With ever-increasing globalization, international trade has been branching out expanding itself to all parts of the world. The transfer of goods, services and value depends on communication flow and logistics and are therefore a vital part of our consumer-driven world today. With the aforementioned expansion, and the growing needs of the logistics industry, more efficient methods are in demand to ensure effective value transfer and service delivery.
GPS has evolved the way, the world functions. At over 20,000 kilometers above sea level, is a constellation of satellites. These satellites are constantly beaming data down to us on earth, which in turn is received by devices such as phone or navigational units in your vehicles. They further allow you to see where you are on the planet. GPS tracking systems are one of the latest cutting-edge solutions to help keep track of where your boat or vehicle is at all times. Without a suitable GPS boat tracking system, tracking down your boat would be nearly impossible. Boats are expensive assets to their owner or boat enthusiast. And, with the regular boat costing nearly $29,000, security is an important issue for any owner. Certainly, GPS tracker offers that security and, is found to be a great tool for theft prevention and recovery because it can identify any unauthorized usage of the boat.
Car rental is quite a progressive and profitable industry, but the main issue that nags the car rental companies is the security of the car they rent out to their consumers. Some of the basic and frequently popping questions in the minds of the car rental owners are:
- Are they equipped to meet the requirements of their consumers?
- What measure can be taken to ensure that every document of the car that the company owns is in order?
- When you are handing over the car to your customer along with the documents (As it is a necessity) how do you ensure that your customer would not steal it?
Spiked fuel costs are one of the constant woes of fleet owners in the USA. The staggering prices have even forced many businesses to downsize their fleets in order to cope up with the current economy. Different approaches are being tried out to keep the fuel expenses under control – such as investments in fuel efficiency vehicles, installation of engine governors etc. However, a large base of American fleet owners is stressing on GPS fleet tracking software for effective fuel cost management.

Information technology has taken our worlds by storm! Day in and day out we get to see many newer technologies and applications that are focused on making our lives, more efficient and quick by minimizing the wastage of resources and time. This efficiency and effectiveness have enhanced our productivity and potential by quite a margin.
One very prominent aspect that has been requiring our attention for quite some time is, Fleet management. Defined Fleet management, is related to the commercial management of vehicles and vehicles related resources. The key focus of Fleet management (telematics) is to minimize wastage, increase productivity and efficiency, reduce or remove bottlenecks, streamline the commuting and communicating process involved in the fleet; it also focuses on minimizing damage and reducing time wastage.
The independent FinancesOnline.com site did the most popular GPS tracking software’s comparison. Particularly in this post, you will see NexTraq, Wialon, Teletrack Navman Director comparison. All these fleet management software deservers the highest ratings for their UI design, powerful features, functionality etc. However, the question is, which GPS tracking software among these, got the highest score?
In the second post, we took comparison statistics from FinancesOnline.com of another 3 popular GPS tracking software. In particular: Navixy, GPSWOX and Fleetmatics for their overall performance. FinancesOnline.com use unique SmartScore™ system to evaluate all the GPS tracking software listed to help you get the best one. It includes the mix of following elements:
For 7 years Telematics Conference SEEurope is the only telematics focused conference and exhibition in Southeast Europe. It brings together 120+ key stakeholders from commercial telematics.
With carefully selected speakers Telematics Conference SEEurope represents the best opportunity to hear about the latest achievements in telematics, logistics and transport and also about the particularities of the regional market and how to become a regional player.

Meitrack releases the newest palm-sized 3G personal GPS tracker, the P99G. This expands the number of personal trackers for Meitrack. It will be available for pre-order samples in late July 2017.
The P99G has a rugged sturdy housing making it water resistant (IP67 rating), dustproof, shockproof and durable. It can withstand being submerged in water for up to 30 minutes in a 1-meter depth. It will come with Wifi GPS location and various charging options. After it flows into the market, we predict it will be one of the most popular units among sports lovers, adventure seekers and workers (miners, construction workers, electricians, etc). The P99G GPS tracker is ideal for various outdoor activities, such as hiking, camping, fishing trips, snowboarding, rock climbing, kayaking, etc.
10 ways to optimize fleet management
Fleet management optimization is one of the most important tasks in transport monitoring. Despite the fact that professional GPS equipment has broad opportunities, mostly used solutions imply only fuel level control and vehicle tracking. How else can you optimize costs and improve the efficiency of fleet management? In this article, we have gathered TOP-10 options.
1. Fuel usage control
While we are on fuel level control, it is important to mention that standard embedded sensors are not enough. The perfect system will record not only the current level of fuel, but also consumption, refueling, draining. Digital fuel level sensors are highly accurate and can cope with this task. Connecting sensors to Galileosky tracking devices by RS232 and RS485 interfaces will allow monitor all indicators in real time. Thanks to RS485 protocol support, up to 16 fuel level sensors can be connected to the GPS tracker at the same time – this option is mostly suitable for special vehicles with several fuel tanks or stationary fuel facilities.
