Geofence
Geofences are virtual boundaries that are created around a specific geographical area. This area can be a specific location, such as a warehouse, a delivery area, a customer’s area, a restricted zone, etc.

Geofences are created by setting up specific GPS coordinates and defining a radius around them and mark them as Stay-in zones or Stay Away From zones. Once a geofence is set up, the platform can track when an object enters or exits the geofences. The user can set this up as per their preferences. Using this, the users can better monitor and manage their fleet.

Users can upload geofences one by one or in bulk. To upload geofences consider the following steps.
