Drivers aren’t the only people affected by traffic jams. These jam-packed roads affect everyone from managers to dispatchers. Who’s especially affected are the trucking industry’s CEOs and CFOs who are dealing with the almost $50 billion in industry losses every year due to their trucks being stopped for long periods every day.

This figure was derived from a study conducted by the American Trucking Research Institute (ATRI). Their study revealed that around 728 million work-productivity hours were lost each year because of trucks being slowed down and stuck in the Top 100 traffic jam locations. This equates to over 260,000 truck drivers not being able to drive for one year.

Among the Top 100 traffic jam locations are some of the nation’s major cities such as:

  • Boston
  • New York
  • Houston
  • Atlanta
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Philadelphia
  • Chicago
  • Dallas-Fort Worth

However, there was just about every major market that found its way on the Top 100 list.

As much complaining that people do about the shortcomings of highway infrastructure and the nation’s slow progress of expansion and road construction, there doesn’t look to be any changes to the situation happening anytime soon.

Thankfully, with GPS fleet tracking, managers and fleet drivers can avoid traffic jam locations by being able to plan their routes around them. Optimum routing with GPS tracking for fleets can help dispatchers, drivers and managers be more productive and efficient.

Some optimum routing decisions could come from knowing where there are potential alternative routes around traffic-jammed roads if these alternatives have lower speed limits or stop lights or if it would even be quicker for the driver to endure the traffic jams instead.

There are many advantages of GPS fleet tracking which include:

  • Reducing wasted driver time.
  • Reducing fuel burn.
  • Ensuring on-time deliveries.
  • Improving customer service.
  • Reducing maintenance costs.
  • Reducing driver frustration.

Avoiding traffic jams may also lessen the risk of your drivers being involved in accidents that would lead to costly repairs and higher insurance rates.

Although GPS fleet tracking technology can’t entirely solve the issue, it can reduce the amount of time that drivers have to sit in jams and waste productive hours. It can even help to plan better routing systems to help drivers avoid traffic jams altogether.

Your pontoon boat is a source of great fun during the warmer days throughout the years. It is a place for family gatherings, quiet times away from the world, the perfect spot for fishing, and it can be a floating party for friends and family alike. Chances are that if you’ve purchased a pontoon boat for your family you have made similar plans in your mind.

What you may not know, is that GPS tracking can help you improve on most of your plans and make owning a pontoon boat much more enjoyable long-term. These are a few ways GPS tracking can help.

Track Pontoon Boat Location

Depending on your situation, you may leave your boat in the water for the season or you may have it on a trailer whenever you’re not actively in the water enjoying your pontoon boat. GPS tracking allows you the opportunity to set up alerts that notify you instantly if the boat leaves its intended location. This means that you are instantly notified if thefts occur so you can take action and recover your boat – whether the theft occurs on land or in the water.

Find Fish Better

GPS and fishfinders work hand in hand to take you where the fish are congregating. This can help you bring in bigger hauls and have more fun when fishing with the family. Pontoons are versatile and allow families to enjoy many activities, including fishing, while on the water. GPS guided fish finders help you locate new fishing holes and navigate back to favorite fish hot spots again and again.

Coordinate Meetups with Other Boaters

Pontoon boating is often a community activity enjoyed by families of all sizes. Many family groups own multiple pontoon boats between them allowing to meet up on the water for extended family gatherings. GPS allows you to send your exact coordinates so that everyone can find you quickly and easily.

Monitor Bilge Pumps Remotely

If you leave your boat unattended in the water for any length of time – hours, days, or even weeks at a time, then a bilge pump problem can become a big problem for your boat fast. If your GPS tracking system is a hardwired system, you can easily add a float switch that monitors bilge level and sends alerts to your phone or email if there is a problem.

Whether you’re looking to up your game on the water, protect your possessions, or improve your odds of recovering your pontoon if a theft occurs, GPS tracking is the perfect solution for your pontoon boat.

Exotic cars are the kinds of cars dreams are made of. From walls adorned with images of sexy machines with curves in all the right places to showrooms lined with cars sporting six and seven-digit price tags, exotic cars capture the imagination in a way that stately sedans, SUVs, and minivans will never manage to do.

But it’s not all about sex appeal and aesthetic beauty. These cars are beasts that offer quite a bit of substance under the hood too. In fact, today’s exotic cars are such joys to drive because of what’s under the hood acting as a catalyst for speed and for performance.

Unfortunately, most exotic cars come with price tags that are equally exotic and out of reach for the average consumer. This means that if you have one of these beauties, you’ve made quite an investment – and worked long and hard – to get there. It’s important to protect that investment with GPS car tracking. These are just a few ways GPS tracking for exotic cars can help you protect your investment in the car of your dreams.

Text Notifications When Your Car is in Use During “Sleep” Times

You can designate sleep times for your car and receive a text message, email, or other alert any time your car is activated outside of these hours. This allows you to be notified if your teens decide to go for a joyride, if your car is stolen, or in countless other scenarios where your car is operating and you’re not behind the wheel.

Why does this matter?

It saves precious minutes – or even hours – if your car is stolen between the actual theft and your discovery of the theft. This time can mean the difference between the recovery of your car intact or in a bunch of little pieces to be sold at a chop shop.

Real Time Tracking

If your exotic car is taken, GPS tracking for exotic cars allows law enforcement to track the location of your car in real time so they can recovery your vehicle as quickly and safely as possible.

Real time tracking with GPS also allows you to know exactly where family members are when they are using your exotic car. Whether you’ve given the car as a gift to someone you love or you’re letting them borrow it for the night, it’s a comfort to know you can track their locations and respond quickly if accidents and other problems occur.

You don’t buy an exotic car on a whim. You’ve put a lot of thought into the purchase. Protect that purchase – and the car (and people) you love – by investing in GPS tracking.
