Tracking Your Vehicles

One of the most useful tools in Depot is the ability to monitor and track each vehicle. A dispatcher has the ability see the route a driver is using and what events are occurring during a trip. You are in contact with a driver through Depot's messaging so you can send a driver to a new destination, abort a trip, help a driver avoid traffic issues by rerouting through a different area, or find a truckstop.

Locate a Vehicle on the Map

1. Click the Activity link and search for a vehicle. 
2.

To search, from the vehicle list, enter a vehicle name in Search (useful for large fleets where many vehicles are listed on the map) and click in the vehicle name field; or click a vehicle name on the map.

The map automatically relocates to the vehicle location and opens a detail callout for the specific vehicle.
