Commonly asked questions

Truck fleet management enables you to go beyond simple GPS location tracking and gain a deeper understanding of your fleets movements. Use it to monitor vehicle health, driver behaviour patterns, EV battery charge, fuel levels and more.
​​Geotab’s technology solutions take rich data from your vehicles and provides useful insights to make important business decisions.

We can help you measure a vast range of fleet metrics, from vehicle location, fuel usage, driver behaviour, routing and much more. With this data, we can help you eliminate inefficiencies and build strategies to become a safer, more productive fleet.
Driving time regulations are in place to minimise and prevent danger to public traffic by protecting truck drivers from working excessive hours.

The main EU rules on driving hours are that drivers of vehicles requiring tachographs must not drive more than:

• 9 hours in a day - this can be extended to 10 hours twice a week • 56 hours in a week
• 90 hours in any 2 consecutive weeks

Drivers must also take a rest break of at least 45 minutes after every four and a half hours of driving.

Drivers must take a daily rest period of at least 11 hours. A reduced daily rest period of nine hours is allowable up to a maximum of three times a week.

For more information on these rules and regulations, read our white paper: Flexible and cost competitive strategies for European heavy goods fleets.
You can’t manage what you don’t measure. With full visibility over metrics such as truck speed, fuel usage, location and more, you can target areas for improvement and eliminate inefficiencies.

Using MyGeotab, you can also benchmark your organisation’s performance against truck fleets of a similar size, makeup or geographical area. For example, you could see how driver behaviour is impacted by weather or road congestion.

Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) data analytics enables full visibility of fleet operations, helps identify bottlenecks and provides the ability to plan ahead of time. These valuable insights allow fleets to make informed decisions for the benefit of day-to-day operations.

Managing a fleet of trucks is much easier with fleet-specific technologies. The telematics system allows you to go beyond simple GPS location tracking to control your fleet's movements more effectively. You can also use it to monitor the vehicle health, driver behaviour patterns, fuel levels and more.
