Transportation Management System

Business Challenge

Our client has asked us to create a comprehensive transportation management system to simplify all the process of using vehicles, to increase the efficiency of working vehicles, to allow tracking the routing and dispatching of the cars. The GPS vehicle tracking feature should help to optimize operations and complete more orders, provide security and real-time tracking. The TMS solution should give to entrepreneurs great control functions, quick and accurate feedback, and should provide the drivers with reliable and timely information about vehicle statuses (oil and fuel level, seat belt position and battery charge level and etc ) and traffic. Moreover, it should have a complete list of possible functionality from a vehicle request to online payment.

Transportation Management System

Solution

XB Software team has designed and developed an easy-to-use transportation management system with GPS tracking features. The system includes the number of services, that are connected to each other during the data flows. The system is able to work on the Vehicle data, Trip data, Map (locations and pickup points searching), costs and time analytics, make online payments, have an individual base of trips.

The transportation management system was required to be created in accordance with the latest and innovative IT and design trends, that is why XB Software team selected Webix JavaScript UI library as the framework of the future logistics management application. Furthermore, Webix was used to implement the system dashboards.

This management system allows users to determine quickly the current location, the nearest possible landing site, calculates the approximate time of arrival of the company’s transport and allows users to track its path, inform about the price of a future trip. It allows users to make a request for replanting in a public vehicle, which has already started its route with free seats in it. The system also includes a payment management module and an analytic module.

In terms of use, the proposed transportation management solution can be divided into 2 large blocks:

1. custom services can use the app to:

  • determine the current location
  • estimate time and cost for the future trip
  • calculate approximate time of arrival to the definite pick up point
  • make the online payment for the service rendered

2. service administration, data and statistics management:

  • analytics of outgoing and received data
  • precise control of the vehicle (the point of departure, route, the point of arrival, time of travel)
  • statistics of movements and routes, their popularity and cost
  • financial analytics (income, revenue, delivery time, number of clients) and its visualization
  • vehicle state, location, status monitoring, and controlling system
  • location tracking system

We developed an interactive visualization dashboard that allows monitoring all related metrics. Managers can view and analyze the collected statistics data (trips, routes, pick up points, types of vehicles, vehicles statuses, user statistics, payment statistics, etc.)
