How a Full-Featured GPS Tracking System Addresses Common Mixed Fleet Management Concerns
Fleet management can often be challenging for organisations operating a mixed fleet of vehicles. However, a mixed fleet tracking system with the right features can address many common problems. These are some of the key benefits to a fully integrated solution.
Relying on multiple systems can introduce inefficiencies into company workflows. Poor asset utilisation, workflow inefficiencies and inconsistent processes can all lead to wasted man hours and increased operational costs.
One of the best reasons to invest in a mixed fleet tracking solution is operational efficiency. By managing all vehicles and assets in a single system, fleet managers have a comprehensive overview of everything under their control. Additionally, time and money can be saved with more efficient work processes and fewer software training requirements.
Efficient routing is critical for many organisations’ bottom lines. However, companies using multiple systems will not have a complete picture of their fleet at a given time. This can result in extended routes, vehicles being oversized or underutilised for a particular task and similar issues that could be avoided with increased visibility.
Bringing all vehicle tracking information into one platform gives fleet managers a complete picture of their fleet. By accounting for all vehicles when making routing decisions, the best vehicle for the job can be selected every time. This is particularly helpful in fleets that use multiple vehicle sizes or mixed ICE and EV fleets where selecting a less than ideal vehicle for a given task can increase operational costs.
