In addition to using fleet fuel cards, knowing where your fleet drivers are at all times makes managing a fleet business much easier. With GPS tracking from Fuel Express, you can stay aware of where each vehicle is, where it has stopped, its idling time, mileage, and more.
If you’re trying to find the right drivers for your fleet, having a GPS tracking system that monitors each driver’s speed can help. If your driver is traveling over the speed limit, you’ll receive an alert. This lets you keep track of which drivers follow safety regulations and which could be a danger to others on the road. Always remember that a mandatory safety program is always a good idea for any new fleet drivers.
Because GPS tracking tells you the ‘miles per gallon’ fuel efficiency that each vehicle gets, you can be alerted to any mechanical issues that may arise. For example: If one of your vehicles continuously gets about 20 miles to the gallon and suddenly starts getting only 12 miles to the gallon, you can check to see what’s wrong before having to take it to a mechanic. This can save you both time and money.
If one of your drivers ever runs into trouble and needs the assistance of the police, the fire department, or an ambulance, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly where your driver’s vehicle is and direct help to his/her location. This location feature also helps in the event of a stolen vehicle: authorities can track the location of the vehicle and recover it. Location accuracy can also help a driver if he/she gets lost or needs to call our 24/7 customer service hotline for help.
In addition to knowing vehicle specifics like mpg or location, GPS tracking can help you increase the efficiency of your fleet. When you can track the time it takes to get from one destination to another, you can choose the right vehicles and drivers for each route and decrease your delivery times. Decreased delivery times will not only satisfy your customers, but also your turnaround. Also, because you’re aware of where each vehicle is, you can help your drivers get back on track if they get lost.
