Tracking delivery systems rely on location technology in tracked vehicles. The most commonly known vehicle tracking system is GPS. By using it, devices and applications collect location data, allow fleet tracking in real time, and offer route recommendations. The quality of such applications created by developers determines the effectiveness of tracking solutions. Let’s delve into the details of how logistics tracking software work and what are the types of delivery tracking software.
How does the Tracking Software (GPS) work?
Online delivery tracking software works by relying on three main types of technology, and Global Positioning System (GPS) is one of them. The other two include Radio-frequency identification (RFID) and On-Board Diagnostics (OBD). Each technology has its functionality:
– RFID facilitates the control and tracking of the items.
– GPS provides real-time information on routes, including location, route, and other conditions.
– OBD collects and stores information on driving conditions and vehicle maintenance. It can also assist with fleet management by displaying alerts and requesting actions.
In the past, these elements required extensive human control and interaction to ensure coordination and control. The Internet of Things (IoT) has changed that by enabling communication between machines and systems directly. Such an interaction became possible due to the progress made in the network systems.
The larger capacity of these systems enabled the transfer of the larger data packages at a higher speed. At the same time, the capabilities of the new processors allowed for receiving the data, analyzing it, and making decisions. The autonomy of the IoT-based logistics tracking solutions is their main advantage.

The ‘time is money’ principle is most tangible with the delivery of products. The process needs to be fast and transparent. You will only earn a customer’s trust if they know exactly where and in what state their product is at any given time.
We see the solution in creating the app with location tracking and data synchronization between driver and admin systems.
We make a simple application for drivers to report about delivery status in real time. So admins are able to see the map with all current deliveries and receive notifications if any delivery doesn’t move for a given period of time.
Even more, we create a tasks distribution system, which allows us to automatically remove delivery tasks from the existing SAAP and distribute them to specific drivers by warehouse dispatchers.
Food Delivery Tracking Software
For many businesses, the reality has altered dramatically since the pandemic’s beginning. The COVID-19 outbreak has had a particularly negative impact on tourism, entertainment, and HoReCa industries.
The only way for the restaurant business to stay afloat was to introduce technical solutions like cashless payments, online ordering, and delivery. As a result, the food delivery market has developed significantly and will continue to grow by 15% each year.
Typically, restaurants employ third-party services for handling their food delivery operations. These solutions are marketplaces that feature various dining venues. Consumers can choose the restaurant they need and place an order directly through the app. The restaurant, in turn, receives the order, confirms, and prepares it. Then the courier service joins the workflow, delivering orders from the venue to its customers.
Food delivery apps for restaurants completely digitalize the ordering and delivery process. They also provide various payment options available directly in the application. Consumers love that they can order and pay for the meal with their smartphones with just a few taps.
The biggest advantage of delivery order tracking software is, as you can guess, real-time data. You can get real-time data such as customer info and order. With real-time tracking, drivers can avoid areas of high traffic and opt for better & faster routes to achieve high accuracy and precision.

Nowadays there are a bunch of smart ways to produce food more efficiently and of higher quality. Nevertheless, lots of goods are wasted because of inefficiencies during transportation. Most of the wastage could be reduced via delivery management.
Real-time cargo tracking has become essential for successful delivery and brings a lot of benefits:
– Ability to view the progress of the driver. You can check at any time if workers are following the route.
– Quick response. In the case of unforeseen events like traffic jams or crashes, the geolocation system provides immediate help by finding alternative routes or assigning the delivery to another agent.
– Good customer experience. Buyers want to be regularly informed by email or SMS about the delivery status, so you always know what to say.
TRIARE adapts to all these clients’ needs to develop excellent logistics apps. We design applications that allow quickly identifying a possible problem and acting on it on time.
