Incorporating a GPS tracking platform into your fleet operations is a big step toward improving efficiency and reducing costs. Systems like those from GPS Trackit offer everything from better routing to improved fuel economy and reduced wear-and-tear from aggressive driving. But adopting those systems can also present a cultural change for your drivers. Make the transition carefully and correctly and you can increase your crew’s motivation and engagement. Skip some steps and you risk building a culture of suspicion and distrust. 

Follow these steps to set up an employee GPS tracking policy that will make it easier to achieve your goals.

It wasn’t so many years ago that a phone was just a phone—not a smartphone with everything from a high-definition camera to internet access and social media packed into it. You can say the same thing about video cameras installed in fleet vehicles. A dashcam can be just that—a video camera installed in a truck—or it can be much more.

Field service business fleet managers send their landscaping, roofing, pest control, or construction crews on thousands of calls every day. Those trucks drive millions of miles every year—and accidents can happen. But what happens when the other driver in one of those accidents makes a false claim? If you don’t have witnesses, you don’t have any evidence. With GPS Trackit’s video telematics and dashcam solutions, fleet managers can capture high-definition footage of an incident, even in low light. The footage can stream back to HQ in real-time, stored on board or on the cloud—giving you easy access to the evidence you need to prevent false claims and costly lawsuits.

When the pandemic disrupted supply chains across the United States, it also accelerated incidents of cargo theft. According to the FBI, more than $15 billion in cargo was stolen either by being separated from a shipment or from the cargo hauler itself being stolen.

Standard GPS systems installed in a tractor-trailer can help you monitor where your truck is at all times—but if the truck is gone, you’ll only be able to watch it disappear. Just this spring, Ukrainian farmers watched helplessly as their expensive farm machinery was stolen by Russia and moved by truck hundreds of miles across the border.
