Planning is performed in the normal way within the TMS and manifests generated for each driver and vehicle. The manifest, in run order, is sent to the TomTom PRO device in the vehicle and the driver goes to the first job in the manifest. The Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) is transmitted back to the TMS system and all records updated. Where there is a change to the ETA calculated by the device, the revised ETA is transmitted back to the TMS. On arrival at the destination point, the driver confirms the arrival and departure to the next destination. This is automatically transmitted and the TMS updated. At this point the driver is navigated to the next destination and the next ETA is transmitted.
