Fleet management system allows you to optimally utilize every vehicle of your sleep right from their purchase to scrapping and get real-time information about their location, operating conditions, and communication with the drivers. PL Solutions provides its clients with advanced fleet management solutions that can help boost their profitability and operational efficiency.
As we move towards the era of hyperconnected supply chains, it is necessary for logistics companies to have a 360-degree view of their fleets. A fleet management system enables them to gather live updates regarding each truck’s position, their fuel consumption rates, and the condition of the items being carried. This data is also being required by consumers. Also, fleet management systems allow coordination with the central facility for smoother management. All of these reasons have together contributed to the high demand for fleet management software across global markets.

Facilitate Communication Between Fleet Members And Central Office
The fleet management software allows your drivers to communicate internally and with your central office location as required through the mobile app. This is an extremely useful feature since the drivers can be alerted if they didn’t notice any issue with their truck. On the other hand, drivers can also reach out if an unexpected emergency or changes in the trip route occur.
Automate Transport Management Workflows
You can automate the TMS workflows like scheduling maintenance, planning refueling through the trips, and many other tasks using a dedicated FMS tool. Bi-directional data transfer and event-based triggers are the primary factors for setting up automation workflows in your TMS.
Ensure Adherence To Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Norms
Many countries require logistics companies to follow comprehensive compliance conditions for operating like ELD and Fuel Tax Credit reconciliation. You can ensure full compliance with the help of data collected by onboard linked units.
One of the biggest beneficiaries of implementing a fleet management system is vehicle maintenance planning and costs. Every data regarding the truck is collected and synchronized using GPRS for automating fault finding, maintenance, and extending any preemptive measures on a real-time basis.
The FMS will also act as a database for your drivers and other staff members. It will also help in payroll processing with the help of surveillance and ID authentication. It helps establish the availability of your drivers for various routes and also gives them a chance to put forward their preferences for the routes and trip timings.
The system will also auto-generate the invoice amount based on the distance traveled, freight carried, and pricing model applied. The bills can also include any extra charges based on service requests made by the client. It is shared with the head office and client on an immediate basis or as configured.
