One of the major challenges for any transportation and logistics company is the effective operations management of its owned fleet of trucks, containers & trailers. These days fleet management and truck monitoring are not just limited to vehicle details entry and normal GPS-based tracking. New-age technologies such as vehicle telematics, help transportation companies get a real-time account of the tracking and diagnostics of the vehicle. 

A proper fleet management software system allows the logistics company to minimalize the risk associated with their vehicles. From tires, fuel, overall maintenance of vehicles, various document expiries, government regulations, etc. also can be managed through an efficient fleet management system. Each of the functions should be interrelated and integrated and should be optimized based on each company’s process and workflow.

The entire fleet details can be captured through a master entry.

Document & Dues:  Various important document details such as vehicle booklet, driving license, inspection documents, transit clearance papers, tax submissions, various permits, etc. should be stored digitally in a centralized system. Expiry and overdue alerts should be notified accordingly to the concerned authorities.

Tracking & fleet monitoring:  GPS based tracking is an essential vitality these days, your customer should be able to know where the truck is at a given point in time. There is much more than just location tracking & truck monitoring, today you can even get details such as driver behavior, condition of your cargo, tampering alerts, etc. on the go.

Maintenance: There should be a provision to record regular fitness checks before and after every trip. A proper job order request can be raised in case of any issue found. Every single detail can be recorded by the workshop authorities. We can even calculate the additional maintenance cost incurred due to a particular trip.
