USA Truck Tracking System 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. USA truck 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.

Benefits of HOS247 4G GPS Tracking System

  • Intuitive software. The fleet manager portal was designed to facilitate the system’s implementation, eliminating the need for training and helping managers automate their tasks.
  • Longer vehicle lifespan. From scheduled maintenance routines and vehicle diagnostics prolonging vehicles’ life cycle to idle reporting that indicates risky driving patterns, the HOS247 tracking system helps keep your fleet in top shape and maximize your investment. 
  • Increased fleet security. HOS247 USA truck tracking notifies managers in case a truck is driven to an unauthorized location or has been involved in an accident. The hidden trackers can also help locate stolen vehicles and recover assets.
  • Speeding and idling control to cut fuel costs. With the HOS247 GPS system of real-time alerts, fleets can find out about speeding or excessive idling via the web-portal. This allows managers to take action and considerably reduce fuel expenses. 
  • Vehicle maintenance. The system sends an alert when a vehicle is due for maintenance to prevent unexpected breakages. Thus, motor carriers may avoid costly repairs. 
  • Improved communication with clients.

GPS Features That Help Your Business Thrive 

GPS features may significantly improve your work conditions by streamlining workflows, thus boosting productivity and vehicle safety. USA truck tracking can offer the following benefits when paired with ELD:

  • 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 mileage, 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 mileage calculations. This feature helps reduce human error and audit risk by automating complex IFTA state mileage 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 FMCSA 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 rule applies not only to United States-based drivers but also to Canada- and Mexico-domiciled operators. The mandate allows limited exemptions; among them are: 

  • Drivers who operate under the short-haul exemption (the 150 air-mile radius). 
  • Drivers who keep RODS for no more than eight days out of every 30-day period. 
  • Drivers who conduct drive-away-tow-away operations, in which the vehicle being driven is the product being delivered.
  • Drivers of vehicles with engines manufactured before 2000. 

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 FMCSA-approved ELD devices to find the best option for your trucking business. Keep in mind that, although all the devices registered with FMCSA are expected to be compliant with the technical specifications in the mandate, the Administration does not verify that is the case. When devices are repeatedly reported as malfunctioning or not compliant and the issues are not resolved, the FMCSA can remove the provider from the list.
