Portable Tracking Systems.
A lot of industries make use of sub-contractors on short or long term contracts, and in some cases these contractors change frequently. This makes it very difficult to track the vehicles whilst they are working for you. The sub-contractor possibly also swaps vehicles around frequently so you can.t force them to fit a permanent tracking system. The simple answer is to give the contractors a portable unit that is to be used whilst working for you. This will give you all the benefits of tracking the vehicles, monitoring any delays, demurrage charges, speeding, etc, without the politics involved in forcing sub-contractors to fit tracking equipment to a vehicle if they don.t always run for you or know which vehicles they are going to allocate.
The portable units are available for outright purchase or short and long term rentals. The short term rentals have proven popular with Civil Transport operators with short term contracts.

The Ctrack GPS tracking system uses 3 types of Geo-fences. These are Preferred Areas, No-Go Zones and Waypoints. Preferred areas can be used to control where a vehicle is allowed to operate. For example if a vehicle is only allowed to operate on a construction site and is never allowed to leave the site, you can create an area all the way around the site which will alarm if the vehicle exits the area. You can then also use the No-Go zones to monitor when a vehicle enters an illegal area, for example a road / bridge / tunnel that the vehicle can not use at all, or during specific hours. Waypoints are used to monitor the time spent within a specific zone. This can be used for delay charges (demurrage) for pick ups and deliveries.
Some civil companies use the Geo-Fences to generate an output on the Ctrack unit which will turn on a 3rd party device whilst in a geo-fenced area. This can be used to automatically turn on the lights on the roof of the vehicle whilst on a work site, or start a MP3 player that tells the driver to wear his / her hi-vis jacket and hardhat.
The portable GPS tracking devices are compatible with either hard wired or remote panic buttons. The system will forward a text message to up to 3 mobile phone numbers as soon as the duress alarm is activated with the vehicle details and street address of the vehicle.
