GPS tracker: Increasing summer savings
Being a manager of a trucking company means that at some point you’ve probably heard about GPS tracker devices. You may have also heard about the thousands of dollars other trucking companies have saved simply by investing in these wonderful devices. The fact is that there are so many advantages that the GPS tracker software awards to the trucking industry that we simply had to split this series into two parts! Today, we’re going to be honing in on the true ROI benefits for truckers involving savings in gasoline expenses and improving scheduled routes.
1.) Saving On Gasoline Expenses: When you think about ways to cut down on gas usage driving less may be the first thing that comes to mind. How do you achieve this goal when you’re a trucking company? The answer is simple with GPS tracker devices. With the live map drivers don’t have to worry about getting lost, therefore; there is no time wasted backtracking. In other words, that means there are no wasted miles and no wasted gasoline. If your trucking team includes a dispatcher, two-way communication is also available to help keep your truckers on the right path. In addition to cutting down on mileage, idling can be monitored via alerts to cut down on this gas-guzzling habit.
2.) Improving The Scheduled Routes: As your truckers journey out on their daily routes they’re bound to hit traffic and chances are likely that there will be construction somewhere. Planning out scheduled routes ahead of time not only improves efficiency, but it can also reduce vehicle wear and tear. GPS tracker devices have the built in capability of allowing users to program the safest routes while working around traffic conditions and other road hazards. Since the system is live, if traffic congestion occurs later on, the route can easily be manipulated to work around those issues as the arise.
Once trucking companies take initiative to invest in GPS tracker devices, they quickly see the ROI and often question why they didn’t agree to the change sooner. If you’re still uncertain about the benefits you could receive from these devices, stay tuned for part two to learn a little more. If you’re ready to start increasing your summer savings, you’ve come to the right place.
