Canadian Truck Fleet Tracking Software to Increase Productivity

GPS tracking is an indispensable tool for fleet businesses as it provides managers with information about the real-time location of vehicles and other assets, helping motor carriers effectively monitor their fleets and optimize processes. Canadian truck fleet tracking uses Global Positioning Systems (GPS satellites) to collect location data and other vehicle-related information such as speed, idling, fault codes, etc. This data is wirelessly transmitted to servers through 4G/LTE cellular networks and made available for the fleet manager to analyze. In this article, we will learn about the benefits of tracking systems and help you choose the right one for your business.

GPS Features That Help Your Business Thrive 

GPS features may significantly improve your work conditions by streamlining workflows, thus boosting productivity and vehicle safety. The most important features you should get with Canadian truck fleet tracking packages are:

  • Vehicle maintenance. This built-in management system makes vehicle’s maintenance easy. From oil changes and tire rotations to warranty expirations and license renewals, this service automatically schedules maintenance events based on the vehicle’s kms driven, hours of usage, and records of all past service history. 
  • Fault code detection. The system notifies the driver about malfunctions that interfere with the vehicle’s functioning by generating a specific trouble code and transmitting the alert to the vehicle’s instrument panel as a warning light. This alert can be delivered directly to the fleet manager or the maintenance department in vehicles equipped with a telematics system.
  • Idle reporting. Idling may result in significant fuel wattage, meaning extra expenses for motor carriers. Customized reports for idling, speeding and rapid acceleration help fleet managers timely spot problems and curb idling behavior in drivers to save on fuel costs.
  • IFTA calculations. This feature helps reduce human error and audit risk by automating complex IFTA calculations for fuel tax reporting.

Should Your GPS Be Integrated with an ELD? 

If you are an owner of a commercial motor vehicle fleet, your vehicles may be subject to the Transport Canada regulations related to the ELD law. According to the rule, most commercial vehicle drivers who must maintain records of duty status (RODS) must do so with an electronic logging device. The mandate allows limited exemptions; among them are: 

  • Drivers who operate under the short-haul exemption (the 160 km radius).
  • Drivers of vehicles under a rental agreement of no more than 30 days.
  • Drivers of vehicles manufactured before 2000.
  • Motor carriers who operate under a federal permit issued by a provincial director.

If your operations do not qualify for an exemption, an ELD-Integrated GPS system might be advisable to avoid dealing with different fleet management providers. Remember to check user reviews and official sources, like the list of Transport Canada-approved ELD devices to find the best option for your trucking business.
