How is GPS enabled FMS better than OEM’s inbuilt tracking device?

Benefits of Fleet Management Software

Most fleet operators and logistics companies who seek ways and means to save money and time for their business, now resort to telematics and software applications, as it does make a big difference to productivity and profitability

In fact, telematics software is now a recommended tool in fleet management, owing to the benefits accruing for vehicle maintenance, security, and fuel efficiency. On the other hand, OEM telematics too is fast becoming a norm. OEMs are adopting telematics technology by embedding telematics devices in the vehicle they manufacture in their plants.

Advantages and challenges for OEMs

Embedded telematics has advantages, such as in vehicle insurance benefits. OEM telematics provide high level of data and monitoring of vehicle health and the sensors and functions are incorporated directly into the vehicle or engine. Smartphone connectivity with in-built communication equipment, on the driver dashboard, with an interface that provides alerts or failure warnings, would thereby improve driver involvement.

However, there are some issues involved in OEM telematics that make it rather appropriate for certain types of vehicles or fleets and not for all. It may not be suitable for a mixed fleet with various makes and models. The ‘one-size-fits-all’ offering cannot match to operators’ individual requirements. Uncertainty exists in the domains of data ownership and privacy as this strategy evolves. An aftermarket telematics installation has terms and conditions clearly defined.

How the Fleet Management Solution is the better option

The telematics provided by the fleet management solution provider is a complete solution and not just value addition by an OEM. Apart from vehicle tracking and monitoring, the solution focuses on the ROI it can offer to the user or fleet operator. OEMs will focus only on the vehicle primarily and not offer extra options and high customisation. The FMS solution on the other hand provides 99% customisation, which will be supported too, depending on the needs. Unlike fleet management solution providers, OEMs cannot provide dedicated personnel available for 24×7 support, specifically for GPS vehicle tracking applications. The fleet management solution also provides good vehicle diagnosis and mobile app integration to customers.

How GPS vehicle tracking helps in the monitoring of your cold chain logistics

GPS Vehicle Tracking Solutions for the Cold Chain Industry

Over the past many years cold chain management has gained importance in logistics and transportation as our lifestyle has undergone a paradigm shift. The cold chain is a supply chain where temperature control is a critical factor for the shipments in roadways involved. This temperature controlled system involves refrigerated production, storage and distribution. It is supported by facilities, equipment and vehicles that can constantly maintain controlled temperature and conditions uninterrupted.

Why monitoring is critical

Usually suppliers of the cold chain may require to track certain specific types of information regarding temperature or humidity, depending on the type of products they manufacture. The info on temperature and other environmental parameters, like humidity level, can affect the quality and condition of the particular roadway shipment type. GPS technology has been used in monitoring, helping to transmit and receive critical data in real-time. Analysing this data, suppliers and transporters can audit their supply chain process to identify incidents and activities that result in inefficiencies. This is where data logging can be used to make the monitoring and management of the cold chain easier.

Using GPS tech

Transport companies rely on GPS tech to keep a track of shipments in roadways in real-time. This helps them to keep clients informed about the progress of their consignments in transit. In the case of refrigerated truck, temperature sensitive products actually don’t last forever. Therefore, delays in delivery have an impact on the business leading to losses as in the case of certain pharmaceutical and food products.

To ensure the safety and compliance needed in cold chain assets involved in transport and storage, a reliable cold chain temperature monitoring system is vital. Cold chain monitoring telematics devices, combine GPS tacking technology and sensors to ensure critical assets are always monitored and kept in safe condition during transport.

What metrics can measure the success of your fleet ?

fleet management performance metrics

If you have a fleet management software supporting your fleet business, then you will be handling a horde of data and metrics that are generated every day. It could be overwhelming and may not even benefit you sometimes. That’s why you should choose the metrics that really can measure your fleets success. There are a few Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) you should watch out for.

Measure Your Maintenance

Tracking your fleet’s scheduled versus the unscheduled maintenance is critical. This is because it will show how proactive you have been instead of reactive, in maintenance, and which affects your costs over a period of time. The FMS software is a great support here.

If you can have 60 to 70 percent of your maintenance schedule gets done, it means that you are on track with your preventive maintenance plan. This benchmark shows that you are bringing in the vehicles for service in time, as per schedule, for trouble-free extension of life. This will save you money in operations, which you may incur in unexpected breakdowns.

Measure Maintenance Cost per Kilometre

Another way to measure the success of your fleet is by maintenance cost per kilometre. The lesser you spend per kilometre on maintenance, the better performing is your fleet. Your fleet may not hit the best mark, but the closer you come the better for you. So, the metrics here are critical.

