boxes.
Then over time, technology progressed to the point that instead of having to physically transport the trip paperwork, images of each sheet could be sent electronically.
Enter in the age of "document scanning services."
Preparing to Scan
To do the scanning, Mike's trucking company provided him (and each of their drivers) with a company-specific pad of cover sheets so that when the paperwork was scanned in, the information would be sent electronically to them.
Document Scanning Service
After the Scan
After a trip's batch of paperwork was scanned, Mike stored the batch in his aluminum forms holder for a number of weeks. He did this so that he would have the paperwork with him in case the company needed for him to re-scan it. After about two months, he removed older paperwork batches to make room for newer ones.
He could also refer to batches of scanned documents to make sure that he got paid for everything associated with the load on his weekly settlement sheet (especially purchases that were to be reimbursed).
Mike's at-that-time trucking company usually paid the drivers on the basis of the scanned paperwork. As long as the document scanning service was used before the deadline for the week, he could usually expect to be paid for that trip that week.
By processing paperwork from trips in a timely manner, Mike could expect timely payment for his work in delivering the load that the paperwork represented.
Perhaps you have had times in your career when payment you anticipated did not arrive when you expected it and you had to shuffle around some financial obligations. If this has happened to you, you know that this can create stress for drivers.
Mike highly recommends TripPak Express document scanning service. You can learn more about this service -- and others offered by the company -- on their website.
Note: Even though it sounds the same, the spelling of the name of the service is neither "Trip Pak Express" nor "Trip Pack Express" but "TripPak Express" (where the words are together and no "c" appears in the name).
