What is on your 2017 “most wanted” list? Have you pondered this question yet?
I was recently reading an article in FleetOwner Magazine about the Most Wanted Safety Improvements heading into 2017-2018. Much of the list included things you might expect such as: reducing driver fatigued related injuries, increasing the usage technology that prevents accidents and eliminating driver distraction.
To no surprise, many of the items mentioned involve technology. More specifically, technology working for the driver (and the truck) not against them. There’s no doubt that one of the biggest industry trends is a driver that’s better connected with a truck and a truck that’s better connected to the road.
The other thing you will notice about this list is that the safety items mentioned impact everyone – not just the drivers or Fleet Managers. Other motorists, and ultimately clients, are affected. Safety is something that will always have it’s own list and will always be a hot topic.
But What About Maintenance?
Much like safety, fleet and truck maintenance is something that involves everyone. In fact, I would tell you that from my experience safety and maintenance go hand-in-hand. The driver, the Fleet Manager and other motorists – they are all impacted.
So what’s on your most wanted maintenance improvement list?
Are you searching for a fleet maintenance company that provides better communication?
Are you looking for a partner that understands technology and can help you deploy it in a way that works to your advantage?
Or how about a maintenance company that works customer hours, not shop hours?
The bottom line is that when your fleet isn’t moving, it isn’t making any money. So if you feel like your current maintenance solutions provider is falling short in delivering on your most wanted list, I’d tell you that there’s money being left on the table.
