MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Cancom Tracking recently announced the launch of a new product, Route Tracker.

After completing extensive market research, Cancom concludes that Route Tracker fills industry requirements as a high quality, cost effective data solution.

This low cost GPS and engine diagnostic tracking system is ideal for private, dedicated, fixed routing and local fleets. Route Tracker offers GPS tracking, vehicle activity recording, incident recording and automated IFTA fuel and mileage reporting.

Route Tracker has been in the market for over two years and is a proven technology. Home Hardware has outfitted its entire national fleet with Route Tracker.

"Route Tracker has allowed us to automate IFTA fuel tax filing, replace tacographs and automatically monitor fleet operations. Monitoring actual routes, speeds, service times and idle times are a good first step in reducing fuel costs and improving the productivity and safe operation of our fleet," said Gerry Gerber, Home Hardware Fleet Operations Manager.

Route Tracker is an innovative solution that all segments of the transportation industry can benefit from, added Colin Warkentin, President of Turnpike Global Technologies.

The ability to track actual vehicle miles and activity, monitor exceptions with automated reporting, increase driver productivity, and improve accident investigation, are a few benefits generated from Route Tracker.

This technology is designed so that once the truck is within 100 meters from the terminal, data is downloaded and detailed reports are automatically generated including information such as where the vehicle has been and how it was driven. Other available reports include exception based reporting (excessive speed, stop times, service times, out of route miles) and incident recorder (for accident investigation and monitoring safety).

"Cancom is continuously searching, testing and bringing to market products and services that provide value-added solutions for the Canadian transportation industry. Route Tracker is the ideal tracking and reporting solution for fleets that require accurate easy to manage data,"
Mike Ham, Vice President of Cancom Tracking said.
