Booking by a user without an account

Here are the instructions for your contractor to follow in order to make a booking. If the user experiences any difficulties, you can send them the link to this page.

Once you have created a time slot and made it available to a user outside the Platform - they will receive an e-mail from us (at the address provided by them) with the subject: Time slot created.

On the booking page, the Carrier can choose one of the available booking times. He can also add the vehicle (mandatory) and driver (optional) details. In order to make a booking, one will also need to accept the Regulations of the Dock Scheduler.

If your contractor has not received the e-mail, ask them to check the SPAM folder in their mailbox.

When your booking is created, you will receive another confirmation email with all the necessary information.
