Looking for an edge to beat out the competition? By having GPS truck tracking devices installed in truck fleet your company will gain an advantage on the competition and improve your services in the market. Here’s how that can be achieved:
1) GPS truck trackers reduce insurance expenses
Reducing expenses is one of the first benefits truck fleets receive after when they install GPS truck trackers in their trucks.
Insurance companies will lower the cost of insurance when owners take active measures to protect their vehicle assets. Lower insurance premiums is money in the bank for fleet companies.
2) Reduce loss due to theft
GPS truck trackers reduce the likelihood for theft of the truck and valuable cargo by giving your fleet manager the tools needed to monitor trucks while they are in the field. This means the fleet manager know where each truck is and can call drivers if a truck has been stationery for an extended time, or parked in a high-risk area.
3) Maximise truck usage in the field
Besides fuel and maintenance costs which are variable depending on the mileage for each truck, it makes sense to maximise the usage of the truck through improved route management.
Your truck fleet manager will have a full usage reports on each truck and be able to improve truck asset usage when trip data is recorded automatically through the GPS truck trackers.
4) Stop unauthorised usage
For even greater protection, GPS truck trackers can be also be paired with radio frequency identification (RFID) features which prevents unauthorised drivers from taking the truck.
RFID is an identification tool that allows the truck fleet manager to match a driver with a specific truck and allows only that driver to use that truck. Also too – the driver’s route, drive time, distance travel and driving behaviour will be logged against that driver for future reference.
With the fleetminder Live Tracking system, the fleet operator can even go back as far as six months to review any day or month.
With GPS truck trackers installed in each of your fleet vehicles you will gain four valuable benefits that can give you an edge in the business and help you to beat out the competition.
