Since the advent of various technological advances in the field of GPS, telematics, and other tracking devices and applications, fleet managers have been able to increase the business efficiency. With vast flow of relevant and authentic data, fleet managers, operators, and owners have been able to maximize utilization of all assets and achieve greater ROI.

Most trucking companies have adopted fleet management system, also known as FMS for better functionality. Fleet management also offers a host of benefits to light duty vehicles, car rentals, delivery services, driving schools, school bus services and more.

For car rental companies and delivery businesses, it is pertinent that they know the location of their vehicle in real time. It helps to keep an eye on them, as well as ensure that the vehicle is following a predetermined route. It helps in customer satisfaction as they are kept in the loop and are informed of the delivery time.

Several fleet management systems provide real-time information about engine diagnostics, fuel consumption and waste management, and also monitoring of engine coolant temperature and battery level. This helps in arranging for maintenance of vehicles in due time, and avoid any major expenses in future.

Fuel management:
As most fleet management systems monitor the usage of fuel, it eliminates the chances of any fraud or discrepancy. The data related to fuel is recorded automatically, and in most cases cannot be edited by unauthorized person.

FMS helps in streamlining the entire operation of the fleet, from identifying idle vehicles, to easier allocation, establishing a route, keeping clients updated, generating important reports, as well as compliance with various rules and regulations. It also assists in optimal utilization of assets and better improves cost efficiency. When you know that a delivery van is sitting idle after having completed its route, before the end of work day, you can use this data to plan the next route to be more profitable and efficient.
