DRTrack 2020.3

Release Date: 30 Oct 2020


Enhancements in This Release

New: Added ability to set Lambda as a decimal value so that the routes created in DRTrack can be as optimal as possible. 

  • Go to Admin > Routing > Algorithm Settings > Default > Algorithm Settings > Lambda
  • Acceptable Lambda values are 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.8, 1.9, and 2.0.

New: Streamlined geocoding to include a fallback/zip result if no results are returned for a full address. 

  • The GeoResult will be displayed as Zip Code for the account or order that is geocoded.

New:  Added ability for users to select a default branch to be displayed first, by default, in the drop downs on most DRT pages.

  • To set the default branch, go to Admin > Site > Users; select a checkbox under a column called Default Branch on the Branch Access page.

New: Samsara/DRTrack Integration feature. 

  • ShipTo addresses, if different from the Account Master address, will now pass to, and appear, in Samsara.

New: Rush Hour Rules Added. Defined at the Order/Account level or Truck level, this setting will affect how drive time and distance is calculated, allowing for more accurate estimated times. 

  • Used to account for heavier traffic at different times of the day and/or condensed city centers. At the Order/Account level, update the Time Speed Adjustment. Fill in time values in AM Start/AM End or PM Start/PM End and add a percentage in AM Adj/PM Adj (100 is baseline). The percentage will adjust the speed during the times indicated (AM Start/AM End or PM Start/PM End) which then impacts the estimated arrival time of each stop. 
  • Increased drive time = decreased vehicle speed; decreased drive time = increased vehicle speed. 
  • Example: If AM Adj = 120, drive time is increased and vehicle is slowed by 20%; if AM Adj = 80, drive time is decreased and vehicle speed is increased by 20%. 

New: Unconsolidate Stop Option for Consolidated Stops. 

  • Users can now select a specific order to unconsolidate from a group of consolidated orders on a stop. Once an order has been unconsolidated, it can be moved to another route or stop, reassigned to another asset, another day, etc.

New: Error message added to warn and prevent unloading all stops on the first leg of a multi-leg route . 

  • Prevents display of a message stating the route is empty (it's not looking at the second leg of the route). The new message displayed reads The first leg on a multi-leg route cannot be empty.
