Logistics is a multifunctional program created to implement control over all the working stages of a courier delivery service.

Logistics consists of two applications: web and mobile one. The web application is intended to be used by an operator. The web part is developed to manage working processes such as orders' creation and distribution between units, routes planning and optimization, as well as monitoring and coordination of orders' delivery. The mobile application is intended to be used by couriers. It is available on both smartphones and tablets (Android, iOS). The mobile part is developed to inform a courier on job details: orders attached, their sequence, and optimized delivery routes. Moreover, using the mobile application a courier notifies an operator on a progress of orders delivery (confirmation/rejection), leaves comments regarding it, attaches photos, and uses chat to communicate with an operator.

For Logistics to work in Wialon Local you need the following:

Screen package for Debian
It is installed using the command 'apt-get install screen'.

Separate DNS
Create a separate DNS and route it to the external IP of the server. Indicate this DNS with the type 'Logistics' in the site settings in the administration system.

The configuration of Logistics in CMS is done like that of other apps. In the 'URL' field you need to indicate the created DNS.

Access rights
To work with orders, it is necessary to possess the rights 'View orders' and 'Create, edit, and delete orders' towards a resource and 'Use unit in jobs, notifications, routes, retranslators' towards units.

Required services
In order the application to work correctly, the 'Orders' service has to be activated in the user's billing plan or account.

Correct work of the application
For the data to be correctly passed from the web application to the mobile one, it is necessary to create drivers, warehouses, and orders in the same resource. To do so, create a driver in the monitoring system and in the web application's settings on 'General' tab choose a resource of the driver created.

To create a route, Gurtam Maps are required. Select Gurtam Maps as the map source in the Administration panel and WebGis as the map provider in the application settings in the General tab to be able to use the maps.

Measurement system
The measurement system depends on the user's settings.
