With Route4Me, you can build an entire fleet of cars, vans, trucks, trailers, semis, or heavy equipment and then effortlessly and efficiently manage, organize, and coordinate them all from one platform. Route4Me provides flexible vehicle settings that allow you to design detailed vehicle descriptions that can best accommodate the particular needs of your business or unique business model. By assigning vehicles to routes, you can easily track how much fuel has been consumed by each assigned vehicle, let drivers know which vehicle they are required to use for completing a particular route, and so on. Moreover, with Route4Me’s detailed vehicle descriptions and advanced team management tools, regardless of the size of your vehicle fleet and the number of members in your team, you can effortlessly coordinate the assignment of hundreds of different members and vehicles to hundreds of thousands of different routes.
