This year the U.S. has been experiencing a wave of cold winter weather and chances are your fleet is busy at work and has the heat cranking.
Whether it’s the vans idling in the morning to warm up or your drivers neglecting to turn them off at jobs so they stay toasty, the issue still remains.
Your fleet is idling. For every hour a van idles, it’s a half a gallon of gas.
So how do you battle your fleet’s idling?
GPS tracking offers alerts that you can receive to let you know that a member of your team is idling. And better yet, you can have the idling fleet member alerted when they surpass your threshold. This lets them know that you know they’re idling and that they better shut of the van or get moving.

What is GPS tracking?
There are 24 government satellites that track GPS, and all you need is 3 satellites to triangulate on your GPS unit.
When the satellites lock on your device, they provide you with information such as latitude, longitude, and speed.
When 6-10 satellites lock on your GPS device, the system can get as close as 15-30 feet of your vehicles location.
But how do you access this information?
GPS is very simple. It’s all internet based, so anywhere you can access the internet, you can access your fleet.
Whether it’s from the office or on the road, our GPS tracking system can help you manage and maintain your fleet!
