The main barrier to a secure fleet is a lack of visibility over activities and movements. With GPS tracking, you are afforded the luxury of seeing where your vehicles and assets are in real-time as well as where they’ve been in the past. Live information streams allow you to take prompt action should movements not align with plans, or if a vehicle deviates from a predetermined route as this may indicate interference from an outside source.

As you’re tracking your vehicles and assets using GPS technology, you can utilise MiX Telematics’ in-cab devices to communicate with drivers and operators in real-time should something not be as planned. Two-way communication is crucial to determining whether your fleet is secure and prevent the need for action should the driver give feedback as to why a certain action was taken. Having access to communication with head office or their immediate supervisor also helps drivers and operators feel more secure when they travel to dangerous or remote locations.
Geofencing is the creation of predetermined virtual fences around specific points of interest or locations.
Geofencing is the creation of predetermined virtual fences around specific points of interest or locations. Using GPS tracking, whenever a vehicle or asset enters or exits the geographical boundaries that have been configured, a real-time alert or notification is sent to relevant persons. They can then pull up the current GPS location of the vehicle or asset and communicate with the driver or operator to see why the movement has occurred. If this is unauthorised, immediate action can be taken.

Driver ID tags are a crucial component of fleet security. If a vehicle goes out of their virtual boundaries or an alert is received about driver behaviour, you know exactly who to talk to in order to resolve the issue at hand. Driver ID makes it virtually impossible for an unauthorised person to operate a vehicle that is not assigned to them. If a person cannot identify themselves via an identification card, they cannot start the vehicle. This prevents vehicle theft and employees misusing work vehicles for personal purposes.
Dashcams have an enormous number of benefits for fleets. Not only does it monitor unsafe and inefficient driving behaviours to prevent accidents and keep up productivity, but it also secures drivers, assets, and cargo as they travel from point A to point B and back.
As cargo is being loaded and unloaded, it can leave individuals vulnerable to theft. Live video footage from external cameras, attached to the outside of vehicles or on trailers, can be monitored during these moments so that assistance can be sent immediately if it’s needed. Additionally, it can help you see where any potential damage to vehicles and cargo occurred, and put preventative measures in place to prevent it from happening again.
Maintaining the security of your sites is crucial to ensuring unauthorised individuals don’t gain access to sensitive areas or expensive equipment. Alongside driver identification, you can get vehicle access control.
This ensures that barriers to sites or other locations only open for vehicles that are known to the company and have been registered to enter a particular location.
Threats from the outside are not the only concern of fleet managers and supervisors. In-vehicle tracking devices are crucial to you being able to identify who is utilising your assets, where they’re being utilised, and how they’re being handled.
However, sometimes there are individuals who do not want their movements to be tracked and they will try manipulating these devices. MiX Telematics’ tracking devices are all tamperproof so that you always know exactly where your vehicles and assets are and don’t have gaps in your fleet data collection.
We believe that our solutions deliver the best-in-class for managers that need a secure and reliable telematics system that safeguards assets and fleets with data that provides value.
