Information and communication technologies (ICT) became an unavoidable factor in optimization of transport processes. In that way, positioning the vehicle represents an essential element for transport companies in their intention to improve the fleet management. There are various technologies applicable for this purpose, but the one discussed in this paper and given as possible solution is using a new telecommunication architecture based on Internet Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). This solution is represented in a form of Server based IMS application whose execution is achieved fleet management control by transport companies. To enable this kind of control it is necessary to perform tracking vehicle position or define a route of movement. IMS as a platform that allows provisioning a new generation telecommunication services also gives a possibility to use the existing infrastructure of mobile networks (GSM, UMTS) for this purpose. Application based on this system allows its users to access the preferred information at any earths location and time either, receives an alarm in a form of SMS, MMS, e-mail and being informed about the possible diversion of the pre-set route. To locate the vehicle, here is used appropriate algorithm based on standard data base and data inputs related on the position of the vehicle in regard to the base station mobile networks and any kind of standard maps, Google or similar.
