With a new fleet management solution, deployed in just 30 days, transportation firm A.N. Webber has decreased idling by 15 to 20 percent.
When GPS-based fleet tracking solutions first emerged, most operators were happy to be able to use the technology to answer a basic question: “Where’s my truck?” Over time, new fleet solutions have emerged that can provide greater insight into and control over routing, improved dispatching, vehicle maintenance, safety, and regulatory compliance.
For early adopters, moving beyond the location-only model of fleet management can be an important competitive differentiator. And if you’re a first-time user of fleet management, it’s important to understand the capabilities of today’s fleet management solutions go far beyond just track-and-trace functionality. You want to consider all of the value a fleet management solution can bring your organization, not just the location visibility.
