Why GPS Tracking Systems Have Increased In Popularity For Fleet Vehicles

Apr 23, 2008
GPS tracking devices have been in existence for many years. They have been a deterrent against theft and have been an excellent means of finding a vehicle if it was lost. GPS tracking systems have assist law enforcement in finding lost or stolen vehicles for decades.

GPS was originally created for Government use, however, when it was released to the general public, its safety features were something millions of people could not live without.

Today, with advances in technology, GPS tracking systems have been brought to a new level. They can now be installed in commercial vehicles; however, the advances that have been made are astounding.

*GPS tracking in commercial vehicles can still find any vehicle that it is installed in however there are many other functions that it can perform.

*Tracking - GPS tracking in a commercial vehicle can track any vehicle that it is installed in to find exactly where it is and how long it will take to get to its destination. This is particularly useful for delivery companies who have set schedules.

*Downtime - GPS tracking in a commercial vehicle can determine how many times a truck has stopped or what the downtime is. Truck drivers have to have a consecutive eight hours of downtime and GPS tracking can make sure that the law is being followed. Because all data can be printed out, there is a record of each vehicle.

*Speed limits - GPS tracking in a commercial vehicle can also monitor the speed of each truck to ensure that the speed laws are being followed. This is a safety feature that many companies find appealing.

*Re-routing - GPS Tracking in commercial vehicles can also offer assistance should a road or street become impassable by providing alternate routes to the same destination. By providing this service, the company saves money not only in fuel charges but also wear and tear on the vehicle.

GPS tracking has come a long way since its inception. In commercial vehicles, it has become a safety precaution that is so great that many insurance companies will offer special discounts if is installed in the vehicles.

Of course, GPS tracking in commercial vehicles is still the fastest way to find a stolen vehicle. Satellite tracking can find a missing vehicle within seconds. Sometimes those seconds can literally mean life or death to the driver.

Many over the road companies whose drivers travel long distances have installed GPS tracking as a way to insure their shipment will arrive on time and in tact.

Delivery businesses know that a delivery needs to be on time. When you have a GPS tracking system installed in your commercial vehicle, you will be notified immediately if there is a delay or detour so you can inform your client how long the delay will be and when the shipment will arrive.

You can also use the information from the GPS tracking system to load your delivery trucks, and plan out a route to deliver. You are optimizing the time you have and your driver will be able to load and unload quickly because the shipment would be loaded according to the delivery schedule.

GPS tracking in commercial vehicles has many advantages. Not only are you getting a quality hi-tech product, you are getting a product that has proven to work time after time in the real world. More and more businesses are installing GPS tracking in their commercial vehicles because of the overall performance and safety features that it has.
