Shippers would like to provide their clients with correct information on where their containers are while en-route in an efficient and seamless way.

Importers would like to make sure the items they’re bringing into countries arrive complete, securely and intact. They also would like to know the exact time they’ll arrive and when they can have them picked up. The simplest way of securing and tracking shipping containers, portable storage units and reefers is through GPS tracking. You simply login to the dashboard of your GPS tracking device and you can monitor the container anywhere in the world in real-time.

Governments want to make sure cargo that arrives on land is taxed properly and there’s no “leakage” during transit. Additionally, they want to ensure there are no dangerous items being smuggled into the country.

These are several uses for moving and storage containers and how GPS fleet tracking can help keep them protected. There are many more benefits of GPS tracking, including the following below.

Chances are you’ve had your fair use of modern technology and GPS car tracking is likely familiar to you along with its usefulness for mobile devices and vehicles. However, “telematics” is a less well-known term becoming quite popular in fleet companies. And it can be a challenge to distinguish between the two if you’re not familiar with their unique processes and characteristics. Here, you’ll see GPS tracking and telematic’s roles in the fleet industry.

Difference Between GPS and Telematics

You are probably aware GPS uses satellite technology for tracking locations and other relevant device or vehicle data. Drivers use it frequently to help them find different destinations while they respond to service requests or make deliveries.

Telematics, on the other hand, uses telecommunications and GPS technology for gathering and reporting a large scope of data. Many telematics systems have tracking devices that will gather data on drivers:

  • Location
  • Braking
  • Acceleration
  • Idling
  • And more

The data is then sent back to the user. With telematics, you can monitor your drivers’ driving behaviors and the location of your company vehicles at all times. A telematics system will provide you with accurate, live data within seconds regardless of whether you’re responsible for a couple of vehicles or a whole fleet of vehicles.

Teenage drivers have a greater crash risk than experienced adults. Community and legislative  outreach techniques have tried to decrease this risk, but were left with mixed results.

Over the past decade, the number of teens in the U.S. killed driving smaller, older vehicles has stayed almost unchanged, according to an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study.

During the years 2013 through 2017, over a quarter of teenage drivers killed in crashes were driving mini, micro or small cars. Almost two-thirds were behind the wheel of 6-15-year old vehicles which indicates nearly no change when you compare it with 2008 through 2012. In both time periods, adults fatally injured crashed in larger, newer vehicles a lot more frequently than teenagers.
