Why do large transport fleets use cargo monitoring technology?

1. Strictly control the last mile of cargo transportation. Most of the "last mile" distribution optimization tools used to track vehicles or monitor drivers' mobile phones are only helpful for route planning, scheduling, site selection, etc. But how to ensure whether high-value goods are actually delivered and whether they are delivered in the right place is the key to the problem.Goods management knows which goods are dropped off at which place by obtaining customized information, and can find out whether the delivery is correct within a few seconds.Therefore, it can greatly reduce the time required for reloading the correct goods or the return journey of the delivery truck.


2. Ensure the safety of goods. Using the vehicle tracking system, you can prevent the vehicle from being lost or recover the stolen vehicle.However, if the thief tampered with the power cord of your vehicle tracker, you won't be able to track your car.That said, vehicle tracking does provide a certain degree of protection against vehicle theft, but what about the goods in the truck? What if several boxes of your truck are stolen at the rest stop?You won't know this until your goods are delivered to your customers and the goods are counted.In the end, your order will only be partially fulfilled.In the cargo tracking system, since every box, cargo or pallet is tracked, you will immediately know if any items are lifted from the truck, and you will have the opportunity to take them back before it is too late.When combined with other analysis, such as unauthorized parking, induced door opening and route deviation, theft can also be prevented.


3. Extending visibility to warehouse logistics and warehousing are not separated, but connected as a network to form a supply chain system.When the goods are safely delivered to customers, the monitoring in the warehouse can't be stopped, not only in transit.Vehicle tracking system can't provide you with visibility in transit and warehouse, which leads to blind spots in the supply chain and can't effectively deliver goods to customers.However, the goods monitoring equipment can track goods or goods by using the hybrid solution based on GSM/BLE/Wi-Fi. Whether in the warehouse or in transit, it can get the status of the goods in transit through the exact location of the goods.
