There are many fleet companies in the market and this has made the competition intense. Every fleet owner wants to outmaneuver other and want to earn the most benefit. In order to this he must have a good management system and should rely on tracking technologies.
In order to grow in the fleet business the first thing fleet company requires is a good management system with a good manager. Management helps in smooth working and better coordination between the manager and owner. It?s the responsibility of the manager that he keeps a close eye on the fleet and make sure that the vehicles are not used for any illegal purposes. He must maintain the paperwork related to the work that has been completed, the work that is pending and the work that he has to assign to the driver. He must also have the profile of the driver and data related to items and goods that has been uploaded. Maintenance of the vehicle also comes under the management. He must check the condition of the vehicle regularly especially when it comes back from the fieldwork. He must also send them for regular servicing. All the data collected by the manger must be in order so that it can be used for future reference, bill issues and avoiding unnecessary lawsuits. He must also coordinate with the vehicles wherever they are so that they can be sent to the call as soon as possible.
GPS (Global Position System) and GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System) are the most widely used tracking technologies. They work on the radio signals that are emitted by the satellite and also receive signals from the tower that are near the fleet. They give the exact position of the fleet and vehicles and also tell information about the surrounding which help in taking the most efficient route to the destination.
Because of the rising number of fleet companies it has become essential that the owners and managers make sure that they work hard, using technologies to their extent to grow their business.
