How To Add A Depot

This article will provide the steps on how to add a depot in Detrack Route Optimization. A depot can be selected for the starting and ending location of the vehicle.
If the same depot is chosen as the ending location, the path is a “directed/closed-path run,” meaning the vehicle returns to the starting location after completing the run.

Steps

  • Navigate to Routes.
  • Click on the Add Depot button.
  • A form will appear.
    • Name => Generic Name for the depot.
    • Address => Location of the depot.
    • Latitude => Latitude of the Address.
    • Longitude => Longitude of the Address.

    1) After entering the address, click on the Magnifying Glass Icon. The geocoding service will attempt to look for the location and fill up the Latitude and Longitude. * It is highly recommended to enter the address of the location. Before clicking on the Magnifying Glass Icon: After clicking the Magnifying Glass Icon:
