Helpful Tips to Improve Fleet Operations

After two days of excellent conversations at the latest Accelerate! Conference, the main take away for people trying to improve fleet operations is time efficiency. The general feeling is that most people are quick to blame ELD for fewer miles per month for drivers, but some feel like it goes back further than that.

For years companies housed their products/materials on property, however as companies went lean the pressure was shifted to trucking. Drivers were forced to deliver on a stricter timeline and the evidence shows that they are dwelling more.

It is my thought and I see to prove with data that this switch to lean processes is to blame for fewer driver miles per month. Then along with Omnitracs, it is my hope that we will be able to help drivers become more efficient. This way we may be able to solve the driver shortage with more efficient drivers rather than more drivers.
