How Delivery and Logistics Companies use GPS to prevent loss

Shipment Tracking

Managing large numbers of shipments spanning across multiple states and territories can be a near impossible task. Systems in place such as RFID, and Yard Management Systems, can only do so much when a shipment is late or missing. One way to mitigate the frustration, is by integrating GPS trackers into your shipment process. By utilizing GPS, you can ensure that your packages, shipments, and deliveries can be monitored which ultimately reduces the risk of loss.

Benefits of GPS Trackers for Packages

In addition to being a great deterrent of theft, a GPS tracker placed with your shipment offers the peace of mind of knowing where is it located on a map display in real time. As the device moves and updates its location, those data points would be recorded directly on a map display visible through either our mobile app, or a web browser. Using a device like our Micro-431 Shipment Tracker and the GPS tracking service through Logistimatics, you would have access to those features for one low monthly fee.

Case Study: Loss Prevented

A shipping manager has noticed that a shipment heading to the west coast has been flagged, and is late to arrive to its final destination. Knowing that the shipment was heading towards inclement weather as of the last update, the manager attempted to pull up the location of the shipment. Using their GPS tracker, they were able to pinpoint the location of the shipment, get in touch with the driver and ensure that it was able to arrive safely and successfully.
