Register waiting times smoothly through Geofence (geographic areas)

Some Fleet Management Systems have the ability to create virtual geographic areas on a map. In Vehco's system, this feature is called Geofence. This feature allows companies to create areas of any kind on a map. When a vehicle equipped with Vehco enters or leaves a geofence-area, this is recorded in the system. As you decide on the size of the area, you can calculate how long time it will take for the vehicle from it enters the geographical area until the vehicle leaves the area. Often, such a geographical area is placed just around the loading area of the customer.

For most transportation companies this is an indirect expense that is difficult to get full coverage for when the customer is charged. For this reason, there is good potential to save money and time in this area.

 In this e-book we will explain how to effectively measure and reduce the unnecessary waiting times that are common in the industry. We will partly discuss how telematics and Fleet Management Systems can be used to...
