Commercial fleet management
In the commercial transport scenario, it requires a great effort to manage and maintain the vehicles. The only way to ensure the safety of the fleets is by keeping a track record of their movements. It helps in tracking the location of the fleets and recording other bits of information regarding the fleet vehicle.
In order to track their fleet vehicles, government and private organisations take the help of tracking technologies such as GPS (Global Positioning System) and the latest GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System). Fleet tracking devices help companies to monitor all the movement of their fleets. They can figure out that which route the vehicle is taking and with what speed it is travelling. They even supervise the driver's behaviour.
Fleet management has become an intrinsic part of the operation of any organisation, as it helps to increase its productivity. It also keeps a check on the fuel usage, decreasing the overall operation cost.
Tracking devices have a receiver, which receives the signals sent by the satellites through tracking devices. This information is then sent to the system. Companies install fleet tracking devices to their vehicle and try to make sure that they enjoy all the benefits of the GPS fleet tracking technology.
This technology also helps in increasing the life span of a vehicle and maintains the vehicles. Fleet management also helps an organisation in curtailing its operational cost. Moreover, it also helps them to evaluate where they are losing money. Security of fleet is another crucial issue that keeps worrying the owner of any company. Using fleet vehicle tracking system makes sure that there is no unauthorised use of the any of the vehicle that belongs to their fleet. Even if their vehicle gets stolen, they can still track down the exact location of that vehicle and thus retrieve it.
Fleet security and operational costs reduction are not the only benefits of fleet tracking system. Any organisation would also prefer to know the speed, mileage, distance covered and the fuel usage by the vehicles. This can easily be calculated and recorded using the tracking systems. They send and save such data in the software installed in the system. Companies then can see the same either by using the same software or with the help of the Internet.
