As a business owner your one goal is safety. Whether its my drivers, or the other drivers on the road, safety is the absolute paramount of my goals. Along with safety, the other major goal is efficiency. Get my product to my customers as safely and quickly as possible. My concern though was how do I monitor my drivers to ensure they are safely getting the product to the customers? How do I make sure their vehicle speed is within the law?
Fortunately there is an answer. The Fleet Management System is a standard interface that tracks many different components of a vehicle including speed, acceleration, braking, and fuel level. I don?t have to be sitting in one of my vehicles to accurately see just how the vehicle is performing. Technically I can be in many places monitoring the safe operation of my vehicles all at the same time.
This is of vital importance to any company in the shipping or transporting industry. As an employer I don?t have to worry about the performance of my vehicles when I am not around. The drivers are 100% responsible for maintaining safety and staying within the laws in order to get product to customers in the best way possible. I can also monitor vehicles that may be going slower than normal due to unforeseen traffic circumstances or accidents and properly notify my customers of exactly what is happening out on the road.
The Fleet Management System not only makes the shipping industry safer, but it also transmits vital data that could not normally be accessed. It has revolutionised the industry and made everyone involved safer and more efficient and that is the ultimate goal. It is the joy of every Fleet Manager however, to have a successful and fine running cooperation.
