Using GPS tracking as a supply chain tool

Published on August 26, 2013 in Productivity by Geotab

Learn how GPS fleet tracking technology improves the reliability of the supply chain by increasing the visibility of goods across the network.

Global complexity of supply chain management and unpredictability of demand makes it difficult for organizations to deliver quality goods on time. One proven method of improving the reliability of the supply chain is to increase the visibility of goods scattered across the network through a better flow of information with GPS fleet tracking technology.

The information provides managers with optimal capabilities to track and manage their operations through:

  • Route visibility
  • Cargo tracking
  • Fuel cost tracking
  • Enhanced safety and efficiency

GPS devices and fleet management software are tools that enhance a company’s product quality, speed of delivery, efficient routing, cost reductions and overall transportation visibility. In today’s world, business managers want to keep track of everything from vehicle safety to energy efficiency.
Environmentally, GPS fleet management software can help track which vehicles are giving off high carbon emissions that exceed environmental standards. As new laws further restrict the environmental impact of busi­nesses, it is essential to have this information on hand so you can meet stricter standards.

Companies that cling to “the way it’s always been done” are being left behind in an unforgiving economy shaped by speed, adaptability, and above all, efficiency. Automated tracking of inventory and shipment status is invaluable for maximizing profit and business potential, and something best left to tools such as GPS fleet management software.
