Map

Tracking your Driver

stay updated on your driver’s status

As the dispatcher / user of GetSwift you have the ability to view your drivers in real-time on the map view.


VISIBILITY

Driver's availability and stage of a delivery will clearly be visible on the map based on the color of the driver's icon.

You can have your drivers manually update their stage within the app to indicate things such as when they are:

  • At a pick-up location

  • On-way / en-route to a customer

  • At destination

  • Completed a task

Alternatively, you can have geofencing enabled so your drivers stages are automatically updated as they complete the delivery phases.

ETA, otherwise known as Estimated Time of Arrival, gives more visibility into driver tracking showing the time is will take for the driver to complete an assigned delivery.  

 

Contact Us to Enable Geofencing & ETA

Route Optimization

become more efficient by automatically optimizing driver’s routes

Automatically optimize the delivery route for each driver based on factors such as distance or promise time. This will save you a lot of time planning out daily routes, as well as the driving time, fuel and distance travelled by each vehicle.
