How long does it take for you to train drivers? A few days? A week? A month?

It doesn’t have to take that long.

Well, with manual route planning, it kind of does have to take that long. There’s really no way around it. Training your drivers takes hours upon hours – and that’s time that you could have been using to make more money.

And sometimes you spend all that time training someone, only for them to quit after just a few weeks on the job. What a waste!

Route4Me fleet route planning software drastically cuts down the amount of time it takes to train drivers. This will save you a lot of money, and it also makes it so that when a new hire doesn’t work out, it doesn’t hurt as bad.

How Fleet Route Planning Software Reduces The Time and Cost It Takes to Train Drivers 

Our routing optimization software offers 100% accurate, well-optimized routes. You don’t need to invest any time in ensuring your new driver follows the right route. Our software does that for you, automatically. It also stores all previous routes and stops, and you can use this information to teach drivers about all the little details that go into each trip. 

If necessary, you can set up our software up to avoid the following:

  • Left turns 
  • Right turns
  • U-turns
  • One-way roads 
  • Under-construction roads

You don’t need to input any specific instructions to take drivers though a specific route. Just plug in the address and go. 

How Fleet Route Planning Software Helps Track Vehicles and Drivers

Let’s say a customer needs a delivery at a specific time, on a specific day, at a specific place. Without vehicle route planning or GPS tracking software, a new driver still getting the hang of things might screw this task up. And even if they don’t, you’ll be stressed about it at the office for a while, not knowing if they made it on time or not until they get back. 

But with route scheduling software, your driver won’t screw up (assuming their IQ is >potato), and you’ll be able to track your driver every step of the way.

No stress for you; the customer gets what they want: an on-time delivery. Not bad, huh?


Our software is precise. It will guide your new drivers to not just the right location, but the right entrance at the right location. Knowing which entrance to use is something that often trips up new drivers – we’ve made a solution to that problem.
