What is GPS Fleet Tracking?

GPS Fleet Tracking (or simply fleet tracking) is a system that allows fleet managers to monitor and manage vehicles and other assets such as equipment and tools in real-time. In some areas, it might be referred to as an “automatic vehicle locator” (AVL) system. GPS fleet tracking systems use telematics technology to collect location data such as GPS coordinates and other vehicle-related data such as vehicle speed, fuel level, battery charge, idle time, etc..

What is a GPS Tracker?

GPS Tracker is a device installed in a vehicle (or other assets) to determine the vehicle location and to monitor its movements by utilizing the Global Positioning System (GPS). The recorded data is stored within the hardware unit when a device is offline. When the device is online, the data is transmitted to a GPS fleet tracking server via cellular internet. This allows the location and other data to be displayed to fleet managers via the telematics web portal.

Who is GPS Fleet Tracking for?

Both large and small businesses can gain operations efficiency by utilizing GPS fleet track services. Telematics technology delivers granular visibility for various industries:

  • Transportation & Logistics: Long-Haul Trucking, Short-Haul Trucking, For-hire Carriers, Passenger Transport, etc..
  • Distribution: Delivery, Retail, Food & Beverage, Private Fleets.
  • Construction: General Construction, Domestic Contractors, Highway Engineering, Equipment Management, etc..
  • Services: Landscaping, Moving, HVAC, Plumbing, Telecom Provers, Electricians, Roofing, Landscaping, HVAC, Plumbing, Waste Management, etc…
  • Public safety: Fire Departments, Law Enforcement, Road Repair Services, etc..
  • Rental industry: Monitor the performance and locations of rented vehicles/assets.
  • Oil, gas & mining: Oil, Gas, Mining, Surveying, Pipeline Construction, etc..

What are the benefits of GPS Fleet Tracking?

The potential advantages that come along with these services are practically endless. In a world where this technology is readily available, it only makes sense to capitalize on modern fleet tracking with GPS. With a fleet tracking management system in place, companies can take back control of their operations.

Fleet managers can then look at the collected location data and use it to make decisions such as: which vehicle can be dispatched, which drivers are available to assign to a route, what equipment is available for use. It also creates an opportunity to provide a better customer experience: improve delivery times and reduce wait times for customers.

4G fleet driver tracking technology is imperative for carriers who want to free up more time in their daily routine. In turn, this time can be better devoted to growing the business and expanding the current operations.

RELIABLE TRACKING HARDWARE

GPS Tracking Devices

HOS247 offers both plug-n-play & hardwired fleet tracking hardware options depending on the application. The plug-n-play device requires no professional installation and is simply plugged into a vehicle’s OBD2 port. The hardwired trackers are hidden in vehicles to prevent tampering and for theft recovery purposes.

If the vehicle is in motion, hardware collects the GPS coordinates between 30 seconds and 2 minutes. This allows fleet managers to keep a real-time eye on a vehicle’s location as well as track past locations on the route.

Yes. The vehicle data is tracked separately from the driver data, so the GPS vehicle data is always accessible regardless of who is driving or whether they are on duty.

Flexible plans whether you have 1 or 500 vehicles

How Does GPS Fleet Tracking Work?

The GPS tracking device is installed into a vehicle to determine locations in real-time via Global Positioning Systems (GPS satellites). Locations and other vehicle-related data (speed, idle time, diagnostics, etc.) are transmitted wirelessly to HOS247 servers via 4G/LTE cellular networks. The data is analyzed by the tracking system and displayed via the fleet manager portal on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Most GPS fleet driver tracking products are created to do just that — track assets via GPS. A fleet manager who has just the GPS tracking feature and is interested in other solutions, such as an electronic logging device or dispatch services, needs to look elsewhere for a new supplier that provides what they need. This could involve waiting for their contract to end so they can find a new supplier, or dealing with a variety of different suppliers, all offering individual products. This can not only be time-consuming but also expensive.Unlike those suppliers that only offer one solution, HOS247 offers a variety of solutions that can be packaged together to meet the specific needs of an individual fleet.

It isn’t just the cost of repairs that have to be accounted for when a vehicle is taken off the road — there is also the cost of downtime to account for. If you have a vehicle out of service, that turns into a driver who can’t get paid and a load that can’t be carried. Keeping vehicles in top working order and properly maintained is crucial in reducing operating costs. And the maintenance features in HOS247 GPS fleet tracking software can easily outline the condition of every vehicle in your fleet to give you the big picture of which vehicle maintenance to prioritize so you can avoid unwelcome surprises.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), regular maintenance could prevent several of the top 10 out-of-service (OOS) violations. Avoiding these violations is not only important for safety reasons but also from a financial standpoint, since the vehicle cannot be put back into service until the OOS issues have been fixed or corrected.

Compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA) scores are also impacted by poor maintenance, since violations can tarnish a company’s reputation, making them less likely to be trusted and hired for jobs.

Because HOS247 GPS fleet tracking software tracks mileage, engine hours, fuel usage and other metrics, it is easy for fleet managers to stay aware of when a vehicle is due for service. As such, they are able to budget better and avoid unnecessary expenses. It also ensures that their vehicles are in good shape for longer periods of time, boosting their return on investment. After all, regular maintenance and tune-ups prevents costlier repairs down the road.

