Trucking and Telematics Information at Your Fingertips

February 1, 2019 Karli Langner

Let’s face it – you’re busy, and you can’t keep tabs on your drivers by yourself. If you’re managing drivers and trucks that wheel in and out of numerous sites during the day or week and aren’t using automatic processes via technology to more efficiently track and manage your fleet, there’s amazing opportunities to take advantage of to increase driver productivity – and in return, increase your profits. With the right solution, you can avoid the 20-40 minutes per truck per day that’s lost through clocking in and out and other non-productive activities.
