Roadnet Transportation Suite (RTS) version 3.50 offers fleet managers and owners more accurate maintenance interval tracking and improved quality of location delivery cost reports.

The software, from Roadnet Technologies, also includes new functionality features to address a range of product and delivery variables.

“RTS v3.50 reflects the result of feedback and extensive conversations with our existing customers in our ongoing effort to design upgrades to our software packages that can be applied directly in the transportation logistics field,” said Len Kennedy, CEO. “Our team of engineers utilized this input to implement new features and functionality that can achieve important bottom-line and resource efficiency results.”

Roadnet Transportation Suite v3.50 is suitable for a diverse range of transportation logistics applications and, with the new design elements, can address the requirements specific to the solid waste industry, such as different container sizes, waste types and depot capabilities, the company said.

The service time maintenance tool ensures that future routes and calculations are more accurate by utilizing historical service times to compute predicted maintenance intervals. The tool also includes updates when actual quantities are fixed but service times vary.

A location delivery cost report module has also been incorporated, providing accurate data regarding the actual costs for visiting individual customers. In addition, users of the vehicle GPS tracking software package have the ability to view multiple depots and determine their customized differences, aided by a proprietary color-coding system.

“Our research and development team is constantly searching for innovative solutions to our customer’s transportation logistics challenges, and we depend on their views and opinions of real-world situations to add clarity to our value-engineering activities,” Kennedy added.

Other features of this version of Roadnet’s fleet tracking and management software include additional break windows for routers to configure their system to account for extended work days; a mid-route sourcing feature that factors in additional activities during the regular pick-up and drop-off schedule; and a return to stop and redeliver element that addresses overlooked product that failed to be delivered at the pre-determined stop.
