NationLink Wireless and Fleet One announced Thursday, July 5, a joint agreement to offer an enhanced GPS tracking system to all Fleet One customers. Through Fleet One Vehicle Tracking, developed by NationLink’s AIC-GPS business group, Fleet One will offer customers the benefits of GPS tracking along with a customized feature to direct drivers to stops that accept the Fleet One fuel card for fueling, repairs and other services.
The benefits of NationLink’s AIC-GPS solution include improved vehicle routing, reduced fuel costs, decreased idle time and lower insurance premiums, according to the companies. Through Fleet One Vehicle Tracking, the two companies say they are taking those benefits a step further by offering fleet managers a customized program powered by both cellular and GPS technology.
Through Fleet One Vehicle Tracking, fleet managers will access information through a password-protected website, and provide drivers with information via cell phone or two-way radio. In addition to the location of fuel stops, fleet managers can view amenities offered by each merchant, such as showers or food services. The enhanced tracking also will benefit Fleet One merchants by driving more fleet traffic to their locations, the companies say.
