Mapon Lietuva: Using smart fuel caps is like having a good insurance policy

Fuel prices have been known to fluctuate time and time again, which is why we’ve recognised that each time the prices spike, so do the numbers in fuel thefts. While the current situation seems familiar, it’s different, as there’s no way of telling if and when the prices will go down again.

Mapon Expert – an advanced telemetry device for effective fleet management

When Mapon started out, it was common for fleet management service providers to develop their own hardware, as very few mass market tracking devices were available at the time.

What’s even more interesting – there is still no answer as to why this situation arose and how to resolve it.
