Understanding Driver Instructions and Stop Notes


When booking a shipment through FreightPath, you have the opportunity to leave notes directly to your driver if you need to provide specific instructions. This eliminates unnecessary phone calls, emails, and wasted time.


How to Input Driver Instructions and Stop Notes

Within each stop, there is a field named Driver Notes where you can list the instructions you'd like the driver to receive. This option is available for every location added into the shipment. This information is included on the Load Tender or Bill of Lading. The driver notes are especially useful for situations where there are specifications that the driver would otherwise not be aware of.

Where can my drivers view these instructions?

Your driver will see the instructions within the driver app. Once they've clicked on the location, there will be a short screen of information including their instructions and stop notes.
