  • Maintain safe and efficient driving: Keep truck drivers safe and efficient on the roads with automatic route generation and advanced road warnings of potential driving hazards. 

  • Analyze route performance: Integrate post-trip route visualization and reporting to analyze route performance across your entire fleet. 

5 benefits of integrating CoPilot Truck route planning software with your fleet management solution 

To maximize the benefits from your CoPilot Truck route planning software, you should consider integrating it with a fleet management solution, such as Samsara. CoPilot Truck integrates seamlessly with the Samsara Open API so you can access all of your fleet data from one single platform. Combine real-time traffic data and customizable truck routes from CoPilot Truck with fleet safety and compliance data from Samsara to improve efficiency and streamline the driver experience across your entire fleet. 

Read on to learn five key benefits of integrating CoPilot Truck with your fleet management solution. 

1. Improve navigation accuracy

CoPilot Truck’s software provides drivers with turn-by-turn GPS navigation and directions for their prescribed route. Offline navigation features from CoPilot Truck ensure your drivers will never lose sight of your destination, regardless of connectivity. 

By integrating CoPilot Truck with your real-time GPS tracking solution, such as Samsara, you can eliminate breadcrumb tracking and get live-to-the-second tracking on your vehicles so that you know where they are at all times. With both CoPilot Truck and Samsara, your drivers and back office staff will be able to navigate smoothly and improve route visibility.

This will help drivers stay on track and maintain on-time deliveries. In addition to helping your back office save time, this will also help minimize service interruptions and keep customers happy. With features such as Samsara’s Live Sharing, you can provide live sharing links with customers so they can stay up to date on the real-time status of their delivery.

4. Analyze route performance

With routing data from CoPilot Truck, you can view the Planned vs. Actual Report in the Samsara dashboard to compare route performance over a given period of time. This data can help you determine route efficiency and make necessary route optimizations to improve on-time performance. 

5. One consolidated app for all of your fleet’s needs 

By integrating CoPilot Truck with your fleet management solution, you can give your drivers the tools they need in one single app. This helps truck drivers avoid switching between multiple apps for routing or truck navigation, compliance, and DVIRs, and other workflows—which helps keep them focused on driving. For example, with the driver-friendly Samsara Driver App, drivers can view their CoPilot Truck routes within the same app they use to update their duty status, submit digital documents, and more.
