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!

Drivers Using GPS Tracking To Deliver Gifts: Part 1

GPS tracking: Helping at Christmas time

Most people know the old story about how Santa delivers gifts to every good boy and girl on Christmas day, but how many people really stop to think about the reality of gift delivery? Delivery drivers are like the real life version of Santa. Think about it! Tons of people order gifts online these days and all of those orders have to be delivered by someone. Have you ever considered just how difficult a delivery driver’s job is, especially around Christmas time? What could help get delivery drivers to all their locations safely and in a timely manner? For many, the answer is GPS tracking. A lot of delivery drivers will tell you that without GPS tracking, they’d be truly lost and not just literally!

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! GPS tracking being installed in each vehicle means that these Santa-like drivers will never have to depend on an outdated map to arrive to each customer’s home or delivery location. Having live maps with advanced routing options decreases the chance of wasted time.

Another great benefit is the weather overlay feature. With this technology, weather delays do not have to cause setbacks for delivery drivers. GPS tracking weather updates allow delivery drivers to navigate around harsh storms. Interactive maps allow dispatchers and managers to also see where drivers might have a hard time navigating and can easily re-route drivers.

Timeliness and safety are both key factors in making sure that delivery drivers get the goods where they need to be! These are just a few ways GPS tracking is helping around Christmas time. Drivers that use GPS tracking just seem to have a better time when it comes to delivering all those gifts. If your delivery company hasn’t used GPS tracking before, but you’d like to consider having them for next year, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
