Ontruck, a European digital road freight platform, has rolled out a new free web tool to help fleet managers increase volumes of loads and improve their overall business ratio. A pilot of the tool conducted with 15 fleets has shown that each fleet doubled their assigned loads per week.
The fleet app is a web version of the existing carrier app, which Ontruck launched in 2016. The tool has been designed with the needs of fleet managers in mind, providing a real-time visual overview of the fleet including vehicle locations and loads, delivery tracking, estimated costs and live notifications of delays. With one dashboard, managers can monitor their entire fleet without needing to access multiple devices and logins.
“Since the beginning, our app has helped individual carriers to fully optimize each aspect of their business, offering them loads based on their availability and location and leveraging real-time GPS data to help them to reduce empty kilometers and increase their daily capacity,” said Javier Escribano, Chief Product Officer at Ontruck. “Now, with this web tool, we want to make each of these advantages available to our fleet managers to help them work with maximum efficiency and ease while increasing their volumes of loads and business ratio”.
From the fleet app dashboard, managers can access the database of available loads and request those in which they are interested. Ontruck assigns these loads based on the geographic area in which the fleet is operating as well as the type of vehicles available. Once the offer is accepted, the fleet manager may then assign a driver and vehicle to each load and later upload the PODs.
