GPS trackers: Benefits for safe handling
Getting the right product to the right place at the right time while controlling costs is a tough job for any transport company. For fleet companies transferring corrosive, combustible, poisonous, temperature-sensitive, or otherwise questionable materials, a new level of safety is required. An exceptionally high level of quality precision has to go into the handling of all chemical transports. Not only are the materials worthy of monitoring, but the safety of your drivers is critical. GPS trackers are a great way to improve your entire fleet’s security.
Here are 2 ways GPS trackers come through for chemical transportation companies:
1.) Monitoring drivers: You can keep track of where your drivers are located with their hazardous cargo by viewing each active vehicle thanks to GPS trackers with live, real-time maps. You can also make use of alerts and reports to screen for unsafe driving behaviors (such as speeding and aggressive driving).
2.) Following laws: Trucking industries of any kind have to obey the law and GPS trackers can help. By calculating start/stop times it’s easy to make certain that company drivers don’t go over their scheduled work hours resulting in a violation of the labor laws. In the reports section you have the control to change the minimum stop time making it possible to customize the recorded data to fit your drivers’ delivery schedules.
When you’re trucks are carrying chemicals it’s important to make sure that your drivers are safe. It’s your responsibility as a fleet owner or manager to know your drivers are safe and handling their workload as smoothly as possible. With GPS trackers a lot of your bases will be covered leaving your most talented workers to only worry about driving and handling the chemicals properly on site.
