Anti-theft allows tracking of vehicles in real-time and controls it in the case of theft. To prevent vehicle theft, you must implement new systems based on new technologies to help vehicle owners track vehicle, control, and recover it. Tangerine’s anti-theft system includes a combined low-cost, effective, and reliable anti-theft technology to monitor and control stolen vehicles in real-time. 

Some of the most common challenges in fleet security are as follows:

Cargo Theft

Most Cargos include cargo inventory that can sell quickly on the secondary market. The fleets that transport common goods are top targets for thieves. Without the cargo or asset monitoring in place, thieves can break into trailers undetected. The cargo theft causes delivery delays and increases your insurance premiums. With proper anti-theft in place, you can ensure a single source of information from planning to production, enabling companies to lower the risk and reduce cost throughout the supply chain. 

Fuel theft

With more drivers transporting essential goods, instances of fuel theft or card skimming can add up significantly. Without accurate GPS locations of where drivers fill up the fuel tanks, it can be difficult to detect fuel theft and track where cards are skimmed or overfilled. To overcome this problem, Tangerine includes a built-in fuel efficiency module that indicates the fuel tank levels, fuel consumed, and fuel purchases in real time. This data is then compared against a vehicle average, making it easier to detect any abnormalities, or a possible indication of fuel theft. This can also be used to monitor a fleet’s fuel economy. 

Asset recovery

Once vehicles or assets are stolen, it is a challenge to track if they are not equipped with GPS tracking devices. In addition, with the cargo that is often very far away from the main central dispatch office, it is difficult to gain remote visibility into the security of your assets. With an efficient anti-theft device, it is easy to detect when the trailer or container doors open and close for added security and protection.

Fleet Hijacking

To protect against vehicle hijackings, it is critical that the drivers must have a fast way of discrete communication with the main central office. With Tangerine’s fleet management platform, there are alerts that trigger during an emergency situation and provide critical information to aid assistance, including the driver’s exact location.
