Trip Management Release Notes


Oct. 21, 2020

  • IMPROVED For rest stops, the EarliestArrivalTime is now set by default to 1 hour before the CurrentETA, and LatestArrivalTime is set to 1 later than the CurrentETA.

  • FIXED Fixed an issue that could cause ETAs to be re-calculated using old GPS pings.

  • FIXED Fixed an issue that was preventing earliest and latest arrival times from being retained when the Modify Trip API is called.

Oct. 7, 2020

  • IMPROVED If a vehicle is “Arrived” at a stop, the Recalculate Trip API will use the most recent time available to recalculate the trip’s ETA—whether it’s the actualArrivalTime, plannedDepartureTime, or a GPS ping time stamp.

  • FIXED Fixed a bug in which GPS pings weren’t being considered in ETA calculation if they were reported and the Recalculate Trip API was called in direct succession (less than 5 milliseconds).

April 8, 2020

  • IMPROVED Trips will not include HOS rest stops in the U.S. that are known to be closed due to COVID-19.

Release Date: January 13, 2020

  • NEW A new externalOrderIds field has been added, allowing you to include a list of orders associated with a trip.

  • IMPROVED The tripStatus field is now marked as InProgress once the first GPS position is received for the trip.

  • IMPROVED The Get Route Path API can now be used for trips with the initial tripStatus of Planned, in addition to trips that are InProgress or Completed.

Release Date: October 28, 2019

  • NEW A new Auto-Arrive/Depart feature will automatically mark stops in a trip as “Arrived” or “Departed” by comparing a vehicle’s GPS position with either:

    • A Site perimeter polygon, if one exists for that stop. That includes polygons created by Trimble MAPS for truck stops, distribution centers, etc., as well as Custom Place Site polygons that you have created in ContentTools.

    • An air distance of 0.5 miles from a stop. Within that distance a stop will be marked as “Arrived.” Outside of that distance it will be marked as “Departed.”

In the past, users had to enter these stop status changes manually. A notification will also be created for every stop status change. The Auto-Arrive/Depart feature and related notifications are on by default and can be turned off by request.

Release Date: October 10, 2019

  • IMPROVED New API endpoints have been added that allow you to call or modify trip information using either the ALK Trip ID returned when you planned the trip or the TMS Trip ID in your planning system.

Release Date: July 16, 2019

  • IMPROVED The Hours of Service (HOS) features for our Trip Management APIs have been updated to now take into account:

    • HOS rules in the U.S. and Canada during trips that cross the border.

    • HOS compliance when team driving with two drivers.
