What is Fleet Tracking?

Glossary What is Fleet Tracking?

Fleet tracking is a management system that uses GPS tracking to monitor the activity of fleet vehicles and assets (e.g., workers, equipment). It is often referred to as vehicle tracking or AVL. A fleet is generally a collection of land-based assets, such as cars, trucks, field workers and powered or unpowered equipment (e.g., trailers).

GPS fleet tracking uses telematics technology to collect data from fleet vehicles and assets. Using a GPS tracking device attached to a vehicle’s OBD port, this data is normally collected in near real time (actively), so it is more useful for fleet managers and business owners, who can use the data to make strategic decisions about operations (e.g., Which vehicle should I dispatch to a new job? Where is the nearest crane? How many generators do we have in the yard? Has my lone worker returned from the jobsite?)

Benefits of a fleet tracking system

An effective fleet tracking solution can help improve:

  • Driving habits by reducing engine idling time and harsh cornering
  • Fuel consumption and reduce fuel usage and costs
  • Dispatching and customer satisfaction
  • Compliance with FMCSA regulations like Hours of Service (HOS) and the ELD mandate
  • Fleet maintenance costs by tracking vehicle diagnostic information

GPS fleet tracking is an important part of fleet management

For fleet tracking to be effective you need fleet tracking software that intelligently interprets the huge amount of data coming in from the fleet and converts it into easy-to-use reporting dashboards and exception alerts.
