Logistics activities refer to transporting materials and/or storing them in specific warehouse (platforms) for a given period of time. Typical problems are related to route and vehicle load optimization and monitoring of transportation conditions. GPS availability in the vehicles allows transportation companies to remotely check if vehicles are on schedule. Such information is often related to a single shipment. This paper presents a web tool which aims to support analysts through an interactive visualization technique that shows all routes performed by the vehicles in a given period of time on a geographic map. The tool allows analysts to perform explorative analysis in order to obtain information that otherwise is difficult to get. Various filters help them to reduce the visualized data to a manageable quantity. The interface is simple, complex queries can be executed by specifying a few parameters and performing zoom & pan gestures on the map.
