Optimize your fleet size by following this simple methodology.

In Fleet Management the fleet size is not just calculating the number of vehicles needed for your business or task, or the number required at a time and at a location, but a strategy to get the right quality vehicles over a plan and period to optimize your operations and costs. The plan is drawn over the number of kilometres run or hours of operation per day/month/year.

A number of factors impact this number or count of the fleet as some need to calculate the hours run instead of distance done. In another scenario for the company that operates seasonally it calculates the utilization threshold annually.

Find Utilisation Threshold of Fleet

By determining what vehicles are being used for what task and how often, the company can analyse and categorise each vehicle into segments. This helps determine the ROI and profitability and whether the vehicles are being used fully. The utilisation reports generated by a Fleet Management Software will help here to analyse. The customizable reports will hold all the information required to determine the threshold of utilisation.

Find out the number of vehicles underutilised

This factor is determined by comparing the vehicles utilization against the set threshold, to find out underutilization or overutilization. Consider whether the vehicle serves multiple locations to determine a pattern of utilization. This will also help to share a vehicle between drivers on different shifts. This will help you set the goals for vehicles and drivers.

Re-evaluate to come to the right conclusion

Re-evaluation can be done by answering some questions like, what is the assignment of each vehicle, to determine whether a smaller sized or more fuel-efficient vehicle can be used. Find out the Cost-of-Ownership of the vehicle and how many vehicles suffer downtime for maintenance. All these aspects can be determined from the data and insights got from the fleet management system.

Implement the decided changes

All this information and evaluation will help you rightsize your fleet and also determine what type of vehicles are needed in your fleet, considering overutilization and underutilization of each vehicle. By implementing your decision, you will set right the discrepancies in location and utilisation, and whether drivers can be shared for a vehicle. Onboard the drivers too to help implement the changes effectively.

Future Ready Approach

Consider the future when you are increasing or decreasing your fleet size by looking into trends, demands and up-to-date information collected. The FMS solution should be scalable to support your growth and plans in future, like what Trinetra Wireless provides you via their FMS software. For whatever mix of assets and drivers, the application would optimise your operations.

Use benchmarking to improve your fleet performance and management.

Fleet Performance Management Software

It is essential to evaluate your fleet operations’ success year over year and also how it compares to other operators, to remain competitive and profitable. One way to track your progress is by setting benchmarks and process to support it. The benchmark is an important metric to which data can be compared to determine how the fleet operations are performing. With benchmarks you track your operation costs better, determine vehicle replacement time and also compare with other operations.

Operating Costs can be Tracked. Operating costs include a host of factors that include labour costs to vehicle downtime and more. Measure your fleet operations to determine its performance and to ensure your company is on the right track. A company’s fleet manager constantly works to find ways to economise operations and improve the ROI.

Replace Vehicles on time. By tracking the costs on each vehicle, you can prevent overspend on an asset. The benchmark will help identify the vehicles you are spending more than necessary. If fuel expenses, repairs and parts are more than they should be, then it is time to replace the asset, as it has become too expensive to keep it running. On the other hand, if an older vehicle is not expensive to run as per the benchmark, you can keep the vehicle active in the fleet for more time.

Compare with other operators. Keep your benchmarks as per industry benchmarks, to help you determine how your operations compare with other operators. By tracking your data and comparing with benchmarks, you’ll know if you are spending more on labour, repairs or parts and whether vehicle downtime is longer than others. Update information and benchmarks will help you evaluate your internal process and help to make changes, if necessary.

An effective fleet management software (FMS) is needed to help your vehicles perform well and generate the income required for your company. The fleet management program can use benchmarks to manage, compare and improve your fleet business and identify cost savings. Modern Fleet Management Solutions use telematics in helping to diagnose fleet vehicle condition and maintenance issues. With the help of benchmarks and GPS enabled telematics, remote monitoring of vehicles will lead to better vehicle utilisation and better driver management, which all add to cost savings and a better ROI.

Trinetra’s FMS software uses a telematics effectively and is a web-based platform for easy accessibility.

How to manage your fleet with less staff.

The modern fleet manager is consistently working to economise operations and improve the ROI of the company, but when a calamity hits the economy, the challenges being faced change altogether. The Covid-19 pandemic is a medical catastrophe that has hit most parts of the world leaving economies to run in crisis mode. The transport and logistics industry the world over is one of the hardest hit.

