Ways GPS Fleet Tracking Reports Can Improve Driver Behavior

5 Dec 2017

A fleet manager’s job can be challenging since you have to keep up with your moving fleet. In order to effectively implement this task, you’ll need tools like GPS tracking to provide you with optimum monitoring ability. GPS fleet tracking solutions that come with distinct telematics offer you alerts, customized reports and live viewing so you can easily get immediate feedback.

Bad driving habits can get costly. Driving behaviors like idling, speeding, harsh braking, harsh cornering and hard acceleration can waste fuel and likely cost you money in traffic tickets as well. Furthermore, when your drivers get into a serious accident, there is the risk of liability that comes with stiff penalties.

A first step to improve the driving behaviors of your fleet drivers is to establish safety rules and measure them.  After you’ve established the safety rules, it can be tricky figuring out how to enforce them effectively.

Driver reports through GPS tracking can help measure safety. They measure how your drivers are performing according to the safety policy of your fleet company. Then you can determine which drivers require additional training. Remember, “You Can’t Manage What You Don’t Measure“.

Below are ways you can improve driver behavior with GPS fleet tracking reports. 

Aggressive Driving Reports

Your drivers don’t have to necessarily be speeding to drive unsafely. With aggressive driving, it can cause a dangerous situation for both your drivers and your company. GPS tracking technology can alert you of any sudden decreases or increases in speed which typically indicates your driver is driving aggressively. 

Zone Activity Reports

As your fleet drivers are coming in and exiting designated geofenced locations, you receive information on when and where it happened through the zone activity report. When clicking on the GPS tracking report, lists will be displayed with details all your zones and devices. 

Speeding Reports

The speeding report shows you all speed alerts that were triggered. Just set the alert up in the alerts menu to see the report data. To see only speeding incidents, go to “speeding report”. 

Excessive Idling Reports

If your drivers are idling excessively, this wastes fuel and will cost your fleet business money. The excessive idling report through the GPS tracking technology provides you with data on all vehicle idling incidents that are longer than a minimum specified time you designate.

Reliable and safe drivers are important to your fleet company. The implementation of GPS tracking will make your job much easier and you’ll start to see the positive difference in your driver’s driving behavior because of it. And, good driving behavior will help improve your business practices.
