$114 million dollars’-worth of cargo was stolen from trucks over the past year. For fleet owners, this number is staggering as they have to find a way to recoup their lost money. While the statistics of cargo-theft have your attention, there are some relatively easy ways to guard against theft.
Spireon’s FleetLocate helps to prevent against theft and saves customers millions of dollars annually. The prevention solution is a GPS tracking and fleet management system that can easily be installed on any asset, trailer or vehicle. The advantages of adding telematics into your operations are wide reaching, including vehicle location tracking, immediate alerts to cargo threats via door sensors and unauthorized movement alerts, and the device’s placement in virtually undetectable places.
How does a GPS tracking system guard against cargo-theft?
A GPS system provides continual pings to customers providing visibility to where their fleet assets are located. This characteristic ensures stolen trailers, containers, and the vehicles themselves can easily be located and retrieved. The GPS system’s timely alerts allow customers to act within seconds to recover their stolen property, thus mitigating any financial loss. Additionally, the GPS device is unlikely to be detected by a thief due to a variety of covert installation options. Covert installation means thieves cannot detect the tracking device and are therefore unlikely to tamper with it. With this refined technology, truck drivers can be assured their load is safe and will not fall victim to cargo theft.
