What Is Sim Based Tracking and How Does It Work?

Team Traqo

SIM-based tracking is a technology used in freight management solutions to track the location and status of shipments in real-time. By using GPS technology and cellular networks, SIM-based tracking allows businesses to have up-to-the-minute visibility into the location and status of their shipments. Here's how it works:

- Driver's SIM card is used as tracking device: The SIM card is a small chip that contains a unique identification number and enables the device to connect to cellular networks.

- The device/phone sends location data via the cellular network: The tracking device uses GPS technology to determine its location and then sends this information, along with other data such as the status of the shipment, via the cellular network to the server.

- The server stores and processes the data: The data from the tracking device is received by the server and stored in a database. The server then processes the data and makes it available to users through a web-based interface or API.

- Users can access the data in real-time: Users can access the data from the server through a web-based interface or API. This allows them to track the location and status of their shipments in real-time and receive updates as the data is received by the server.

- SIM-based tracking is a powerful tool for businesses in the shipping and logistics industry. By providing real-time visibility into the location and status of shipments, it can improve efficiency, accuracy, and security.
