My Drivers Are Honest — I Don’t Need GPS Tracking
Are you sure about that? I’ve been selling, servicing modifying, implementing and consulting on GPS tracking and it’s role in protecting business owners from loss and unnecessary risk for nearly 20 years now. I go back in the GPS to the days there was only one satellite (yes and it was useful, as well)
It is common, so common for business owners to deny they have any problems. It’s human nature, but it’s still really comical … because if all these guys had such a good handle on their business, they’d be rich.
On September 29, an embedded GPS system identified when the shipment – en route from Massachusetts to California – was handed over to thieves by a complicit driver, according to a report from transport security specialist Freightwatch.
The GPS system identified when the shipment was diverted from its route towards Florida by the thieves, who were friends of the driver, and allowed the cargo to be recovered intact by police within hours of the theft. The driver reported the theft when he reached a depot in Jackson, Mississippi.
