Trucking & Intermodal
Today’s trucking companies must operate in an ever-increasing environment of regulations. Keeping equipment in service – and managing CSA scores – requires that preventive maintenance and inspections are performed on time. Electronic tracking of maintenance and compliance by company/shop drives the desired results.
Since 1979, Dossier Systems has helped trucking companies improve compliance while reducing paperwork. Dossier has proven to be the comprehensive management tool that produces the results fleets need to control costs and reduce downtime. Our comprehensive financial and maintenance integration with McLeod Software delivers a complete trucking management solution.

Dossier has been a real asset for us to transform our shop from a manual, handwritten, paper intensive process to an online, live, automated system. It has allowed us the opportunity to see activity at multiple shops at the same time and stay current with work being performed all over the country. We have been pleased with the transition to Dossier and are enthusiastic to continue to see the reporting and automation advancements!

We are a new customer with Dossier Systems and straight out of the short chute it has given the “Leading Truckload Carrier” the edge to keep us at the front and in position to strike for the win in today’s ever challenging trucking world!

For over 60 years, Sumter Transport has been the leader in innovative, non-traditional approaches to waste management and transportation. To stay the leader in this type of environment takes innovative ideas in maintenance management. Sumter Transport welcomed the Dossier maintenance program to manage our on-site and satellite maintenance needs. Through our partnership with Dossier Systems, STC has been able to manage both on-site and satellite locations maintenance needs, equipment PM’s, multi inventories, warranties, and reporting needs from corporate to service. Having the Dossier system interfaced with our McLeod Loadmaster system means that both systems have up-to-date data, and it eliminates double-entry time and errors, which increases efficiency. Communication between Dossier and STC has been one of the key reasons for the great success.
As an interstate freight carrier, we have many issues and concerns to deal with day in and day out. The company fleet requires plenty of attention and each truck and trailer has numerous items that need our attention, including preventative maintenance, license plates, inspections, tire replacement, and in some unfortunate occasions, accident repairs. Dossier advises whenever preventative services are needed and this helps the shop to stay on top of all needed repairs. Also, proper inspections will be notated to keep equipment compliant. Overall, Dossier keeps us informed of what needs to be done to our equipment before it becomes a problem. Our inventory had been an issue for years. With Dossier, we are able to manage the inventory easily since we know how many parts are in stock and notified when reorder levels are reached. We also get to review the pricing and quantities on previously purchased parts from vendors, which allows us to negotiate lower prices. Dossier also enables us to analyze spending on vendors, repairs on specific units (both truck and trailers), and labor by type of repair and for each mechanic. In addition, we have the ability to track fuel and tire efficiencies. This is essential to our operation and has really been a big key to our cost reductions. Dossier has made it easier and less complicated for us to manage our shop. We know it has helped us perform our job better with less stress. The Dossier interface to our McLeod system transfers all maintenance and financial data automatically, so we can stay focused on keeping the fleet running. The more we learn about what we can do with Dossier, the more thankful we are that we have the program.
New World Van Lines maintains a world class fleet to service the needs of our customers. We use Dossier to monitor, control and manage all aspects of our fleet. Some of the areas that Dossier has improved New World’s fleet operations include fuel, cost per mile, service intervals, parts usage and inventories, mechanic productivity and fleet efficiencies.
