Adding/ Importing vehicles

Adding a new vehicle manually can be done in Vehicles β‡’ Add a vehicle.

Input all required data such as vehicle name and the capacity based on the dimension units previously set up in Configuration.

Depending on your account configuration, you can also add truck specifications (to ensure that large vehicles for example are routed on the correct maps, avoiding low bridges, forbidden roads etc.).

Further, also depending on the account configuration, you can also add the relevant inputs to track vehicle-centric costs and any custom data fields pertaining specifically to vehicles.

Click Save once all the required data has been added.

Bulk-importing vehicles is also possible and explained in this article.

Vehicle information options

Vehicle information can be edited in Vehicles β‡’ Vehicle Profile.

In the Profile section of the Vehicle you are able to input the following information:

  • Reference

  • Name

  • License plate

  • Profile photo

  • Define a Vehicle category (motorcycle, bicycle, car, pickup, van, large van, truck, large truck)

  • Vehicle type

  • Assign teams

  • Define capacity

  • Add tags

In case you already have a defined Vehicle type, by selecting a type all these fields are going to be populated with the saved presets defined under a specific vehicle type. For example, if you've set specific tags and capacity for a vehicle type, upon selecting it, these fields will be auto-populated with the exact same information.

Additionally Vehicle specifications are specified in the Truck specifications section where you can define the following:

  • Type (select the Truck type and define Axle count)

  • Dimensions (specify the Height, Width and Length of the vehicle)

  • Weight (Max weight and Weight per axle)

  • Trailers (how many trailers the vehicle has)

  • Tunnel category

Please note that all of these parameters will be taken into account in the entire routing process. For example, if you select a specific tunnel category, eLogii will not send vehicles on routes that contain a tunnel the vehicle cannot pass through, or if you set a specific vehicle height, eLogii will not navigate the vehicles to go under overpasses that are too short for the vehicle to pass under.

Similarly to the Vehicle profile section, if a specific vehicle type is chosen, all the fields in this section will be auto-populated with the data defined within the vehicle type.

In addition, if you change any information for any vehicle type, these changes will automatically be applied to all the vehicles that have that specific vehicle type selected for them as well.

Vehicle Cost, Notes and Custom Data can also be edited in the Vehicle section as well.
