Manage your vehicles in one dashboard
Samsara lets you manage routes for trucks, buses, delivery vehicles, and more. Instead of manually calling drivers to see where they are, Samsara lets you instantly track vehicle location, route progress, and late or missed stops. When schedules don’t go as planned, Samsara lets you adapt on-the-go. Dispatchers can easily re-route vehicles remotely and send messages to drivers (or an entire fleet) using the Samsara Driver App.

Improving billing with geofences and accurate data
With contractors and drivers making multiple trips per day, six days a week, across dozens of sites, keeping track of hours and loads is a challenge. To solve for this, Goodfellow Bros. set up geofences for key addresses related to their projects—from dump sites to the clean up sites. With Samsara Geofences and GPS tracking, Goodfellow Bros. was able to keep an accurate account of their hours and locations and track which trucks were delivering which loads when, leading to a 20% decrease in billable hours.Learn how

Track vehicle movement
Samsara's geofence alerts help you track when your vehicles enter or exit a location. You can customize the geofence area by drawing your area of interest on a map with a box, circle, or freehand and choosing what times it is in use. Customers use geofences to reduce theft, improve unload and delivery times, and track unauthorized vehicle use.
