Using global positioning system (GPS) technology for tracking goes beyond tracking semi-trucks and vehicles. You can use this technology to track and monitor a wide assortment of assets for private organizations and commercial businesses, including trailers, generators, cargo shipments, and packages of all sizes.

A Tracking Solution That Monitors Environmental Conditions
Using a package tracking system to monitor an asset’s location is essential for businesses and non-commercial organizations alike.
