Once you have accepted a load in our system your photo is displayed to the Shipper and the MustDeliver Team.

If it is more than 72 hours from the pick up, tap the load under YOUR LOADS on the Main page and then tap CANCEL ASSIGNMENT. If it is within 72 hours, please email or call 1 833 933 1833.

Please alert the MustDeliver Team of the situation as soon as you possible. This can be done directly or through the Messaging feature of the app. Once a load is in transit, the app automatically calculates ETA and will alert the MustDeliver Team and Shipper (depending on the shipper’s preference) if the delivery will be delayed. However, alerting MustDeliver Team yourself is also recommended.

Driver App FAQs

You can access your communication preferences within the MustDeliver app by tapping on the Profile icon Profile Icon to view the Profile Overview page. Tap the PROFILE INFO button. Scroll down to the COMMUNICATION PREFERENCES section. See screenshots below.

If you no longer want to receive notifications (text or email) when a new load is available check the "Do not alert me about new loads" box.

If you leave this box unchecked, you can set the "Alert me via:" drop down to specify you'd like new available load notifications to be received via text only, email only, or both email and text.

Note: the "Alert me via:" notification setting also would affect the notifications you would receive if you were to be awarded and hauled a MustDeliver load. You cannot opt out of notifications sent for an awarded load.

It’s important to update the status of your active load at the appropriate time so that the shipper can track the progress and status of the load. Once you have been booked a load through the app it will be listed on your Dashboard under YOUR LOADS with the status of: BOOKED. You will need to progress the load through the following statuses within the app as they occur. In order, they are:


Here's an example. I've just arrived at the pick up location. To update the status of the load to DRIVER AT PICK UP, from your DASHBOARDDashboard Icon under YOUR LOADS tap on the active load and then tap the blue MARK AS AT PICK UP button. Tap YES to confirm you've arrived at the pickup location. Back on your Dashboard you'll see that the load status has been updated to DRIVER AT PICKUP.

You should use this same process, continuing to update the status of the load as you progress to delivery. For more help, see the following resources:

MustDeliver will only show you available loads that match your truck type and equipment. You set your truck type during initial registration. Current truck type options are 53' Dry Van, Reefer, Flatbed, 26' Box Truck, Car Hauling and Other specialty. Once your truck type is set we won’t notify you of or show you available loads that require equipment you don’t have. For example, if you have set your truck type to 53' Dry Van you will not be notified about or see available loads that require a Reefer.

To update your truck type, tap on the Profile icon Profile Icon to view the Profile Overview page in the app. Tap TRUCK INFO and select the appropriate truck type.

Below your Truck/trailer type on the TRUCK INFO page you should also specify what additional equipment items you have by tapping the item to toggle it "on". The additional equipment choices are currently Pallet Jack, Load Bards, Blankets, Ramp. Again, we will not notify you of or show you available loads that require additional equipment that you don't have.

MustDeliver uses your location to track the progress of in transit MustDeliver loads that you are hauling. We notify the shipper of the load’s progress towards delivery. We also use your location when you search for available loads so that loads close to your current location are sorted at the top of the Available Loads list.

For more information on load tracking and automatic updates see:

The bill of lading is available on the app from the Load Details page once the freight has been loaded (i.e., you have updated load status to "LOADED"). On your DASHBOARD, tap the active load under YOUR LOADS and then tap VIEW BILL OF LADING. From the BOL page you can choose to email and/or text the bill of lading to an individual. We suggest you also ask for a hard copy of the bill of lading from the shipper.

Note that MustDeliver is just starting out and so don't have a large volume of loads available on the platform. It may be that we don't have any loads that match your equipment type in our area. That being said, MustDeliver is working hard to sign up new shippers in order to get loads on the platform. We'd encourage you to keep checking back as we continue to grow.
