Vehicle tracking is an IT Driven telematics solution to monitor vehicle on Digital Map with real time information of location, speed, movement and operation. Telematics is an integrated use of Telecommunication and informatics. It is applied in vehicles for monitoring the real time information and controlling them during transit. The signals are transmitted by GPS based Vehicle Tracking System paired with multiple Sensors.
In 21st century, everything is getting mobile. Be it a handheld device for communication, video streaming and information access or even for your home, which is now with technology movable as per convenience. We have advancement in information and technological sphere which have made things achievable and currently functioning very well, that once no one have thought off.
Large Enterprises usually have hundreds of vehicle in their fleet with huge driver strength to cater to transportation needs all across the country. Under the process, there are lots many challenges that come up which sometimes causes problem but also makes things standstill if not been taken care cautiously well in advance.
Following are the challenges in Enterprise Fleet Management
There is no doubt that IT Software Systems have made Industrial processes more efficient and at many places have increased the profitability of organization. Similar way, implementation of software systems and solutions in fleet management are very vital in saving time consumed in managing the activities and reducing the overheads and increasing the profitability.
Installing GPS Vehicle Tracking helps in route planning and finding the best responder to an event at any given time in case of Fleet Management. It helps in reducing time delays in reaching the destination because the right person is traveling to the right place; it also reduces fuel consumption as routes are shorter.
Save Fuel Costs:
Improved route planning, better Chauffeur Assessment and Convenient In-Time Response mean considerable savings on fuel costs. With surging Fuel prices, it is becoming very important to curb on wastage on it. Fuel siphoning is the problem faced by the fleet operators and with real time information and Mis records you can understand the pattern for particular Chauffeur. Also you can understand the fuel expenses and mileage for every vehicle and comparative analysis of the same helps you check the individual performances.
Giving a personal care to your vehicle not only increase its life but also can help reduce daily running cost. You may reduce up to 30% of fuel consumption with simple driving etiquettes. Following are the simple steps to take care:-
Control your Vehicle speed during transit. It’s been studied that fuel is burnt more rapidly at speeds above 60km/h, (as a rough gauge). Car burns 15% more fuel at 100km/h and 25% more fuel at 110km/h than at travelling at 90km/h on a highway. In city, the speed limit should be as per allowed speed limit on road for Vehicle safety and efficiency both.
a. Proper Inflated Tyre
Under inflated: The under inflated Tyre increases drag on car and therefore it requires more fuel. The Tyre gets heated and increases rolling resistance there by require more push to maintain speed therefore require more fuel consumption. Properly inflated Tyre may increase efficiency by up to 3 %. You may check in 1-2 week, the proper Tyre pressure usually mentioned below side of car door.
Over Inflated Tyre: The over inflated Tyre pose risk of vehicle handling while turning on road as it reduces grip. It causes insufficient traction and increases wear of Tyre from Center. When vehicle is loaded, it is benefit able sometimes when it is proportionate to the load on vehicle. It’s always good to maintain right pressure as per the load on the vehicle.
Breakdown in work flow not only causes loss in productivity but disrupt the whole process of days routine and job completion. Specially, in Transportation Industry, it is a routine activity which happens intentionally and unintentionally both. We may get to see immense no. of reasons for the vehicle breakdown during transit as what it is given by chauffeur and we are left with no other option except to believe them.
With surging Fuel Prices dependent on Global demand, the portion of spending on fuel in our budget is increasing day by day. Since after the government had decontrolled petrol price in June 2010, the only way left out for mango people of India to cut spending on fuel consumption is to efficiently use the resources dependent on Fuel. It is not just driving less help you reduce fuel expenses, you may follow approaches to share resources, optimize route, understand patterns and alternate mediums to reduce your fuel expenses.
