A more efficient distribution business
The tools to manage your mobile workforce
Whether you’re a multinational business making tens-of-thousands of deliveries daily, or a small courier company delivering a handful of parcels locally, fleet management solutions can help you maximise the efficiency of your operation. You need a fleet management system that can handle the logistics of a growing business. Create optimised routes for every vehicle, update routes quickly for changing traffic, and manage it all in real time.
Helping to lower costs and doing it faster.
How can distributors control costs?
With multiple vehicles making multiple drops, costs in fuel and maintenance are exponential – the more you have and the more you do, the more fuel you use and the more wear and tear your vehicles experience.
Our fleet management solution can help reduce excessive idling, flag excessive speeding violations and track harsh braking to help make the most out of your fuel spend and ensure your drivers go about their day safely and efficiently.
What’s more, is through our hours worked reporting, you can see the actual hours a vehicle is in operation, helping to eliminate inaccurate payroll and reduce labour costs.
Fleetmatics is so handy for planning jobs in the morning or the night before. I can log on, see who’s going to be doing what job based on the area it’s in and create the best route for each technician. It makes it so much easier.
Look after your drivers, and they’ll look after your business
Solutions to make your driver’s time behind the wheel safer, easier.
Getting a van or truck from the distribution center to a customer stop is tougher than it looks. Your drivers are under a lot of pressure to deliver on time, stay safe and meet stringent compliance mandates. To keep good drivers, give them the tools that make their job easier – paperless compliance, comprehensive navigation and safety alerts.
Our mobile solutions are available for most popular devices, from smartphones to tablets. Our commercial navigation software understands the needs of truck drivers with road restrictions, routes, route feedback and last-kilometre guidance right down to which entrance to take when accessing a customer site. Digital vehicle inspections reduce the paperwork burden and advanced maintenance alerts warn drivers of potential issues before they become a problem.
Help improve safety, avoid fines and improve your reputation.
Whether it’s helping your drivers stay within their driving hour limits or making sure they do their pre-trip inspections, compliance can impact on your workers in a lot of different ways. Our compliance solutions make it easier for your drivers to get through the workday safely, and without incurring fines or out-of-service vehicle violations.
