Cold-Weather Industries GPS Fleet Tracking Can Help

8 Jan 2018

No matter which cold-weather industry you call your own, GPS fleet tracking can help you improve productivity and profit with a wide range of tools designed to help you manage your fleet more efficiently. From cutting fuel costs to reducing overtime, to improving customer satisfaction and retention, GPS fleet tracking services are top choices for helping you accomplish your goals for this winter and beyond.

These are just a few of many industries that can specifically benefit from GPS fleet tracking tools.

Salt Supply Companies

In cold-weather climates where snow and ice are frequent hazards on the road, salt is a precious commodity. In fact, NBCNews reports that 43 percent of ice sold in the U.S. is sold for the purpose of de-icing highways. When municipalities call in need of salt, it is up to your drivers to make the deliveries – no matter what Mother Nature has in store.

GPS fleet tracking can help you identify the most efficient routes, avoid road hazards, and steer clear of the worst weather systems heading your way. You can also use GPS tracking to allow cities and counties eagerly awaiting their salt supplies to track your drivers’ progress, so they know exactly when to expect their deliveries.

Furnace Repair Services

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated person anywhere during winter is the furnace repair man or woman when someone’s furnace is on the fritz. There are few things more frustrating than facing a cold snap when the furnace goes out of whack. Appointment windows in the past have been more guidelines than windows and you can make your customers extremely happy by giving them highly specific and accurate appointment windows for their furnace repair services.

Using GPS to plan routes creates greater efficiency and improves driver accountability to the timelines provided to them. More importantly, GPS systems can notify HVAC customers immediately if there is the risk of a delay due to unforeseen circumstances.


While not a cold-weather specific industry, plumbers are frequently called out to handle burst pipes and other plumbing problems that are exacerbated by the cold. The ability to respond to the right location in a timely manner will earn you brownie points with all your customers and make you a true hero for many families.

You don’t have to have a large fleet of trucks operating during winter months to enjoy many benefits of GPS fleet tracking. In fact, one or two trucks that are improving efficiency and customer satisfaction can build your profits and your profile in the community so that next winter, you may need to purchase additional vehicles to meet new demand.
