Rapid Shuttle Co. faces the following challenges before expanding its business network:
- Administration of many of the states call for bidders who have already installed GPS Fleet Tracking Devices in their units and operate via a Fleet Management System.
- If Rapid Shuttle Co. provides fleet services in other states, then it will need to track its units from New York which is a pretty complex task given all the intricacies of such a project.
- In some states, it is rather mandatory for a Fleet Service provider to install Vehicle Tracking Devices in their commercial fleet units.
- Tracking becomes essential when transporting high-valued commodities such as oil and liquefied gas. It minimizes the chances of pilferage.
A fleet management system working hand in hand with individual vehicle trackers is the only viable solution which is both practical and easy to use. Rapid Shuttle Co. needs to install vehicle trackers in its fleet unit to track and secure vehicles as well as shipments.
