Auto fleet management involves a process of tracking vehicles by using a GPS system that is capable of gathering many different kinds of information, and all this information can then be used to improve the performance of your fleet as well as your drivers. It can also help reduce costs, particularly by saving on gas, and it can cut down on unsafe driving practices and speeding.
