Tracking 101: What Industries Can Utilize GPS Tracking?  

GPS tracking is changing the game for many industries due to its versatility and ability to optimize many facets of operations. Unlike what you might initially think, GPS tracking isn’t just for maps or location data but can optimize logistics, enhance safety, and more.    

There are a number of industries that can benefit from GPS tracking, so we’re breaking down just a few and how GPS trackers are utilized:   

Oil and Gas  

GPS tracking plays a crucial role in the oil and gas industry by providing accurate location data and improving operational efficiency, safety, and environmental management. From an efficiency standpoint, GPS helps companies monitor the location and status of valuable assets such as drilling rigs, vehicles, pipelines, and equipment, which allows for better asset allocation, reducing downtime, and optimizing resource utilization. Even within offshore drilling, GPS can monitor the location and status of floating platforms and vessels.
