Plan efficient routes to reduce fuel waste and cut costs


Connect via mobile networks, or expand to satellite for remote locations

Australia’s agriculture industry covers vast distances. For some operators, agriculture fleet tracking via the mobile network is all you need. Other organisations have workers so remote they need satellite connectivity to ensure their driver’s safety. Geotab offers both solutions. Adding a satellite modem to your farm equipment tracking devices gives you complete coverage and integration, with additional man-down alerts should the worst happen when a worker is out of regular service range.

Use telematics in agriculture to plan efficient routes from farm gate to delivery

Agricultural fleets travel great distances, so optimising the routes driven using GPS trackers for tractors or harvesters will save you time and fuel costs. With Geotab’s advanced fleet management software, you can map routes and pull reports on what route was taken. Reduce time spent idling in traffic and save on fuel with Geotab.

Integrate solutions for produce safety

Farm produce often needs to be climate controlled while in transit. Geotab can integrate with your trucks’ temperature gauges or other controls to report on produce safety and keep your deliveries uncontaminated.

Include heavy machinery in your farm vehicle tracking

Farm equipment might otherwise be excluded from the broad agriculture fleet tracking program, but Geotab fixes this by offering unbeaten integration with all types of equipment. Monitor engine hours and maintenance of farm machinery using farm equipment maintenance software, map zones to plan workload via agriculture GPS tracking and maintain proper vehicle coverage.

Predict maintenance and report on fault codes to keep your agricultural fleet moving

A vehicle with mechanical issues can spell disaster in the agribusiness sector. Produce often has limited shelf life, so delivery interruptions impact all parts of the organisation. Using farm equipment maintenance software allows you to predict and target maintenance issues to keep the whole fleet operational and report engine fault codes before things grind to a halt.

Manage your off-road fuel tax for money back to your budget

Fuels like petrol or diesel are taxed at the bowser, but in many cases when consumed off-road, a tax refund can be due. Working with Geotab’s Marketplace partner Prism, Geotab helps agriculture fleets with the data required to receive a tax refund from the Australian Taxation Office - funds directly back to your business.



Commonly asked questions

Farming vehicles can be tracked by plugging in a physical telematics device and then connecting it over a mobile or satellite network, depending on your location. When you add a satellite modem to your fleet management devices, you have total coverage and integration with man-down warnings in the event that something goes wrong while a worker is on the job.
As agricultural fleets travel long distances, optimising the routes they take will save you time and money. You can chart routes and generate information on what route was travelled with Geotab's comprehensive fleet management software. With Geotab, you can spend less time idling in traffic and save money on gas.
