What Is GPS Vehicle Tracking and Why Do You Need It?

GPS, or Global Positioning Satellite, is a modern telematics system that uses a transmitter and a network of satellites to track the position of an object. Today, GPS tracking and other telematics solutions have become an indispensable part of everyday life—both for individuals and businesses.

Modern GPS tracking hardware and fleet tracking software solutions have a variety of capabilities that help fleet managers and companies reduce costs, increase operational efficiency, and improve safety.

How Can I Use Telematics Systems Like GPS Fleet Tracking?

There are many industries that leverage fleet management software and GPS tracking solutions for a variety of tasks. Here are a few examples of the ways that companies can use fleet management software and GPS tracker hardware:

Construction Industry

Construction companies use GPS vehicle tracking on heavy construction equipment like cranes, bulldozers, cement mixers, and the like to track when construction vehicles are turned on or off, when vehicles enter or leave the construction zone, and how many hours vehicles have been in service since their last maintenance check. This can help optimize equipment use, prevent theft, and improve maintenance scheduling.

Public Safety Enforcement

First responders often use vehicle-mounted GPS tracking devices to monitor where police vehicles, ambulances, and fire trucks are at all times. Using road mapping software in conjunction with GPS tracking data, 911 dispatchers can see where the closest emergency responders are and direct them to the site of a call. Additionally, GPS fleet management software can help with route optimization—helping emergency vehicles avoid traffic jams to improve speed of response to 911 calls.

Transportation Industry/Truck Fleets

Telematics systems are often used to manage fleets of trucks and other delivery vehicles. With GPS, drivers can find the fastest routes to their destinations and avoid traffic jams. Additionally, fleet managers can use geofencing by corridor to keep their drivers from wandering off-route, track driving behaviors (like speeding and hard braking) to improve driver safety, and monitor conditions in climate-controlled storage compartments.

Oil and Gas Industry

Oil and gas companies often use GPS fleet management solutions to help them maximize driver safety for their fuel delivery trucks and to prevent the theft of fuel trucks (and their valuable cargo). By tracking driver habits, companies in the petroleum industry can identify opportunities for improving driver skills (and help prevent costly accidents). By using GPS location tracking, oil and gas companies can quickly locate stolen vehicles and recover them.
