3 benefits of job completion visibility

As any fleet manager knows, drivers are a transportation company’s biggest asset. Without them, the business would fall by the wayside. Having such a vital role in the success of your operation requires an enhanced level of trust. However, even the most skilled driver can make a mistake that ends up costing the company big. For example, a driver who was recently hired may have misunderstood company policy and used a company truck to complete a side job such as moving furniture after hours.

Drivers: Stop your engines! The hard truth about truck idling

It can seem minuscule and even natural to leave your radio on during lunch or air conditioning running during a delivery — especially in these hot summer months. But little tendencies like this can quickly add up to six billion gallons and over $12 billion of wasted fuel each year. Typically, truck drivers rely on idling to maintain the temperature of their cab while they sleep. However, nine states and Washington, D.C. have limited idling to between three and five minutes with another 14 states having separate restrictions for vehicles over 10,001 pounds, according to the National Conference of State

Geofencing: Protect Your Vehicle and Bottom Line

“Call me when you get there” has become an all-to-common request by fleet managers to their drivers. Making sure drivers arrive at their designated service locations on time with accurate loads is essential to customer satisfaction and the success of your operation — and could be the difference between spending and saving thousands of dollars a week. But without complete visibility into vehicle status and location along a route, it can be difficult to determine accurate arrival, departure, and idling times. Geofencing, or virtual perimeters around a physical location, enables back-office personnel to track and monitor assets from depot to
