Routes - Tracking routes - Map view

You are able to check each route's progress in the Map view, by clicking on the marker of the vehicle which is executing the route and selecting the Routes tab from the bottom panel:

If you wish to see only the routes in a particular status, you can filter the routes using the Status filter:

Let's focus now on the graphical representation of the route and the vehicle's progress:

Time T Time T+t

Consider the example in the previous picture, with two snapshots (Time T and Time T+t) of a route with two steps: the first from Acme Office till Acme Warehouse and then from Acme Warehouse till Acme Office 2.

The horizontal line represents the route's length and the vehicle's position on the line shows the approximate distance (in %) already traveled by the vehicle in each step of the route (to know more about vehicle icons, click here).

From Time T to  Time T+t the vehicle advanced towards the ending point.

Above the vehicle,the route's compliance is displayed: 

In this example, at Time T the compliance is a delay of 34 minutes between the STA and the ETA. At Time T+t, the compliance is a delay of 45 minutes between the STA and the ETA.

For active routes (under execution), the compliance is the difference between the STA and the ETA.

For completed routes, the compliance is the difference between the STA and ATA.

 

Depending on the status of the Route and its compliance, you will see the following color representations:

Status Delay Line color
Completed No significant delay or even advance
Minor delay
Major delay
Executing No significant delay or even advance
Minor delay
Major delay
Pending  
Abandoned  

You can define which delay you want to be considered as minor and/or major in Administration > Account > Route. For this example, the default values used were: 10 minutes as minor delay and 1 hour for major delay.

If you click on any part of the route graphical representation, a light blue rectangle will surround the route line in the route bottom panel:

The following screen will be displayed:

The assigned route path is now shown on the map (light blue shade indicated by the purple arrow).

The route's destinations are marked in the map as follows:

Icon Description
Starting waypoint of the route
Intermediate waypoint of the route (Starting/ending point of a route's step)
Ending waypoint of the route

Now, if you click the View all button, located on the right lower part of the screen, you will be redirected to the Routes folder with the vehicle, status and date already selected:

Additionally, you will also have the Information box (indicated above by the red contour):

The box contains a table with the following information:

Field Description
Departure time This value shows the departure time planned, the one executed and the difference between the two.
Mileage This value shows the planned mileage, the one executed  and the difference between them.
Cost This value shows the planned cost, the one executed and the difference between them.
Driving time This value shows the planned driving time, the one executed and the difference between them.
Breaks This value shows the planned break times, the one executed and the difference between them.
Total trip duration

This value shows the planned total trip duration, the one executed and the difference between them.

The total trip duration is calculated as the sum of the driving time and the breaks.

Stopover

This value shows the planned stopover time, the one executed and the difference between them.

Total route duration

This value shows the planned total route duration, the one executed and the difference between them.

The total route duration is calculated as the sum of the total trip duration and the stopovers.

Arrival to destination This value shows the planned arrival to destination time, the one executed and the difference between them.

The values of the Information box are always updated whenever a vehicle is executing a route and Frotcom receives information from the vehicle.

Note that the waypoints along the route path are independent of the selected time frame of the full path mode. When the route path is shown, the waypoints are shown since the moment the route was activated until the present moment.
