Friday and Saturday nights are the two days in the week when families choose not to slave away in the kitchen, which means that it is busy time for takeouts, food deliveries, and pizza.
With kids and parents both loving the taste of these delectable pies, making the decision to order dinner is an easy choice, but with so many of them ordering the same thing on the weekends, long delays in service become big concerns for pizza companies, making fleet management a real concern for these businesses.

In order to improve service (and not to lose out on time-guarantees or free pizza), pizza deliveries are now using GPS tracking systems to reduce delivery time as well as fuel costs.
It is a highly saturated and competitive industry. There are hundreds of pizzerias in the world—from small-time businesses to major food chains—which is why poor routing and fuel costs could cost a small company a small fortune, especially companies that are working hard to make a profit.
Routing efficiency is not only important in these circumstances, it’s essential. This is why 3G GPS tracking devices like Trackimo have become the simple solution to the problem.
GPS Tracking: How It Works for Pizza Delivery
The great thing about pizza delivery vehicle management needs is that they do not require real-time monitoring, so they can make use of passive tracking systems. Small businesses can keep track of their drivers by recording every stop a pizza driver makes or his route to delivery. This will allow management to figure out whether he is using inefficient routes or is excessive in his use of fuel.
However, these days, pizza companies have been experimenting with live tracking systems that allow their customers to go online to see the exact location of the delivery service vehicle that’s bringing them their dinners. This provides them with the ability to know almost to the precise moment that the delivery gets on their doorstep.
With the help of these GPS systems, anyone can keep track of their delivery. So whether you’re in the business for Chicago deep dish or New York Style, or even authentic Italian, you can make use of this technology to have an edge over business competitors.
