GPS truck tracking devices can provide immediate benefits for your business with improved efficiency, better customer service and lower fuel and truck operations administration costs.
These benefits can be achieved through a number of specific methods of GPS tracking and reporting:
Reduce fuel costs with GPS truck tracking devices
GPS truck tracking devices monitor speeding and idling times while your trucks are in the field and will give you the ability to change and reduce these two fuel consuming activities.
This can be achieved by better route management and pickup/delivery timings.
Live tracking and reporting systems such as the fleetminder Live Tracking service can provide you with accurate information on speeding and idling.
(a sample of the fleetminder Live Tracking OverSpeed report)
(an example of the fleetminder Live Tracking Idle Report – the vehicle was idling for over 1 hour)
Routing assistance with GPS truck tracking
GPS truck tracking devices give you the tools to better manage the routes that your trucks will travel while they are in the field and reduce unnecessary inactivity as they go about their jobs.
By knowing the location of each truck in your control you can provide updates on the road conditions, customer delays, changes in delivery times, etc and avoid having trucks stuck in an area and losing time and money for your company.
GPS truck tracking devices help increase security
One of the biggest benefits that companies receive when they install GPS truck tracking devices is that they instantly have improved security to help prevent theft and assist in recovery if a truck is stolen.
GPS truck tracking devices will notify your manager if a truck is moved that was not authorised and GPS coordinates can be provided to law enforcement officials to aid in the recovery of your valuable vehicle.
GPS truck tracking devices reduce insurance costs
Many insurance companies offer reduced premiums if tracking devices are installed. They know it’s much easier to recover stolen trucks quickly usually with little or no damage.
GPS truck tracking devices are a simple investment that provides immediate returns to all the trucks under your control and will give you reduced fuel costs, routing assistance and increased security to better manage your business.
