Where’s My Truck?
Mitigating theft with transparent and actionable data
By Nick Will
Where’s my truck? This is the dreaded question every fleet manager wants an immediate answer to. With today’s technology, that answer has never been easier to obtain, and especially when one looks at the amount of detail available through programmable alerts and customizable reports. As advancements in the field of asset management continue to improve and expand, GPS tracking works around the clock to help fleets of all shapes and sizes to keep an eye on their equipment and even recover it in the event of theft. Theft also comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, which can range from physical theft of an asset to inventory and even time theft. Thanks to telematics, there is a great deal more visibility surrounding these threats, acting as a feather in the cap of any fleet and giving managers the upper hand when it comes to addressing such situations.
