The Best Fleet Management Solutions

Saturday, April 20th, 2013
Are you new to the fleet industry? If you are new, it is time to get familiar with the best fleet management practices.
What happens in modern fleet operations?
Predominately modern fleet operations are focused on external suppliers.
Vehicles are sourced and supplier relationships are made top priorities.
When your fleet management is outsourced, it is important that engagement with suppliers remains.
This engagement with suppliers is crucial because day to day fleet management cannot be successful  without supplier engagement.
Fleet management includes carrying out supplier audits and reviewing and processing KPI’s.
Top fleet management should support fleet policy and understand the company’s overall company strategy.
Here are some best fleet management practices:
  1. GPS tracking to monitor multiple assets.
  2. Hire safe drivers. These are drivers that drive the speed limit, safely change lanes, signal and follow other traffic laws.
  3. Have a good fleet manager that is comfortable working in fast paced, high stress environments. The fleet manager should collect and store all vehicle data and driver data.
