Topic: Determining duration of Unit as either a Delivery or Pick Up vehicle
I would like to find out if anyone has encountered a similar case as mine.
My client has trucks that are routinely used for either Delivery or Pick Up (of cargo). On a given day, a truck, for example, can be tasked with one or more Delivery in the morning and one or more Pick Up in the afternoon. The client is able to know arrival, departure and duration at each location using the Geofence report since all Delivery and Pick Up locations are geofenced in WH.
The client would like to know though how much time is spent in Delivery vs. Pick Up activity. This helps them with utilization information.
I created 2 Unit Groups: Delivery and Pick Up. The client would move the Unit between these Groups manually during the day. Problem is, client finds this tedious and they still don't know how much time is spent by the truck as either a Delivery truck or Pick Up truck since there's no report that can give this info (ex. 4 hours as Delivery and 2 hours as Pick Up)
Can anyone suggest a way to automate things for them:
1. If we assign a route to the trucks and somehow be able designate each check point as either a Delivery or Pick Up. Easier for the client, of course, if they could use the Logistics moduel.
2. When the truck enters the geofence of the Delivery or Pick Up location, the truck becomes tagged as a Delviery or Pick Up truck.
The tagging would be best implemented as changing the value of a Custom Sensor so that we could use Sensor Tracing table in a report but i don't know if this possible. .
Any ideas would be most welcome.
