9 Secrets Series: Optimising from A to B

SHARE

As a fleet owner, your day-to-day costs can quickly add up. Particularly when hidden and unnecessary costs are hurting your bottom line.

The amount of fuel wasted, how efficiently your staff drive, overpaying wages and how you keep track of it all, can make a huge difference when it comes to your ongoing expenses.

When you’re incredibly busy with on-site jobs and managing other areas of your business, it can be hard to identify what things aren’t as cost effective as they could be.

This series of blogs will look at how you can get a grip on such expenses and highlights nine surprising ways to lower your operating costs that you may not have even considered.

Secret 7: Optimising from A to B

When it comes to getting from A to B, are your drivers following the quickest and most efficient route? If not, how much fuel are they wasting in the process and what impact is this having on your carbon footprint and fuel bill?

To ensure your fleet is operating as efficiently as possible, a reliable GPS fleet tracking system could add huge value in a number of different ways. It can help you make sure that the fastest route, and the one that requires the least amount of fuel, can be quickly and easily identified so that you can allocate it out to the closest driver. Also, with the right information at your fingertips, you can provide your customers with more reliable information regarding arrival times for particular jobs so they know exactly when to expect a member of your workforce. 

Essentially, by taking more efficient routes, you’ll not only reduce your company's carbon footprint, but you’ll also save time and money and potentially provide a better customer service thanks to more accurate ETAs.
