Transport Application Development

KitApp studio creates applications for transport companies in taxi, logistics, delivery, passenger, cargo, and postal transportation. We develop fast, convenient apps with wide functionality for iOS, Android, and cross-platforms with placement in Google Play Market and App Store.

Development of applications for transport to order

transport app

Business in the field of transport is colossal work, with constant communication between customers, contractors, and intermediaries, continuous monitoring, and strict accounting of many operations. We can solve all these tasks with the help of a mobile application.

How we create transport applications:

  • We analyze the specifics of the company’s work, based on which we make a unique product for our client’s business.
  • We combine functionality for all participants in the workflow in one application – for example, drivers, passengers, and administrators. Each of them has its functional panel with the desired access level.
  • Before starting the development of the project, we approve the terms of reference and sign the contract, so the client receives all the necessary guarantees.
  • By additional agreement, we provide services for the search promotion of the application, advertising, technical support, and regular release updates.

Types of mobile applications for transport and logistics

Taxi

The main goal of creating a mobile taxi application is to fully automate the service’s operation. Drivers and passengers register and use the functionality through their accounts. The administrator manages the system using a convenient admin panel.

Options for passengers:

  • car search, selection of additional characteristics (car class, air conditioning, etc.);
  • ordering and canceling a trip;
  • automatic determination of the location of the passenger and the car;
  • пbuilding a route, automatic price calculation taking into account the discount;
  • choice of payment method, different forms of online payments;
  • saving travel history, accumulation of bonuses;
  • tracking a trip on a map using GPS in real-time;
  • the opportunity to get acquainted with the driver’s rating, and rate, and write a review about the trip;
  • communication (chat) with the driver in the application, receiving push notifications.

Functionality for drivers:

  • notifications about new orders, orders with a precise indication of trip conditions;
  • building an optimal route using a GPS navigator, automatic price calculation;
  • statistics of trips, income, fines, and bonuses;
  • communication with the passenger in the application (call or message), determining the location of the passenger.

Features for the administrator:

  • tracking the location and movement of cars;
  • history and statistics of active and completed orders;
  • connection and disconnection of drivers, income statistics;
  • online user support.
trucking

Mobile applications for cargo transportation, delivery, and logistics automate the organization, accounting, control of trips, and movement of goods. Creating an application for cargo transportation solves important practical problems:

  • cargo tracking in real time;
  • processing and receiving online orders;
  • calculation of the cost of services;
  • order status tracking;
  • warehouse management;
  • catalog of cars, schedule, routes, and technical condition;
  • push notifications for customers and drivers;
  • navigation, building, and tracking routes;
  • control of fuel consumption, fixing deviations from the course;
  • accounting of fines;
  • control of the maintenance of vehicles;
  • control of work of couriers, and forwarders;
  • automation of workflow, the formation of invoices;
  • management and accounting of the transfer of goods;
  • providing employees and customers with the necessary reference information;
  • feedback between all parties – customers, drivers, managers, and administrators.
booking service

The application for booking passenger transportation can function in two formats:

  • Booking services of one carrier. Passengers buy tickets and book trips online in the app of a transport company.
  • Ticket marketplaces. Such applications combine the services of different carriers on one platform.

The functionality of the mobile service for booking trips includes:

  • route directory, travel schedule;
  • search by various parameters;
  • filtering and sorting tickets, route-map;
  • online seat selection form;
  • secure online payment form;
  • automatic generation of online tickets with QR code and receipt;
  • bonus system, push notifications.

Stages of developing mobile applications for transport

The development of mobile applications for logistics companies, taxis, carriers, and transport tracking is a multi-stage process in which a team of front-end and back-end developers, project managers, designers, and testers works. How we are working:

We analyze competitors and businesses

We analyze the specifics of the business - what the company does, what tasks the application should solve, and what audience requests. We monitor similar products of competitors and find their advantages and disadvantages. We eliminate mistakes and fix successful solutions to make the app better.

We define the functionality and form the project specification

Together with the customer, we think over the functionality of the client part and the admin panel. We fix the detailed structure of the app in the terms of reference and a list of options and available features.

We sign an agreement

After agreeing on the terms of reference, we evaluate the final cost, determine the real development time, conclude an agreement, and start the project work. We develop in accordance with the terms of reference and the terms of the contract.

We develop the interface

We create UX/UI design and provide convenience and ergonomics of the app interface so that any user can quickly understand the application and use all its features. Before programming, we create a prototype for testing a "live" interface.

We do programming

We develop the architecture of the application, and we perform programming. We create an administrative panel and platforms for drivers, passengers, logisticians, traffic controlers, etc.

Testing the product

Before launch, we conduct testing to eliminate failures and errors. The client can order additional services - publication in App Store and/or Play Market, ASO optimization, promotion, advertising and other methods, technical support, and release of updates.
