Tracking equipment improves service and aids in scheduling. Computerized time-tracking systems help dispatchers queue up trucks at the job site with maximum efficiency and will help dispatchers locate trucks. Time-tracking systems are an add-on to scheduling software. Tracking systems store data from previous deliveries and cut radio calls from dispatchers.

Benefits are increased driver productivity, improved working conditions for dispatchers, and data recording may be used to solve payment disputes. KEYWORDS: radio, tracking
