What is a truck?
Stupid question right? Well maybe but the word truck can mean different things to different people. Some only think of large, long-haul trucks. Others think of SUVs commonly seen around town like a Chevy Suburban or Toyota Sequoia. Or there are pickup trucks with a flatbed on the back. If you're from the U.K. you'll probably be thinking lorry.
At TruckGPS.org it means all those things. It looks at how commercial truck drivers and their fleet managers face unique challenges, challenges that can be met using GPS technology.
Truck GPS can help with turn-by-turn navigation, dispatching, preventative maintenance as well as monitoring the mechanical health of your vehicle. Fleet managers can use it to keep their trucks secure, operating efficiently and fully utilized.
If you have any topics you'd like covered or questions about using GPS with your work truck, please contact us.
