Big box or bulk retailers are known to provide a large variety of products in mass quantities. People usually shop in these stores to get things on their list in one stop, without having to go through the hassle of visiting multiple stores. However, to keep up with the demand and to keep shelves well-stocked, today’s big box retailers rely on real-time GPS tracking for the safe delivery of their fleets.

The fleet tracking is going to provide real-time data about the location, direction of travel, and the speed of trucks in the company’s own fleet. For retailers, this means that they know exactly where the product is, where it’s headed, and how long a time it will take to arrive.
Trackimo, for instance, will provide clients with customized tracking solutions designed to meet their needs—from cellular, passive, and satellite tracking, depending on the specific needs and locations. The standard system can track speed and location of the vehicles and even monitor driver behavior, which results in an accurate picture of how well your fleet is serving stores, how responsible drivers are in caring for the fleet, and even how safe the products are.
What Are the Benefits of GPS Truck Tracking?
When you have “big box” stores, you have dozens of trucks going back and forth from the store every day. These trucks carry products from different distribution centers, to stores, and back again. Truck tracking allows for a better organization of fleets, reducing wasted miles and improving the timeliness of deliveries. This helps ensure that you are not running two trucks in the same location, especially when it takes only one truck to deliver the necessary goods.
GPS tracking with Trackimo ensures fleet safety. With real-time data, overall risk is reduced. More than that, the fact that there is a monitor for driver habits can put a stop to inefficient driving practices, like excessive idling or unauthorized side trips that increase fuel consumption.
Trackimo has an easy-to-use truck tracking software that can provide trucks with activity reporting, and they are coordinated with Google Maps to provide for an advanced reporting that includes location information. Reports also include both current and historical data to help improve analysis of fleet operations, including electronic logs to maintain compliance with the FMCSA electronic logging mandate.
