GPS: Serious Solutions to Trucking Challenges

Posted in GPS Tracking Benefits on October 13th, 2011

Track What Matters is excited about attending the 2011 American Trucking Associations Management Conference & Exhibition in Grapevine, Texas. This major event gathers the biggest names in the trucking industry for massive doses of networking, a look at some of the most impressive vehicles on the road, and exciting looks at the latest and greatest in trucking tech. But perhaps most importantly, the event features serious discussions of the challenges faced by modern trucking companies and the industry in general. We wouldn’t miss it — because we know we can help.

What are some of these challenges? A glance at the brochure yields discussion topics such as how driver data can reduce crashes, fuel economy issues, distracted driving and others. The adoption and implementation of GPS tracking systems can make a positive impact in all of these areas. A few examples:

  • Crash-prone drivers -  Poor or dangerous driving behaviors have been shown to increase the risk of crashes, potentially costing a trucking company huge amounts in repaired or replaced vehicles, traffic tickets and possible lawsuits to collect damages. GPS tracking allows you to see how fast your drivers are going. And when drivers know you ‘re watching, they naturally respond by driving more safely.
  • Distracted driving – Even the most skilled, careful drivers face tons of potential distractions on the road, including the need to check maps or read street signs if they get lost. GPS frees drivers of the need to navigate the old, hard, dangerous way.
  • Fuel economy – Trucks can save a lot of gas when they follow the most efficient routes. If you can see how your drivers are getting from stop to stop, you can control how much gas they burn (not to mention how fast they burn it — see “crash-prone!”)

Keep on trucking!
