Telematics for subcontractors made easy

Telematics for subcontractors is made easy with subcontractor management by Astrata;

  • It allows direct contact and communication (including orders and changes to orders) with the driver – using the same fleet management portal as a transport company’s own fleet.
  • Allows the driver to pro-actively send status updates about trip progress, load conditions, discrepancies, or delays.
  • Monitors the progress of each vehicle in real time against the planned route and timing. It does this irrespective of the type of on-board computer, since communication can also go by free-form messages using the Driver Telematics App.
  • The system is completely scalable. With dozens (sometimes even thousands) of loads to manage, management by exception focuses on trucks that are running late, so communication can take place directly with the driver. 

 

Other benefits:

  • Gain real-time control over (estimated) arrival and departure times
  • Insights of time spent on location by the subcontractor
  • Information flow between back-office and external truck drivers is executed smoothly
  • All communication documented and processed centrally
  • Manage your subcontracted loads as if they were transported by your own fleet
  • A single dispatcher is capable of managing up to 50% more trucks by automating workflows

Smart insights to improve your performance

Business Analytics provide detailed, reliable and insightful information and reports about the loads you outsource to subcontractors and enable continuous improvement cycles and reduce costs while increasing service levels.

  • Real-time feedback from the road, made insightful in powerful reports
  • Manage all your loads as if they were transported by your own fleet
  • Know exactly where all of your assets are and how their drivers execute their route
  • Avoid disputes with drivers and customers
  • Create insights in historical trips and driver activities
