Do you have a proactive maintenance plan in place and the buy-in from the various stakeholders within the company to stick to this plan? If your answer is no, we can give you some advice on setting one up.
Set up a scheduled maintenance plan
Stick to the OEM of each truck but also keep in mind the operating condition of each vehicle. Globaltrack has a great maintenance feature in place to help you set up scheduled maintenance.
Ensure that you have a contingency budget in place to replace key truck components if required. Mercedes-Benz offers genuine remanufactured parts that is checked and tested in accordance with strict Mercedes-Benz standards. The savings achieved from raw materials and energy saves customers up to 30% in cost, provided that their old parts meet Mercedes’ core criteria.
Keep your maintenance schedule updated
Ensure that the maintenance plan is updated with the latest information and the next service date is scheduled for each asset.
If breakdowns are happening between planned maintenance, you might need to adjust the maintenance schedule. Capture breakdown events, what happened and what was done on each vehicle.
Align people and processes to the maintenance plan
Ensure that people, processes and technology are in place to maintain the company’s proactive maintenance plan to automatically track, manage and measure service events in real-time. You can leverage on Globaltrack’s maintenance feature to spot wear and tear and failure trends.
Set the standard repair times to ensure that trucks are scheduled for maintenance well in advance.
There are many benefits to having a preventative maintenance plan in place, such as increased asset utilization, reduced downtime and bringing the cost of vehicle ownership down.
