Companies looking to become more efficient in their transportation and logistics sectors can benefit from real time GPS vehicle tracking from Future Fleet. Founded in 2003, the company recognised a need for greater GPS technology in the transportation industry. Utilising modern technology, Future Fleet has emerged as one of Australia’s leading GPS fleet management solutions.
Future Fleet specialises in advanced GPS real time web-based tracking as well as GPS fleet management, asset tracking, and providing cost effective solutions for those in transportation, logistics, and field sales and service. Future Fleet products are not off the shelf. The company works to customise solutions for each individual customer. For example, Future Fleet has developed a solar powered device for non-powered assets such as trailers. Customers can track a trailer, something that is unique in the market. It is one of the things that help to separate Future Fleet from its competitors.
With a vehicle tracking device from Future Fleet, customers can locate their vehicles in real time. The last thing a company wants is a lost or stolen vehicle or trailer, which can be very costly. Future Fleet works to help reduce that risk.
Customers using a tracking system can also monitor driver activity and manage driver fatigue. Drivers’ activities such as excessive or harsh braking and speeding can be monitored and corrected. Tracking can also allow a customer the ability to see how long a driver has been on the road. More accidents happen when drivers are fatigued. Customers can avert those accidents by watching how long drivers are behind the wheel.
Customers who utilise the fleet tracking systems designed by Future Fleet benefit greatly in reduced costs. They are able to beat the rising cost of fuel as well as the new fuel tax by tracking their vehicles’ usage and driver performance. GPS tracking will allow for the calculation of the shortest possible route between jobs. Minimising the number of miles travelled will help to save on fuel costs. The tracking systems can also monitor the behaviour of drivers. Things like idling, speeding, and braking can be watched. Companies can also keep track of when vehicles are serviced. Monitoring all of these items helps to increase a vehicle’s and a driver’s efficiency and, thus, affect a company’s bottom line.
Future Fleet is also involved heavily in the mining industry, assisting companies to become safer and more cost efficient. In-vehicle monitoring systems are beneficial to the mining industry where drivers are often asked to work in remote areas by themselves. Many of the areas where they must drive feature dangerous terrain and tracking systems from Future Fleet can help a driver navigate through such terrain as well as keep tabs on where the driver and his vehicle are located.
Tracking the vehicles helps to protect company assets and keep both drivers and vehicles safe. Customers that use the services of Future Fleet take comfort in knowing that they are an approved Telstra Supplier and an accredited Queensland government supplier. They have become one of the most reputable fleet management companies in the country.
