A low-cost vehicle tracking system that provides fleets with on-demand location information has been introduced by Penske Truck Leasing.
Called Fleet InSite, it combines a GPS receiver with a cellular data modem to capture and transmit vehicle locations histories that include date, time, speed, latitude/longitude, travel direction and address. Fleets can request current locations and view maps of all vehicle movements through a Fleet InSite web site.
Cost for hardware, installation and service start at $10/month and can be included in leasing charges, according to Penske. The new service is currently available to all Penske full-service leasing customers in North American and will eventually be offer to contract maintenance customers as well, according to the company.
