How do I import vehicles from Samsara into Rose Rocket?

  1. In the Integrations page, select the ‘Import Data’ button in the top right-hand corner. 
  2. Rose Rocket will take your vehicle data from Samsara and create profiles for them automatically in Rose Rocket. Equipment profiles can be found in the ‘Equipment’ page.
  3. Rose Rocket will confirm what data was imported from KeepTruckin. If a profile has already been imported, Rose Rocket will decline it so it doesn’t duplicate.

Note: We only import active vehicles (trailers and drivers will not import over)
