Fleet management problems you face every day
by Fiona Taylor
What are the biggest fleet management problems you face every day?
Running a business with a fleet of vehicles isn’t easy. Having a fleet of vehicles means that you automatically get fleet management problems. Read on to see how we can help you.
A fleet of vehicles can be a great asset for your company. Especially if you need teams to be mobile and work over various locations around the country. However it is not just transport companies that have fleet management issues – many other professionals drive as part of their business.
Main fleet management issues faced in business
Here are some of the main fleet management problems that businesses face on a daily basis;
Costs – the need to lower costs but still continue to give a high standard of customer service
Safety – keeping the drivers, and members of the public safe, as well as ensuring the vehicles are safe from theft and unauthorised use
Productivity – fleet managers need to organise the work that is distributed. As well as making sure customers needs are met, they have to plan the day as efficiently as possible.
Budget – you must make sure that your spending is in line with agreed budgets, and make savings where possible
Environment – be aware of, and reduce your companies carbon footprint
How can Satmo help?
Vehicles are an absolute necessity if your business needs to get people to site to provide your services. But these vehicles generate costs in fuel, maintenance as well as wear and tear. Drivers may need training so you can ensure that they are driving safely, and efficiently. The way that they drive will affect how members of the public perceive your business. Therefore it’s important to lay down some ground rules.

- Full reporting suite of management reports showing you idling time, carbon footprint, and out of hours usage to allow you to view the full picture of your fleet.
