What is Real-time Tracking?

The tracking method that makes use of GPS as well as logistics databases to determine the current location of a person, vehicle, or object at any moment in time is known as Real-time Tracking. When a parcel is scanned, it is assigned to a vehicle and its position is constantly monitored.

The main benefit of real-time tracking is that if a package gets stuck in traffic or a vehicle needs to take another route then the operator can be informed about it and an alternate solution can be found. The prospective client can also be informed of this change. The aim of RTT, in the long run, is to improve the overall performance of companies. Tracking parcels in real-time without giving sleepless nights to customer service is a great plus of RTT. It also ensures increased transparency and as a result, happy and satisfied clients.
