Clearly, all economic organization, or company, must develop strategies to protect the valuable objects that it has as well as the equipment and the personnel that it produces. In this task, the use of technology has been decisive, and its advances allow adapting the different security systems as the exposure to danger increases.

The companies in charge of transporting values are one of the most favoured with systems such as GPS Tracking Software, which allows to monitor in real time the exact position of their vehicles. These, in conjunction with other transport companies, gave the go to a tool that has proven its effectiveness and that over the years has become widespread even for domestic use. The logistics used to implement this type of technology is advanced, the system allows reacting seconds after the occurrence of an event and to trace safe and rotating routes.
A technology that complements

In principle, when the GPS technology became known, it was a triangulation that allows knowing the exact position of an element when a device is installed. In technical matters, the system consists of that. However, the product of the massification in its use has incorporated additional benefits.
