Winter is coming. As we get closer to the end of the year, temperatures are dropping and conditions are steadily worsening. If your work involves long hours and intense outdoor labor, you are familiar with winter’s effects on your equipment. Tires, fluids, batteries, and technology are often casualties of cold temperatures, ice, and exposure to the elements.
There are many tricks that can help you prevent most winter-caused damages, but telematics devices are more susceptible to the dangers of the cold. Thankfully, Geotab has created a telematics option that is built to withstand cold, wind, rain, and impacts.
