Getting Started with the Haulage Operations Platform (HOP)

Built with hauliers at its heart, Haulio’s Haulage Operations Platform (HOP) is an end-to-end digital tool for you to manage all your trucking jobs.

Communicate and manage all your jobs, fleet, drivers and customers in one place.

In this guide, we will cover 4 main components:
  1. Take jobs from Haulio’s Job Pool to fill up your operational gaps.
  2. Manage jobs taken from Haulio’s Job Pool.
  3. Sublet jobs to Haulio’s haulier partners.
  4. Set up partnerships with your customers and haulier vendors to receive or sublet jobs directly, instead of through the Haulio job pool.

For a more in-depth guide on the product, reach out to us via productteam@haulio.io and we’ll be glad to assist!
