Abstract: New technologies reach public utility enterprises with difficulty and are slow in finding their everyday application in less developed cities and municipalities in Serbia, particularly when it comes to the utilities of public interest to urban areas. Certain developmental attempts to introduce new technologies have provided initial results, primarily in increasing the effectiveness and optimization of certain work process costs. These attempts are present in a small number of communities and utility companies. This paper provides an example of an advanced system (expert shell) for controlling the process of solid waste collection and transportation within the fleet management system of a public utility company. Characteristic control methods, which are based on tracking the selected parameters in real-time and post-processing of the realized vehicle routes, are shown in the paper. Part of the original software algorithm to support the monitoring of the system and the analysis of the obtained results is also shown. The paper indicates the importance of using modern GPS technology in improving similar systems of city logistics. The original measured and calculated vehicle tracking parameters were used in the paper.
