Vehicle Tracking benefits

  • Fuel savings and reduced emissions.
  • Reduced total mileage resulting from more efficient routing.
  • The use of fewer vehicles while delivering a better level of service or delivery of goods.
  • Driver performance improvement - instantaneous in-cab driver feedback and highly effective driver de-brief reports.
  • Lone worker safety.
  • 24/7 video monitoring of load and tailgate area.
  • Modular onboard camera system to help protect the driver, passengers and other road users.

So, what is Vehicle Tracking and what the benefits are from using one for my fleet?

A vehicle tracking system can be described as follows:
A centrally managed hub collects and collates the information from a fleet in real time and makes it available to all transport offices via a simple Internet connection.

Two-way communications between drivers and their offices to react to and control events as they unfold throughout the day and a system recording all fleet activity over time.
An existing scheduling or planning system can be used to feed initially planned routes into the system.

A transport manager has all the information available to see the entire fleet, the work it must perform, how the day is developing, and how well objectives are being met.

Improved control over transport gives senior management the ability to balance service performance, transport costs and help develop a sustainable business.

Operators are able to significantly reduce their carbon footprint while both increasing service performance and reducing cost through the introduction of our systems. Managers gain clear insight into operational performance and trends to enable continuous improvement to be measured and monitored.

In terms of Corporate Responsibility a vehicle tracking system reduces the environmental impact of the organisation and improves sustainability with a reduced carbon footprint by a combination of factors.
