Software can now help you to find the quickest, most energy efficient routes for deliveries or other journeys. This will help to keep your costs down by finding the best routes possible, and saving your drivers time, meaning they can make more deliveries in a day.
Minimising Repair Costs & Potential Damage
Safety checks and routine maintenance inspections will help to spot potential damage before it worsens. It can also help to identify serious issues before vehicles are taken out on the roads. This promotes safety for drivers and minimises the costs of repairs, as problems have been identified at the earliest stage.
Monitor Driver Routes
Tracking systems and GPS systems can help you to track driver routes, so you can monitor where your vehicle is going, which routes are being taken and how much time the vehicle is spending idle. Monitoring routes can help you to coordinate your fleet and ensure that drivers are following the optimal routes.
Ensuring that the correct vehicle is used for deliveries and other journeys is another essential part of fleet management. Using small commercial vans for smaller journeys, and larger vehicles for more heavy duty deliveries will help with fuel economy and the efficiency of the deliveries.
