Fleet management can include a range of functions like tracking, diagnostics, driver management, speed and fuel management. It allows companies which rely on transportation in their business to remove or minimise the risks associated with vehicle investment. It also aids with improving efficiency, productivity and reduces overall transportation costs whilst remaining compliant with legislation.
Cold Chain Logistics
A cold chain is an uninterrupted series of storage and distribution activities which maintain a given temperature range. It is used to ensure the shelf life of fresh produce, seafood, frozen food, chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs. Mobile technology is used to monitor temperature across industry applications, a cost-effective process to ensure compliance with health and safety legislation.
GSM solutions provide this sector with real time data to track buses and trains, respond to emergency alerts, monitor on-board CCTV cameras, re-route due to congestion or monitor and manage to provide faster and better service to customers. Additionally it allows real time interaction with customers about arrival times, route interruptions, emergencies or other important events.
Transportation agencies rely upon traffic management systems to manage their road and transportation networks. Real time data through the use of mobile technologies supports effective management in their areas of responsibility, clearing incidents and accidents, and disseminating traffic information to the public to reduce the impact of accidents, adverse weather or congestion.
Fleet owners and transportation infrastructure managers demand wireless solutions that are open, secure and scalable to enable cost-effective communications, location and tracking of assets, and deployment of new services for new business needs.
The deployment of wireless connectivity technologies within this sector, can also add value by providing real time data to improve efficiencies like fuel and emissions, can divert traffic away from heavily congested or accident areas, and can be used to reduce insurance premiums through stolen vehicle recovery and driver duty logs
