SpeedGauge, a provider of business intelligence and location-based analytics for the trucking and insurance industry, has announced the release of SpeedGaugeAnywhere, which enables fleets to create speed zones around any custom location that is not subject to government set speed limits.
Through SpeedGaugeAnywhere, fleets are able to set up speed zones in unique areas, ranging from logging roads to oil fields, container ports to airports. Fleets can create custom speeds within these zones and monitor speeding violations just as they can on interstates and city streets.
"The majority of our business serves the forestry and mining industries but forest and mine roads often aren't identified on the map, let alone monitored for speed," said Ralph Bowler, driver supervisor, with Lomak Bulk Carriers of Prince George British Columbia. Lomak has been beta testing SpeedGaugeAnywhere since October 2011. "Due to seasonal operations, safe driving habits are even more important. SpeedGaugeAnywhere enables us to quickly set speed limits and monitor unsafe driving performance on these critical roads and access ways."
