Routes

This section is intended for the monitoring of routes delivery. Routes are displayed in the table according to their filter state (active/planning/fulfilled) chosen in the navigation panel. Moreover, particular routes can be found using dynamic search (navigation panel). A search is implemented on the basis of current table data.

The active routes are:

  • Current day routes having any of its points visited.
  • The routes till the 1st delivery point of which remains the time indicated in 'Advance time' field of 'General' tab in 'Settings' section.

The planning routes are inactive routes of a current day or routes of the following day.

Information on the fulfilled routes is displayed for 24 hours, afterwards it is automatically moved to history. Besides, if it is necessary to send information on fulfilled routes to history without waiting 24 hours, you can do it manually (choose a corresponding route in the table and click 'Trash' button in the information block).

On the basis of the data on fulfilled routes stored in history, you can generate reports in the corresponding section.

Working with Routes

'Routes' section consists of the same interface elements described earlier: the table, the map, the information block, and the filter.

Active routes are shown in the table by default. Upon clicking the route's line, a route's fulfillment icon becomes active, a corresponding route is displayed on the map, and the map is centered and scaled in such a way that all delivery points get into vision field. Moreover, current data on the chosen route is shown in the information block.

Upon clicking the arrow (in front of the route) the list of delivery points (orders) in this route is expanded and the route is displayed on the map (route's fulfillment icon becomes active). The map is not centered and scaled. The expanded route shows all the orders arranged in the sequence of their delivery (orders = delivery points). The table contains visual elements used to determine a route's fulfillment state.

Route's point state:

missed
rejected
visited, status is not set
visited with advance, confirmed
visited with advance, rejected
Visited with delay, confirmed
Visited with delay, rejected

The line of the point towards which a unit moves is highlighted in green and marked correspondingly.

Note that 2 types of values are shown in such columns as 'Arrival time' and 'Mileage'. These are estimated and actual values. Estimated values are the approximate values calculated by the system. Upon a delivery point visiting estimated values are changed for actual ones. Actual values are shown in the table by a slightly brighter color.

To delete a route using the table, place a cursor over a route's line and click the appeared 'Trash' icon.

Information Block Usage

The same as in 'Planning' section, the logic of the information block can be divided into two components: showing general information and showing information on a particular route.

If no routes are chosen in the table, then information block shows general data on routes presented in the table (total number of routes and total number of orders in them).

Current data on a particular route is shown in the information block upon clicking the line of a corresponding route in the table. This data includes name of a unit assigned for the route implementation, number of orders in the route, estimated and actual route duration, estimated and actual mileage, driver name, etc. From here a fast transition to the 'Chat' section is available. In order to communicate with a driver, click a driver name.

Information on a chosen route can be exported in both XLSX and PDF formats, or printed. Moreover, a chosen route can be moved to history before its execution. The corresponding buttons are situated in the bottom of the information block.

Information block supports the possibility of working with route's delivery points (orders). Delivery point's data includes its address, estimated and actual arrival time, estimated and actual mileage. Some order values (name, cost, radius) can be edited. To do so, click 'Edit' button in the bottom of the information block. Note that using the information block an operator can set delivery points' statuses (corresponding buttons in the bottom of the information block).

Displaying a Route on the Map

A route chosen in the table is shown on the map. The system provides the possibility for visual comparison of planning and fulfilling routes. Therefore, a fulfilling route can be displayed on top of a planning one. A planning route is displayed by a wide transparent line, while a fulfilling one — by a thick non-transparent line. To enable the displaying of fulfilling routes, click the corresponding icon in the top right corner of the map. A fulfilling route is shown on the map until its complete fulfillment or until the end of a delivery interval. Route visualization color schemes can be set on 'General' tab of the 'Settings' section.

Upon choosing a route in the table, the map is centered and scaled in such a way that all delivery points of a route get into vision field. To center the map on a particular delivery point, click it in the table. A route fulfillment state can be recognized by the markers used on the map:

warehouse visited
warehouse not visited
delivery point (order) visited
delivery point (order) not visited
delivery point (order) visited (with delay/with advance/in time) and rejected
delivery point missed

Working with the map you can view information on elements (route points, units) by summoning their tooltips. To do so, click the necessary element on the map.

Attached Files

Upon setting an order's status (in Logistics Mobile), a courier has a possibility to supply a comment with an electronic signature or a file. An electronic signature is transferred to the web-version as a photo and shown along with other attached files by 'Paper clip' icon in the table, information block, and order's tooltip on the map.

To see a list of files attached, click the 'Paper clip' icon. The list contains names of files and download buttons. To preview a file, click its name; to download it, click the corresponding button.
