Are you still resisting the idea of implementing a GPS tracking fleet management system? You might believe that it’s just a more expensive way of doing what you’re already doing.
The truth is you can save many times over the cost of the initial investment. Don’t take our word for it. Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated (CCBCC) annually moves approximately 160 million cases to five production centers and 46 distribution centers across 11 states. The company’s use of a GPS-based fleet management system has resulted in a fleet cost savings of 20 percent.
Can you afford to pass up a chance to reduce your fleet costs by up to one-fifth of the total? Here are some of the ways GPS tracking generates fleet cost savings for CCBCC and other companies.
- Real-time asset tracking
Manual tracking of tractors and trailers is cumbersome and often inaccurate. CCBCC found that their asset checks were outdated within a couple of hours, with many units unaccounted for. GPS fleet management provides live tracking so you know where your assets are at all time.
- Improved productivity
GPS tracking can be used to calculate more efficient routing, reducing the number of miles traveled. It also provides real-time alerts about risky driver behavior, such as speeding or failure to close a seat belt that can result in accidents or fines.
- Reduced maintenance costs
Keeping track of scheduled maintenance for a fleet can be a full-time job in itself. A GPS tracking system generates customized maintenance reports and sends alerts when a vehicle is due for service. In addition, the program monitors fuel consumption so you can see any changes in MPG costs that may signal a problem.
- Lower overhead
A cloud-based GPS tracking system means little to no change in your company’s IT infrastructure. Once the GPS devices are installed in the vehicles, the system’s dashboard can be accessed via computer, tablet or smartphone. There is unlimited storage, so you have quick and easy access to all past records and reports.
