  1. It can track the process of cargo transportation in real-time.
  2. Rational scheduling and use of various resources such as vehicles, and warehouses.
  3. Provide customers with quality service and real-time information inquiries.

Application of 4G GPS tracker in the logistics industry

As far as the application is concerned, the 4G GPS tracker is an information collection terminal that can collect the terminal’s latitude and longitude, GPS time, and running speed. The collected data is sent to the server through wireless transmission, and users can view it through the system software and cell phone APP. 4G GPS tracker in logistics more accurately demonstrates the application of GPS in logistics information.

The functions of the GPS system and terminal mainly include the following aspects.

1.Centralized management

You can centrally manage all your logistics transportation vehicles under one account. You can see the distribution of all vehicles on the electronic map of the GPS positioning system, and you can know the specific location and driving situation of all vehicles in each area. This way, managers can see which vehicles are available and facilitate reasonable dispatching.

2. Past track replay

The administrator can check the past track of any vehicle and see the status and route of the vehicle in the process of driving. According to the vehicle trajectory, both logistics companies and customers have a good understanding of the cargo transportation process, which can be used as the basis for evaluation.

3. Real-time positioning

Through positioning query, the administrator can see the real-time location, travel direction, and travel speed of any vehicle. It can not only grasp the transportation status of vehicles but also make reasonable scheduling.

4. Electronic fence

The fenced area can be set on the electronic map according to the vehicle mileage and travel route. When a logistics vehicle enters or leaves the area, it sends fence alarm information to the system.

5. Over-speed alarm

The administrator can set the speed value. When the vehicle driving speed exceeds the set value, it will immediately send out the overspeed alarm information. The administrator can remind the driver to pay attention to safe driving.
