Track your Fleet’s Assets with GPS Tracking Devices

Replacing equipment and other expensive assets can be one of the highest costs for fleets, so it is important to monitor not only your vehicles’ activity, but your trailers, freight, heavy equipment, and other assets too. GPS tracking devices can use both cellular and satellite networks to track any type of asset, no matter its geographic location, to help protect your fleet against theft, extend the life cycles of assets, monitor assets in real-time, and more.

To figure out which type of asset tracking devices will work for your fleet, you need to ask yourself how many location points you need to receive per day, if the assets are powered or non-powered, where these assets spend most of their time geographically, and how often the assets are running versus not running. The following asset tracking devices work with the GPS Insight Fleet and Asset Tracking Solution to meet the requirements and needs of your business.

Externally Powered GPS Tracking Devices

Externally powered GPS tracking devices needs to be wired to a power source on the asset that it will be tracking, so it should only be used for assets that are powered up regularly.