HOS247 fleet tracking services are designed for ease-of-use and optimal productivity. It was created to help fleets get things done in an efficient manner while also boosting productivity, which in turn boosts revenue. If a driver or fleet manager has any questions after the thorough onboarding program, a multilingual support team is available 7 days a week.

As business needs change, it is only natural that the needs of a fleet will change as well. That’s why HOS247 doesn’t lock fleet managers into long-term contracts or require them to stick with software that they no longer have the need for. The HOS247 GPS fleet tracking solution is fully customizable with its range of products that can be added or removed over time.

Switch to 4G LTE GPS Fleet Tracking

Most trackers that are currently installed in commercial fleets are utilizing the old and outdated 3G network. Mobile carriers are slowly phasing out the amount of 3G coverage that they offer in order to make room for the faster 4G and LTE phones and devices on the market.

Avoid Service Interruptions

Millions of GPS trackers will need to be replaced before 3G shutdowns take effect. Carriers are urging customers to make the switch to 4G/LTE as soon as possible to avoid service disruptions. It is worth making the leap to this new technology now instead of waiting for the slower 3G versions to die out.

Get Faster Connectivity

A 4G system is known to provide faster response times and increase system connectivity. When companies need to find out exactly where their trucks are located, this faster data transfer can be extremely beneficial. 4G network that is up to 10 times faster than 3G depending on coverage.

Get Trackers That Are Viable For Years To Come

It will be years before 5G networks are fully operational nationwide. The 4G LTE network will provide the backbone for 5G connectivity while network operators develop new technology. It means 4G LTE GPS fleet tracking devices will be viable for years to come (even after 5G is rolled out).

Making the switch from a 3G fleet tracking solution to a 4G LTE option will have to come rather quickly. Fortunately, there are many benefits for those who have to make the switch. Managers and company owners that want a great value should seriously consider installing 4G/LTE GPS Trackers now. Purchasing 4G LTE GPS fleet telematics solution like that offered by HOS247 should be at the top of every commercial fleet’s to-do list.

The Importance Of Fleet Tracking Management

Small to large fleets can gain benefits by switching to an advanced fleet tracking management system. The competitive advantages that come along with fleet track services are practically endless:

Improve Safety & Compliance

Improve driving habits by restricting engine idling time and harsh cornering. Improve fleet safety by keeping track of vehicle inspection reporting and fleet maintenance.

Reduce Manual Labor & Errors

Manual data entry is a thing of the past with the IFTA mileage reporting. This reduces the risk of human errors and allows companies to perform complex calculations much faster. With just one click, office managers can quickly identify the distance traveled by a jurisdiction.

Reduced Upkeep

There used to be a time when office staff were required to keep detailed logs of how many miles each truck was driven during a given time period. Data was then used to schedule maintenance and other necessary services for each of the trucks in the fleet. With automatic logs of the miles and hours driven, trucking companies reduce the need for time-consuming paperwork and free up their time for more productive pursuits.

Prevent Theft

Modern telematics technology (GPS for fleet tracking) allows logistic managers to be able to quickly identify where each asset is located at any given time and view a location history. This serves to prevent theft when the trucks (or other vehicles/assets) are not in use.

By explaining to your drivers that you aren’t implementing fleet driver tracking because you don’t trust them, they will be more open to listening to the reasons for using it. If they understand that the end result is to be safer and more efficient, and boost revenue at the same time, they should understand that the benefits will trickle down to them in one way or another. Be transparent in your explanation of the technology and highlight all of its benefits so they don’t make any false assumptions.

HOS247 provides whatever fleet tracking software you need for the types of vehicles in your fleet. In most cases, it is just a small unit that is simply plugged into the vehicle’s OBD port. It will be hidden to prevent tampering, and it is also compatible with vehicles that might not have an OBD port.

In general, drivers know more about the vehicles they drive than the fleet managers do, as they are regularly made aware of the way it operates and any issues the vehicle may be having. Therefore, the role of drivers in regard to fleet management is highly important, and they should be relied upon as a trusted source for tracking vehicle maintenance needs. Training them how to conduct inspections before and after their route is vital not just for meeting DOT requirements, but also so they can detect warning signs that could prevent a vehicle from being put out of service.

The HOS247 fleet tracking service uses an OBDII or J-Bus connected to the ECM. It is through that connection that fleet managers can obtain fault codes and other vehicle diagnostics data.

Drivers and can use the HOS 247 software to create vehicle inspection reports. Any time a driver reports a defect in the vehicle, the fleet manager is notified in their dashboard.

The HOS247 GPS fleet tracking software relies on not only the GPS sensor but the vehicle’s odometer to log the exact distance traveled by a vehicle each day. With that data, a fleet manager can create a report using the HOS247 dashboard to get the total distance traveled by every vehicle in their fleet during any date or range of dates. This makes IFTA filing much simpler and accurate.

Exemptions can be easily claimed using a combination of the vehicle’s location history and the “distance by jurisdiction” report that’s accessible in the HOS247 dashboard.

There is not yet the ability to make the IFTA process fully automated. Nonetheless, the hardest part of the process is made much easier since the GPS fleet tracking system automatically tracks the distance traveled by vehicles in each jurisdiction.
