What is GPS fleet tracking?

If you’re a fleet owner/operator, it’s important to stay organized when it comes to your fleet. GPS fleet tracking is one of many management tools used to manage drivers and their fleet vehicles.

So how does it work? GPS fleet tracking involves using a GPS device on vehicles to collect data in real time, such as speed, location, etc. This information may either be transmitted in real time through a cellular network or downloaded manually from the device itself. This GPS technology gets combined with telematics, which contains engine data such as vehicle speed, idling time, fuel consumption, and more – to create a cohesive GPS fleet management system.

Fleet owners can use all of this data to set alerts, controls, and notifications relating to, but not limited to: vehicle maintenance issues, driver behavior, traffic alerts, fuel usage, and more. Some questions fleet owners may ask themselves when searching for a fleet management system is:

  1. What do you want to achieve with a GPS fleet management system?
  2. How many vehicles are you tracking?
  3. What is your budget?
  4. What type of information and data do you want to track?

As a whole, GPS fleet tracking allows fleet owners the greatest control over their fleet. It allows them to make smarter and strategic business decisions using real-time data, improves their fleet’s safety and efficiency, and can save valuable time.
