With telematics, drivers and dispatch can communicate effectively without unnecessary chatter you experience via CB radios. Drivers cannot recieve or respond to text messages until the truck has been stopped for several moments.

Although some employees may be offsite at the dispatch office, they still have real-time status updates keeping them as informed as those who are working onsite.Having the right data and an updated dispatch system makes it easier to monitor your fleet.

Since on-time delivery is critical, efficient fleet management is essential. To effectively manage supply and demand, dispatchers need to know not only the precise location of each vehicle, but also which stage of the delivery cycle each vehicle is in at all times.

Telematics is a combination of the words telecommunications and informatics. Telematics, in a broad sense, is any integrated use of telecommunications with information and communications technology. It is the technology of sending, receiving and storing information relating to remote objects, such as vehicles, via telecommunication devices.

Clyde Companies installed the complete Trimble telematics system for two of its subsidiaries, Geneva Rock Products and Sunroc Building Materials. The producer paid for the system within a year, and saw a 133% return on investment based on yards per hour.

Fleet management systems, or telematics, will help producers increase productivity by gauging maintenance, reducing idling, improving asset tracking, improving routing, and monitoring safety. These systems increase a company's bottom line while improving the efficiency of the entire fleet.
