Frequently Asked Questions About Automatic Vehicle Location Systems

What does AVL mean in fleet management?

The acronym ‘AVL’ stands for automatic vehicle location and this is accomplished with the use of GPS or telematics. Fleet managers now have the opportunity to monitor their fleet, performance and issues in real time if an AVL system is incorporated within a truly integrated fleet management system. Knowing where all fleet vehicles are at all times, which are in need of maintenance, vehicle operating KPIs and fuel levels help fleet managers do their job in real-time.

What can I, as a fleet manager, do with AVL?

The most effective thing a fleet manager can do with their fleet telematics system is to integrate this technology and information into the enterprise fleet management software so  receive real-time information and then automate this information into automated alerts, work orders and reports.

What additional information does an 'AVL' system give me as a fleet manager?

An Automatic Vehicle Location System provides a fleet manager with real-time answers often required to manage a fleet properly. Answers to questions such as:
- Where are my vehicles at this  point in time?
- What are my vehicles or equipment doing?
- Are my vehicles in authorized areas?
- What direction are my vehicles traveling?
- Who  is operating a specific vehicle?
- Which vehicle or equipment needs fuel?

How can a GPS fleet tracking system help improve an organization’s safety record?

A GPS can ensure the operator has adequate training and is authorized to operate the vehicle or equipment. GPS systems can track real-time vehicle location, speed, excessive stopping or acceleration, alerting managers where additional training may be needed.

How can a GPS improve public works fleet operations?

Public works perform numerous tasks involving various vehicles and equipment, often covering a large geographic region. Accountability to managers, municipal officials, and the public is paramount. An AVL solution can provide the following benefits:

  • Route planning can assist in the more efficient execution of work.  
  • GPS can help manage assets and deploy the right equipment to the right job. Enjoy instant location verification with at-a-glance location and status.
  • Improve your health and safety record by restricting the unauthorized use of vehicles or identify needed training to eliminate excessive starts, braking and speed. 
  • Track activities of your winter road maintenance, street sweeper and spraying operations. 
  • Live and historical tracking of work performed and projects accomplished for complete accountability.
How can a GPS improve construction fleet operations?

Construction companies operate in a highly competitive environment. Construction companies continually search for ways to complete projects more efficiently and effectively. Here is how GPS can improve operational efficiencies and competitiveness with a construction fleet:

  • Ensure your assets are being operated effectively and efficiently with real-time tracking.
  • Know who is operating the asset. Ensure that only authorized and trained operators have clearance to run specialized equipment.
  • Improve the safety of your operations. Identify when operation thresholds are compromised. Provide the needed training to the operators in need, which in turn will reduce your insurance premiums.
  • Improve the life of your assets by monitoring hours of operation, idle time and engine fault codes. Schedule the needed maintenance to keep operations running smoothly and reduce equipment downtime.
  • Having all the information a GPS can provide allows you to improve your profitability and, more importantly, become sharper and more competitive in your bidding process. Win more projects and remain profitable.
  • Construction projects often occur in remote areas where theft can be a concern. Protect your fleet assets with the benefits of theft recovery. 
How can a GPS improve mining and energy fleet operations?

The efficiency and operational reliability of your mining operations are vital to ensure profitability for the company. Equipment failure means downtime and reduced production. This is costly. Fuel is also a significant expense in your operating budget. GPS solutions offer many benefits to the fleet manager, such as:

  • Monitor and reduce idling time to reduce fuel costs.
  • Efficient route planning will reduce the fuel consumption of your heavy equipment, such as haul trucks. 
  • Schedule timely maintenance around production demands by monitoring your asset’s hours of operation and idling time.
  • Reduce accidents and insurance premiums by restricting equipment and vehicle operation to only authorized and adequately trained.
  • As mines age, profitability drops and the information a GPS offers can extend the period of profitable operations. 
  • Know what is happening in real-time in your remote field operations from the comfort of your office.
