A complete guide to Fleet Management, Logistics and Personal Tracking

Have you ever been involved in a situation where you are out with your family and you confidently park your car and anxiously alight and dash to grab something to eat in a restaurant? After enjoying the sumptuous meal, you happily return back to the parking lot after having paid parking fees only to find your car is missing. It is always a painful tragedy and while standing at that point, so much exhumes you hence detonating millions of unanswerable questions. You decide to rush to the nearest police post only to realize you had not installed any tracking system on it.

Many people suffer from the wrong perception that they live and drive only in safe areas hence having a tracking system is a waste of time and money for them. With the recent increase of car theft incidents, there is a dire need to have a tracking system or a fleet management solution for your vehicle or fleet. Every week, at least six incidents of car thefts are reported. There are car syndicates all over that are always watching the movement of your fleet. These syndicates are devising new ways of stealing cars including jamming tracking systems and deactivating them. Within minutes, the thieves are in control of your car and they drive to their secret hubs where the stolen car is disassembled and sold in spare parts. The car that you worked so hard to buy at a 1.3 million shillings ends up being sold at Kshs. 100,000 in spare parts. 

“On September 6, 2019, I parked my car at Zion Mall, when I went to the parking place two hours later, it was missing. I have positively identified my car’s windscreens,” One victim narrated his story to the press. This is one of the many car theft incidents that have been reported in the media this year. Last week, October 7, police in Eldoret impounded eight stolen cars and arrested seven suspects in connection to the theft. The seven were arrested from Bomet, Kericho and Uasin Gishu counties. On September 15, police officers in Nakuru and Nyeri seized a vehicle they believed was stolen from Nyeri and arrested four suspects. The owner said he had parked the car at Mt. Kenya bottlers but did not find it when he returned. On June 23, five people were arrested in connection with a car theft syndicate in the central region. They were arrested while attempting to sell a car that the police believed had been stolen. On May 26, thugs broke into a residential house stole a motor vehicle and household goods. On January 10, Police in Eldoret unearthed a vehicle theft syndicate where criminals steal cars then dismantle them before selling spare parts to unsuspecting Kenyans. The stories are the same in every part of the country.
