Fleet Tracking, Efficiency and Compliance

Fleet owners need to increase productivity, reduce costs and ensure compliance to survive in today’s competitive landscape. Managing a productive fleet is all about receiving the right data at the right time and being empowered to take immediate action.

Fleet tracking provides a cost-effective and reliable communications link to monitor vehicle location, reduce fuel costs, optimize travel routes, improve driver behavior, minimize idle times and ensure compliance.

Wherever vehicles travel, even outside cellular coverage, ORBCOMM provides the reach to enable always-on communications for reliable and cost-effective fleet tracking. Advanced fleet analytics turns data into action so that you can improve your fleet’s performance and profitability.
