The trucking industry loses an average of 728 million hours in productivity each year due to traffic congestion on U.S. highways. To put that number in perspective: Those lost hours are the equivalent of 264,500 trucks sitting immobile for an entire year. Highway jams not only cause widespread inefficiencies, but also unnecessary engine idling – which then leads to additional fuel costs, maintenance issues and driver fatigue. With a GPS fleet tracking system, fleet managers can proactively identify the most efficient routes – or redirect drivers on-the-fly – to avoid common bottlenecks.
