GPS Tracking for Private Fleets

8 Jun 2022

Private fleets and GPS tracking were meant for each other. Below you find out why.

 What is a Private Fleet?

 Private fleets, according to the National Private Truck Council (NPTC), are fleets operated by parent companies whose primary business is not trucking. For example, a manufacturing company may operate a private fleet to distribute and transport its goods. Private fleets can be thought of as in-house truck operations for another business that does not exclusively provide trucking services.

If you own or manage a private fleet, you are always looking for ways to cut costs and increase revenue while not jeopardizing your employees. One common way that private fleets increase revenue is by selling the surplus capacity of your private fleet. For example, if you have a fleet of 50 vehicles and your parent company only requires 40 of them, using the extra 10 can bring in extra revenue for your private fleet.

Besides this strategy, one that does not apply to all private fleets, there is a great solution to increase productivity and optimize routes, cut fuel costs, improve driver behavior, and better manage your fleet as a whole. If you haven’t already guessed, the solution is GPS fleet tracking.

GPS Tracking for Private Fleets

 There are several significant benefits private fleets realize by using GPS tracking, including the below.

 Optimize routes: GPS fleet tracking tracks the routes of all of your drivers and can find faster, more efficient ways to get from point A to point B. This can save your business time, money, and fuel by finding faster routes and less-trafficked routes so that shipments are always on time.

Improve driver behavior: GPS fleet tracking technology can monitor your drivers by providing you with data related to hard braking, fast accelerations, and hard turns so you can know if any of your drivers are driving recklessly or in a fuel-inefficient manner. Once you know that drivers are not practicing good driver behavior you can better address and remedy the problem. This will keep your drivers safer while saving your business additional costs on fuel and repairs.

Maintenance alerts: GPS fleet tracking can also monitor and alert you about scheduled maintenance. This will make keeping track of miles and regular maintenance much easier and ensure that you never forget to maintain your vehicles when they are due.

Cut fuel costs: GPS fleet tracking will help you minimize fuel costs by optimizing your routes and rerouting your drivers away from heavy traffic so they are not stuck idling in stopped traffic. Plus, by monitoring driver behavior, you will be able to retrain or address any drivers that are not driving fuel-efficiently to better improve their driver behavior going forward.
