Import Data

Axele allows you to import your data from an Excel file. Currently, we accept XLS and XLSX file types.

Here are the categories you can import:

  1. Customers (shippers and brokers)
  2. Locations (pickups and drop-offs)
  3. Drivers
  4. Tractors
  5. Trailers
  6. Loads
  7. Expenses (fuel and tolls) – please make sure that the names of drivers, tractors, and trailers match the corresponding name in your data file

You can also import the data from the individual pages of Customers, Locations, Drivers, Tractors, Trailers, Loads, and Expenses using the Import Data button on the top right of each page.

You can import all your data directly from the Quick Setup Guide section, or within each of these pages within Axele. To quickly get to the guide, click the question mark at the top right of Axele and click Quick Setup Guide.


Once you are there, click the Import button.
