Preventative Maintenance for Transportation Vehicles
Preventative maintenance is a huge issue for semi trucks and the trailers they carry. GPS monitoring devices help transportation companies optimize their maintenance scheduling.
With remote GPS monitoring devices, it’s possible to remotely collect key engine performance statistics and total mileage data. Using this information, fleet managers can earmark specific vehicles for preventative maintenance.
By identifying specific risk factors and prioritizing them for repair, you can minimize the risk of an on-the-road breakdown that interrupts your shipments and costs even more to fix than simple preventative work would. An ounce of maintenance is really worth a pound of repairs.
Increased Efficiency of Your Transportation Fleet
With important performance metrics, route data, use data, and other statistics at your disposal, it’s possible to improve the overall efficiency of your transportation vehicle fleet.
GPS fleet management software can help improve project management with reports that detail both actual mileage and performance statistics for every vehicle in your fleet. Turn-by-turn use data helps you track driver behaviors, and make improvements by spotting bad habits and bringing them to a driver’s attention.
With accurate use data, you can better track actual fuel consumption, helping to curtail fuel theft and fraud.
Having the right data can mean the difference between a highly efficient fleet that generates generous profits, and massive operational losses.
