Accurate Dwell Time Insights

With accurate vehicle arrival and departure times, we can help carriers with contracts, service agreements, appointment windows, dispatch and detention fee collection, while fostering collaboration between carriers and shippers. 

Improved ETAs & Asset Tracking

Use exact location-to-location routing to improve ETAs, generate true mileage and calculate precise costs, as well as precisely track assets with arrival/departure times based on polygonal geofences around locations.

Reduced Delays & Dangers

Reduce delays and dangerous maneuvers when drivers are trying to find a location with turn-by-turn last mile navigation.

More Location Insights

Provide access to a variety of details related to a location, including coordinates, address, contact, custom notes and more.

Our precise polygonal geofences provide the highest degree of accuracy in navigation, notifications and asset activity insight.

Generic Point Radius Polygon


The traditional approach to geofences: the vehicle triggers an inaccurate arrival notification long before it will arrive at the destination.

Trimble Maps Polygon


Our approach to geofences: the vehicle triggers an arrival notification when it actually arrives at the destination.
