A new generation of fleet tracking and management systems has made it possible for operators to better manage their drivers while reducing fuel consumption, improving safety and regulatory compliance, and optimizing vehicle and driver utilization. In the current economic environment, even marginal savings on fuel or maintenance costs can mean the difference between a profit or a loss for many fleet managers.
"A company can expect improved productivity, lower operational costs, improved safety, and simplified compliance," says Norm Ellis, vice president of transportation and logistics sales and services at Qualcomm Enterprise Services. "If you get one more stop in per day or can get 2/10 of a mile per gallon more out of the truck, those improvements drive hard dollars right to the bottom line. That said, the key point is that the systems provide data and information that help companies manage their drivers and assets better."
