Tracking and telematics systems are changing the game for commercial vehicle fleet managers. Whether your goal is improving fuel management on vans, or driver training on trucks, the technologies are making real differences (image: Wabco/Transics)

Transport managers are using tracking systems for everything from vehicle tracking to journey logging, incident logging, and improving the efficiency of their vehicles and drivers. Vehicle tracking equipment brings new responsiveness, security and management information to fleet management.

Fleet engineers, too, report savings and efficiencies, due to telematics systems improving driver management and driver training – so resulting in improved driver behaviour and reduced wear and tear. Although big in buses and coaches, the technology is spreading to light commercial vehicles and heavy trucks.

As tractor units are increasingly fitted with telematics and tracking systems as standard, Transport Engineer’s online focus will keep you in touch.
