Logistics Fleet Management App for a Transportation Company

Learn how a growing logistics company made its jump into mobile technology with our fleet management app solution and became an overnight sensation in the trucking industry.

Client & Project Overview

A fast-growing trucking and logistics firm in India looked to scale their business and increase their customer reach through digital logistics management software. Their search for the best app development company brought them to Excellent Webworld.

The client had a very clear idea of what they were looking to build and achieve with their trucking and transportation management system, but they were confused with the fleet management app’s visual aspect. We helped them with the app’s visual design, UI/UX design, and developing the entire trucking app solution from the base.

We built a complete fleet management system for logistics and driver tracking apps for the Android platform that the company could use to manage their business and reach new customers.

The client had some budgetary limitations, so instead of going with both iOS and Android app platform, we decided it would be better to build a single platform app. Our BA’s preliminary research suggested that most truck drivers used Android devices, and the platform had a higher battery output in general compared to Apple devices. So, we decided to develop both the apps only for the Android platform.

What Did We Make?

The client came to us with a precise list of requirements for the fleet management systems and a confirmed list of app features to build on.

It’s so rare to find a client who clearly knows what they want and is confident about it. The work went smoothly in terms of communication, design, and development. We created the Android apps for customers and the truck drivers and also built a fleet management web app panel for the admin team to track the trucks and cargo.

We wanted to raise the bar with the map integration and make TruckZapp our best map integration project yet. With consistent efforts and innovative development methods, we were able to achieve 99% accuracy in map location with a tolerance range of 10-15 meters.

With years of experience in developing transportation management systems, we knew exactly what to do and how.

How Did We Make?

We had a lot of fun developing TruckZapp, but there were a few instances where we did face some hiccups. For instance, we had an issue with the driver app, as in some instances, the drivers would be running the app for almost a whole day. Such a length of operation puts some load on the app, but we quickly solved the app hang issue.

Another interesting problem that we loved to tackle was when the driver app runs in background mode; the real-time tracking feature faced some issues. Thanks to our development team that entails a majority of senior developers with several years of experience under their belt, the solution was relatively quick and quite efficient, keeping us under the decided development timeline.
