Acceptance Report

What is it?

This report shows you tender acceptance performance for any carrier or group of carriers in your network. You can see how often they accept your tendered freight, reject it or let your tender expire.

coyote go premium acceptance report

When should you use it?

The acceptance report is most useful for evaluating your contracted carriers’ tender acceptance rate. However, it can also be used to focus on your spot freight, to give you a window into which carriers are participating most frequently and to help you determine if you want to pursue a contract rate with them in the future.

Pro Tip

If tender acceptance rate is one of your most important logistics KPIs, you’ll want to have a clear idea of the benchmark standard you expect the carriers in your network to hit.

This report is most valuable when used to see who is honoring their commitments to haul at a high level and who is not.

Load Detail Report

What is it?

The load detail report contains every piece of information about every shipment you move through the platform. These include:

  • Load date
  • Carrier
  • Whether it’s spot or contract
  • Number of stops
  • Total miles
  • Load progress (dispatched, delivered, etc.)
  • Mode
  • Equipment type
  • Freight volume
  • Freight weight
  • Origin and destination
  • Shipper and consignee names
  • Financial data

When should you use it?

This report can help you assess your actual shipping needs at a granular level. You can filter each data category to determine how many truckloads you move vs. LTL shipments, which of your lanes are getting the most traffic, and so on.

Pro Tip

The load detail report is most effective when pulled and analyzed with a regular cadence. Whether this means monthly, quarterly or something else for you, you’ll find the best results when you use it to assess changes over time that may prompt network rebalancing or optimization in the future.

Load Rate Detail (Accessorial) Report

What is it?

The load rate detail report is where you can really dig into your freight financials with precision. It contains an itemized cost report for each shipment you move that covers:

  • Linehaul
  • Fuel
  • Accessorials and additional charges

Note that this report displays costs in U.S. dollars only. Keep this in mind when using it to evaluate any cross-border shipments.

When should you use it?

The load rate detail report is your go-to tool when preparing transportation financial data for your company’s leadership. It can help you pinpoint the source of fluctuations in your spend, whether they’re due to macro rate cycles in the truckload market, fuel cost increases or some other factor.

Pro Tip

This report becomes even more powerful once you export it to Excel. By adding a lane column, you can determine costs on a lane-by-lane basis over any period of time. You can also filter it to help you calculate cost per pound, percentage of your total spend that’s going toward fuel, or any other slice of this thorough data set. Feel free to contact your onboarding team with any questions.

Carrier Scorecard

What is it?

A carrier scorecard provides your team a snapshot of a single carrier’s performance as it pertains to tender acceptance rates, on-time metrics and bounce data (when a carrier accepts your tender but is unable to complete a shipment due to mechanical failure, weather or another reason).

Each carrier scorecard includes both an executive summary with high-level performance rates highlighted and detailed breakdowns of whether performance benchmarks were hit for each load you’ve moved with them over any period of time.

When should you use it?

These reports can be used to monitor carriers’ performance in real time or as a tool for periodically checking in on their performance history (such as for a quarterly business review).

If you start to suspect from anecdotal data that a carrier is falling behind your targets for on-time performance or tender acceptance, you can quickly pull a carrier scorecard to see if that is indeed the case.

Pro Tip

The executive summary tab of each carrier scorecard contains a holistic score out of 100 that describes your carrier’s overall performance. This score is a weighted average of each of your transportation KPIs, and you can adjust their weights manually to place more importance on ones that your business prioritizes.

Carrier Network Scorecard

What is it?

This is basically a carrier scorecard expanded to the scale of your network. It contains the same capabilities for assigning a weighted performance score out of 100 to your network as the individual carrier scorecards and the same option to dig into metric-by-metric data in more detail.

When should you use it?

This report is most useful for a quick top-level view of your entire network. It can help you assess whether performance has dipped in a significant way that may prompt a more targeted investigation using one of the other reports at your disposal.

Pro Tip

This report can also be used to assess a subset of your network rather than its entirety. You can filter carriers operating in a specific region, servicing a specific facility, in a specific mode or any other grouping that provides you the insights you seek.

Load Service Report

What is it?

The load service report focuses on on-time performance metrics for your network. These include not only on-time pick-up and delivery data, but dwell time as well (the amount of time your carrier’s truck waited at a pick-up appointment before embarking on its route).

coyote go premium load service report

When should you use it?

You’re most likely to use this report if on-time performance is a high-priority KPI for your business. It is your quickest and most detailed look at which carriers are meeting your targets and which are not.

Pro Tip

This report is just as useful for evaluating your own performance as it is for that of the carriers in your network, and it’s particularly powerful when used in tandem with the load rate detail report.

If you see in the load rate detail report that you’re spending an unusually high amount on detention, the load service report can help you identify which of your facilities are most at fault and help you pinpoint necessary improvements to your own operational efficiency.

Load Tracking Report

What is it?

The load tracking report compiles tracking data for all your currently active shipments. It is a one-stop shop for viewing shipment locations (it pulls last known location data via EDI) and any tracking notes that have been left.

coyote go premium load tracking report

When should you use it?

Consult this report whenever you want to know the real-time scheduling demands of your network. You can see how many loads you have picking up at a facility in a given week, appointment times across your network, and anything else pertaining to scheduling and location.

Pro Tip

You don’t actually need to export this report to Excel to get the most out of it. You can simply navigate your report using the clickable arrows in the CoyoteGO Premium interface to see all the relevant tracking data at a glance.
