3. Maintenance Planning
Taking care of the equipment in your fleet is essential, and this starts with routine maintenance and regular inspections. Trailer maintenance can be managed through digital maintenance programs to streamline this process. Digital maintenance software is designed to automate the maintenance scheduling process to ensure that every trailer is brought in and maintained on time, helping to ensure compliance and reduce unscheduled downtime.
The maintenance planning tools allow you to create scheduled maintenance events based on time or distance travelled and also incorporate digital inspection tools so any defects can be reported instantly and rectified quickly.
4. Alerts and Notifications
GPS trailer trackers are designed to protect trailers from being lost or stolen, and help to keep equipment and freight safe with tools like geofencing and calendar templates.
Geofencing is a geographic technology that allows you to draw digital boundaries around specific areas, and you can monitor when trailers leave or enter that location. You could geofence a specific job site, depot, city, or beyond, and receive alerts when a trailer enters or leaves that location. You can also setup timeframes when your trailers, or group of trailers shouldn’t move, using a calendar template tool. If a trailer moves during that time you can receive alerts.
5. Analytics and reporting
Like other fleet management tools, GPS trailer trackers can provide valuable data about the usage and safety of your trailers, and it is important that the software has the analytical capability to turn this into useable insight. It is important to ensure that the software not only enables you to see current location and status, but gives you easy access to historical reporting, this is particularly important when using the data to assess capacity requirements.
