Fleet Management

Here are 5 primary obstacles faced by Fleet owners and transporters and how Trimble helps in overcoming these obstacles.

1. Obstacle- No real-time visibility of vehicles

The most common obstacle faced by fleet owners is that they have visibility of their vehicles (as promised) but that visibility is not in real time (as required). Hence, the information isn’t of much importance and fails to match the requirements of the fleet owners who wish to track their vehicles in real time.

At Trimble, Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) provides real-time visibility, information as well as exception reporting of vehicles. As a result of these, GPS tracking of the fleet and it’s whereabouts become an accurate, easy and convenient task. Sit back and track effortlessly with Trimble.

2. Obstacle- Safety at Risk

Safety of the vehicle and driver is one of the topmost essentials in fleet management. Safety of both driver and the vehicle is put to risk when there is no proper usage of the vehicle by the driver or when the vehicle is not in its best condition for usage, leading to higher probabilities of risky consequences.

3. Obstacle- Rash driving by the driver

The driving mannerisms of the driver have a significant impact on the well-being of the vehicle, safety and the overall journey as well. Rash driving by the driver is an obstacle that bothers most fleet owners as the harsh application of brakes, over speeding and other acts of harsh usage of vehicle lead to losses that are troublesome to repair.

Solution– Driver Performance Analysis at Trimble

By virtue of this, fleet owners can have control over their drivers’ behaviors, thus ensuring adherence with safety norms and safety of the fleet.

4. Obstacle- Lack of productivity and unachieved optimum usage

The core cause of less productivity derived from vehicles is too much time, effort and excess resources spent on the maintenance and not on optimum usage. Deviated routes and unscheduled stops lead to increased turnaround time and decreased productivity.
