Fleet management is what a company does to organize and track an entire fleet of company vehicles. The most basic function in all fleet management systems is the vehicle tracking component. This component is usually GPS based, triangulating a vehicle’s location on a map. This can be used to effectively dispatch trucks for delivery or emergency purposes. Fleet management software is either part of the GPS tracker’s capabilities or can be bought separately.
