The world is changing fast and consumer expectations too are also changing, which has impacted operations of the supply chain. Businesses and organisations that use fleet operators and fleet vehicle services, from heavy-duty trucks to local delivery vans, are all increasingly accepting GPS enabled truck tracking software applications. This fleet management system uses a telematics device connected to and installed in the truck or vehicle, to gather necessary information or data.
