Transport of hazardous materials: why geolocate vehicles?

Fleet management tools assisted by geolocation, applied in the transport of hazardous materials (fuel, toxic waste, flammable products, etc.), can be very useful for entities such as transport companies.
Our Silver, Gold and Platinum software provides a large amount of features that may be of interest to hazardous materials transportation professionals. The needs of these professionals in fleet management lie in the following:
Find drivers and vehicles in real time, and identify vehicles closest to an address for quick response: lets you know what a driver is doing in real time, if he is driving or if he is on a break, and where, what is empowers the driver and commits him to respect his working time. If a customer calls the standard for delivery, the operator looks for which vehicle is closest to him, sends a mission notification to the driver and warns the customer how far the customer is, and possibly allows him to follow the vehicle until its arrival. Knowing that he is being monitored, the driver also pays more attention to his journeys and commits fewer detours. The driver is more productive, the customer is taken care of more quickly and will appreciate the quality of service, the company spends less fuel and the vehicles travel less kilometers, the operator has visibility throughout the fleet and can organize travel more easily.
Organize vehicle parking: allows you to quickly find the location where a vehicle is parked, on which car park, which saves the operator extra time, and avoids looking for a vehicle where it is not.
Know in real time the status of a vehicle (stopping, running, pausing, loading…) and planning deliveries: to find out if the vehicle is being used, whether it is on its way or on a congested route, as well as to know the state of filling of its fuel tank that identifies suspicious withdrawals, and knows exactly which vehicle requires a new full. The operator can track the movements of a vehicle and its driver in real time through the delivery tracking tool, and will receive notifications via email or SMS at each new stage of its tour, allowing it to notify customers of arrival anticipate delays by notifying the customer, and ensure that each of the crossing points has been visited.
Secure drivers in the event of an assault or accident with an alert button, which allows them to react more quickly and prevent emergency services; Do road safety by controlling the speed of the vehicle, and enforcing the rules of eco-driving; while freeing up the driver’s responsibilities through the Crashbox which gives access to a large amount of information prior to a possible crash, which will rule out conflicts with insurance companies. The Crashbox can be inserted into an ATEX anti-explosion box that will protect it in the event of an explosion.
Make statistics and calculate vehicle utilization rates: to find out which vehicles are most used and the number of kilometres on the meter, in order to distribute free vehicles more equitably to drivers, thus allowing to better target vehicles that require maintenance. Also to find out when the driver of the vehicle started his day and what time he finished, which has the quick effect of making him responsible for his punctuality and respect for his working hours.
View route history: allows the operator to find all the vehicle’s journeys and time slots, count its number of races, driving time, and distance travelled, and find violations of the vehicle’s code such as speeding. Some of the operator’s tasks are therefore automated, for example he will no longer need to manually enter vehicle mileage, which will save him time and comfort in the execution of his work.
Fuel and maintenance savings: Drivers who are introduced to eco-driving adopt an economical and greener ride, which has the effect of reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on which the company can communicate about its responsible approach to sustainable development. Eco-driving also reduces vehicle wear and tear thanks to a more flexible ride, taking more care of the engine, tires…
Check the fuel outputs of tankers and their tanks to limit fuel theft: using sensors, the operator can know in real time whether a drain operation has been activated at an abnormal location. The operator can also compare the filling levels of a tank between two delivery points, using a tank aperture sensor or a fuel sensor in the tank, and can therefore detect withdrawals and possible theft of goods .
Build a database of the entire fleet of vehicles and drivers, in order to simplify the administrative tasks of the operator, by centralizing the information and allowing him to better organize himself; have access to vehicle information such as the date of last maintenance, fuel type or registration, to know who drives which vehicle at a T moment through the use of Dallas keys.
Be alerted by SMS or email: the operator is notified in real time in case of non-compliance, eco-driving or speed; if a vehicle enters or leaves the garage, or at a specific location such as the address of a recurring customer, a rest area or in an area where parking is not permitted.
