Cube Route has added GPS tracking and out-of-area coverage to its services. Offered 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. With the addition of GPS tracking, 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.
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.” The data 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.
