GPS fleet tracking can cut costs and headaches while improving customer service and productivity, regardless of the size of your company.

The technology, which continues to evolve, gives businesses the ability to monitor drivers’ speeds, optimize routes, monitor temperatures of refrigerated units, create elogs, and integrate with Google maps. 

Safety Track has GPS solutions to fit any business, regardless of the fleet size or tracking needs. Here is a list of the ways GPS tracking can make fleet management more manageable and more profitable for your company

GPS tracking can save money

Whether your company has 10 or 10,000 trucks, unauthorized vehicle usage, and excess fuel usage can add up.

Bad driver habits such as extra-long lunches or detours off the route also can lead to unhappy customers and more safety incidents. That’s why a smart GPS tracking system makes sense.

Also, GPS tracking can save money on insurance, fuel costs, and lawsuits.

Safety Track offers several Asset Tracking System solutions to match your business needs. Below, we have outlined a few.

The Simple Tracking System

Safety Track’s Simple Tracking System is perfect for smaller businesses that want an easy-to-install system that can deliver real-time data like more expensive systems.

Reports include custom maintenance schedules; engine hours; start/stop times; speed; and vehicle location in real time with multiple mapping view options.

The Complete GPS Tracking System

The Complete GPS Tracking System was designed as a universal solution for visibility 24 hours a day, seven days a week,  and continuous tracking. This system includes internal antennas, full reporting capabilities, and integrated Google maps. It also provides maintenance, speeding, and idling alerts that are sent directly to a phone as well as a full year’s history on each vehicle.

The Advance GPS Fleet Tracking System

This system is 100 percent Web-based and the most popular fleet management tool among Safety Track clients. It includes the same reports as the Complete Tracking System; alert notifications via phone or email; dispatch capabilities including itineraries, rerouting; and job and status filtering. In addition, the mapping capabilities include real-time updates with live traffic feeds and Google street view.

The Enterprise Tracking System

This system allows larger fleet or logistics companies to users to track, communicate, and monitor vital critical information such as real-time engine diagnostics and electronic driver logs. 

The Connected Car Enterprise Solution, meanwhile, can transform any passenger car into a fully connected car. That means it has a full GPS tracking suite that monitors driver position, speed, heading, and driving behavior.

Other valuable GPS tracking features

Live trailer tracking is a crucial feature for logistics companies in the competitive commercial trucking business. For instance, tracking can provide refrigerator trailer temperature monitoring for cold hauling. 

Safety Track’s electronic driver log system, meanwhile, ensures drivers comply with federal and state regulations regarding rest breaks, restarts, and sleeper berth provisions. An advanced alerting system also notifies users before issues occur.

An effective GPS system can ultimately help you prevent labor fraud, reduce speeding, lower excessive idling, and unauthorized vehicle usage.
