4. Vehicle Conduction Monitoring
Vehicles that are not in optimal condition can often be a source of unnecessary fuel waste. Poorly inflated tires, loose gas caps and vehicle damage can all lead to poor fuel economy and increased company costs.
Pre-trip checklists are a key piece of any fleet fuel management system. By identifying problems in real-time, managers can address small inefficiencies as they arise, keep operations running smoothly and conveniently capture data for increased visibility.
5. Better Service Schedules
While vehicle monitoring systems can identify unexpected problems that arise during normal operations, consistent maintenance schedules can reduce the frequency of these inconvenient events. Additionally, a well-maintained vehicle can operate at maximum efficiency to help fuel dollars stretch farther.
Telematics can provide automated maintenance schedules for all fleet vehicles to ensure optimal maintenance. With effective maintenance schedules, vehicle wear-and-tear is minimized and the likelihood of costly downtime from significant mechanical problems is reduced.
