Do you have all the right components in place to run a successful fleet and decrease your bottom line costs? Let us take you through four components crucial to running a successful fleet.
- Vehicles – Think of the types and make of vehicles that you own, the number of trucks you need and how you plan to maintain them. Consider giving clear set of objectives and responsibilities to drivers and fleet operators for vehicle maintenance. It can be great to include these stakeholders into your fleet planning sessions, to foster an invested interest into the goals and implementation thereof.
- Replacement of vehicles – Keep updated records of when vehicles need to be replaced. Stick to the OEM of each truck but also be mindful of the operating condition of each vehicle. Globaltrack has a great maintenance feature in place to help you set up the replacement date of each asset and scheduled maintenance.
- Improved collaboration between departments – In order for the fleet to run as effectively as possible, you need collaboration between departments to share in this common goal. This ensures that money is available for maintenance and vehicle replacements. Consider the current and future needs of your fleet and priorities to attend to them accordingly; to avoid unforeseen cost and downtime.
- Energy Efficiency – Put strategies in place to improve the efficiency of your fleet, with a long-term goal of lowering the cost of wear and tear and fuel expenditures. Allow drivers to contribute to the success of your business by rewarding them for practising safe driving and looking after your equipment. Globaltrack has a great system in place for monitoring drivers that can be used during performance appraisals. Reward drivers that drive with fuel efficiency in mind and set up bench marks of measuring the performance of your fleet. Globaltrack’s Fuel Dashboard shows how much your fleet’s fuel consumption is and how much you should be spending, by looking at the model and make of the fleet.
