Do You Have These Five Problems GPS Fleet Tracking Can Solve?

7 Mar 2018

Different fleets have a variety of problems. Any one of these problems can cost you time or money. In some cases, the problems may cost you both. In worst case scenarios, they can cost you valuable customers and damage your reputation. While GPS fleet tracking can’t solve all fleet problems, these are five problems it can help you solve.

  1. Wasted Time

Are your drivers spending company time and resources on personal errands? Are they napping on the job? Are they simply taking longer than they should to complete certain jobs? GPS fleet tracking can allow you to keep a closer eye on what your drivers are doing when you aren’t around. This improves driver accountability and helps you reduce labor costs significantly – while increasing customer satisfaction and retention.

  1. Wasted Fuel

Fuel is a huge expense for fleets. Fuel is necessary in your business, but often wasted in a variety of ways – many of which can be aided with an effective GPS fleet tracking system, including fuel wasted by excessive idling, inefficient routing, traffic congestion, and drivers deviating from their assigned routes. You can not only passively monitor these things looking for signs of waste, but also actively track them by setting up text alerts when idling time exceeds a certain number of minutes or anytime drivers deviate from their routes.

  1. Preventable Breakdowns

Perhaps the biggest headache for fleets are breakdowns resulting from overlooked of missed maintenance. These are what you would call preventable breakdowns and they not only take your vehicles out of service, but they also place an additional burden on other fleet vehicles while repairs are being made.

GPS fleet tracking systems can schedule routine maintenance so that many of these preventable breakdowns are actually prevented, keeping your trucks on the road and in service. Additionally, by taking care of routine maintenance, you can extend the life and productivity of your vehicles by years.

  1. Theft

Theft is a bigger problem than many fleet owners care to admit. GPS tracking can be beneficial in helping to catch thieves in the act in more ways than one. Not only can it help detect unplanned stops for things to be offloaded from your vehicles and detect the theft of your vehicles in real time, but it can also be used to track small GPS devices loaded in with targeted freight – allowing you to track where the merchandise goes so you can coordinate with law enforcement for prompt recovery.

  1. High Insurance Premiums

Believe it or not, GPS tracking can cut your insurance premiums by up to 15 percent off the top. That’s before you begin reaping the benefits of safer driving practices, fewer accidents, lower incidents of theft, and better maintenance – which all help to cut insurance premiums over time.

These are just five problems GPS fleet tracking can help your fleet solve. There are countless other benefits it stands to offers as well. Aren’t you ready to see what it can do for your fleet?
