One of the core processes of any transportation business is allocating jobs to drivers.
Whether you run a courier, private vehicle hire service, do home removals or deliver food your business will be more effective with a fast and simple way to give accurate details of each new job to your staff.
With the release of the TransitTeam add-on for TransitQuote Pro we aim to make this process more efficient for companies that use a WordPress website to accept online orders for delivery or transportation services.

New Year’s day is a special time. The frenzy of pre-holiday activity is over. The celebrations are winding down. This is the perfect time to take stock of the past year and consider all the possibilities the next year will bring.
2018 was an exciting year here at TransitQuote. We have taken great strides towards our goal of making TranistQuote Pro the fastest way to set up an automated online quote, ordering and payment system for the transportation industry.
The latest release of TransitQuote Pro transportation quote calculator includes a number of small but important improvements based on customer feedback.
Area Of Business Restrictions
If your transportation or delivery business operates in a specific geographical area such as a city or district, you can now set up a radius from your center of business operations and prevent job requests for customers from outside of this area.
We have always had a geographical restriction in place for the list of addresses that appear in the drop down addresspicker using Google’s “location biasing” which prioritizes nearby addresses over those far from your business area.
This update will enforce the restriction so no addresses can be entered if they are outside of the radius you specify.
To enable the radius search limit:
Make sure you have a Business Location entered in the Map Options dashboard tab.
Enter a radius in kilometers in the Search Radius option in the Map Options dashboard tab.
After saving the settings page you will see a preview of the area on the settings page map so you can confirm the area is correct.
Improved Compatibility with WooCommerce Customer Account Login
We started using WooCommerce as a payment gateway at the beginning of this year and have had a lot of great feedback on the additional flexibility it provides.
WooCommerce is an incredible ecommerce tool with many useful features other than just processing payments for your delivery company.
WooCommerce includes a customer login feature, where customers can log in to view their orders and invoices. Until now TransitQuote was not compatible with the option to allow customers to log in on the checkout page.
In TransitQuote Pro version 4.2.8 we have fixed this problem so if you use the customer account feature in WooCommerce you can give your customers the option to login as a returning customer on your website.
