Creating New Fleet Vehicles on the Route4Me Web Platform
With Route4Me’s dynamic routing software, 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. Moreover, with Route4Me’s advanced account-level permissions management, you are able to adjust the visibility of your entire fleet for your team members with just a touch of the button, allowing them to view and edit vehicles, only view vehicles without editing, and so on (learn more). For more convenience, if you are already using the services of a particular telematics vendor, Route4Me enables you to frictionlessly import vehicles from any preferred telematics vendor into your Route4Me account (learn how) and then modify the details of the imported vehicles, assign them to routes, track their fuel expenses, and more.
To create a new vehicle in your Route4Me fleet, first, go to “Vehicles” from the navigation menu to open the list of all vehicles associated with your Route4Me account and then click on the “Create New Vehicle” button accordingly.
