One of the biggest keys to keeping your fleet drivers safe on the road is by incorporating a powerful driver education program. From new employee to ongoing to maintenance to technology training - and everything in between - don’t underestimate the power of a well-trained team.
Fleet managers have a big job, full of scheduling jobs, managing drivers, and maintaining fleet vehicles. Just like every job, however, there are areas that can be both forgotten and also be improved upon.
Geofencing is a valuable technology that many fleet managers are now paying attention to and putting to good use. This GPS-enabled software enables fleets to verify stops and time, trigger exception reporting, and manage assets. In a sense, it takes GPS tracking and management to the next level.
In the fleet world, your drivers are your livelihood. When drivers aren’t as efficient or effective as possible on the road, it’s likely they could be decreasing your fleet’s overall success.
Fleet dispatchers are an essential part of the fleet team. Whether they are a member of the team (such as the manager) wearing an additional hat, or a position unto itself, it’s important to have the role in place...and to take it seriously.
