Vehicle monitoring. It is important to know where the product transport units are located, as well as the routes they follow and their destinations. How do you face this challenge? Integration of advanced GPS systems and unit satellite locations in real time 24 hours a day across the country and even abroad. Some GPS service providers have high-quality solutions for carriers, which helps to increase safety in the transportation of goods, as this technology allows the detection of the jammer, which is the most widely used tool for blocking the GPS signal.