Fleet operators have to run on reduced budgets to make up for big losses caused by the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. Due to various reasons operators are forced to run operations with reduced staff. It may be owing to layoff or medical reasons, but the managers have to put the show back on the road. Managers have to face the challenges of the new normal caused by the Covid-19 virus outbreak.

It is difficult to get the same work done with lesser staff members. However here are some ways to follow to manage the situation as best as possible.

First is to review & evaluate operations. One of the first things the fleet manager or owner has to do is to review and evaluate the operations and process. Find out tasks and processes that are duplicated at multiple points or by employees. Identify the obstructions in the process and areas where more time is taken. Get inputs from your staff and make a list of improvements to be done. Discuss all this and work with your staff to make the process efficient.

Implement and make best use of FMS software. Use your existing, or if not immediately implement, the fleet management system software to streamline operations and make them more efficient. Your list of improvements and innovations can be implemented through the FMS software. The maintenance process too can be streamlined by analysing all information about the vehicles, stored in on place (centralised). It will reduce time in paperwork and documentation and make all repair and vehicle information readily available. It will save technicians time and streamline the parts inventory and related stock.

The system will support a preventive maintenance schedule that will improve the life cycle of vehicles and prevent unplanned downtime of the fleet. The system’s data will alert the maintenance technicians for any discrepancies and identify issues before it occurs.

Telematics support. Modern FMS uses telematics in helping to diagnose fleet vehicle condition and maintenance issues. It is helpful to run the system with lesser staff members and support technicians to achieve more work. It can speed up vehicle inspections and reduce its numbers. It can help identify severity of issues and prioritise its rectification or repairs. Telematics also support in remote monitoring of vehicles that leads to better vehicle utilisation and better driver behaviour, which all tends to cost savings.

Trinetra’s FMS software uses a telematics enabled system run on a web-based platform. This Fleet Management software, with mobile app integration, has many benefits to economically run fleet operations in any industry.

Cut running cost of freight transport vehicles by smart routing and scheduling.

Freight Transport Fleet Management

At the end of a financial year, businesses reflect upon what better ways can be adopted to change and improve processes and also manage data better, to stay ahead of the competition in the coming year. Businesses should take advantage of technology like Fleet Management System (software) that provides a routing and scheduling optimising solution to cut down operating costs. It helps to reduce fuel consumption & emissions, improve resource allocation & mileage besides the ROI for fleet business.

Trinetra offers a Fleet Management System software that lowers operating costs across a wide range of industries, sectors and distribution systems. We have put up a list of ways that utilizes fright transport vehicle with optimal scheduling and routing to cuts costs and make better use of assets.

Design of the Distribution Network.  Take a good look at your distribution system that allocates your customers between distribution points or centres. Model the network of distribution centres and depots to optimise routing. Utilise the records and history of orders to determine which customers can be served by allocating which distribution centre in the schedules and routing.

Route Optimisation. The FMS software with telematics helps to optimise Route Planning to reduce total mileage run by vehicles in the fleet. You can benefit by nearly 20%. So, deliver the same number of products with fewer runs and save time. Optimising the route, cuts fuel costs and carbon emissions, streamlines operations and helps to optimise vehicle usage.

Reduce Empty Runs. To reduce overall empty running of vehicles in a fleet, enable vehicles and drivers at multiple sites to work as a single integrated resource. Movements from different distribution centres can be combined into planned routes to reduce empty runs. Thus a driver returning from delivery can pick up another load back to the depot, to avoid empty runs, maximise vehicle utilisation, productivity and reduce mileage.

Improve flexibility. To streamline operations, you need to have a really flexible routing and scheduling system. The system must be able to accommodate an unlimited number of variables to chart the most optimal routes. Variables include – traffic conditions driver schedules, one-way roads, bridge height restrictions, school zones, public events, etc.

Integrate tracking & accurate rout plans. The more accurate the route plan the more realistic savings. The plan should reflect the real world using vehicle tracking (GPS-enabled) system and define planning parameters accordingly. The software can enable Geo-fencing to increase control and efficiency over the fleet operations.

Astute fleet managers & transport operators are continually on the lookout for ways to improve energy efficiency of fleets. since fuel costs account for nearly 60% of the budget allocated running cost. Fuel usage is regularly monitored (daily) as it is the main recurring cost suffered by any fleet. GPS empowered fleet management software, is able of mine data about operating vehicles, including handling which affects maintenance & efficiency of vehicles.
