Managing Your Fleet of Vehicles
Route4Me helps you create and manage your fleet of vehicles in the most efficient way. You can add multiple vehicles to your Route4Me account and assign these vehicles to your routes. Route4Me allows you to create detailed descriptions of your vehicles which helps you to assign the right vehicles to the right routes and makes your route planning process more cost-effective and flexible.
