Every vehicle in fleet business has installed fleet GPS system in order to keep tab about their every activity. GPS system also helps a fleet company against any unwanted lawsuit as they keep record of every activity and every work. They also keep record of the bills and items and goods that are delivered.
One other concern for the fleet owners and manager is the overall operational cost, they try to reduce it in one way or another. Operational cost involves vehicle maintenance, overtime charge and fuel usage.
When a fleet owner use GPS like tracking devices in every vehicle it helps the driver to take the most perfect and shortest route to the destination thus saving some fuel, also it give information of traffic and helps the driver to avoid them.
If the driver knows that he is being watched, thus automatically reduces the number of halts and also the time of the halt. Also a driver chooses the shortest distance to the destination. Thus the delivery is made on time and overtime cost is reduced.
Vehicles are driving force and backbone of the fleet business and they must be maintained properly and manager should try to extend their life as much as possible. To do this a vehicle must be regularly checked and serviced specially when it returns from fieldwork. GPS keep tabs of the condition of the vehicle and alerts the manager when the vehicle needs servicing.
GPS system helps maintain the security of the vehicle as well. Also they insure that the driver follows all rules while driving. As they keep record about the tire pressure, cut off fuel, turn off ignition, break pattern, driver's behavior and all other details that can be checked in real time by the manger, they indirectly pressurize the driver to drive in a correct way.
Fleet GPS system are turning to be owner and manager friendly as they not only help reduce the operational cost but also helps in growth of the company. It helps in making delivery in right time thus satisfying customer and also saves them from any type of lawsuits.
