Fleet Maintenance Schedules (Delivery)

Fleet Maintenance Schedules (Delivery)

Intro

Delivery service is a business where efficiency is everything. Customers expect their goods to be delivered in time and meeting these expectations is a must if the company wants to make a solid profit. Anything what causes delays should be minimized or eliminated. Facilitated by GPS devices, timely vehicle maintenance can greatly reduce the number of irregularities and, thus, help the business grow.

Challenge

Keeping the company’s fleet in good condition is vital. Losing several vehicles or even one of them due to unexpected breakdowns can cause considerable losses and complications in scheduled operations. Moreover, using paper to keep the record of the fleet’s scheduled maintenance is cumbersome and time-consuming. The chance of making mistakes cannot be ruled out either what can lead to overdue maintenance, disruptions in business and unforeseen expenses. In the worst-case scenarios, the safety of drivers can also be put at risk.

Solution

To avoid maintenance-related headache and make customers’ life easier, integrators offer a solution to the above-mentioned problems. The process of fleet maintenance can be automated with the help of GPS tracking devices. The larger the fleet the more attractive this solution is for the owner. Tracking maintenance schedules becomes trouble-free by setting reminders when the vehicles need service based on mileage or other parameters. Information about unexpected faults and problems will also be sent to the owner, so they could be solved fast.

The best choice for the implementation of this solution is easy-to-install OBD tracker. Data needed for implementation include:

In addition to data used for monitoring fleet management schedules, OBD trackers can provide other useful information, such as fuel level, RPM, throttle position, coolant temperature, engine load, etc.

The functionalities of Bluetooth beacons and sensors are also very relevant in delivery service. Beacons help to ensure the safety of the shipped goods, while sensors measure temperature and humidity making sure the goods are delivered in proper condition.
