Can I Use Vehicle Tracking Abroad?

Here at Fleetsmart, we want to provide the best services possible to the fleet industry by offering products that are suitable for all kinds of fleet businesses and we believe that if your business vehicles operate overseas, you should be able to track their movement. That's why we’ve introduced European tracking, which allows fleets to use vehicle tracking abroad.

Advanced European Tracking Technology

Our European tracking feature uses the latest GSM and GPS technologies so that you can track your fleet across Europe. With an optional roaming add-on and time zone support, you can run reports, track real-time locations and receive alerts to your PC or mobile, whenever your vehicles are near specified places, like country borders and ports. This tool can be particularly useful if your drivers are less familiar with roads and locations outside of the UK as it allows you to plan their route and ensure they stick to it. Should they come off route, find themselves lost or approaching heavy traffic, you can quickly locate them through live updates and adjust their route with integrated mapping all the way from your office in the UK (or anywhere else with an internet connection, for that matter) to help them get back on a steady course and reach their destination safely and on time.

Prevent Theft and Exportation

Not only can you use vehicle tracking to manage your fleet effectively, but you can also use it to prevent the theft of your vehicles. According to Farsight, a vehicle is stolen every 9 minutes in the UK and nowadays, stolen cars are often shipped overseas and refurbished or painted with all identification removed, so they can’t be traced. Your vehicle tracking system will help to stop this kind of theft.
