Edit Vehicles – Manage and Update Vehicle Profile Parameters
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.
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 modify the details of your fleet vehicles, first, go to “Vehicles” from the navigation menu to open the list of all vehicles associated with your Route4Me account.
To learn more about fleet visibility permissions and the Route4Me Global Vehicles List, visit this page.
Next, you can search for vehicles by their alias, license plate number, make, VIN (vehicle identification number), and any other parameters that are associated with the searched vehicles. To edit the preferred vehicle, click on the “Edit” button next to this vehicle.
In the “Vehicle Information” section, you can modify the vehicle’s alias, license plate number, make, and model.
After that, you can change the vehicle’s VIN (vehicle identification number), select another vehicle type and manufacturing year. To make the vehicle available for assigning to routes, check the “Active” box accordingly (learn more).
In the “Registration Information” section, you can change the country and the state in which the vehicle was registered, as well as the year when the vehicle was purchased.
In the “Fuel” section, you can update the vehicle’s fuel type, as well as the vehicle’s fuel consumption parameters.
To finish and apply all changes, click on the “Save Vehicle” button at the bottom of the vehicle’s page. Once the vehicle is modified, it is updated accordingly in the Vehicles Editor.
The table below provides the list of default account-level permissions for managing vehicles by user type (learn more about account-level permissions). To learn more about fleet visibility settings and the Read Only mode, visit this page.
