TORONTO, Ont.– Cube Route, a provider of on demand logistics services, today announced that it has added GPS tracking and out of area coverage to its service offering of vehicle management and information capture.
Available with any of Cube Route’s routing, tracking and planning services, Cube Route Mobile operates on any Java-based, GPS enabled wireless device such as a cell phone.
Now with GPS tracking capability, Cube Route enables real-time and accurate vehicle tracking via automated arrival and departure information capture, as well as service time calculations that are automatically submitted to the Cube Route platform.
By adding GPS tracking to Cube Route’s sophisticated routing, tracking and planning functionality, organizations using the on demand logistics service gain access to an accurate and real-time audit trail without the need for driver intervention. It also increases accuracy in scheduled delivery and pick up times, and improves driver productivity.
"Cube Route is the only provider to offer an integrated logistics management solution that supports both GPS and out of area coverage," said Jeff Murphy, Vice President of Operations at Cube Route. "These added features fill in the gaps that occur when drivers move out of wireless coverage areas and further streamline and simplify the vehicle tracking process. Having a more complete and consistent picture of global vehicle location, movement, speed and direction can translate into significant bottom line results and improved return on investment. With better visibility on driver movement and delivery status across the fleet, dispatchers, managers and support agents are able to effectively reduce operating costs and improve productivity."
By providing out of area coverage, Cube Route allows for ongoing tracking with no gaps in data capture when a phone is beyond the range of a wireless signal. Data is captured and then automatically uploaded to the Cube Route platform as soon as a wireless signal is available, providing complete field data capture including an accurate "bread crumb trail". This minimizes gaps in data collection from the field, ensures more accurate business analysis, and improves the quality and accuracy of operating reports. The data provided also enables managers to improve operational efficiencies by increasing stops per paid hour, as well as reducing miles driven, labor expenses and weekly vehicle expenses.