By knowing this cost you will know how it will affect your profit & loss statement and help you determine what changes to make and when. As the maintenance cost increases you get to know that the asset is too costly to keep. Thus, it can help you to decide on when to replace fleet vehicles, cost effectively.

Measure you Fuel Costs

Fuel is what keeps your fleet literally running and one of the major ongoing costs incurred for your fleet operation. Monitoring fuel costs helps you to manage expenses with the help of the centralised software application. Fuel efficiency involves, both in monitoring fuel consumption, as well as improving driver performance and route mapping.

Measure Safety & Driver Behaviour

One of the top priorities for a fleet manager is safety, just as costs and maintenance are. Setting the KPIs surrounding safety and driver behaviour helps you ensure safety of vehicles, drivers and public on the road. The number of incidents should be closest to zero as possible, but sometimes accidents are inevitable. Telematics helps fleet managers to monitor driver behaviour and can set the parameters to measure. Retraining drivers on safe driving habits and setting safety procedures can ensure safety to a great extent, besides preventing violations and fines.

To Conclude

Trinetra Wireless offers such a customisable, reliable FMS software with  telematics technology and Data Analytics. The software enabled with GPS tech will help you to track each fleet vehicle, unnecessary stoppages and idling time.  Prevent diversions  and keep to the planed delivery route.

Compare one to another to find compliance to safety protocols and schedules.

Helps to identify areas of improvement

Evaluating with the driver scorecard helps identify drivers with problem areas. Fleet operators can post monthly reports and help drivers self-assess to improve driving habits and set goals for progress. Driver training too can be provided based on this.

Generating Performance Reports

The success of analytics with telematics is seen in the generation of reports. They can be based on the KPIs for daily operations. Some of the common metrics on sudden braking, sudden acceleration, sharp turning, unnecessary idling and over speeding.

Monitoring Fuel Usage

Fuel stays a major cost to nearly all fleet businesses, regardless of the industry they serve or the fleet size they maintain. The metrics discussed earlier contribute to measuring fuel usage. Unwanted driving habits can lead to excessive fuel spend. Driver behaviour affects the fuel economy of vehicles and changing the driver habits with retraining can benefit the company with savings in fuel spend.

Monitor Vehicle Health & Maintenance

Bad driving habits and unsafe behaviour has a negative impact on your vehicle’s health besides the excessive fuel consumption. Harsh acceleration or braking, over-speeding and harsh cornering increases repair costs. safe driving helps minimise maintenance costs and benefits the fleet operator.

Better Cost Benefits & Safety

Data collected from the vehicle monitoring system, reflected on the driver’s score card, can be used to help drivers learn safe driving and behaviour which percolates into cost benefits and savings in terms of fuel, repairs and fines.

Easy Temperature Monitoring in Vehicle Transportation, Storage of Perishable & FMCG Products

Fleet Vehicle, Container & Truck Temperature Monitoring System

Transport companies and fleet managers have a challenging task in transporting FMCG & perishable goods over various geographic areas. The transportation methodology is becoming important as the goods have to reach their destination in proper condition to be further consumed by the end user. It is important to have records of the parameters like temperature, or humidity to which the goods have been subjected to. Perishable pharmaceuticals & foods are transported through a climate controlled condition via a cold-chain that involves trucks, storage warehouses and others. If the product is spoiled on reaching the end-customer, it can lead to lawsuits, or in food poisoning and other results that could be damaging or negative. FMCG and perishable goods may be kept in temperatures varying from 5 to 50 degrees C, over maybe short or long distances. Measuring the freshness is a difficult task as there is lack of visibility across the supply chain.

This is where the role of an asset monitoring system comes handy. This system can be in the form of a Fleet Management System (FMS) enabled with a software that uses GPS tech.

With the help of fleet management software and IoT devices the parameters can be monitored, recorded and stored for verification later. Some devices work in real-time giving the managers up-to-date information which is used in data analytics and accessible by many users, from various devices. The monitoring system and other modules in the software increase the value of the supply chain and results in better ROI for the stakeholders.

Enhancing the value of the supply chain

Many perishable goods, medical and FMCG products when transported, need to be kept at controlled temperatures from point of origin to destination point. The logistics industry calls this the ‘cold chain’. Here there is a constant risk of failure and the possibility of the goods or products being damaged. This is where a real-time tracking and monitoring system is important to keep everything in control and to quickly react to emergencies. For instance, an asset monitoring system will add immense value to the cold chain as it can include refer trucks, containers and cold storage warehouses. At any point if there is a brief temperature breach it could result in damage to the product. The connected devices used in this monitoring system generates valuable data constantly to be processed eventually by the software application hosted on servers.
