UPS is implementing new technology that allows management to monitor package car drivers like never before. Telematics combines data gathered through GPS, the DIAD board and new sensors that are being mounted on package cars.
Click here to see an example of a Telematics printout that management uses to monitor drivers. Through more than 200 sensors, management can monitor when you drive with your seatbelt off or your bulkhead door open, how many times you have driven in reverse and how far and much more.
Telematics tells management how long you stopped at each location, how many packages you processed there, and creates an over-allowed figure for each stop.
