TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Truck Management Software... Any suggestions?

We are currently using the Wordpress appliance for our company and we are looking for some software to help us manage our trucking fleet.  We have 10+ trucks and trailers (the trailers are dropped at sites and picked up when full) and we need someway to track locations of drops, status of DOT inspections, on-ste inspections, when licenses ned to be paid, etc.

Does anyone know of a opensource appliance here that could be customized for this or know of any other I could try to install on a turnkey base to do this?  We have non-techie people (such as our truck drivers) using this software so I'm looking to stay with Turnkey if at all possible.

Thanks for your help!

Nothing in the TKL library that I know of

But Google turned up a few ideas that may be worth further exploration. I think they are server side type software (that could be installed on a TKL base) but I'm not totally sure. I can't recommend any of them as I haven't used any of them and they're in no particullar order.

Add-on / Plugin for CMS

You could use an add-on for a CMS like Joomla.

I found "Vehicle Manager" for Joomla, maybe this is somthing that suits your needs.


Open Source Software

Hello,

For the truck Management, I also suggest the Vehicle Manager. It is the best one I think . Also You are looking fo rmore suggestions. Then I will recommend Truck Dispatch SOftware to you. It is available with Open Source. So you can easily find it on Google.

Hope this information helps you. If you want to know the benefits of open source Softwares then you must visit this article to get the complete information and to us ethem properly.

Thanks & regards
