Business is conducted not only in cities but also in regional areas and it’s important to be able to track your fleet vehicles no matter where they may have to travel.
GPS fleet tracking allows you to follow each vehicle and provide any assistance to drivers especially in hard-to-reach remote country areas.
Out of the main populated areas mobile phone network becomes less reliable and with great areas of no coverage in remote areas between towns.
Satellite GPS tracking devices such as the fleetminder LP1 communicate directly with Iridium or Globalstar satellites and can send your fleet office the individual vehicle locations on a preset interval (interval timing e.g. every 2 hours, at preset times e.g. 9am, 12 noon, etc, or when certain conditions occur – the vehicle begins moving after being parked for a period of time).
Custom data with fleet GPS tracking devices
The satellite GPS units, like the fleetminder LP1 are easy to install and uses a combination of G-force / motion sensors, GPS positioning and any additional custom configured sensors.
Hence other useful vehicle or cargo data can be transmitted along with the GPS tracking data.
Fast fleet vehicle recovery with GPS tracking devices
When your drivers stay overnight at a motel or even stop in a country town there is a risk of fleet vehicle theft.
If the vehicle is stolen it can be located quickly – even in remote areas where the thieves plan to hide the vehicle asset and cargo off the main roads. The fleet vehicle’s exact location can be provided to police giving you the best opportunity to recover the vehicle, limiting damage and loss.
Not only is the van or truck a valuable asset but also the cargo can be valuable too (depending on each load, of course). Insurance can pay for loss of cargo, but for some customers, recovery of their stolen items may be a very high priority.
With GPS tracking devices giving driver the best chance of getting the fleet vehicle and cargo back quickly, repairing any vehicle damage and back on the road.
GPS tracking devices can bring to greater peace-of-mind and security to you and your drivers when they are travelling in remote areas.
