European Vehicle Tracking: 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 tracking 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.

Benefits of European Tracking

  1. Enhanced Visibility: With European tracking, fleet managers gain comprehensive visibility into their vehicles' whereabouts, even when they are operating outside the UK. This visibility enables better decision-making and enhanced operational efficiency.
  2. Improved Route Planning: For drivers navigating unfamiliar roads and locations abroad, European tracking facilitates route planning and navigation. Fleet managers can monitor routes in real-time, ensuring drivers stay on track and reach their destinations safely and on time.
  3. Emergency Assistance: In the event of unforeseen circumstances such as getting lost or encountering heavy traffic, European tracking enables fleet managers to quickly locate their vehicles and provide necessary assistance. Live updates and integrated mapping tools empower fleet managers to guide drivers back on course efficiently.
  4. Compliance and Security: European tracking helps ensure compliance with regulations and enhances vehicle security, even when vehicles cross international borders. Fleet managers can monitor vehicle movements, deter unauthorized use, and take proactive measures to mitigate risks.


European vehicle tracking offers significant benefits for fleet businesses operating across borders. With advanced tracking technology and comprehensive features, fleet managers can effectively monitor their vehicles' movements, improve route planning, and ensure compliance and security, even when operating in unfamiliar territories. At Fleetsmart, we are committed to providing tailored solutions that meet the diverse needs of the fleet industry, empowering businesses to thrive in an increasingly globalized world.
