THE FUTURE IS FLEET MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
Fleet Management Solutions
With the current transition of many businesses to the digital realm, many supply chain operations are also shifting to the digital world such as fleet management. We can simplify fleet management solutions as the process used to monitor fleets, such as commercial vehicles. Fleet management is a function for businesses and agencies that rely on transportation for their products or services.
Fleet management is the management of a company’s vehicle fleet. It includes commercial motor vehicles, such as cars, ships, vans, trucks, rail cars, etc. It includes trucks that transport goods and services from one point to another (trucks). In Kenya, several companies are dealing with fleet management. The most popular ones include All-Trans Kenya Ltd, CMC Motors Group Ltd, and Nairobi Garage Ltd.
It involves the day-to-day running of an organization’s vehicles on behalf of the organization or individual owners. The main objective is to ensure that the vehicles run efficiently at all times without compromising the safety and security of both the drivers and the cargo/passengers being transported by them.
In addition to that, the fleet management solution includes a range of functions, such as vehicle financing, vehicle maintenance, vehicle telematics (tracking and diagnostics), driver management, speed management, and health and safety management. Fleet management is a function that allows companies that rely on transportation for their business to remove or minimize the risks associated with vehicle investment. It improves efficiency and productivity while reducing the overall transportation and staffing costs. It provides 100% compliance with government legislation (duty of care) and many more areas related to the management of a fleet of vehicles.
Additionally, it can drive valuable benefits for organizations, such as increasing efficiency in vehicle acquisition, and fuel management, strengthening compliance, increasing employee safety, and reducing carbon emissions. It is an integral part of many industries. New advances in telematics technology and fleet management software are set to simplify and streamline the task. Advances in fleet and safety technology are transforming the industry at a foundational level.
Maintenance of a fleet can be expensive, but fleet maintenance software can help manage costs and keep vehicles on the road longer.
Fleet tracking software helps you monitor where your vehicles are, how they’ve been driven, and what maintenance needs to be performed on them. This information allows you to lower fuel costs, find out if drivers are speeding or breaking other traffic laws, and identify how best to optimize your routes.
Route planning and optimization are done as part of the management. It involves tightening routes to boost fleet productivity, designing routes and allocating vehicles, assessing missed stops and unnecessary stops, and generally viewing travel time.
Fuel is often one of the largest costs for fleets, which is why proper management of it is key. To manage fuel efficiency and reduce costs, fleets need to track vehicle idling, speeding, tire pressure, routing, and vehicle size, weight, and type.
Fleet maintenance is the management of policies and processes designed to keep company vehicles in safe and reliable operating conditions to protect drivers and residual value.
Fleets play a vital role in success across multiple industries, such as construction, landscaping, and utilities, among others. Drivers and the vehicle assets themselves ensure that customer satisfaction is met and exceeded. They are, however, an inherent risk. Whether it be a distracted driver or an unanticipated weather event, fleets (and their subsequent productivity) are at the mercy of safe driving conditions. A single accident can have ramifications not only for your business but also for those who share the road with your employees.
