Simply put, it costs you plenty when a driver can’t use their fleet vehicle. Unexpected downtime due to mechanical problems and accidents results in hard costs to your fleet that can be easily measured (ex. towing, repairs and rentals). The soft costs, such as lost productivity and revenue, can have a significant impact on your entire organization as well.
Finding a way to track and limit the amount of downtime through proper preventive maintenance, advanced data analytics and proactive downtime tracking lowers your overall day-to-day operating costs.
It also controls a vehicle’s total cost of ownership and your organization’s overall bottom line.
