Implementing a Fleet Management System to Minimize Operating Costs

How to Design a Custom Dashboard Report

As a business, whether you have one single vehicle or thousands of vehicles on your books, it can sometimes be a financial black hole. You pay a high price to obtain these vehicles only to watch them depreciate over the months. It is hard to appreciate depreciation, as it is a big contributor to a company’s bottom line. In the meantime you are also drawing funds away from the business in the likes of fuel, maintenance and accidental claims. Having a proper fleet management system to control and minimise costs, can make business expenses more manageable.

Geotab’s NFC (Near Field Communication) Driver Identification is an incredible tool that can be used to both incentivise drivers and monitor their behaviour. Any business that utilises a fleet of vehicles and employs multiple drivers, must ensure that their personnel adhere to the safety standards and parameters specified by the company.

Hijackings: Time for Industry Pushback

Hijacking and Fleet Driver Safety

Saw an article on truck hijackings and thought I would add a very brief view on this,  as a conversation starter, I am sure that a book could be written on this subject and that we have great minds in the industry that can address this problem collectively and very effectively, so here we go…

To me the most valuable cargo is in fact not the fuel or the cargo such as cigarettes, but the drivers that drive these trucks.

The criminals involved in these hijackings have on numerous occasions showed how ruthless they can be, and a life lost cannot be brought back, whilst cargo can be insured.
