How To Benefit From The Usage Of GPS Tracker Routes

GPS tracker: Paths made simple

As a fleet business owner, you already know that you need an intelligent way to optimize your drivers’ routes on a daily basis. Having something that systematically calculates and displays routed paths in real-time is one of the most cost-effective, customer-friendly technologies. GPS tracker devices have the capability to provide convenient, live maps with planned routes. There are a few ways you can utilize the map to view your routes in the most optimal, beneficial way.

First, you have to create the routes you desire your drivers to take. Logging in is the first step and then simply by clicking on the Dispatch/Routing tab and Routing button you will see a pop up of all routes in your list. If there aren’t any, it only takes minutes to create one! Then, you’re well on your way to viewing all the paths for your drivers.

1.) Street views: There isn’t just one map view to see routes how you want to see them. There is a simple map view that is basic, a birdseye view, a satellite view and a hybrid view. Having these customized options provides effective, intuitive GPS tracker usage for managers, drivers and dispatchers.

2.) Zoomed out: Upon entering the GPS tracker system, the map usually defaults as being “zoomed out”. This allows a nationwide or worldwide view of all your fleets and the routes you’ve created.

3.) Zoomed in: By zooming in on a specific location on the GPS tracker screen, you can get a more precise view and by checking the Small Icons box on map controls, you will even be able to distinguish the difference between any vehicles that may be slightly overlapping on the same routes.

Why are planned routes so helpful? When you need drivers to take a specific path due to road blockages or detours, routes become super helpful. You can even go as far as to set up variations or how far out from the set path it will take before an alert is sent to management.

Whether you’re in the delivery industry, the head of a maintenance crew or some other fleet company, the fact is that being on time is essential and having planned routes can help accomplish that goal. Not only do GPS tracker routes help management to know vehicles are moving as they should be, but there is an added measure of security so that vital issues can be attacked right away.

Drivers Using GPS Tracking To Deliver Gifts: Part 2

GPS tracking: Helping at Christmas time

Oh what fun it is to drive in a… truck with GPS tracking!” Well, we know that’s not how the song really goes, but if you had gifts under the tree this year there just might be a chance that a delivery driver used GPS tracking to get one or more of those gifts there timely. GPS tracking is a wonderful technology that surely helped a lot of delivery drivers during this holiday season. They could have helped them navigate through bad weather and receive turn-by-turn directions from dispatching to get through the clearest, safest route.

There are few more ways we can imagine that delivery drivers made use of GPS tracking services. For example, maintenance reminders for the company vehicles. Christmas time is definitely not a good time for trucks to break down. With GPS tracking maintenance alerts, the managers are able to maintain the health of the trucks all through the year so that they are in tip-top shape for the biggest delivery time of the year. If a hiccup did occur for a reason outside of the driver’s control, the GPS tracking system would send alert back to management or dispatching so that help could be sent right away.

Another GPS tracking service that delivery drivers make good use of is geofencing. The option for geofence set-up is perfect for Christmas time in several ways. First, setting a perimeter around the lot where company trucks are parked at night adds security to the assets, ensuring that the gifts can continue to be delivered. If anyone should be foolish enough to steal a truck, the unsanctioned perimeter breach would set off an alert. GPS tracking would be responsible for giving delivery companies a substantial amount of time to take appropriate action.

GPS tracking geofences and vehicle maintenance reminders sure are life savers around Christmas time! We hope all the parents who purchased online gifts received everything in a timely manner. We also hope that all the delivery drivers made their rounds safely and are also able to enjoy time with their own families. Thanks to the technology of GPS tracking, delivery drivers act as Santa and are able to make lots of children happy.

On behalf of US Fleet Tracking, have a very Merry Christmas!

One of the best benefits for delivery drivers is the option for dispatching to give turn-by-turn directions to each house. Say goodbye to getting lost!
