Delivery is a business where efficiency is everything. Customers expect their goods to be delivered on time, and meeting these expectations is a must if the company is to make a solid profit. Anything that causes delays should be minimised or eliminated. Facilitated by GPS devices, timely vehicle maintenance can significantly reduce the number of irregularities and help the business grow.
Keeping the company's fleet in good condition is vital. Losing several vehicles, or even just one, due to unexpected breakdowns can result in considerable losses and complications in scheduled operations. In addition, using paper to keep track of the fleet's scheduled maintenance is cumbersome and time-consuming. There is also the possibility of making mistakes, which can lead to overdue maintenance, business disruption and unforeseen costs. In the worst-case scenario, driver safety can also be put at risk.
To avoid maintenance-related headaches and make life easier for customers, integrators offer a solution to the above problems. The process of fleet maintenance can be automated using Teltonika GPS tracking devices. The larger the fleet, the more attractive this solution is to the owner.
How it works - tracking maintenance schedules becomes easy by setting reminders when vehicles need service based on mileage or other parameters. Information about unexpected faults and problems is also sent to the owner so that they can be resolved quickly. The best choice for implementing this solution is an easy-to-install Teltonika OBD tracker. Data needed for implementation include:
- Odometer/driven distance. Based on the device you select, the data of driven distance will be calculated either using a virtual odometer solution or getting actual odometer data from the onboard computer.
- DTC (diagnostic trouble codes). You will receive information about faults or actual fault codes depending on the possibilities of the onboard computer.
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.
