Manage Your Trailer Fleet with "Air Traffic Control" Ability: Track Trailers with Real-time Precision
Not missing dispatch opportunities and conducting Preventative Maintenance (PM's) using mileage data will enable fleets to improve their productivity while freeing up capacity to grow revenue. The problem of having air traffic control capability on your fleet has not been easy, until now!
Transportation enterprises are always seeking ways to improve their operating costs while balancing customer requirements. City P&D dispatch and maintenance requirements are two areas of an operation where improved efficiency means enhanced margins. If a solution existed that could provide visibility to dispatch and maintenance teams to execute their daily tasks with higher precision, then trucking companies could gain back revenue and profit that may be eroded by other external factors.
GPS alone is not good enough in 2016 and certainly intermittent communication via 2 to 5 updates a day should not be acceptable. Event driven communication in real-time that can be transmitted instantly to the right departments is what should be expected of systems today. Imagine a dispatcher being able to make a pick up knowing that a trailer was ready to be moved and they didn't have to send the driver back to the yard. What if a maintenance manager could know the mileage of each trailer and only do the required maintenance for that PM? Having real-time data and communication will separate best-in-class carriers from the rest.
This webinar will illustrate how innovative, connected technologies are being applied to enable the smart-connected trailer that will deliver a better customer experience, decrease frustration from dispatchers and drivers and improve the bottom line.
Attendees will learn:
- Maintenance best practices to ensure your fleet is productive and utilized
- Monitor and control your fleet with precision to make better decisions
- Cost savings to your organization by averting unnecessary maintenance and dispatches
