Commonly asked questions
How does fleet management work in the oil, gas and mining industry?
Geotab helps companies in the resources sector to measure the performance of their fleet vehicles and equipment, and monitor their location in real time. The Geotab GO device identifies maintenance requirements early, which reduces downtime. It can monitor lone workers in the field via GPS, and receive real-time alerts if they, or their vehicle are in distress. The GO RUGGED devices are especially resilient, and effective at tracking heavy equipment and trailers.
Can tracking be carried out for any type of oil, gas and mining transportation?
Oil, gas and mining companies that have vehicles and equipment operating in harsh environments can use the Geotab GO RUGGED device to track and monitor location, driver behavior, vehicle health and fuel usage for heavy-duty transport trucks, trailers, containers, generators and other movable assets.
What are the biggest challenges in managing an oil, gas and mining fleet?
Vehicles and equipment in this industry operate in very harsh, remote conditions, and need to be tracked and monitored accordingly. They require preventative maintenance to maximise their performance and productivity. Companies in these industries need to ensure their drivers are driving safely, they aren’t exceeding their assigned work schedules, and aren’t driving outside of their designated territory.
Geotab telematics solutions address all of these challenges with rugged, GPS-enabled devices and critical insights. Geotab GO devices can identify where vehicles and equipment are, and if they require any maintenance or repairs.
What are the advantages of using a tracker in the oil, gas and mining industry?
Geotab telematics solutions enable companies in the resources sector to monitor the health, location and performance of their vehicles and equipment in real-time, and from a distance. GO RUGGED devices are reliable and resistant to wear and tear.
Other benefits include:
- Geotab Keyless Bluetooth and cell commands ensure that vehicles are locked at night, and are accessible to all authorized drivers.
- Open data integration platform for insights on vehicle and equipment productivity and performance.

Which types of oil, gas and mining transportation vehicles does the Geotab tracking device work on?
The Geotab GO device is compatible with many different cars, trucks and vans, including gas-powered and electric vehicles. Fleet managers can track passenger vehicles, EVs, heavy-duty trucks, farm machinery, earth moving equipment, quarrying equipment, powered trailers and much more together on their MyGeotab fleet management software dashboard.
How can telematics help companies in the oil, gas and mining sector?
Thanks to fleet monitoring, you can optimise your services and use our maintenance software to avoid major breakdowns and save on repair costs.
How can fleet management software make mining safer?
