Knowing where each vehicle is at any given time can assist with fleet scheduling, route optimization, and fuel consumption management. TomTom helps build fleet management solutions by providing location and routing information to developers through easy-to-use APIs.
Last-mile logistics refers to the transfer of a product or person from a hub to its final destination. In this article, we'll examine key aspects of last-mile fleet scenarios and how TomTom location services can help you build last-mile logistics applications.
In a previous article we saw how Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) supplied transit information to applications through APIs and General Transit Feed Specification Real-Time (GTFS-RT) data to grab station locations and train Estimated Time of Departure (ETD) data and use the TomTom Maps SDK to create a real-time commute map.
TomTom mapping and routing APIs and the TomTom Maps SDK have many useful features for developers building fleet management and logistics applications. In this article, we'll highlight the API and SDK features you can use to build these apps.
September was all about fun side projects and fleet management tools for developers. Read on for a recap of the blogs, YouTube videos, Twitch Devisodes, and events from TomTom Developers you may have missed this past month.
Fleet management and routing applications have special needs — from shortest travel time to traffic to routing hundreds of vehicles at once. We'll take a look at how the TomTom Matrix Routing API can power complex fleet routing applications.
Geocoding — translating addresses into coordinates — and Geofencing — defining geographic areas to simplify location tracking — are key location technologies for fleet management software. We'll explain how you can use them to build business-critical apps.
The TomTom Location History service, along with the Geofencing API, provides crucial details about fleet movement for a business. We'll look at how developers can harness them to build smart fleet-tracking apps.
