GPS For Shipments & Asset Tracking
There are many business reasons for deploying a real-time gps tracking device on any shipment of goods from a vendor to a customer. From the vendor side, delivery of products can be extremely time sensitive. For example, shipping produce requires quick turnaround for a delivery and a gps tracking device provides a tight view on where the shipment is and what if any time adjustments need to be made to ensure the freshness and quality the customer is expecting.
Beyond a shipment that is time sensitive, with skyrocketing fuel prices, dispatch can now re-route deliveries to make the most of existing resources. Additionally, lost or stolen product can be greatly reduced by using the Global Tracking Group gps tracking software to identify the precise location of the shipment.
From the customer side, knowing the location and expected delivery of a shipment on a real-time basis will help with planning and resource requirements once the shipment has arrived.
With the use of a UBI5000E gps tracking device from Global Tracking Group, you can choose the frequency of tracking anywhere from once per hour to every minute. Additionally, while the UBI5000E is not in motion, it will go into "sleep" mode, which will enhance battery life dramatically. However, while in sleep mode, the UBI5000E can be programmed to tell you where it is at a predetermined frequency or, by using the gps tracking software, a user can ping the device for real-time gps tracking data of the device location. This becomes especially useful for extending battery life while still knowing if the shipment has left its location if the gps tracking device is not hardwired to a vehicle.
Additionally, the new UBI5000E has increased sensitivity to provide the most accurate location position possible. This accuracy combined with longer battery life will cut costs while improving customer service.
