Improve Fleet Management Efficiency with Tranzaura and resource planning
You can use Tranzaura’s fleet management efficiency suite, particularly Resource Planning to match the trucks and engines to the routes rather than sending whatever truck happens to be available.
Efficiency is a byword for any fleet manager, whether the fleet is small or large. There are always ways to improve the time, cost, or output of any process. Tranzaura’s fleet management software suite is made to improve efficiency; you can uncover hidden inefficiencies in your fleet that are time consuming or expensive, automate slow administrative tasks and reassign time to other areas of your business. Intelligent reporting, and access to real-time integrated data will allow you to make informed decisions.
At the most basic level, using the Vehicle Check app will cut down massively on the time spent on paperwork – whether you’re still using actual paper forms, or Word documents or PDFs, getting rid of them and replacing them with an on-the-spot app will cut out hours of work. And this isn’t just on the fleet manager’s side; drivers can get on the road in a fraction of the time.
Route planning for smooth roads, avoidance of congestion, and places where vehicles tend to be idling can make huge improvements in fleet efficiency too. Let drivers know they should turn off engines if they expect to be standing still for a long period of time via Driver Connect, and check telematics records to see where this might still be happening. Optimal speeds can also change consumption – there’s a “too slow” as well as a “too fast” for any vehicle.
It’s important to match the vehicle to the journey, when possible. It’s never efficient, for instance, to transport a small load across a short distance in a 45-foot trailer. A smaller, maybe even electric vehicle would be a better option for moving this kind of load. Generally, transporting shipments in vehicles with smaller engines can be more efficient; many trucks are overpowered for the routes and deliveries they take. You can use Tranzaura’s fleet management suite, particularly Resource Planning to match the trucks and engines to the routes rather than sending whatever truck happens to be available.
The more of the apps you use, the more efficient your fleet management becomes. Intelligent reporting is one of the areas where more data leads to better decision making – without getting bogged down in the details. Tranzaura’s analysis allows you to pick out the trends and informational points that will make a difference.
