Managing a fleet of trucks involves a variety of activities and costs which must be constantly monitored in order to reduce overall expenses and maintain a decent profit for the business.
There are maintenance records that must be tracked, fuel costs monitored and driving habits supervised to ensure that each area is being optimally maintained.
To streamline all these records try using GPS truck trackers in each of your vehicles and you will remove all the manual record keeping and have accurate information available all the time.
Monitor truck maintenance schedules
Maintenance may seem like an unnecessary burden at times, but we all know that without maintenance our trucks will not operate optimally. When you install GPS truck trackers in your truck fleet you will be able to monitor all routine maintenance and ensure that they are completed within the recommended schedules.
Lower fuel costs with GPS truck trackers
Fuel cost optimisation is often an overlooked feature of truck fleet planning but with GPS truck trackers you will be able to lower fuel costs for all the trucks in your fleet and save money at the same time.
GPS truck trackers give you the capability to track the location and planned route of each truck and avoid delays due to traffic, construction or accidents. And of course when your drivers avoid being stuck in traffic they will not sit idling in their trucks which saves on fuel consumption.
Additionally, by tracking fuel consumption in each of your trucks you can monitor their performance on the road and identify potential mechanical issues if fuel consumption suddenly changes.
Avoid truck driving abuse
Finally, GPS truck trackers give you the tools to monitor driving habits of each truck driver in your fleet.
By watching for frequent hard braking or jack rabbit accelerations you can correct these habits before they damage your trucks. Most of the time just the knowledge that vehicles are being monitored is enough to protect the trucks in your fleet from abuse.
GPS truck trackers can provide numerous opportunities to streamline costs managing your truck fleet. From the first day they are installed you will begin seeing the numerous benefits they bring to your truck fleet management and a reduction in overall costs.
