Fleet Management in 2017
Wednesday, December 21, 2016

As the year comes to a close, it’s a good time to reflect on what worked well, what changed, and where we are headed. 

 

Safety was at the forefront of everyone’s mind in 2016. Reports indicated a 4% increase in truck-involved crashes from 2014 to 2015, pushing for change for the sake of fleet drivers and other motorists.  Fleet managers stepped up by implementing policies, training, and safe driving rewards that will drive us into the future.

 

ELDs or electronic logging devices continued to spark controversy.  Within the next four years, regulations will require increasing use of ELDs, beginning in 2017.  By December 17, 2017, drivers recording HOS (hours of service) will be required to do so with ELDs instead of paper logs.  Fleets are investing in devices and training to stay compliant and retain their drivers. 

 

Telematics is still fairly new to the fleet vehicles scene, but it’s quickly changing fleet management.  By integrating GPS, computers, and mobile devices, telematics uses data to increase productivity and reduce costs.  Fleets not making the shift will find themselves left in the cold.

 

We are looking weathering the changes and serving your fleet in 2017.

TESTIMONIALS

“I’m in the Coffee and Refreshment business, not fleet management. It was a relief the day that I turned things over to Fleet Care. The quick turn around on repairs keeps my drivers efficient and productive by not forcing them to waste time loading and unloading their trucks. The repair and maintenance records that they provide help me to determine which trucks to keep and which to dispose of during our bi-annual fleet audit. Their free pick-up and delivery is a life-saver and they also notify me of warranty repairs and help transport to and from dealerships for these types of repairs. The benefits that Fleet Care provide have reduced my headaches, strengthened my bottom line and allowed us to grow our business."
