Hi vas,

You could install a WiFi network, and use combined WiFi<>GPRS units

As an option you can try to use satellite communication terminals. They don't need GSM network to send data. They can send data using satellites network.

Using VHF network is not possible?

p.s. we can supply VHF transmitter (146 - 174 Mhz, 5w) with GPS and VHF receiver. This work also with Wialon, based on Wialon IPS protocol.

Vas you could use a Xbee mesh network for the communications. Do they want to monitor the complete movement of the trucks or only when that are in certain locations or passing certain points in the site?

You can also talk to the mobile operator regarding the use of a signal extender, could be a FEMTO solution, or to realign their BTS anntenas. We have done this on a number of sites here in Indonesia.

Re: Tracking vehicles in no GSM area(shadow areas)

i also would prefer gsm-repeaters.
If you have 5km away a working gsm signal, you just need a tower with a yagi antenna and an good GSM repeater with a directed patch panel antenne.
Yagi 15 element or so for 900 MHZ

Than a good repeater (professional carrier grade)

forget the low power repeaters for this...

P.S. VHF/UHF is also a good idea if you get all from one hand like GoGPS

Use "Off-Line monitoring" system.
In vehicle install "Vehicle black box" GuardMagic mTF4 and necessary additional senosrs.

Download information to monitoring PC by satnadrd USB flash drive.
