Road Freight Transportation - Track and monitor your remote assets
Staying in constant contact with your fleet or lorries, monitoring on-board cargo, obtaining telemetry data and knowing the status of your deliveries, is now business-critical for freight haulers on all continents.
Continuous monitoring protects your vehicle and its cargo, especially those that are hazardous or perishable. Cargoes are more likely to arrive on time and in saleable condition. If a lorry is stolen it is quickly tracked and recovered.
Using IsatM2M, or soon to be launched IsatData Pro, fleets can be in continuous contact with the control centre, warehouses and customers awaiting delivery.
Low-speed data is ideal for continuously and automatically obtaining data from vehicle sensors to monitor drivers’ behavior and vehicle condition – perhaps driver hours, working time, loading, cargo temperature, speed, tire pressure, braking, fuel consumption, or CO2 emissions.
Security & Safety
While drivers take breaks away from their cabs, fleet managers can remotely monitor their vehicles using door and fuel cap sensors so that they are immediately aware of attempts to break in. If a vehicle is stolen they will easily be able to track it in real time, significantly increasing the chances of recovery.
Should drivers be involved in any incidents that threaten their health and safety they can instantly contact the control centre. And as you can always pinpoint the asset location, emergency services can be alerted immediately, or other drivers notified, to reach them as quickly as possible.
Such measures, by improving both safety and security, also help to reduce expensive haulage insurance premiums for your whole fleet and for individual vehicles travelling through areas considered high risk.
And by using telemetry data to give drivers feedback in real time on their driving habits, you can help them understand how they can drive more fuel efficiently. Small savings per vehicle can add up to significant savings across your fleet.
