Construction Fleets Poised to Expand

Teletrac Navman’s new Telematics Benchmark Report found more than half of global construction firms will be expanding their fleet size during the next year as a result of increased demand for services and the need to replace older machines. More than 80 percent of organizations already are using telematics or plan to do so in the next year, citing equipment tracking as the most common use, followed by tracking speed and hours driven. More than half of respondents using telematics have seen reduced fuel costs up to 40 percent, and almost one-third have had fewer accidents. 

Why Construction Companies are Using GPS Tracking - and What Workers Think About It

More than a third of 1,000 U.S. employees in an independent survey say they have been tracked by GPS on the job. For workers in the construction industry, that number shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Large-scale (and even some not-so-large-scale) construction projects require a lot of workers and vehicles to transport tools and materials. Add multiple jobsites to that equation, and those workers and vehicles multiply too. With so many moving parts (literally), many construction companies are turning to GPS tracking software for help.

Capitalize on the Most Valuable Data from Fleet Telematics

Whether operating dump trucks or pickup trucks, most companies with a fleet of more than 25 vehicles have at least entertained the idea of installing telematics devices to help reduce operational costs and improve safety. However, many companies are not realizing the potential risk-reduction benefit because they are not focused on the appropriate measures to improve driver behaviors, especially hard braking.

Severe Driving Incidents in Construction Exceed National Average

The heavy construction and engineering industry recorded the second most severe driving incidents for service-based vehicles—29 percent above the national average of 2.5 severe driving incidents per every 1,000 miles driven.

Five Ways to Leverage Mobile Tech for a Competitive Advantage

Smartphones have been so disruptive because of the communication and time management problems they solve. They are ubiquitous and powerful enough to run advanced applications that reduce human error. Most importantly, they’re now so fast that data-hungry applications are no longer a pipe dream. Smartphones have been so disruptive because of the communication and time management problems they solve.

Cloud-Based GPS: A Future-Proof Investment

Within seconds, a cloud-based solution can turn any construction fleet  into a more efficient, safer and results-based operation for a price that will ensure incredible ROI from the start and future-proof the  investment for the future.

Keep Construction Costs Down and Productivity Up With GPS Fleet Tracking

Several moving parts are involved in delivering successful projects, and time management is crucial when deadlines are strict. With a fleet tracking solution, contractors can use automated reports for a detailed view of employee activity throughout the day, week or month.

Why Workers Should Follow the ‘Three Points of Contact’ Rule

When it comes to equipment-related falls, small things can make a big different. To safely mount, dismount, enter or exit equipment, three of four points of contact must be maintained with the vehicle at all times: two hands and one foot, or both feet and one hand.

Do the Math on Older Vehicles

Each business is unique, and no universal approach to developing a replacement cycle for a fleet of vehicles exists. To ensure vehicles are replaced at appropriate intervals for optimum performance and resale value, a comprehensive cost and replacement analysis will demonstrate conclusively how older vehicles can cost a business a lot more than they’re worth.
