Mileage and Routing
TruETA is a cloud-based dispatch-to-delivery solution that automates ETA calculations, showing you where every load is and when it will arrive, also alerting you to potential issues. TruETA calculates and displays ETAs from dispatch and at each stop. TruETA accounts for required driver breaks and calculates remaining HOS at each destination to support accurate advanced planning. Visualize live traffic flow, weather and road surface overlays of current conditions to quickly identify and react to events.
Driver Trip Planning Module
A supplemental module to TruETA for TMW.Suite and TMWSuite, allow dispatchers to view how drivers are planning their trip, including rest locations they choose and durations of each stop. The tool runs as a module within TMWGo! and enables drivers to take into account their hours of service, and it recommends stops based off remaining drivable time. By knowing where a driver will stop, for how long they will stop and how their hours of service are affected, the Driver Trip Planning module calculates one of the most accurate ETAs from dispatch to delivery.
Out-of-Route and Out-of-Corridor Module
The module for TruETA enables carriers to see when drivers take an alternate route that wasn’t part of the original plan. The carrier can see how long a trip may be extended in terms of distance, time, or both. The carrier can also alert the driver that they have diverged from the planned route and proceed back to the correct road. The module assists with driver route compliance and to better manage margins.
