A key component in cost-effective fleet management is encouraging your drivers to actively participate in helping you keep costs down. Because the fuel budget does not come out of their pockets, drivers may not be inclined to take the shortest route, use fuel cards, or turn off the engine when they will be stopped for long periods of time. Taking steps to improve driver accountability can help you boost profits and reduce expenses.

Although it’s important to operate efficiently and reduce the amount of time it takes to get from one customer to the next, speeding is not the best way to accomplish this. GPS fleet tracking provides multiple features to help combat this unsafe driver behavior. In fact, service companies can significantly reduce the incidence of accidents simply by implementing a vehicle tracking system.
