The Live Availability Map (also known as the LAM) is a live map overview of all the Exchange drivers who are currently sharing their GPS locations.
This map is useful when members want to track their own drivers and subcontractors, but also other drivers. The LAM gives you the ability to search and filter for the nearest driver to the pickup location.
In order to track your own drivers, please click on the “Drivers & Subcontractors” option at the top of the map.
In order to view all the advertised vehicles on the map, click on the “All” option at the top of the map.
The Search panel on the left-hand side of the screen can be used to use various filters, and to save these as default.
If you're a load poster, you can link the map to Private Groups – which useful when you're searching for reliable contacts before advertising the job publicly!
What’s the difference between the Live and Future map options?
The Live map can be accessed through the Live Availability tab on the desktop (and on the CX fleet app). This shows tracked vehicles on the platform. The Future map is vehicle locations which are advertised as 'future positions'.
Access the future map by clicking 'Future'.
The Future Map indicates on which day and between which times the vehicle will be on standby and is looking for another job. This is useful when a member wants to know if there are any available vehicles in the future, in certain areas throughout the country.
If you want to advertise a future position on the platform, please use the green button called “Add Future Position” in order to register your future position.
The Live Availability map is only accessible on both CX and HX Company and Freight Forwarders subscriptions. This applies to Essential, Pro and Premium subscriptions.
How do I access the Live Availability Map on my apps?
The Live Availability Map is also accessible on the CX Fleet app.
Click on the Loads tab, then click on 'Search Live Capacity' in order to search a vehicle based on the postcode, mileage, vehicle size and/or body type.
