Fleet tracking has become more and more popular with businesses across the country and North Wales, giving customers a live and up-to-date whereabouts of their parcels, food and taxis.
But what is Vehicle Fleet Tracking?
Fleet tracking is a management system that uses GPS (Global Positioning System), to monitor and track activity including vehicles, workers and equipment. Known as Vehicle Fleet Tracking, it generally comprises of a collection of cars, vans or trucks that is part of one company or group.
Fleet tracking collects information from telematics technology in real time so that fleet managers can make strategic decisions about operations in the business. These may include, whether another vehicle will need to be dispatched to a new job or locating the nearest vehicle in a specific area, or a workers whereabouts.
