Applying RFID to Truck, Utility Trailer & RV Rental Services

As long as there is consistent economic activity, the truck rental industry will continue to be an important one. This dynamic business is responsible for providing trucks and trailers to both individuals and commercial enterprises. With a steady rise in home purchases across North America, this industry has seen steady growth over the past several years. Meanwhile, many companies are complementing their vehicle fleets with rental trucks as opposed to buying new ones. One of the industry’s main concerns, however, is the uncertainty of fuel prices, which can impact demand. GAO RFID understands the operational challenges truck rental companies often face. If your organization is looking to streamline its processes, why not consider the powerful advantages of RFID?

Using RFID in the Truck, Utility Trailer & RV Rental Services Industry

Our clients rely on our high-quality systems for a variety of activities in their organization. Whether you’re offering trailer rentals to your commercial clients or leasing RVs to retired couples—GAO RFID can apply its experience in RFID to explore ways to help maximize your efficiency. Below are some common concerns for our clients in the rental services agency.

Question: Our rental agency takes inspiration from the operational model that good car dealerships use. For example, we’d like to monitor our trucks and trailers with the same security standards. Can GAO RFID help?

One of our most powerful products is our Asset Tracking System. This can be used as the platform to develop a way to fit the needs of the truck rental industry.  RFID solutions can tackle a variety of issues from asset tracking to personnel monitoring. Here’s what may be possible if we explore RFID with your rental agency:

  • Track all assets 24/7 with our RFID Tags and RFID Readers, eliminating the need for human attendants
  • Implement secure pick-up and drop-off protocols for customers
  • Know exactly when each transaction took place, even after regular business hours
  • Trigger an alert to managers when a truck or trailer has suspiciously disappeared from the lot

Question: We have a parking lot that is restricted to employees. But other people often park their vehicles here illegally. Is there a way to enforce the rules without hiring a human attendant?

In this scenario, we can apply our Parking Control System. We can explore how RFID Readers can work at your lot’s entry point. Your employees will then be assigned GAO Tags, which are programmed into their security badges. When a Tag transmits a signal to the Reader, the gate will automatically open. If successful, this eliminates the need for a human attendant, while making sure trespassers stay out.
