If you are a carrier, allocating a vehicle to a job confirms that you have accepted the job and are available to pick it up for delivery.
If you don't know the exact vehicle that will be used for the job, you can enter your company's initials and update the job with the individual vehicle later.

Assigning carriers and confirming job dispatch can be automatically updated from your business' Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. This is done by Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between your ERP system and eCargo.
