One of the more convenient things about modern life is that we can have almost anything we need delivered right to our door. However, for those who live in public neighborhoods, anyone can walk by our front door and potentially steal a package. Especially in the holiday season, porch pirates are a rampant problem. Luckily, experts have designed ways to reduce the likelihood of porch pirates and catch them if they do run off with your package.

In a news release published on 12/2/2021, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) encouraged the public to protect their trucks, tools and equipment with a GPS monitoring device.

Hurricanes can create roadblocks and communication obstacles for anyone, including fleet drivers. Even if your truck fleet has successfully weathered hurricanes or less severe storms well in the past, these storms bring with them powerful winds and torrential rain, capable of  knocking out power, tearing down buildings, and causing storm surges up to 20 feet.

As a fleet manager that needs to keep their fleet on the road to make deliveries or to get to their client for a job, it’s essential you’re able to optimize routes all the time, but especially at times of severe storms, like hurricanes, that can wreak havoc on the roadways.
