Being a great fleet manager doesn’t come easy. You are responsible, not only for the operation of the fleet but for the safety of the drivers and others that use the roads, to mention a few.

People are the heart of the business. Safety becomes a priority, when the drivers are safe, you increase your productivity. While roads may be perceived as unsafe, it is up to you as the fleet manager to be proactive about safety and ensure your drivers are aware of the rules/regulations of the road as well as company enforced rules.

Apart from safety talks, you need to adopt efficient maintenance plans, ensuring a well maintained fleet promotes productivity and safety. Sticking to proper maintenance schedules and ensuring the use of correct original parts by approved service centres.
