Logistics refers to the use of modern information technology and equipment to accurately, timely, safe, quality and quantity, door-to-door rationalized service mode and advanced service flow from the place of supply to the receiving place. Activities that include basic functions such as transportation, handling, storage, storage, packaging, loading and unloading, distribution processing, and logistics information processing. Logistics comes with the emergence of commodity production, and develops with the development of commodity production, so logistics is an ancient traditional economic activity.
The application of GPS technology in the field of logistics is that the logistics enterprise monitors the transportation of trucks and goods in real time through the GPS logistics monitoring and management system, so that customers can know the position and status of vehicles and goods at any time, and at the same time, the journey and fuel consumption of the vehicles. Real-time monitoring to ensure effective monitoring and rapid operation of the entire logistics process.
The use of GPS logistics monitoring and management system can improve the transportation capacity of logistics vehicles, the utilization rate of storage sites and reduce the fuel consumption of freight vehicles; monitor and guarantee the safety of passengers, vehicles and goods; and provide value-added services to logistics enterprises and customers. Including the customer’s precise location of the logistics vehicle, the delivery time of the goods, and the real-time status of the vehicle, the customer’s peace of mind is truly assured.
The functions of GPS logistics monitoring and management system:
1.Fuel consumption test
The vehicle terminal periodically transmits the fuel consumption data to the GPS logistics monitoring and management system through the wireless network, in particular, monitors the fueling information and the abnormal fuel consumption information, and promptly makes an alarm prompt, and can create the management report.
2.Carriage alarm detection
The GPS logistics monitoring and management system detects the state of the door of the cargo box in real time during transportation. If it detects that the cargo box is illegally opened during transportation, it will immediately sent an alarm message to the system.
The customer needs to know the status of the goods at any time during transportation. The customer can obtain the information in three ways： the WEB GIS system, the supervision phone, and the SMS. Through these three methods, customers could get information such as the location of vehicle, route planning, and the status of cargo.
4.Unified Information Management
Due to there is a large number of vehicles, centralized and unified information management is required.The management content contains the basic information of the vehicle (such as license plate number, vehicle type, tonnage, color, etc.), insurance information (theft insurance, nature insurance, etc.), safety records, accidents, loans, etc. The system will collect all this information of the vehicle, and provide modification, deletion and query functions.
