It’s officially the Christmas season, and you know what that means? Busy Christmas shopping and an influx of deliveries! For obvious reasons, Christmas tree deliveries are at an all-time high in the days building up to the year’s biggest holiday. The same thing can be said for wreaths and other decors. The demand has driven freight businesses to start planning out faster and more effective routes.
So what business solution have entrepreneurs turned to? GPS fleet tracking, of course. There are multiple ways GPS can be of great help for faster Christmas tree deliveries. Listed below are a few examples.
How GPS Tracking Aids in Christmas Tree Deliveries
GPS eliminates unnecessary mileage
A decrease in the mileage the fleet travels in a day minimizes overall vehicle expenses and hastens delivery time. Most business owners already know that GPS tracking technology is a great means to save on operational costs, but not everyone understands how effective it is in improving the speed of your delivery service as well.
Remember, quick business equates to more customers. GPS tracking services provide a detailed report of the driver’s route to ensure that they follow the shortest and fastest distance between different locations. Additionally, tracking systems like Trackimo allow you to analyze and optimize routes, helping you cut down expenses on vehicle maintenance.
GPS tracking ensures fresh deliveries
Aside from attracting more customers thanks to quick delivery service, you can also guarantee customer satisfaction and expect an increase in the number of clients who will definitely do business again with you. Business owners in this field know very well that wreath and Christmas tree deliveries are always a race against time. It isn’t just about getting the deliveries to their destination on time, the trees are also expected to be fresh upon arrival. With a GPS tracker, you can trust that any rice against the clock will be easy to win without you having to worry about the condition of your goods.

Improve vehicle dispatching
In case of a medical emergency, responders always make it a point to minimize the time caller has to wait for the help to arrive. The same logic can be applied to delivery services. With GPS data, you can dispatch the closest vehicle in an event of an emergency or a vehicle maintenance issue. This is faster than having to call your fleet drivers one by one to confirm who among them is the closest to the location.
It all boils down to better business
Immediately after installing, you can track your fleet wherever it goes. For first-time GPS users, it can give you a new perspective on how efficient fleet management should be. You get insight into vehicle usage, driver habits, and quick scheduling. Overall, tracking gives business owners and managers peace of mind, as it gives them an efficient way of determining where and how their vehicles are being used.
As an added benefit for Christmas tree delivery services, you get to keep track of how many trees you have in stock. In the event of a stolen cargo, you can easily recover them by identifying the tree’s location with your device.
