Accurate Cost Estimates – Tips For Axon Users

Calculate Mileage & CostingA customer has asked you to prepare a quote for a cross-country shipment. It’s a big job and you want to make sure that you’re adequately compensated.

The Calculate Mileage and Costing screen will help you estimate route cost and potential revenue.

The left-hand side of the screen helps you calculate the mileage between two or more locations. If you’re using a mileage program (e.g. PC*Miler), it will calculate the total mileage for you.

The right-hand side of the screen displays the average cost per mileage based on the finalized equipment statements for the last two months for each of your pieces of Equipment.

Now that you have the total mileage and the average cost per mileage for your tractors, you can work out the shipment’s potential revenue based on either an estimated rate per mileage or an estimated total billing amount.

The screen also displays the last known location for each tractor so you’ll know which one is best placed to pick up the load.
