A modern fleet is money in the bank if you’re not paying extra to get it. GPS fleet tracking is one way to modernize your fleet maintenance, in numerous ways, that pays for itself. These are just five ways GPS fleet tracking modernizes your fleet maintenance and more.

  1. Automates Maintenance Scheduling Process

The larger your fleet is, the more difficult it becomes to keep track of all the details and maintenance needs of individual vehicles within your fleet. The result is that some vehicles fall through the cracks and miss out on routine maintenance. When that occurs, your vehicles and drivers are at increased risk of costly breakdowns and accidents on the road.

  1. Monitors Driver Behaviors

Drivers can be rough on fleet vehicles. Many drivers do not drive your company vehicles the way you’d like them to. With GPS fleet tracking, you can now monitor their driving to make sure they’re obeying speed limits and driving in a manner consistent with protecting your vehicles and extending their lifespans. You can even create instant alerts that notify you instantly, via text message or email, when drivers are breaking specific organizational rules.

Since the National Safety Council began teaching courses on driver safety in 1964, it’s been the top leader in road safety. And, their goal is to get to zero fatalities by addressing the causes of crashes and how drivers, vehicles, technology and road systems play a role in creating safer roads. They encourage everyone to take life-saving measures and learn about traffic death trends.

Over 90 percent of crashes were due to human error, according to the National Safety Council.

Most of the errors drivers commonly make are:

  • Choosing incorrect defensive driving actions.
  • Detecting road hazards too slowly or missing them altogether.
  • Driving in an altered or distracted state (i.e. being distracted by a phone, inadequate sleep, driving under the influence).
