Managing a company’s fleet of vehicles, including commercial vehicles such as cars and trucks, is by no means an easy task. However, with good managerial skills, the benefits are endless. For starters, fleet management includes financing and maintaining both vehicles and drivers. This includes managing the health and safety of drivers, fuel, speed, tracking and diagnostics. Fleet management services are a great benefit to companies that have transportation as a major part of its operations. Through utilizing fleet management services, such companies can improve their productivity and overall efficiency by reducing staff, transportation costs, and the risks associated with investing in vehicles. These services can be offered either in-house or via outsourcing. One of the most important parts or functions of managing vehicle fleets is the ability to track vehicles. It is important for those offering such services to be able to locate vehicles belonging to the fleet at all times. Tracking location, speed and direction using Global Positioning Systems (GPS) technology helps to ensure efficiency. Satellite tracking technology is also used in many cases, but is more expensive than GPS tracking. Satellite tracking does, however, provide more real time updates concerning transportation. Managers are able to see the actual vehicle in transit and so are always aware of its positioning, estimated time of arrival and other important pieces of information. Fleet Management services should also insure vehicles in case of incidents such as theft.
