To obtain a better understanding of GPS for heavy equipment tracking, one of the first questions many of our customers ask is, “How do you track heavy equipment with GPS?” The same technology used to monitor fleet vehicles is used to track all types of equipment — from cranes to excavators to bulldozers. Heavy equipment tracking devices are placed in equipment to allow management to see how their company assets are being used 24/7. Get real-time alerts, route tracking, and theft prevention tools with GPS tracking for construction equipment.
Heavy equipment is a big investment, which is why it’s so important to keep your equipment running at peak performance levels. Idling, fuel waste, and unauthorized or rough use can make your equipment more expensive to operate and maintain. Installing an effective tracking solution from Track Your Truck helps extend the useful life of your heavy equipment.
Locate your equipment, monitor the way assets are being deployed and track the hours your drivers work. Heavy equipment GPS tracking devices provide the data for reports — reports that provide a complete understanding of your equipment activity.
Our GPS tracking technology has applications for any industry that uses a heavy equipment:
How effectively is your team using your backhoes, trenchers, excavators, bulldozers, tractors, graders and similar heavy equipment? Without a GPS tracker for heavy equipment, construction companies are left to guess how many hours these devices are being utilized and how efficiently they are being used. Track Your Truck’s tracking systems allow you to have real-time information to know exactly how and where your equipment is being used.
With Track Your Truck, you can monitor your equipment at multiple locations effortlessly. Do you need a bulldozer at a new site? Instantly see where all of your bulldozers are and which ones are not in use. Are you sending agricultural equipment to a customer’s farm? Provide an accurate estimated time of arrival with vehicle tracking. Deploy equipment quickly with accurate arrival estimates and accurate location data.
See data about mileage, engine hours, idling time and even unauthorized use for all vehicles and equipment your company owns – this helps to ensure they are being used to their fullest potential. Make changes where necessary to increase efficiency and effectiveness for your entire fleet.
GPS tracking systems for construction equipment provide real-time data about vehicle location. These systems allow construction companies to track equipment at all times, even in remote locations, allowing team leaders to make informed decisions about how to best accomplish tasks at the job site.
The real-time data offered through construction equipment tracking isn’t limited to vehicle location. Managers will also receive data about whether or not an engine is running and how far the vehicle has traveled. This helps you track your goals and keep your team accountable.
Construction equipment represents a sizeable investment. All too often, companies invest in equipment they don’t need simply because they are not using it as efficiently as possible. Track Your Truck wants to eliminate this inefficiency with the help of equipment tracking.
Accurate, real-time data about equipment location and use is critical to improving the overall production of your valuable equipment. When you are not utilizing equipment to its fullest potential, it is costing you money with minimal benefit. Using a fleet tracking system will help ensure that you are getting the most out of your equipment. For example, Track Your Truck’s tracking systems provide instant data about equipment that is idle at a job site, so you can help your team use it more effectively at that site or you can make use of that equipment at another site.
Furthermore, by tracking your construction equipment, you can ensure that the equipment is properly dispersed. Track Your Truck’s tracking system will keep a log of every piece of equipment’s location so you can easily determine whether a site is using too much, too little or the precise amount of equipment.
Nothing is quite as frustrating, or costly, as the theft of a piece of equipment. Unauthorized use of company equipment may be slightly less costly, but it is still frustrating and causes unnecessary wear and tear. With construction equipment tracking, you can enhance accountability and stop unauthorized use — or even theft. Thanks to accurate, real-time tracking data, you can see when the equipment is misplaced or missing from your property or job sites.
Unauthorized use is just part of the problem. When equipment is left at a job site overnight, it is vulnerable to theft from outsiders. Access to real-time data about equipment locations alerts you to missing or stolen equipment, and allows you to take prompt action to recover it quickly. Give law enforcement professionals the last known GPS coordinates for any stolen equipment to increase the chances of a successful recovery.
Set perimeter alarms so you know when equipment leaves a construction site, easily track any misplaced or stolen equipment, and monitor hours of use with the right tracking system from Track Your Truck. Provide customers with real-time delivery estimates for shipments and deliveries. Just as with mobile vehicles, your tracking system will show you real-time data about how a piece of equipment is being used, so every project is proceeding as effectively and efficiently as possible.
Improper use of heavy machinery adds wear and tear to these costly assets. Equipment tracking can help ensure assets are used optimally. With real-time GPS equipment tracking from Track Your Truck, companies that operate multiple job sites can quickly locate equipment and send it where it’s needed. Fleet management can monitor engine hours to reduce idle time. Geofencing can help to prevent unauthorized use of company equipment.
Track Your Truck’s tracking systems not only log location and use of equipment, but also maintenance. You can set up the system to send maintenance alerts when a piece of equipment is nearing time for service. This ensures that your team never forgets critical maintenance.
By tracking and monitoring maintenance more effectively, you can see to it that all preventive maintenance is handled on time. This will extend the life of your equipment and its overall efficiency. And focusing on maintenance with the help of your tracking system, you also will get more use out of your equipment.
Accurate data about mileage, engine hours and past service will also help you ensure maintenance is performed exactly when it is needed and based on actual use — particularly helpful for equipment that isn’t used daily. Keep more accurate logs and documentation to satisfy any regulations surrounding your work and industry.
Routine maintenance is one of the most important factors in preserving the lifespan of industrial equipment. Track Your Truck’s industrial equipment tracking technology helps ensure preventative equipment maintenance isn’t an afterthought. Our heavy equipment tracking systems send you alerts when key maintenance tasks are due. You can schedule maintenance tasks when the equipment isn’t needed to minimize downtime and extend your equipment’s lifespan.
Operator behavior is a key factor that contributes to wear and tear on heavy equipment. Track Your Truck’s tracking systems not only monitor vehicle performance, but they also monitor operator behaviors. Put a stop to dangerous and wasteful behavior such as unwanted idling time with real-time data that logs how vehicles are being used. By keeping operators accountable for use of your company’s equipment, you will be able to reduce wear and tear and lower operating costs.
