For Vehicles Operators

For vehicles operators with several vehicles our new planning screen is an essential tool adding to the job entry, administration and financial control functionality provided by ROADFREIGHT for road forwarders job and sub-contractors control.

We bespoke the planning screen to your requirements including the functionality to alter the hours included in your working periods for the day.

The vehicles detail displayed ranges from showing a Vehicle or Driver only* resulting in a one line job display across the screen or Vehicle Registration, Driver names, Vehicle type and Vehicle notes, resulting in a deeper field showing several jobs for that daily period or perhaps just more job data.

*If you chose to assign a driver to a job and truck, based on available drive times the driver name and length of assignment can be displayed in the horizontal bar separating vehicles.



The planning screen will automatically fill any monitor, display on 2 or more screens, or a large TV screen mounted vertically, providing transparency to all staff.

• The fields shown for the available jobs will be displayed as you require, suiting your service speciality, in your preferred order, the Container Summary field shows the summary of a mix of Containers, Caravans, or Plant etc.to be transported, each unit having been entered as a line of goods including all required information, including serial and seal numbers.

• The detail of the job data shown against each vehicle once allocated is as defined by you, a mouse “hover” displays more detail, a single click takes the user to the job entry screen or multi-drop screen to edit the shipment.

• If normally one job fills allocated hours, making the best use of the screen additional jobs can still be added utilising a “Scroll Bar”. Once a job has been completed and the time and date entered in the quick entry screen the job details change colour.

• The horizontal bar that separates jobs and vehicles can be populated with a drivers name and total driving hours. In this case Just the vehicle needs to be shown on the vehicle listings so you could have just a truck and a job one liner with a driver name shown below the job line.

• If more than one job needs to be included in that days period a scroll bar will display several jobs.

• It’s an easy task to swop an entire or part completed job from one vehicle to another.

• A mouse click on a single job it takes the user to the chosen 4 or 6 field quick entry screen, if a multi pick up/drop is clicked it shows the multi drop screen (shown on page 31 of our variants guide).

• If preferred one job can fills a days “Period” making the best use of the screen, additional jobs can still be displayed thanks to a “Scroll Bar”.

The screen shot displayed below shows some of the controls we have included to satisfy your requirements, including the colours of the screen and the area of the screen sized as required.



In addition vehicles can be allocated or unallocated to the planning screen and displayed in your chosen order.

The fields and field titles and order of display are managed within the ROADFREIGHT application by your installation engineer as are many other changes that can be included. Another feature of ROADFREIGHT that will soon be available to all our hauliers is;

Tachometrics an application that receives vehicle and driver data every few minutes from a trucks original equipment Tachograph and Telematics devices. Currently Scania, Volvo and Renault Collated data can then be shared with the Payroll Department for wages calculation, linked driver to vehicle data (including infringements), delivered to the transport manager and all drivers hours history's and next drive hours availability shared with the trip planner.

The drivers data table is shared with Logistical Software’s own transport management system Linking GPS co-ordinates to the Collection or Delivery post codes, updating the interactive vehicle planning screen, or your own third party application for driver to truck assignment ensuring compliance with the working time directive and efficient use of trucks and drivers.

The screen displayed below has our initial customers live real data blurred deliberately.

As indicated by the initial filters the vehicle location can be displayed now by selecting the driver or truck as the live data is taken directly from the vehicles original equipment device, historical data can be displayed / selected by driver or vehicle. Our customer’s larger clients could be granted secure password controlled access to this screen displaying their shipments only.



The GPS coordinates displayed are converted to “Geo Fence” postcodes linking with the ROADFREIGHT application, updating both the job and the planning screen with the journey or the leg of the journey being completed.

Please be reminded this application is unique because it is using the vehicles own devices and that reporting is specific for payroll generation, driver records and operations. This saves the cost of third party equipment and monthly subscriptions, a lot of money if you have 20 plus vehicles. Tachometrics reporting also includes the fuel consumption per truck per driver.

This product should be available for general release in mid-March once we has establish collaboration with some third party track data providers.

We welcome the opportunity to make a no obligation presentation at your premises.
