Indicators for improving productivity through the rational use of the vehicle fleet.
There are two main components involved in fleet management analysis: the on-board computer fitted to each vehicle, and the management application that utilizes the data collected in the vehicles.
If your strategy is to improve productivity, rational use of the vehicle fleet and fleet optimization will enable you to achieve your aim.
Each business has specific information and management requirements
From waste collection to delivery services, not forgetting hauliers, various tools can help to improve the productivity of the business by centralizing field information and redistributing it to the different people involved. For example, financial fleet management concentrates on all the financial activities related to managing a fleet of vehicles, whereas operational fleet management aims to optimize the interactions between the business, the drivers and the commercial vehicles.
Operational fleet management
The fleet manager needs to have an exhaustive inventory of the fleet: vehicles, personnel, plant, equipment, trucks, cost centers, etc.
This provides a reliable basis for managing the fleet properly and keeping track of the expenses and costs of each vehicle.
Logistics management: entry in/exit from the fleet, maintenance, replacement vehicles
Allocation of vehicles
Objective decision making
Financial fleet management
The reports or dashboards available in the application provide essential indicators for financial fleet management.
Cost control: actual fuel consumption data, total or by vehicle, cost-per-mile management, private/business mileage breakdown, maintenance management, CO2 emissions, tire management, incident and accident management
Analysis tools: by group, person, vehicle, residual fleet value, odometer and preventive management
Control all the vehicle expenses
You can predict and find ways of limiting expenses and improving control of your fleet. Preventive maintenance equates with better cost control.
Objectivize decision making on cost items
Getting a full picture of your fleet and having all the data available will enable you to generate cost and consumption level reports.
