Safeguard Your Fleet: Cutting-edge Asset Tracking Delivers Security

The security of equipment is critical to every business. In the world of construction, equipment loss means more than just an inconvenience. It could mean significant delays and lost revenue for every hour the equipment isn’t in use.

Recently, EagleRidge Energy, LLC experienced a significant equipment loss. They were able to quickly recover their assets and avoid business disruption thanks to their asset tracking solution from Fleet Hoster and Geotab.


EagleRidge Energy, a pipeline and construction company, relies on asset tracking devices to monitor their pipeline ATVs and construction skid steer. These devices allow them to monitor the location and usage patterns of their assets, identify suspicious activities, and implement security protocols before any theft occurs. This proactive approach to asset management adds an extra layer of protection, contributing to a safer and more secure work environment.

Little did they know that these devices would prove to be a game-changer when faced with a security issue.

Asset Tracking to the Rescue

EagleRidge Energy had an early morning wakeup call they didn’t expect. It was discovered that a 12-foot trailer and Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) had been stolen from an employee’s driveway. The employee promptly contacted the police and the company. While the police began their investigation, the supervisor managing the asset tracking devices sprang into action.

Using the Geotab platform, the supervisor traced the assets equipped with Fleet Hoster devices to a location 52 miles away. They altered police to the location where a suspect was apprehended and EagleRidge Energy recovered their assets. All of this within just a few hours and saving a potential $30,000 loss and significant business disruption.

"If it hadn’t been for the tracking device, that equipment would be long gone. So, thanks to Fleet Hoster devices for that."

— Cindi Kruse, EagleRidge Energy
