Fleet professionals often have a lot on their plates. As fleets can feel overwhelmed by the number of tasks they are required to address for proper operations, fleet productivity may suffer.
However, there exists a plethora of practices and tools that can be implemented into day-to-day routines to increase overall fleet productivity; therefore, increasing revenue.
• Utilizing telematics. Telematics not only has the ability to track drivers, but the data provided can compile and be turned into actionable concepts to improve fleet productivity. With telematics, fleet managers can learn ways to optimize driving routes and reduce unnecessary driver behavior–pinpointing where the company needs improvements.
• Maintenance programs. Staying aware of fleet maintenance needs, like when to cycle out older vehicles, could cause fleet companies to be more productive. In the case of a faulty accident, improperly maintained vehicles causing major injury or fatality could result in a costly lawsuit.
• Safety as a focus. Safety metrics is a key aspect of fleet productivity. Focusing on driver safety could close any windows that may be leading to myriad issues that will hinder fleet productivity. It is important to push for proactive strategies as opposed to being reactive to issues that arise.
•Factoring fuel. As fuel is the largest expense for fleets, tracking fuel expenses by utilizing a fleet fuel card can significantly cut fuel theft and unauthorized employee spending. With this technology, spending limits and restrictions can be set to ensure the company is driving towards the optimization of fuel costs versus sedentary measures.
