Automated Vehicle Locator debuts
May 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Descartes Systems Group is introducing its latest intelligent Automated Vehicle Locator (AVL) wireless services.
Available on the Descartes Global Logistics Network, AVL services integrate efficient on-demand delivery route planning and execution with web-based tracking of vehicles via global positioning satellites (GPS). The AVL services extend visibility to fleets in the field and enable delivery route changes on-the-fly when exceptions occur. Descartes AVL is available on a variety of mobile devices and wireless networks, and integrates with many back-office software applications.
Descartes AVL provides field data updates and tracking in real-time, from basic GPS coordinates to more complex black-box engine diagnostics. With the depth of data provided, operators can also measure delivery performance against planned routes, and notify dispatch and/or customer service operations of changes made during the delivery cycle. Field workers also have visibility into relevant shipment data to keep up-to-date on delivery status to more effectively coordinate arrival times.
